You probably have the updated B3 stepping model that was released because the original model had a bug that could cause hdd's to fail if they were plugged into certain sata plugs. My head hurts.





The first two models did have blue memory slots.

Hmmm... Some how with my luck... I doubt it.






My bio splash screen says Gen 3 though.

I would love to think I have PCI E 3.0... getting ready to upgrade to a 770 and was wondering about the difference in 2.0 and 3.0.

I think you didn't look at bios updates.

For a GTX 770 you would not see much going from PCI 2.0 to PCI 3.0.

I'm thinking you're right... I don't... I actually haven't updated my bios in all this time. 4 years... I don't mess with what isn't broken.

However, I was tweaking and doing some ssd work the other day and went ahead and made the jump to 3.10...

So that explains that. I guess I'm officially Gen 3 and PCI Express 3.0 very nice...

Thanks.

You will still need an Ivy Bridge CPU to get PCI 3.0 it's built into the CPU and Sandy can't do it.

And as quickly as I celebrated, my hopes are dashed against the rocks. Oh well, as you said... I wouldn't have noticed anyway. thanks for clearing it up for me.

So I've passed the Prime test with x45 multi, but I'm a bit worried about my vcore and temp values during the test.

Vcore idle was around 1,016v, and the max during the test was 1,368v.



I'd like to push to x47 but I'm unsure as to how to proceed. My current offset is +0,005v and turbo is +0,004v.

Should I do the following:
1. Push the offset towards negative values to reduce the vcore, as long as I'm stable while idling
2. Once I hit the optimal offset, start increasing boost and than multi, until I'm able to pass prime with decent vcore and temps.

Does that make any sense?

Negative offset may introduce instability at idle, which is very hard to diagnose because there is no idle stress test...but you may be able to use negative offset to lower vcore and temps to push more turbo and increase multiplier. Prime95 needs to be run much longer than 2 minutes to judge stability. Your max temps are probably 8-15C higher once you reach the 8kk fft at the 15 minutes mark.

You have pretty much maxed out voltage and temps for that chip, whatever multiplier is stable there, should be your final overclock.

With that said, I run 1.400 24/7 under water on my z77 rig, delidded, direct die, custom EK waterloop.

Hi can I ask how did you get a max vcore of 1.368 when you only have a turbo of +0.004? Coz I have mine on a 0.027 and the maz vcore logged was 1.328. What level is your load line calibration?

It's at level 3 for me at the moment.
