Hey,
first of all: thanks a lot. This guide was really helpful and pretty easy to understand for a newbie like me.thumb.gif
I just got my new rig:
i7 3770K
Thermalright Macho 120
Asrock Z77 Extreme 4
16GB Ram
So yesterday I tried my first OCs according to the guide with CPU Voltage +0.005V and Turbo +0.004V.
I got up to 4.5GHz without any further increase of voltage. 5 min Prime test ran well, need to run a longer test though.
Is it normal to reach 4.5GHz without any additional voltage apart from the two numbers mentioned earlier?
My Temps started hitting 70°C on two of my Cores at the end of the 5 min Prime test.
I just want to get a reasonable 24/7 OC.

It is possible, although your chip may be considered "very good". As far as the temps, if your running the Prime Test stated in the post I noticed the temps hit their highest during the even passes of the second test. 4.5 GHz at lowest offset and turbo is pretty good if stable with no errors in P95 and no WHEA errors (located in Event Log). I'm currently at 4.6 with +0.005 offset and +0.063 Turbo. Just depends on your chip, as you can see I was not the luckiest sad-smiley-002.gif

Snap, Prime crashed after running about 40 minutes. I noticed the jumps in temperature between the odd (51-60°C avg depending on core) and the even (61-72°C avg depending on core) tests of Prime. Seems i didn't get any WHEA errors.
According to CPU-Z my Core Voltage jumped between 1.168V and 1.176V. Core Temp shows a VID of 1.21V. Is there a difference between Core Voltage and VID?

I'll up the Turbo Voltage one spot and try to run the 1 hour test then.

Hey ive the same board, but the 3570K instead. Ive the same settings:
+0.004V, +0.005V, Level3, PLL: 1.717 =>4.5GHZ

But my voltage is muuuuch higher. Idling its around 1.1 and under load it goes up to 1.32.
Do i have such a bad chip, or are my settings wrong?



Over 4.5GHZ its nearly impossible to get it stable.

So I just ran the 1h Prime test with 4.5GHz, Offset +0.005V, Turbo Voltage +0.008V, LLC Level 3 and every other setting according to the guide.

I had no errors, Temps where a bit better than last time since my ambient temps where lower.
Am I safe to run these settings 24/7? I am not interested to get the maximum possible OC for benchies but to use my rig mainly for gaming (and streaming games) and working with Photoshop, After Effects and Cinema 4D.

You want to run P95 for an absolute minimum of 6hours but most recommend 8-12 hours

You need to go into the negative offsets to bring your voltage down.

Sup guys!

Adding in a new section under "Updating..." called "Drivers".

It should display a lot of useful information, such as:

What drivers do I need to install?

What drivers are optional?

What do these apps do and are they beneficial?
