at 4.5 i hit Low 60s max with only air cooling so thats good.

try that, try LLC, and enable cpu pll overvoltage those three things are important. As well as current limits, but from what I heard that switching frequency thing limits a lot of boards on the asus side, and is on of the manufacturer specific things that results in a lower OC. You should deff be able to get higher than 4.5ghz.

Sin0822 - it's quite obvious that you're very informed on motherboard power delivery solutions; I'm planning on buying an Ivy Bridge K-series CPU, and a new 7-series chipset motherboard to go with it. In your opinion, what's the best thing to look for as far as VRM's and chokes, etc, to give the cleanest power and highest stable overclock? For example, what type of VRM's (and how do we tell the good quality ones?), what type of chokes (again, how do we tell?) how many VRM/phases should we look for minimum? And finally, what company consistantly produces the best quality boards? I've seen you talk about Asus problems and bad ASRock VRM's, so who *DO* you recommend ?

Thanks in advance!

Gigabyte and Asus have my vote for best VRM's.

I've never had a Gigabyte board, but Asus boards have always given me great VRM's and usually have some nice bios options to tweak them. If you start to overload them they will throttle the CPU to lessen the load on the VRM's, and if you really overload them too much they will shut the board completely down to prevent VRM failure and component damage. I would NEVER get an MSI board though because that brand has been known for VRM failure even with the higher end boards. Don't get me wrong, there are good boards from MSI.. but most of them are just ick, and don't offer any VRM protection should you overload them to a point of no return.

I'd say if you want to try to go for a max 24/7 OC then I'd get no less than a 8+2 phase VRM setup. Anything after 12+2 phase is overkill IMO unless you're going for a LN2 high voltage bench/etc. Also, the more phases you have the smaller each one tends to get so there really isn't too much of a benefit of having like a 16+2 phase or something ridiculous.

Just so you know, VRM's are located to the LEFT of the CPU socket. Most of the time on good quality boards you will see a nice heatsink there and sometimes going above the CPU socket as well. thumb.gif

i have a lower end z68 mobo and will be going z77 next week if i can, in part for the onboard stuff and i hope more oc headroom from this chip and in part for my cpu upgrade to ivy later on.

i can get 5ghz from this 25k on 1.48v but while torture test stable i was still getting idle issues i hope are board related.
