Can you overclock an IVY BRIDGE on a Z68?

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
hey guys,
I recently bought my z68x-ud3p for sli and overclocking. Now that ivy bridge is coming, can i overclock an ivy bridge on a z68 or pretty much stick with sandy bridge for overclocking?
Thanks

No one can guarantee an answer on this, but I would bet that you should be able to.

The Z77 boards will however overclock them better.

Ok. Interesting. So you think ill get better performance out of an i7 2600k overclocked than a i7 3770k overclocked?

Atm no one really knows what to expect.. Ive seen several reports of temps going into the 100c after a 4.7 OC.. so for all we know they wont OC better than SB.. But those were test chips and not the final product..

However on DICE they overclock better than SB..

its possible you will get more out of a i7 2600k.. what i would do is wait and see what clocks are being reached on a z77 platform and what clocks with a I73770k are being reached on a sandy bridge platform smile.gif

No way of knowing yet. I suspect that the 3770K will give something on the order of 8-14% clock for clock increase in performance with a minimal increase in overclocking headroom. The highest reasonable overclock for most 2600K's is 4.8ghz (highest meaning no need for watercooling and voltage scales linearly with frequency). Ivy's voltage will more than likely scale linearly all the way to 5.0ghz making 5.2ish obtainable by watercooling.


I imagine the voltage profile might look something like this:
286

I bet you that the new ivy bridge is going to have some problems and the smaller contacts on the cpu wont hold the same voltage as the sandy are now.
I think we should do is,rolleyes.gif see problems its going to have frist frist. i bet the overclocking for them well less.

I agree I was going to comment but held my tongue...

With the die shrink I see temps going to increase fast and it probably wont go past 1.4 vcore

Id like to see the results of the first batch of chips before wasting money on the product.. I just dont think IB will be for overclockers or 24.7 use.. I mean we may get lucky and see couple amazing chips, but I think most will be lemons..

I really really highly doubt that. The ES samples people have been scaring people with at 100°C are just ES's. Try putting your chip to 1.58v and see what your watercooling loop can do. Speeds have very little to do with temps, whereas voltage has absolute control over temps. Some ESs can't OC very well(as is the case with every generation) and thus the owner is ramming voltage down their throats to get the speed up.

Remember these chips have a 77W TDP, which is lower than SB which means expect lower voltages and lower temps.

I dont claim to actually know what I am talking about but from me poking around the news threads on the Ivy Bridge.. It seems many people dont have high hopes for the potential OC'ing of the chips..

I would love to see these chips hit 5.2ghz at a safe voltage and temp (safe as in the same level of safety settin the SB chips to 4.8ghz would be)

I mean just because we will see lower temps and lower voltages at stock doesnt mean it will scale like the SB does.. And so far I havent seen anything to support it does scale well.. In fact from the 3 or so reports ive seen it doesnt scale well..
