Step 3 : Change Uncore frequency
Uncore frequency is the frequency of the non-core parts of the CPU , ie cache , memory controller , etc . It ' s also known as ringbus frequency . Generally you want to get your core up as far as you can without touching uncore . When you ’ re done , up uncore as close as you can get it to core frequency . From our testing using air and water cooling an Uncore Frequency that ’ s approximately 400 MHz lower than CPU frequency usually results in a more stable CPU .
The formula for Uncore frequency is CPU Base Clock * Uncore Ratio = Uncore Frequency
Enter “ Advanced CPU Core Settings ” under the “ M . I . T .” tab and go to “ Uncore Ratio ” and type “ 45 ”.
