Windows 10: 2017 Hardware Thread

  1.    29 Mar 2017 #611

    ^Yeah, we paid off our house this past year. We have lived in it about 17 years. We had to replace the furnace and the AC this past summer, and the roof just happened in March. Will be doing windows here in the next year or so. So, fortunately these repairs are a bit easier to stomach when we don't have a mortgage payment. But I was also out of work for a while, and my son was diagnosed as Type 1 diabetic, so our medical expenses are going up, and my income was going down. Fortunately, I've been back to work for a month now, so I have checks coming in again.

    Nope, I'm not sure I will or not. Don't worry about me winning, I've never won anything.
    Actually I'd like to hear how that card performs out of the box, and Florida room temps.

    If you're running at 1080P, avoid games with a 60 FPS cap. GPU time. LOL.

    Unfortunately I'm all too familiar with fixed income and medical expenses. Been there done that twice. Luckily I'm retired military so the benefits help out with both living and medical expenses. Income producing hobbies also helps with finances

    Anyway good luck on the house repairs.

    Peace

    Over the top cooling is nothing to poo-poo on, it's always better than undercooling.

    I've been really disappointed in my standings in some of the benchmark threads lately, but help is on the way.

    Nice Steve, are you going to get a Z270A board and a Kaby-baby to be able to "really use" that card?

    What's wrong with a Z170 and an i7-6700K Skylake processor?

    I suspect my X99 and 5930K will be able to use it well enough.

    's what I have too, and works for me too.

    Ok an updater on my research about getting Vdroop during stress tests.
    I just found this:
    Adaptive Mode: Adaptive voltage affects voltage for Turbo multiplier ratios only. Unlike Offset, using Adaptive does not affect idle/light load Vcore. Therefore, Adaptive mode is the preferred method for overclocking Haswell processors if one wishes to retain dynamic voltage changes according to processor load without running into issues with idle Vcore becoming too low..

    There is one issue with Offset and Adaptive Mode that needs to be taken into account. The processor contains a power control unit which requests voltage based upon software load. When the PCU detects AVX instructions, it will ramp Vcore automatically beyond normal load voltage. There is no way to lock Vcore to prevent this if using Offset or Adaptive Mode. This is pre-programmed by Intel into the PCU.

    As an example, a CPU is perfectly stable at 1.25V using a manual voltage (static), if Adaptive or Offset Mode is used instead, it is impossible to lock the core voltage when running software that contains AVX instruction sets – stress tests such as AIDA and Prime contain AVX instruction sets. When the AVX instructions are detected by the PCU, the core voltage will be ramped an additional ~0.1V over your target voltage – so 1.25V will become ~1.35V under AVX load. If you intend to run heavy load AVX software, we recommend using Manual Vcore, NOT Adaptive or Offset Mode.

    Most of us do not run AVX related software, so this is a non-issue. Either way, dialing in an overclock using Manual Vcore to determine how much voltage the processor needs under full load is best - Adaptive or Offset mode can be used to match the stable voltage later on. Simply type the target load voltage into the entry box "Additional Turbo Mode CPU core voltage" to set adaptive voltage.

    So what might be happening is my 1.450, which is already in red numbers inside of BIOS(anything over 1.350 is red), gets pushed up to 1.550, and my board can actually only go to 1.52, so being so high at 4.9GHz @ 1.45 it gets dropped considerably to 4.0-4.1GHz @ 1.12v(at a 4.5GHz @ 1.35v, it's only downclocked to 4.2-4.3GHz @ 1.2v)
    So I can try first setting my voltage to "Override" check with OCCT, P95; and IBT, and then when I find a good stable OC, I can then turn "Adaptive" back on. Maybe even use Adaptive + Offset, for 24/7 use.

    For benchmarking, I can always use the sloppy method I have been doing, as the software doesn't use AVX instructions.

    Nope, didn't help
    And this was tested with only a 4.5GHz
    I tried several different configurations, but no joy, in fact some made it worse(a lot more heat than 4.9)
