Hello, I'm new here! =)
I got my gene-z a couple of days ago along with my i7 2700K.
I cool it off with a Corsair H100 running my cpu @ 29 degrees idle. I bought 16gb of Corsair Vengeance (Quad 1600mhz, CL9) memory with it.
My graphics card is an HD5970 (2-in-1 crossfire card) with this massive Arctic Cooler specifically made for it. Running my gpu also @ 29 degrees idle.
And here's what I'm dying to do... Overclock my cpu. I'm hoping to reach at least 4.4GHz - for which I should have proper cooling.
I've tried the "extreme OC profile" standard thing you can enable in the bios - which "works". However the onboard network card stops working when I use that profile. So there's not point in using it.
I think I should mention that I'm an OC-noob. I used to have an Asus P5E Deluxe with an Intel Q9550 2.83GHz cpu overclocked to 3.8GHz. This was very easy to do in the bios, simply raising the bus speed and touching nothing else.
The fancy bios of the gene-z is confusing me a little. I've tried to change the mutliplier and bus speed values - and not by alot obviously - and the computer refuses to boot, it turns itself off and back on again a few times and then tells me that I suck at overclocking =) I was hoping that it was just as easy and STABLE as it was on my P5E deluxe, which never let me down.
I have managed to do ONE thing though -- Adjust my memory to 1600mhz instead of 1333mhz which was default for some reason beyond me. 1600mhz is the speed of my ram, yet my motherboard downclocks it to 1333...??
Perhaps someone could shed some light on this for me, or maybe even guide me through on what exactly I need to adjust to overclock properly.
Thanks for your time.
EDIT: Forgot to mention that I'm using a Chieftec 750W powersupply. Too small?

Where did you order the 2700k from? And is it still available? I'm looking to upgrade to that from my current cpu. I've already bought the maximus iv gene z, now waiting on either 2700k becoming available or a good deal on the 2600k

Thanks.

Actually this motherboard is very easy to overclock.

Thanks smile.gif Yes it's easy when you know how, I'm a total newb...

So...

Rhialto's 3 step Guide to OverClocking = How did I OC? CPU Level Up = 4.6 | Internal PLL Overvoltage = Disable | Ai Overclock Tuner = X.M.P.

This is it? o.O
Gonna go try that immediately.

Best place to get i5-2500K, i7-2600K or i7-2700K is Microcenter. No one else can match their price on cpu's.

No need for remorse. Save your money. Can you name a single PCIe 3.0 item that is currently available?? Besides it will be buggy until everything settles out. By then there will be additional cpu's, motherboards, video cards, sound cards, etc. available making a new build necessary. Let the games begin. biggrin.gif
