I have all four dimm slots full and didnt have to touch VTT at all

Post some bios screen shots (format a flash drive in FAT 32, reboot into bios, Hit F12)

Also can you fill out your system specs in your sig?

my 3770K behaves the same way... but only at or above 47x. Solved by adding Vdram, not VTT in my case (although I did spend a stupid amount of time with VTT only to get a metastable OC. So I run g skill (or hyperX) 2133 at 1.615V instead of 1.600 at 47 with no issues. I think a few o9f these 3770Ks have a weak IMC. For instance I could boot windows at 50x run IBT at standard and p95 with only 1G ram committed without a problem for over an hour. As soon as I boosted ram use to 50% or higher... 124 in minutes. raising vcore would 124 faster, lower would whea. Had to settle for 47x at 1.248 (turbo load under p95) with 1.615V into 2x8G 2133 ram. 48x wasn't worth the time/effort for me.

Hey guys. Got a quick question on my E4.

I noticed the heat sink for the VRM was loose when I tried to get a grip on it so I just wanted to take it off and reseat it. Do I just twist the screw to take it out? And would I need to replace anything underneath the heat sink once I take it off?

Hey guys,

once in a while my desktop freezes when you wake it up from sleep. It happens ever rarely but when it do it makes me mad.gif



Could that be signs of a unstable overclock?

Make sure PLL Overvoltage is disabled.

Make sure C-states except for C1E are disabled.

After that, try increasing vcore by a little bit.

you'll need to reapply the heat transfer pad if it is not ripped. Or get a new one of the exact same thickness

Hi,

First I want to say thank you for this OC manual. It helped me a lot in understanding how to OC SB CPUs :-) Recently I have upgraded from S775 to S1155 :-)

Now wore thing...

My new sepecs are:

Intel Core i5 2500K + Scythe Mugen
ASRock P67 Pro3 (B3)
2x4GB Corsair Vengeance CL9 1333MHz
Galaxy GF 8800GT 512MB
PSU Corsair HX520

My toys are something about 1 month old :-) For 3 weeks everything worked perfect on stock settings. After burning hardware I started to OC my CPU. I run 4.2GHz on all Auto settings without changing anything in BIOS. Then I go to 4.5GHz and started to use knowledge from OCN manual in this thread. This was 5-6h prime stable on 1.304-1.312V core voltege in stress. Max core temerature was about 80'C (only one) and rest was about 75'C. I realized that I have better 120mm fan which can pump more air into Mugen cooler. So I changed fan and temperatures fall to max 75'C. Then I menaged to rise vcore to 1.35-1.36V on stress. Run Prime/OCCT/LinX. One day during stress test my computer suddenly rebooted. It wasn't BSOD. It was like there were no power for a second and restart. After this my hardware started to reboot more often. Now there is problem even when I put everythig in BIOS on stock. But it is wired behaviour. After sudden restart it is almost sure that MoBo will not boot...PSU and its FAN is working...DVDRW is working...i can hear that HDDs startung but there is no boot screen, fans connected to MoBo are not spinning, Dr. Debug LCD is not showing anything. Then I must press power button several times and after 5-6th try computer is booting. I have try to clear CMOS, pull of battery from MoBo, tried to reconnect all cables, tested RAM i MemTest86+ (no errors), changing RAM slots, changed SATA cables and connectors. I don't know what is wrong. Is my MoBo broken? Now some strange for me things...

1. After several restarts and big problem with turning my computer on I left it down for a night. In the mornig I started my computer. It booted to Windows and I deleted SATA driver that Windows can install its own driver. After this computer ran prime test without errors and restarts for 6 hours (default settings). I thought that problem was solved but in the evening there were sudden restarts (it is not connected with load, it can restart in idle or in stress). It ended that I left computer off and go sleep.

2. Next day compuer didn't want to boot. After some pressing power button it started. I have rise PCH voltage (I was thinking that something is wrong with SATA controller) to 1.068V - still reboots. But then I have also disabled C3/C6 states. Only left C1E state. It helped. Now I can run for example OCCT/Prime stress test for 3-4h without errors and restarts. But if I try to play for example Need For Speed Run computer reboots after 5-10 minutes of play. I don't know what is going on. Stress test for 2-4h are passing but video games crash computer.

3. Today computer started normally. It worked in idle for 1-2 hours. Then I run game and it restarts. After this restart it booted normally but there was a problem with loading windows. It took much time and it not go to welcome screen but restarts. After 3-4 times of the same thing I shut off computer and leave it off.

Scenerio after restart is almost always the same. PSU is working, DVDRW/HDD to, FANs are not spinnig, MoBo shows nothing on debug counter. Then when I will left computer for several hours off it sometimes starts normally and sometimes it can't start. I must put on/off button plenty of times and after one lucky it will start.

On monday my friend will give me his 750W PSU and we will see if it helps (my PSU is 5.5 year old :-)). Old hardware like HDD, GPU, DVDRW, PSU worked perfect with DualCore@3.2GHz and 2GB of RAM and GB EP35C-DS3R board.

What do you think about this situation? Is it probably mobo/PSU issue or I have killed CPU? Or maybe it is issue with compatibility/drivers and hardware is OK? I don't have idea what is happening. Simplest way is to RMA board I think (if problems will be the same on stronger PSU).

Thanks a lot for help and please don't mind my sometimes bad/funny english becouse it is not my national language.

Sounds like either a PSU problem, or ram. Have you tested the ram with the most recent version of memtest? Sometimes a hard reboot like you describe will reset bios. Before replacing eh PSU, pull the mobo battery and let it sit for 5 min. During that 5 min unplug the psu and press the start button to discharge the capacitors. replace the battery, plug the psu in and press the start button. Post to BIOS do not go into windows yet. Make sure your basic bios settings are proper (boot order, ACHI or IDE or Raid, make sure the memory is set to it's base spd (may be 1066 with that ram - best way is to set it at auto...etc). When you finish all bios settings for "STOCK", exit saving changes and boot to windows. If it all looks good, get a copy of memtest (bootable USB or the CD image version - ISO) and test the ram for several passes at least.

If the is a op or condition that you know caused a spontaneous reboot before - do that and let us know if it crashes.
The type of "lights out" crash you describe is problematic since it does not leave a trace in Event Viewer or a dump file (right?) while you are in there make sure the PSU is snot clogged with dust - could be overheating

Not much to add there. Might be a borked BIOS or a faulty PSU, maybe even a combination of both.
You might also have a few corrupted Windows file due to the crash, although that will not explain the boot problems (try running SFC /scannow in an elevated command prompt to fix any Windows errors).
