EDIT: Looking at your board it's a Z68, I'm not too sure if that suffers the same issue as the Z77? What LLC are you running?

Well, IMHO the voltage your running is a tad high for 4.6 Ghz. Have you tried running stability tests if it's stable? Once you've got it stable then start lowering the Vcore and see how low you can go. Obviously the lower the better.

If you can also OC it using LLC 4 and either sticking with +0.008 volts (or lower) Turbo Core and the lowest possible Offset voltage, that would yield the lowest temps and voltage (at least in my experience).

I do plan to upgrade to the Swiftech H220 when it comes out and de-lid (I just had to throw it out there cause I'm excited)! biggrin.gif

Back on topic, I actually ran the custom test in Prime95 as specified in this thread and the highest temp I got was 89*C with an ambient of 27*C (100% stable). Gaming, it actually only hit 65*C at full load (Crysis, Skyrim, Borderlands 2) when using it in CPU intensive games and playing for 4 hours or more. Really if all you're after is gaming the Hyper 212+ would be good enough.

I hope that helps in any way at all! thumb.gif
thanks! So I assume the temps is ok for this setup!

Hi Guys.. I have a question regarding my overclock. I OCed my 3770K @4.2Ghz the temps is about 85C it passed 12hour "Prime95 Blend test" but whenever I tried to using "Prime 95 Custom test with the settings memory to use (16x512=8192) and change FFT from 15 to 5" I got a stop working prime95 after around 50minutes. There was no BSOD just the prime95 stop working. Do you guys know whats going on? I really appreciate.. Thanks.

Yup it should be ok as long as you don't do a lot of CPU intensive stuff that load up 100% of the time like P95 and the like.

Hey guys
got a question for u

i have the asrock z77 extreme6 th and i have it OC to 4.8 normaly but the cpu is going on 100% speed ( not load) all the time, is this cuz of the ASrock extreme tuning utilty?
hope u guys can help..
the problem with the 100% all the time is not when i do bench/prime95 or game, thats fine but when it idle's it some times bluescreens...

If you can also OC it using LLC 4 and either sticking with +0.008 volts (or lower) Turbo Core and the lowest possible Offset voltage, that would yield the lowest temps and voltage (at least in my experience).

Ok tying that now. I got it booting at 4.6 1.241vcore. not stable crashing within 60 sec. of P95 but does look promising. and now the voltage is the same on all programs. Im a little confused as to why im bumping the offset voltage instead of the turbo like it says in the OP ?


OK i think its safe to say HWinfo64 is weird. got it 20 min stable and it looks like its going to take the same voltage and temps are the same. but Now HWinfo64 reeds max volts of 1.241 And cpuid and HW monitor read 1.288. did some playing with it and it looks like HWinfo is based of the turbo voltage. i dropped the offset voltage and raised the turbo the same. and got the same max 1.288 in cpuid and HWmontior. but now HW info is up to 1.271 ?? weird.

So 1.288vcore ok at 4.6 ?

I think my ASUS board also has an Additional Turbo Voltage setting. If we only need to increase the voltage of the CPU at load, why do we still need to increase the Offset value? Can we not leave it at 0 and just tinker with the Additional Turbo Voltage setting?
