You want to limit the possibilities of anything else causing any type of issues.

I took out the video card and hooked up the monitor to the mobo. Same thing. One of the RAM when alone causes the system to power cycle, displaying the message "F0" every other time, which means "Recovery condition triggered by firmware (auto recovery). The other stick of ram alone causes the same problem with the blank screen, 4F and D0 messages on the mobo. I took out the cooler and cpu, and all the pins on the mobo look fine, as well as the connectors on the cpu. When I powered it on without the cooler, either stick of RAM caused power cycling, while both sticks of ram caused the same 4F D0 problem.

smile.gif I understand the need for more out a chip! I've always been leery about pushing over 1.4 let alone 1.5. I guess I start seeing scary temps north of 1.4! But I haven't tried turning off HT either to see if that helps the temps. May be my next challenge!

Kinda waiting to upgrade my cpu block before I push it harder. My RASA is ok, but I know I can get around 5C better with a newer block. Right now with HT on and running 4.9 with around 1.4V I see 86C max temps with P95. Actually, disabling HT might just be an afternoon project today! I can get work done around the house while I'm stressing it! lol Wife will be thrilled! biggrinsmiley.gif

Did you reset the clear cmos switch on io panel? That might be causing the power cycling. You may try using a different power supply if you have one. A failing PSU can give you any number of weird problems.

edit: I just did a google search for any of your codes in relation to an asrock mobo and found one where the particular board was shorting out on the case. May I suggest taking the board out of the case and setting it on a piece of cardboard with the cpu, one stick of ram, and the monitor hooked up and see if it posts.

Never mind. Sorry.

I guess you experiment until you find out. It can vary from chip to chip. 5.1 is a nice OC on the 2500K. Hmm, I see you have that on a z77 mobo. I wonder if that makes any difference as well.

How are you cooling at a vcore of 1/4+? That's pretty high.

I have a dumb question. LLC should be set to where the voltage matches the BIOS voltage during load according to the OP. For example, I have offset voltage set to +0.005V, LLC on Level 3, and core ratio at 44. Under load in prime test core voltage stays put around 1.184-1.192v. However I can't find the base voltage in the BIOS, only the offset number. Anybody able to inform me? Using an Asrock z77 Extreme4 P2.70
post #2287 of 9484
I am curious too as to how to set LLC properly.

Set your CPU voltage to fixed mode

You have to experiment. Not sure if yours has levels or offset/fixed values, but for levels :

Level 1 is the highest (as stated in OP), with level 5 giving the least amount of voltage.

You set a certain [fixed] voltage in the BIOS, say 1.3v ; with vDroop, this might be 1.295 or 1.290. The goal with LLC (Load-line calibration, self-explanatory) is to "match" the 1.3v set in BIOS. For most people this is level 2 or 3

When I OCing my 3570K to x44 its completely stable, I ran it about 12 hours in prime95 and everything was OK. But when I trying x45, prime95 crashes every time after 50 minutes on the same test, I increase offset and it crases again and again. I checked my RAM with memtest and it was no problem. What can it be? Should I keep increasing my vcore? May be it is problem with prime95?

ps sorry for my english
