I found a few problems at least on my end with the MIVE-Z.
It doesn't detect proper settings for the vengeance memory it defaults to 1066 9-9-9-24-1t optimized defaults which should hit 1333
XMP defaults to 9-9-9-24-1t 1333 which should be 9-10-9-27-2t 1866
when setting mem freq manually to 1866 it should default to 9-10-9-27-2t but it does not it stays at the 9-9-9-24-1t
I say it should default to those setting because that is the way the V-pro handles it on the 1104 bios. Simply put it just works with minimum effort. Not so on the MIVE-Z with the 3402 bios

I'm now able to run a 4.6 oc at 1866 9-10-9-27-2t and pass Prime 1792 & 1344 w/6200mb mem 1 hour each iteration using offset vcore mode bumpIing Vdimm to 1.6125v & VCCIO to 1.1 and manually setting 9-10-9-27-2t
So it would appear there is nothing special to do here except dot you i's and cross your t's

What do you mean by dot your i's and cross your t's?

What do you mean by dot your i's and cross your t's?

 

When hand writing a letter people will go back through what they've written and double check that they have dotted there "i"  and crossed there "t" through out the work because leaving undone would be sloppy and undisciplined.

In this case.

 

Over clocking 101:

  1. Always stability test optimized defaults before you OC
  2. Always set your overclock in bios manually and never leave anything on auto if you can avoid it.
  3. Never OC from within windows with software.

 

#2 is what I was referring to when I suggest you dot your i's and cross your t's meaning anything else would be sloppy and undisciplined.

 

I hope this makes sense to you

BTW I'm currently passing Prime Custom blend 1344 & 1792 w/6200mb mem at 4.8 1866 9-10-9-27-2t 0.070 + offset 1.1vccio 1.6125vdimm

It sure does, thanks smile.gif

Can you help me start overclocking my system? Is it correct to start at 45x first and look for my PLL and VCCIO voltages sweet spot first before anything else?

Hey guys, I need some help here. I am an experienced user/OCer/modder but this one has me at a loss. I am running an ASUS P8Z68-Deluxe/Gen3 and was using the first release 0301 BIOS. I never had too many issues, just the basic double booting blah blah. I recently upgraded to 3304 and all hell broke loose. I was already running IRST 10.8.0.1003 pre-flash. I went through the upgrade correctly with the multiple reboots, clearing CMOS etc. Upon rebooting, and setting defaults / SATA to RAID, the Intel RAID ROM would fire away but I would BS while loading Windows. Even changing back to AHCI I would blue screen. With my back side puckered with a potential toasted BIOS, I re-flashed. Funny thing is, it actually flashed again.....3 reboots....and showed upgrading again! So I cleared CMOS, set defaults, set RAID and same thing, BS. I set SATA back to AHCI and BOOM, back in Windows. Regardless, back in Windows. From here on out is where things started going really south. Here is what I experienced / experiencing:

Problem: Random lockups after 60 seconds to 3 minutes of being in Windows. As an example I could open task manager, but it would initiate a snowball effect and force a hard reboot. Sometimes there would not be a lockup for 24 hours. On booting up I would know the thing would lockup when my desktop icons were blank placeholders and not the actual icons. If I let the PC sit for a few hours idle, everything would be fine for about 30 minutes of use then lock up. I uninstalled IRST 10.8.0.1003 and I could NOT install it again. I had to install 11.2. ***.

Problem: Installation of any virtu client of any version would present a blank screen on reboot. Safe mode, which I could get to 1 out of 10 times, would be required to remove virtu.

Problem: Network dropping CONSTANTLY

Problem: Installation of MEI drivers 8.X.X.X results in a BS and again, safe mode is required once I finally get in it to remove MEI

Problem: Cannot install Intel Graphics of any version. Windows tells me this does not pertain to my system etc. like the embedded graphics is not present

Temp Solution: To keep the PC stable, and the only thing that worked, was to install IRST 11.2 and Z77-V Deluxe chipset drivers! I know it is odd but I seriously tried it on a whim and the slow downs / lock ups stopped. Running the Intel NIC drivers from Z77-V Deluxe seemed to fix my network drops as well?!?! MEI is still a no-go as well as embedded graphics. I honestly am NOT in the mood to re-install Windows and I personally do not think it will fix it given that I have a WHS and did a secure erase on my 120G boot SSD and WHS restore with the same issues post flash.

i2700K - OC is off
16GB G.Skill @ 2133 stock (ran memtest and all sticks ok)
120GB OCZ Max IOPS boot - have secure erased and WHS restore with same issues until Z77 drivers / IRST 11.2
240GB Mushkin Enhanced Chronos Deluxe - have secure erased and WHS restore with same issues until Z77 drivers / IRST 11.2
Tested Power Supply successfully
temps stupid low with dual radiator watercool setup and only CPU being cooled at the moment
GTX475 stock - no OC at all and runs Heaven and Kombuster perfectly on another machine

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Yeah, I posted this question before looking at the Sandy Stable thread. Thanks.

Thanks.

Just keep the RST 11.2 drivers, no point using older. There are newer if you want those but 11.2 is fine. The chipset drivers from when I tried the Z77 ones didn't change, they remain 9.2.0.1011. MEI is the same story.. version 8.0.0.1262 - fixed: they update to 8.1.0.1191. Not sure why it would fail but I don't really think you need then anyway..

Make sure iGPU is enabled in GPU, I know it's a dumb comment but unless it's borked it should install fine.
