... and sell the 4x4GB on ebay.
Although different architecture, I could never OC 4 sticks in my 775 system, but 2 sticks worked fine. I'm hoping the same will work for this ASRock E3G3 board. Heres's a RAM clock/CAS timimg calculator:

Yeah I messed with the timings to no avail. Here's a screenshot:

Hey guys, I'm new around here and to overclocking aswell. I was just wondering, Is 1.150v core voltage enough for 4.2ghz overclock on the 3570K?

Greetings!

PS: This guide is veeery helpful!

Well my settings for my 4.2 OC is -.050 offset which gives me a max of 1.152 vcore and idle of .832 vcore. When I'm gaming like on battlefield 3 or Black ops 2 my vcore hangs around 1.104-1.136. I have vdroop on so llc is off and cpu pll on auto which is 1.832. Also cstates, eist, and package support are all on auto. Also prime95 is around 1.096-1.104.

If I was to do fixed vcore I could probably set to 1.120 with vdroop and be stable. Up to you what you want to do. Honestly I like the power saving features so I leave everything on auto.

Thanks man! I tried to use 1.150v on 4.2ghz oc and I could not play any game : ( ... Now I'm with 4.0 ghz, +0.004 additional turbo voltage and +0.005 offset, just like the first post. I think I'll set -0.50 on offset, because my voltage is almost at 1.250 under load : (

Oh yeah I forgot about the turbo voltage. I usually leave that on auto and the most I get is 1.152. This spike usually happens when opening a game or heavy application but it doesn't stay at this voltage. I would like to play with turbo voltage a bit more but I do not fully understand how it works to be honest.

But yeah my board had my vcore around 1.120-1.152 for 36 max turbo clock on all four cores. This was with everything auto. So basically I'm on stock settings. I've tried 4.4 but it would crash at welcome windows logo. I have no need for 4.4 right now so I'll stick with 4.2

Hi all, just starting out on the OC trail and found this guide via a search and have found it extremely useful to get a starting point from.

I've set my asrock extreme 4 z77 to all the settings in the guide and have set about upping the multiplier by +1 as described, and have now got up to 4.2ghz, still with the offset at 0.005v and Turbo Boost at +0.004v. However, my temps have been gradually going up, and HW monitor is saying the max during the last test was 82*C (179*F) - still well within the 90*C max I know, but I've built this system for my son who can be gaming for HOURS on end rolleyes.gif

It still hasn't crashed on the 'test' runs - though I'm using AIDA64 for the stress testing as I've read it's safer to use for Ivybridge!

Ideally, I'd like to keep my temps to the low 70's....shall I just decrease the multiplier untill I achieve that, and just take whatever OC that gives me do you think?? My cooler btw, is the Freezer Pro 7 v2 with arctic silver 5 paste.

Thanks for some advice to a noob thumb.gif

Keep lowering the offset voltage until it no longer becomes stable. Usually, it's voltage that makes these chips run hot, unless the paste or cooler werent installed properly.

Also, get a usb disk drive, format it for FAT, and while in your BIOS settings take pictures using F12. Post here when done.

Lastly, AIDA uses alot more CPU power than when gaming. When I used Prime95 it was over 20 degrees higher than after my 5/6 hour gaming session. I wont worry about it.

Hey guys, I'm a noob to Intel overclocking (coming from the bottleneck world provided by AMD CPUs). I've read the guide, but I still have some doubts.

Setting my bclk to 103 is harmful? What else would I be messing with in case I set it to 103?
I've set LLC to 0%, but my CPU voltage goes up to 1,25v when playing Planetside 2 (my temps never go over 58º though)

The things I changed in UEFI are all the settings regarding max current and amperage (according to the guide), the multiplier (which is set to 40x) and LLC is 0% (was set at 100% as default!).

Oh, and before you all say "why didn't you get a 3570k if you like to overclock?": I don't have access to bestbuy, tigerdirect, amazon, newegg and stuff... and Unlocked CPUs are ridiculously overpriced where I live.

Thanks for the reply NRY.....

I dropped the offset from +0.005v to -0.005v and the first cap is the result from the test. I've just ran another 5min test at -0.010v and the temps went UP a tad?? thinking.gif

I'm running another one at the moment, I'll post the HWM screencap when it's done.

Thanks again......

I am going to leave this off since I know more about Sandys than I do Ivy's. But you should be using RealTemp to get the most accurate temperature results, and using CPU-Z to get the voltage.
