Hello there.

I've got a problem when it comes to my CPU and i was looking for a hand when it comes to overclocks, My first time doing one you see.

(i7 2600k, 4.5GHz @1.360V)
It runs stable however under full load and under (50`c) it will drop to (1.332V) and then come back up to the voltage i set after i quit the benchmark or stress test/game

I don't have any LLC options set as i have no idea what they do and all the C states ect have been turned off including the thermal ones.

Perhaps it needs some more Voltage or LLC, I have no idea :p?

Yes, this issue is fixed by increasing the LLC.

What mobo do you have?

Are you SURE you need that much voltage to hit 4.5GHz on your chip?
Hi there, i have a Gigabyte Z68MX-UD2H-B3

Thanks for the reply, i think ive figured it out though as from what ive heard the voltage drops slightly during load and then increases to normal as a safety thing, if i put any LLC on it jumps all the way up to 1.420V constantly

I dropped to 4.4GHz and everything looks fine now, it only drops by 8-10 now and runs stable.

VID stays at 1.381 and 1.420 was the Vcore with any LLC on.
