Post with it in, hit F12 on each/every bios page and scroll where needed. You can then post the screen dumps directly on this thread using the little paperclip in the editor. There are many here with lots of experience with that chip and chipset... All willing to help. smile.gif

Heres what I got:







Pretty sure I got everything but if I missed something just let me know. I have been running these settings for a couple of days now and it seems pretty stable. I just dont understand why its requiring such high volts.

Are you on the gigabyte board in your sit or have you updated to an ASRock?
I am only asking because a couple of the ASRock board are bad offenders of overvolting, and at your current VCore you would be in the danger zone.

Good.

A misconception is that there is a certain voltage where your chip degrades and it's 1.5 or 1.4 or etc... but...
ANYTHING past the stock voltage @ stock clocks will degrade the chip eventually.

The question is when will it start?

The general consensus seems to be that if you stay below 1.5 the chip won't degrade until long after you have upgraded it.

I'm pretty sure I've seen someone who said they killed a chip a 1.6. So there is a fry limit.

Going a tiny bit above 1.5 like 1.52 won't fry the chip but it will be a voltage that will degrade the chip in noticeable time.

Keep going up to like 1.6 and then you risk a meltdown.

But the point is: Finding the lowest stable voltage at your desired clock is a very good thing. Don't just ramp the volts up and leave them there.

How long did you run P95?

What offset/turbo are you running? Whats your idle vcore?

Idle vcore in Cpu-z shows 1.016

The dynamic vcore is set at .185

ALso I ran prime for about 7 hours

I too just got a Rasa kit, although my is a little more entry level compared to yours. I did noticed significant differences in temps coming from a Xigmatek Dark Knight, however I also ran into the same issues you had before you delidded. My temps are still high for a water cooling loop. So while it did improve substantially, its still limited by the application of TIM between the IHS and die.

Its good to see your results, as its an indication of how a water-cooling loop should perform for Ivy, had it been designed properly in terms of IHS application. Perhaps Haswell will be cooler tongue.gif.

Yeah I was disappointed at first with my loop until I delidded and got the true effect of it. Have you not done it? Sure makes my overclock run cooler.

I have thought about it, and I don't want to take the risk. I would probably have a heart attack if I bricked my 3770k from trying to delid it. Also, im not exactly keen on voiding the warranty by removing the IHS. You must admit though, it is kind of sad that even water cooling isn't enough to compensate for the shortcomings of Ivy.

I am happy however, coming for an aging air cooler that was giving me temps in the mid 80's with a mild overclock (4.3ghz). I can now get to 4.6ghz with about the same temps, so the transition from air to water did increase my headroom, just not as drastically as previous generations of processors I suppose.

Haswell will hopefully have a soldered IHS, enough of this TIM crap tongue.gif.

Ok I went to 46x w/ +.107+ turbo boost.

I was running test for 15min with max vcore 1.312v ,no whea errors but tempts got up to 98 and i stopped the test.


Is it my settings or do i need a new cooler if i wanna go higher then 45x? 212 evo / artic silver 5 thermal.
