I did the same. So far so good clocked to 4.9 with the 6 for the last few weeks.

Hello fellow overclockers,

I've faced a problem while trying to OC my i7 3770k w/ extreme 4 board.

I just can't pump the vcore up above stock voltages?! I get 4,2ghz on stock voltage which is stable 247 but If im raising even a bit the vcore, it crashes most likely with bsod code 124, even on the stock settings with only vcore pumped up.

So im trying to find out is my Asrock a faulty board or what? Any help would be appreciated. arrowheadsmiley.png

Im guessing that my Power phase system isn't stable and its making my system crash, cuz it cant keep the voltages and cpu stable tongue.gif

I guess they won't quarantee a board which "can't oc" ? biggrin.gif

well that is strange though you might be surprised, asrock will probably give you an rma

are you following the guide in this thread for overclocking?

yes im following this guide pretty well + i've tried like almost every setting configuration to stabilize the system. the settings are just fine, something is just wrong with my components.. frown.gif

Just wondering how should i contact ASrock in a case like this biggrin.gif extreme 4 is meant to be "OC" board, so its a bit failure if it doesnt work like one... redface.gif

Well the Extreme6 is really the enthusiast OCing board as explained by sin0822 on XS (between the Extreme3/Extreme4/Extreme6): http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/showthread.php?284124-ASRock-Z77-Extreme4-amp-Z77-Extreme6-Review

It is due to the VRM difference between the boards:


Extreme4
Quote:
ASRock is using D-PAK MOSFETs under the heatsinks, D-PAKs were phased out years ago on enthusiast VRMs because of their lack of performance compared to newer low RDS(ON) packages such as PowerPAK and LF-PAK when it comes to thermals. They can cause a lot of heat as they aren't so well suited for really fast switching power supplies such as needed for newer processors. However you can find them on a few sub $80 motherboards and the Z77 Extreme4.





vs. the Extreme 6:
Quote:
An ISL6367 is the main PWM, it can be considered hybrid (Intersil says it is), but at heart it is an analog PWM, thus not considered digital. It is a 6+1 phase PWM, thus to get 12 phases ASRock uses ISL6611 doublers/dual drivers, thus we can call this a 12 phase VRM as each phase has its own driver.




Quote:
The components on this board (Extreme6) are of much higher quality than the Z77 Extreme4. In fact looking at the PWM and the MOSFETs and the doublers it seems that ASRock is using the same exact components as the X58A-UD5 and X58A-UD7 did for their VRM. However the inductors and the capacitors are different. All in all I would call this a pretty decent VRM, with 4921N as the high-side and 4935N as the low-side MOSFETs, two MOSFETs per phase which is the standard design.

Quote:
The Z77 boards basically have 2 things to do well for overclocking, first they have to have a good VRM to sustain nice CPU overclocks and then they have to have good memory topology routing. While ASRock didn't adopt T-Topology for these two boards, 2DIMM OC worked fine with XMP. The ASRock Z77 Extreme4 needs a better VRM to be considered for enthusiast overclocking, even BIOSTAR uses better components in that price range, ASRock needs to up the ante on quality on the Z77 Extreme4 if they want to compete for overclocker's hearts.


While there is nothing wrong with the Extreme4 (or Extreme3), the Extreme6 has the better VRM design, thus making it the true enthusiast OCing board out of the three. However plenty of people hit very nice clock speeds on the Extreme4 despite this difference. I had to make the call between the Extreme4 and the Extreme6 today and I went with the 6 due to this in depth look at the power circuitry of both boards. Also with the Extreme6 having a 10% off Promo it is only $11.80 more expensive than the Extreme4 (after MIR vs. no MIR on 6) at NewEgg right now.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157293
Extreme4: $124.99 (after MIR)

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157295
Extreme6: $136.79 (after Promo Code: MBZ7701170123)


The value of these boards is insane no matter which you may have purchased and all do very well when OCing. I just wanted to show why the Extreme6 is normally a decent amount more expensive and called the better of the two for OCing. Due to the new revision of the Extreme6 that includes dual port Thunderbolt connectivity (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157344) the "vanilla" 6 was discounted just recently. IMO, making it the board to go with for enthusiast OCing purposes. Although some review sites, like AnAndTech (http://www.anandtech.com/show/6089/asrock-z77-extreme6-review-legacy-bites-back), show the Extreme4 as the quicker board if you do not take into account OCing.


Ok, now back to tweaking/OCing advice thumb.gif

It depends on the overclock. On my comp for instance +0.005 puts me at roughly 1.280-1.288 (CPU-z full load) w/ a 45 multi. Now say if you were going to only overclock to 4.0ghz then a +0.005 offset (1.280-1.288v) is too much because you would be overvolting the CPU. So in this case you would want to decrease your vcore by going into the negative offsets which will eventually bring you into the 1.20v +/- range which is what you would need roughly for 4.0ghz.

But for instance w/ my cpu and a 4.5ghz overclock, a +0.005 offset is not enough vcore so instead i needed to increase it to a +0.015 which put my CPU-z full load vcore around 1.3.04-1.31v. So offset really just depends on the cpu and the overclock that your trying to achieve and you will use this to increase or decrease the vcore supplied to the cpu.

So what will be the optimal settings for a i7-3770K at 45 multi, 47multi and 48multi ?

I saw that someone got -0.015 offset, 1,248v under load for a 4,5Ghz. How is this different for a positive +0.015 offset?

I would like to achieve at least a stable 4.5Ghz on my processor (for gaming purpose only) or achieve 4,8 Ghz if it's possible. What would you recommand me to set? What will be the great setup and settings. Thank you.

NCSUZoSo in the upper right corner you have a RigBuilder click it and add your rig delete your sig and add the one you did to the sig rig so it loks like mine its easier for us to help that way

And a question about the p95. What settings should i put in the FFT min and max box?

Done, sorry about that.
