    On the 4th run with 48x and finally passed 1080cb and new record for that clockspeed. 7 points below your 49x score, bruh:D You like it? LGA - FTW @Phoenix:eek:
    [​IMG]

    Current Cinebench R15 numbers from Papusan's LGA Camp.
    42x - 954cb
    43x - 976cb
    44x - 999cb
    45x - 1019cb

    46x - 1040cb vs. @Phoenix's BGA + Steelseries Keyboard push 46x...[​IMG]

    47x - 1064cb
    48x - 1084cb
    49x - 1104cb
    50x - 1120cb
    51x - 1138cb

    For the records... From Alienware camp... TRIPOD and 4.3/4.4GHz:bigrolleyes:

    Hello,
    What are the safest and most stable settings for humble 4200mhz? Got bored by the default 4100... Thanks.
    Also, wouldn't the dragon center stand on the way of BIOS settings?

    Hello my friend :hi:

    The latest Dragon Center now limits you to 4.1 GHz whereas the older versions allowed 4.2 GHz. Either way, you wanna get rid of it completely because it keeps messing with the VR Current Limit setting it back to Auto which causes CPU Throttling under load.

    Here are the safe settings for a 4.2 GHz overclock

    CPU Multiplier / Max OC Ratio = 42X
    CPU Voltage = Adaptive
    Ring (ie. CPU Cache Frequency) = 42X (although there is a limit in MSI BIOS where the CPU Cache will always run 300MHz slower than the fastest core. Still, just set it to 42X
    Voltage Offset = -100mV
    VR Current Limit = 400 (100A), because in the BIOS, the value is divided by 4 so setting it to 400 means it shows up as 100A in Intel XTU, it's called Processor ICC/Cache Max in XTU
    Turbo Power Max and Short Power Max = 200

    Is that a skylake or kabylake? Assuming it's Kaby, otherwise you wouldn't be getting to 4.1 ghz "easily" on a 6820HK. For most, they top out at 4.2 ghz, and 4.3 ghz without an obscene amount of voltage would REQUIRE the unlocked Bios, or you would either be BSOD'ing all day and night, or the laptop just shutting off at heavy load.

    After you do what Phoenix says, make sure you don't have "EDP OTHER" in Limit Reasons, in Throttlestop (in red) during your stress test, or "Current Limit (VR)" throttling in HWinfo64. Some people, after uninstalling Dragon Center, were throttling anyway, even when VR Current Limit (ICCMAX) in bios was set to 800 (200 amps). They even tried "loading Setup Defaults", doing it again and it was STILL throttling.

    I had to tell to *WIPE* the entire CMOS data and start over from the beginning--only thing that fixed that cancer. Dragon Center had apparently written an "invalid" value to the Bios register and corrupted it, preventing any overrides from working.

    To wipe the CMOS, turn off the laptop. Hold down the power button and do not release it. The laptop will turn on, then turn off, Keep the power button held down for 45 seconds, then release it. Then wait 60 seconds for the power LED to "boot cycle", then wait another 60 seconds for the MSI logo to boot loop several times, until it's satisfied and you're in windows.

    From there, you will have to go back in the Bios and set all your stuff again. Then you're golden.

    Thanks, it doesn't seem to throttle with the above settings, but the notebook gets extremely loud during gameplay... Phoenix, could you also post safe settings for 4100 and 4000? I noticed that the notebook is more responsive without the Dragon Canter even at 3900 compared to 4100 with Dragon Center.

    Don't use MSI cancer software. The only good MSI branded software that should be installed is 1) SCM (required), 2) Silent Option (lets you control fan curves, WITHOUT messing up your overclock).

    Well, anything above 3900 gets thermally throttled with Voltage Offset = -100mV and VR Current Limit = 400 (100A). Can I use lower values for 4000 and less heat?

    To get someone's attention, either quote the post to which you are replying, or put the @ with no space before their name... like @Falkentyne, and they will be sent an alert that you are talking to, or about them.
