Managed to get PCX1 to 4.5GHz Core i7 4930K, Noctua NH-D15, Asus Rampage IV Formula, x4 8GB Crucial Ballistix Tactical VLP 1600 8-8-8-12 1T 1.35V, Seasonic M12II 850W & GTX 1070. At stock the CPU maxed out at 1.272V VCORE in HW Info. I kept the FSB at 100MHz and put the multiplier at 45 with an offset for VCORE voltage at 0.010V. In Prime95 and Firestrike Extreme it maxed out at VCORE 1.312V then continuously alternates between 1.296 and 1.304V with P95 running. Temps are usually around 59-69 on the 6 cores the highest single core spike was 70C. What do I you think for an everyday overclock? I have EIST running to cut everything down when the grunt isn't required. I have overclocked the GTX 1070 (iChill Herculez X3) to just over 2050 boost Firestrike Extreme/Unity/Furmark temps stayed below 70C. Can't get Intel Thermal Application Tool to run on Win10, does anybody have a W10 comptiable version? BTW I couldn't see a LLC option in the BIOS, anybody else have a Formula?
