Does anybody know anything about QPI/DRAM Core Voltage?

Ive been reading it should be like within 0.5v of the ram voltage! ... My ram voltage is at 1.66v

My problem is mine is on auto and my system is perfectly stable! ....

This is my problem. I have no idea what to set it at?

Ive been reading it should be within 0.5v of my memory voltage. My memory is at 1.66v.

Does this mean i should have it at 1.16v?

within .5v means a gap of .5v or less. So you can set it to 1.2v probably. That's as low as my board goes. You might have to set it to 1.25, 1.3, or something like 1.35v if it affects the stability. 1.35v is the safe max.

Bummer! .... So that mean more stress testing to test for stability.

Gut out some old 120mm fans to put between fan and filter for optimal performance.

If it makes 0.001% difference, I'll do it because its free.

So how do you tell if the QPI voltage is too low? Would my system just as as if say my vcore was to low? Like BSOD/crash etc? While stress testing?

Yes you will get stability issues just like anything else.

Just a quick update on the dust filters.

They are doing a great job & i cant believe i haven't done this before, I mean don't get me wrong, The case ain't 100% dust free but damn when i look into the side of the case now theirs still pretty much zero dust in there compared to before.

If id have cleaned my case and not fitted the dust filters there would have been a noticeable amount of dust in there by now. At the moment i still cant see any.

Now i just have to vacuum the front and rear outside of the case where the filters are once a week. Much less of a pain in the ass.

*pats myself on the back*
