Perfect! yeah i didnt notice a significant reduction with AS5.....with CLpro i was in shock! thumb.gif


how hard you want to push it?

Guys, stop tempting me to delid mine! I keep looking at my razor each time one of you guys post pictures..

ANYWAY, since I don't remember posting here before here was my OC at 4.5:

Oh my.. very nice overclock there.

Ok, so I set my offset to -0.010 but I chose to test it without increasing my turbo from where it was (+0.004).

Custom Blend - 1792, 90% ram, 5min for a duration of 15min (So it could run through the 8k tests)

Vcore & Temp Results:

Idle - 1.120 @ 28c
load - 1.304-1.312 @ 92c hottest core during 8k Test 2 (This is down from 94c previously, but may be due to colder ambient temps)

I got one WHEA for (bump vcore voltz) during the very tail end of the 8k test 3. But aside from that, no errors or crashes from p95.

Now I seriously can't wait for my fans and CLP to come in so I can delid for cooler temps (even if I can't get a higher oc, I'm okay with 45, but I will try for 47 if not 46).

I don't know, I just tried 4.9 for a half hour and it zoomed along topping out at 81, DM is telling me 1.382. Honestly, I have zero use for a high overclock. I am just pushing it because I needed a new hobby before my wife divorced me for buying another gun. The most we use this machine for is a 1080p media center, and some occasional gaming.

Ok that's a little better, that CPU can probably run in the 0.960v-1.000v range no problem. I would try taking it down to at least 1.000v at idle but its up to you.

I'll try for it, so weird going to negative offset, but now I see why turbo goes up to +0.6 LoL

By the way, how do you test stability at idle vcores O_O? Is it, just get it low, do your normal day stuff (game) and if you pop a WHEA, up it a bit?

Hello!

I have my new PC for less than a week now and I decided to overclock my CPU (i5 3570k), with an Asrock Z77 Extreme 4 and Noctua ND-H14.I followed and did mostly everything from this guide as best as I could and got to a 4.4 Ghz OC with offset of +0.005v and turbo voltage of +0.004v and core voltage (load) of 1.224-1.232-1.240 (CPU temps were 70-75C more or less, and passed the prime tests for 10 mins), if that matters.Are the results good or bad?When I tried for 4.5 it crashed (and cpu 01 dissipated from the prime test...and at 4.4 it came back), for now I'll let it like this until I get some of my question asked.Firstly, every time it becomes unstable and crashes I just have to increase the turbo voltage until they work and don't I also need to increase the offset voltage?And, can I continue pushing it like that until I'm comfortable with the temps and overclock or do I also need to be aware of the core voltage(in CPU-Z) and other things?Anything useful(tips) and that might be of help is much appreciated!

P.S. I'm just a beginner at overclocking, in fact this is the first time I ever overcloacked, so please help me out as gentle and detailed possible!Thanks! smile.gif

Your board sadly has a vcore reporting issue that is well known, Its sad because ASRock have been doing SO GREAT ( like with my OC formula ). but sadly its a hindrance.

I estimate your cpu voltage might be more up around the 1.38v mark.

As long as tour temperatures are in check you should be fine with turning up turbo voltage until stable. However I would add a slight amount of offset ( in my case +0.050 for 1.000v Idle and to alleviate some WHEA errors when doing normal stuff as a start. )
