could you get rid of the spoiler tags some people have a hard time loading them and cant use the guide.

@mk16

Regarding the spoiler tags, wait for the whole page to finish loading to avoid those problems.

@all

Is using an Auto Additional Turbo Voltage the same as using Zero Additional Turbo Voltage?

I read the definition of Additional Turbo Voltage and it says it is the "allowable" voltage during Turbo Mode. So it's some kind of a limit voltage that is added to the vcore?

im not the one with the problem but, some people have really bad Internet and i feel the tags should be removed so others can see the guide. Also i dont like having to copypaste it all over skype so someone can oc their cpu.

But most people are annoyed by scrolling down a long guide when it is purposely quoted without having it in a spoiler tag. It's the main use of a spoiler tag.

Some CPU can't run a certain speed?? because my 2500k doesn't want run higher than 4.5Ghz mad.gif

I signed up for an account just to say thanks to the OP for this guide. Reading through it was painless and it was not crammed full of useless information to sift through.

Here is my system:

ASRock Z77 extreme4
Intel i-5 3570k w/stock heatsink/fan
8G Corsair Vengeance 2x4 Ghz @1600
Sapphire 6670 1GB DDR5 (fanless)
WD 1TB Blue
KingWin semi-modular 600w
diablotec mid tower
120mm cooler master case fan, side mounted over the discrete

Test Method and numbers:
4 hours Prime95, CPU-Z and Hardware monitor

Processor = 4.2 Ghz
MINIMUM VCore = 0.832 V
MINIMUM Temp = 23 C
MAXIMUM VCore = 1.120 V
MAXIMUM Temp = 84 C

This system was $550 out the door at Microcenter. This is my first build and also my first overclock. I see a aftermarket cooler in my near future, as I am certain that these temp's wont hold for summer, and I would also like to push a bit further. I am wide open for sub $50.00 suggestions that wont be a problem with high profile RAM. This system was built to drive a 80" HD projector @ 720p. Gaming is the most demanding thing this system sees. After 2 hours of non stop Skyrim @720p on high settings,Hardware Monitor recorded a CPU high temp of 54 C and a GPU high temp of 51 C, kind of makes me wonder what the heck goes on inside the prime testing that it pushes up to the mid 80's?!

Thanks again OP for the easy to follow guide!

Great. Like i said its trial and error so you want to see how much you can decrease the offset while still being able to run stable at both idle and full load. The goal is the lowest stable idle and full load vcore that can pass P95.

As you do this and boot into windows, either your idle will eventually be unstable causing browser or program crashes or P95 will fail quickly due to not enough full load vcore.

As of right now just leave turbo on auto because it's not needed currently. Now try a -0.030 offset and take note of your idle and full load vcore & temps. Since your only running quick tests right now, only run P95 for only 30 min, then stop it if it doesn’t fail, adjust offset again and repeat. You want it to fail so we can find the limits of the cpu and then we will adjust the offset from there.

So try this then post up here.

Going good, idle voltage .944v and 1.216v full. No prime errors

Quick question!

I will be swapping my 2600k for a 3770k and will be using the same Z68 Extreme 4 Gen 3 motherboard I currently have. When OC'ng the new chip am I still using all of the same settings as before? I'm guessing voltage will be the only thing that I would worry about correct?
