Okay so here is the deal. I have followed the guide to the letter 3 times and every time i go to chance my multiplier it goes right back to the turbo boosted multiplier of 38 (I5-3750k) its like the UEFI doesn't recognize it as a K despite it showing K in the description. i searched the thread, couldn't find any thing on it. What am i doing wrong?

JPMboy, I am running my 2133 memory at auto voltage, which is 1.65. I have it set at XMP 1.3 Profile 1, no other tweaks. With the newer hardware over the past few years, I am content with stock memory settings pretty much, the XMP settings. In years past when I built AMD systems, I tended to tweak my memory a lot more.

Fizics, you might want to start over and test out whether this chip can OC at all. Set everything to default in the UEFI, then reboot, all your settings should be at default, then go into the OC Tweaker, I assume your UEFI/bios is similar to mine) , set CPU Ratio Setting to manual, and then up the multiplier to something like 40. Do nothing else, keep it simple. This is just a preliminary test of your cpu. Then reboot into the UEFI, and under the Main page, your cpu speed should be 100 X mult, or in this example, 4.00GHz. If that's what you get, then you know your chip is okay, and then the fun starts. But if the speed is the default speed, then something may be awry with that chip.

So I would start there, take it a step at a time.

BTW, I love Missoula. Nice town.

Not at all, I applied a rather generous amount, in fact, evenly spread across the entire surface of the chip.

You need to delid. My temps on my 3570k /w a Antec 620 push/pull were similar at a voltage close to yours. After I did the delid and applied Liquid Pro temps went down, way down.

Seems like a lot of volts. I got to 4.6ghz with 1.176v at load with pretty much zero effort.

Cookie?

Some chips just require more volts than others (like mine). We lost the silicon lottery wink.gif

After I get to 4.5ghz It keeps blue screening and I keep upping the turbo boost voltage but it doesn't effect the voltage at all no matter how high I upped the turbo boost voltage. It will only stay at 1.328, It won't go any higher than that at all. Am I suppose to adjust the offset as well?
leave turbo alone and raise offset

it seems like its the UEFI when i enter a higher than 38 multiplier it gives me the error invalid value and automatically reverts back to 38 before i reboot. it switches back as soon as i click outside the value box. also when i try to enter maximum voltages of 10000 it automatically reverts them to 500 again giving me the same error on the lower right corner of the screen. Any Ideas? would it be a Bad CPU possibly a bad motherboard?

Hey guys, quick question... If I'm following the guide, is there ever a time that I should mess with my RAM voltage?

I am currently up to 4.7 on my 3570k and on my way there I was getting BSODs until I bumped my vcore up to +90 after seeing several others with that at 4.7. My CPU temps don't go over 80c after 5 minutes in prime and the vcore stays around 1.25v, but when I attempt to play a game that is both cpu and graphic intensive the game crashes after only playing for about a minute. Any idea what's causing this?

Is this the UEFI that came with your mobo, or have you updated? BTW, what is your mobo?

If you can play the games when your settings are at default, then the fact that you are getting crashes while playing games with your system OCed indicates that your system is not stable. I cannot tell from your post how long you are running prime.
