You will not only learn much more about system tuning an how the system reacts to certain changes with a Manual OC, you will also usually end up with a Higher, more efficient OC .

Actually the presets on this board are pretty good. I have had slightly lower voltage on my preset than the what the OP guide has had. I run the 4.4hgz 24/7 and have had no issue or voltage change with the 4.6ghz preset. If you want to push it beyond that then you will need to go manual and tweak stuff on your own.

no offense, but if your auto OC had a lower Vcore than your manual...either the auto OC is sketchy or your manual set up was done incorrectly.

1.364 under Prime95 full load and just under 1.000 idle is not too shabby for the auto tune in the bios.

You should check to see if your particular board uses the D-Pak mosfets. You are likely running 1.45v and dont even know it. The Z77 Extreme series motherboards have a well documented issue with voltage reporting being around .100 or more lower than what is actually being delivered. The extreme 4 and extreme 6 are well documented in this thread, but you have the extreme3, which I havent heard about either way. The D-Pak mosfets are to blame, and I believe they used them across the whole of the extreme series, but best to check for yourself.

1.36 for 4.6 isnt all that hot, but that could be related to the chip and not the boards auto.

props to the author for putting together such an extensive guide. it really help.

for someone like me who is old school overclocker, the whole Ivy Bridge turbo overclocking really was hard to adjust to.

i did come across something that i think might benefit the community as a whole that's particular to our boards, Extreme4/6. i find that if you leave the turbo voltage off-set to auto, the voltage swing is tremendous. it can be as big as +/- .016v. by changing the setting from Auto to a set amount reduces the core voltage swing by half (+/- .008v). i thought i might share this to everybody. so that means you might need more voltage pumped into your cpu if you leave the turbo voltage at auto, which is not good.

another thing i experience, and not sure if it's limited to our mob or Ivy Bridge. my 3770K seems to have some kind of weird cold bug. it seems to require a lot more juice when boot up from cold, OR resume cold from sleep. for example, my chip can do 4.7ghz @1.36v, and passes prime. but if i boot it up from cold or resume from sleep from cold, and run a prime right away, it'll fail. it seems to go away after 10~15mins of warm up. strange. i haven't found a lot of info regard to this on the net for none LN2 setups, aside from ONE guy from Overclocker.co.uk.

if anyone has any info on this, i'd love to know.

That is an interesting observation, I have never heard of a non-sub zero cold bug. Considering that it boots, I am not sure it qualifies as a "cold bug" necessarily. Honestly, it sounds like some background startup task that is taking up resources, meaning that the overclock cant handle prime and background tasks together, which is should.

indeed.

i plan on doing more testing when i get home tonight. start with the base line. and clock it back down to stock and see if the stock setting has the same cold bug. if so, i might opt for exchange with newegg.
post #7538 of 9531
so i got on facetime and had the wife go into bios to change the settings back to factory default, while i am at work.

it's currently running prime.

but the interesting thing is, apparently at all default settings, this chip runs at 1.2v load, and throttles back down to 1.14v during idle. correct me if i am wrong, but i believe most 3770K run default at 1.1v? i am guessing this is a sign that my chip sucks?
post #7539 of 9531
you guys, i am happy, but sad to report that my chip is faulty.

at stock factory setting and speed, it failed prime within 3 hours. this probably explains the strange cold bug issue perhaps. but it definitely explains why i couldn't pin point why it failed at a lower frequency and sometimes not at a higher one.

it failed during small FFT. and btw Memtest didn't show any memory erros.

this is just sad, i've never had a faulty CPU before. so this is what it feels like.

it could be your windows install, it could be several things other than the processor. 1.2 does not sound horrible for stock settings..

try "sfc /scannow" in an elevated command prompt, check HDD for errors, run memtest overnight, running just one stick of RAM, no GPU, reset bios, and retest. Good luck, hopefully you can get it all sorted out quickly.
