To show my support for the London Olympics, I added in my very own Olympic competition for overclocking! You can't miss it!

Some of you may already have medals.

The constraints for earning a medal will be difficult, but will most certainly deem the bearer worthy of such a medal!

GAME ON


This is not an official competition. No screenshots are needed, but welcomed. Medals will be self awarded on the honor system. I myself have not even earned a bronze yet.

Hey guys.

I'm looking at changing my 2600k over to a 3770k mainly for the upgraded QuickSync as I do mostly video encoding with this machine. I was planning on grabbing a Z77 Extreme4 to go with it but noticed that ASRock have the P bios update and new drivers for the Z68 series to allow an Ivy bridge chip to run in it. Has anyone tried this yet, and would my Z68 be sufficient for the 3770k?. I have not had any drama's with my current board, and would be happy to keep it if there would be no additional advantages to go up to a Z77.

All I know is from reading new egg. As far as I know you can flash the Bios and use ivy on it. Comments on newegg say they had to do it after buying the board and sending it back to the factory. I was going to get the Z68 till I found out about that. Then I went with the Z77. Z68 has pci 3.0 which is used for the new graphics cards as far as I know thats the only difference I think, again don't own the Z68. Your board should be find.

Hi!

Just bought the following set:
ASRock Z77 Pro4-M
Intel Core i5-3570K, 3400 MHz (34 x 100)
Patriot Memory 1866 CL9 Series 9-10-9-27 (2x4GB)

and tried to oc it using this guide. First I went with the "Green" scenario, got the system boot up with multiplier 44. But when I ran prime95, it gave me "FATAL ERROR: Rounding was 0.49something, expected less than 0.4". I went back to 43, 42, 41 - got the same message.
Than I tried at defaults - the same. What could this mean? Should I try to change the CPU? All other applications seem to work just fine.

Thanks.

I just upgraded my 2600k to a 3770k and my ASRrock p67 extreme4 gen3 is running the chip flawlessly. I am currently running it at 4.65 (101.1 x 46) at roughly 1.4v. My temps are pretty high, hitting 100c after about 30 minutes of p95, even with an h80.

Microcenter is selling the 3770k for 289.99 plus I had a $30 off coupon from their Facebook page. However, at 4.8 my 2600k is still faster then my 3770k at 4.65 frown.gif

Also, great guide. I used a YouTube video to overclock my SB, but this is much more in depth and was a great help!

Currently running my 3570K at 4.7ghz stable with 1.264v, but I still need to play with the RAM.

Using this guide as a guideline...

How does 4.6GHz at 1.288/1.280v sound? LLC is level 5 (most droop) and offset voltage is at -0.025v (from memory) - it failed at the same settings but -0.030v offset voltage (101 bsod) - so far so good with -0.025v.

RAM at bog standard 1600MHz/CAS9/2T.

Using IBT to test (maximum stress, 8GB RAM), temps not exceeding 72c on the cores and 76c on "package" - too high? What's the max for the CPU? How about voltage? Could I push this chip further and stay within voltage/temperature limits?

EDIT: Wasn't stable so dropped it to 4.5GHz

post #1099 of 9487
I've been testing/trying a 3.8GHz overclock and the temperatures concern me. I ran Prime for two hours and got about 76 degrees for the cores. I see a lot of people here reporting higher overclocks with lower temperatures, and I don't know what a safe temperature is and if what I have is too much. I have an evo 212 cooler, so its not stock - other than water cooling I don't know how I could bring the temps down. The turbo voltage is only increased one increment, to .008v

Any ideas?
post #1100 of 9487
I'm rather surprised that such a small overclock would yield such high temperatures. What TIM did you use? Did you seat the 212 correctly? I would expect the 212 (evo) to yield much better results...

I'm rather tempted to throw my 212 and see how well it fairs against my H80. I've had to lower my overclock from 4.65 to 4.6 as I was getting a LOT of strange malfunctions. SWTOR kept freezing and crashing and I even had the scroll button on my mouse stick, even after replugging it.

Hope this helps!

As for me, I didn't bother to change the turbo setting as I never used it with my 2600k. I'm at +.150 offset and running just under 1.4v for my clock. Temps are in the mid 60's while playing SWTOR.
