CPU Vcore: Raising this helps keeps the system stable at higher CPU frequencies. However, it also increases the amount of heat your CPU produces. We suggest you keep Vcore under 1.4v depending on your CPU cooling solution. Most CPU’s should be able to hit 5.1GHz at this voltage, however CPU’s are not all created equally. Some may need more voltage, some less. Set Vcore to “1.35” to start. If you system is not stable raise the voltage in increments of .01 with a maximum of 1.4V. *Note that changing Vcore voltage also changes your Uncore voltage since they are on the same rail. 12
