    On my Hero X the ram goes in the A2 and B2 slots with two sticks. I didn't see how many sticks you have.
    I had mine in the A2 and B2 slots too. Now they're in the A1 and A2

    The manual seems to recommend A2 and B2 slots for two stick configuration...

    Ok guys, could do with a hand! 8700K VID is running at 1.439v!! This Bios is complex! Where do I start, lol

    Press F5 in bios and set it to optimized defaults. Save and exit

    It's the auto settings that run the voltage so high, it appears. Currently experimenting with manual mode fixed at 1.250v. Not sure is adaptive voltage is working, getting some monitoring programs up and running.

    Hi,
    1.250v might be a tad low for something that turbo's to 4.7
    I'd use at least 1.3v or better 1.35v with adaptive on the + symbol just in case it needs a little more you won't see the dreaded watchdog... bsod :)

    Hi Thrash,

    Yeah probably right. The lower I can go at this stage though to keep temps acceptable would be nice. Eventually a delid maybe. TBH I haven't done any real gaming yet and have no idea where things are sitting. This little guy is starting to let me know he likes to run hot though!

    Used Gelid-X TIM, I think I made a great job. :)

    I don't know what the rest of your BIOS settings are, but at 4.7, 1.25 sounds a little high to me. Depending on your ambient temps, your cooler should be able to keep temps under control if you keep your Vcore under 1.3V- 1.35V. It will get hot at the upper end of that, but within acceptable limits. Every board is different and every CPU is different, so nobody can tell you what voltage you need. You have to figure it out for yourself.

    Hi Essenbe,

    I need to spend more time in the Bios to study it, I am only doing things very briefly at the moment.

    What sounds to high? The core clock or the voltage?

    4.7 is fine. That CPU will do that at slightly over stock voltage, most likely. Stock voltage should be 1.12V. But, again, all CPUs are different and the other BIOS settings affect it. I would suggest you start out using Manual voltage. Manual will help you control the voltage, and find your lowest OC voltage. Once you find that you can change to Adaptive or Offset but you will know what voltage you are aiming for. 4.7 is nothing for the 8700K.

    The VID is not the voltage, and there is nothing you can do to change it. The VID is programmed by Intel into the CPU and just is what voltage the CPU is asking for at a certain overclock and level of stress. What you want to know is how much voltage the CPU is using inside Windows. That's why you use manual, you can control the voltage. It should be very close to what you set it at in BIOS. I use CPUz to tell me that.
