Mine became unstable after about 2 years as well - just had to give the system a good clean - H70 was clogged with dust and replaced my CMOS battery.

is there an Asrock edition for Haswell and Haswell-E? Most of the settings are similar, but Haswell-E threw in stuff like cache voltage, FIVR, etc., its different enough from Sandy/Ivy to warrant a separate guide.

Glad that worked out for you, I have had less than stellar support out of ASRock myself.

Actually I was being a little sarcastic, they didn't even send ANY document stating that my board's been replaced with a new one. Just a new board (I can tell by the sound of the screws tightening it's brand new) in old package.
I'm just wondering, since I had my board RMA'd I had to do the cooling again, and it's been beneficial - my temps dropped. Therefore, my question: whats your temp at 4,7-4,8 GHz with air cooling in p95 ? Mine was in low eighties before (definitely too much thermal paste) now it's 74 (huge gap). 2500k @ 4800mhz 1,336v with thermalright macho and gelid extreme. TBH I didn't even set up my case fans yet, still too lazy to screw a top intake and side intake back in the case....I was really surprised to see 74 degrees, I must've really fu**ed up the first time.

That's how you can tell it's a new board.?

I am really late to this party, but I have a i53570k and ASRock Z77 Extreme 4 motherboard. When I was on air I did a very conservative voltage bump to about 1.12 and managed to pull off a 4.2 GHz overclock and left it there as it gave me no problems and I didn't want to push my luck on the stock cooler knowing I would get liquid eventually. Well now that I have a Corsair H110 I have tried to get the overclock higher. But I can't get a stable voltage or clock over 1.13 and 4.3 GHz. (I can get it to boot 4.4 but it doesn't last stable)

I feel like the clock speed I am getting is amazing for the low voltage, but was wondering how unusual it is to hit that low of a Voltage peak. I went straight to 1.2 when getting water and it wouldn't even get into the BIOS.

So I guess my question is... would the problem be the CPU or is it possible the Motherboard cant deliver a clean voltage over 1.13?
post #8339 of 8339
Your motherboard should be definitely be able to deliver a higher vcore then 1.13v. Are you overclocking with in fixed or offset + turbo mode?

What Vcore were you using to boot at 4.4ghz?

Post your bios setting to this thread by formatting a Flash Drive in FAT32, rebooting into bios, and pressing F12.
