Wow. Either you have a golden chip or my chip is utter crap.

This is about as far as I can push mine right now. Once I get into 4.6Ghz, tempatures start getting too high. I wonder if I should try and re-apply the thermal compound to my cooler. Then again, the voltage I needed to add to get 4.5 stable seems high

May I still talk about 2500k here? If not, please just ignore my post.

I just bought a z77 + 2500k (did no like the new 3570k) and gskill 2133 RAM.

So hands on, started to have some fun and I would like to have your guys opinions.

My Bios settings are:

@4.8 = Voltage offset = +0.040v, Level 2, RAM at 1600, Speed step ON (C1). CPUz 1.400-1.408v under load.
@4.9 = Voltage offset = +0.045v, Level 2, RAM at 1600, Speed step ON (C1), PLL Overvoltage ON. CPUz 1.400-1.416v under load.
@5.0 = Same settings above, got it boot once and after that keep on getting 0x124 screen, did not play the settings yet.

Max temps I have got doing some basic tests was 61C or 71C (cant recall now :/)

How safe is my settings for 4.8/4.9 ?? I want to use it 24/7.
Will my chip die alot faster?
Is PLL Overvoltage ON a bad thing?

Thanks alot, any comment will be very welcome!!!

Yes you may.

This guide is based upon Sandy Bridge and should be compatible with Ivy Bridge too.

I'm curious why you do not have your memory at 2133. I've got similar memory and run it at full speed. I've noticed others running at 1600 as well.

I have a question about the Ivy bridge chip , I followed the guide in the beginning of the thread.
I'm at a + 0.125 offset, level 2
Vcore in under full load is 1.272
is that to much offset and voltage for a 4.6 OC ?
I think that this chip is harder to OC

The only reason is because I had less than 24h to try those settings above and once this is my frist experience with z77 + 2500k I am still learning and kindda afraid to push my PC.

I just want to find a good speed and start to tune it, lets say 4.9ghz and then, make my RAM faster and so.

Thats why I am asking if those settings above are ok.

Good to know you've got this same RAM and is running at 2133 smile.gif

Sounds good. Yeah, focus on one thing at a time. I actually used a different set of RAM to originally set up my board, some Corsair 2 X @ Dominator or something like that, that runs at 1600. But it looks like we might have the same GSkill RAM, and it runs fine at 2133 and I'm using one of those presets, whatever they're called, that you set in the bios, and the memory is very stable.

I tried the "preset" for 4.8ghz, but the way it is, I did not get even into Windows :/

So tried my own settings what is a pain cause I still learning about it.

I just would like to know if those settings are safe for a 24/7 and how high my voltage (as show on CPUz) can go to an 24/7 usage.

I would like to run it 24/7 @ 5.0ghz and RAM 2133 smile.gif

Thanks for this chat tootercomputer!

I could get 5ghz to run at about 1.423V, but it would have a hard time booting up, so I boosted my vcore up to 1.456V and it works well with occasional boot loops. You may need more or less depending on your chip.

PLL overvolting does help a bit in stabilizing a 5ghz overclock, though since I have not played with it yet, I have no recommendations for it.

As for your RAM reaching 2133mhz, just run it at the rated speed/timing/voltage and you should be good to go, you may need to increase your VTT voltage just a slight bit as it is the voltage that goes directly to your CPU's IMC (Integrated Memory Controller).
