It's a 600MHz overclock. I'm sure it'll past the tests at a higher vcore voltage but I'm trying to keep that low to prevent higher temps.

No, stock turbo multi on the 3570K is 38 or 39 depending on the motherboard. You have x40, correct? That's a 100/200MHz overclock.

If your Hyper 212 is having problems with heat above 1.13v @ 4000Mhz then you should reseat, or RMA the chip.

Hey guys, just finished my build today. I'm trying to update my BIOS with no luck. It came with F4, trying to get F7, but when I try to update using Q-Flash, it says the file size is incorrect.

Any ideas?

Ambient is around 23-24C. I've noticed the CPU fan runs around 1300-1600rpm but it's shown a max of 2900+ in Hardware Monitor.
Oh no, I guess 1.135v isn't good enough for 4GHz afterall. Previously I had run prime95 for 7 hours at 1.130v with no errors but overnight one of my cores failed after 37 minutes at 1.135v (raised to 1.135 cause it failed intel burntest), the other 3 are going strong after 9 hours though. I guess my previous prime test was small fft and this one is large. What I don't understand is that in CPU-Z it never shows the vcore going over 1.068 yet if I set the vcore to 1.125-1.130 tests will fail or I'll BSOD.

After you moved the switch to the backup bios and started the computer, do a restart and enter bios by hitting the del key. while in the bios set up, move bios switch back to primary and then do a save and exit.

Very informative thread, and great review at start, Sin. I'm planning a new build soon, still dithering about components although beginning to lean towards Ivy Bridge chip. I had firmly decided to get the Asus Z77 after comparing features with GigabytD3H some time back, but now I'm thinking again and wondering what made you all choose Gigabyte over Asus?

Try just passing thru the digital signal to the receiver with VLC or Powerdvd and you will get DTS, Dolby Digital or whatever the source is encoded in.

Simply set the default sound output to digital, open whatever movie you in Powerdvd and you are all done. DTS connect is not needed at all. I have the UD5H and I promise that's all that needs to be done. And, honestly, the same holds true for any board with a digital sound output. Just use the right playback software (Powerdvd) for your media and it's a easy win.

Btw, I thought I would hate the creative suite of apps. I'm a bit of a purist and I thought it would muck up the sound and be cumbersome to use. But I love it! I don't rock the setting too hard, but I like what the THX TruStudio does. Just a bit of friendly help.

The stock speed of the CPU is 3.4GHz, that's what I was going by. The default settings in the bios made it go up to 3.8 but that's already an overclock if the stock is 3.4, that's how I saw it. I don't know if they're problems, I just saw heat going up to like 75C and wasn't comfortable with it. I'll consider reseating. When I'm playing a fairly demanding game the temps don't really go over 60C so I feel like it's not that bad. My goal was 4GHz and if I can get that at around 60C under normal use then I figure I'm not doing that bad.

That'll save the current bios's settings to the other bios? That's a cool trick.

Dammit I meant to add this to my last post, sorry for double posting again.

Just try to redownload it and extract one more time. It should be about 8mb in size.

Make sure it is the correct BIOS for your board. Download it, extract it and put on your flash drive. Then use Qflash.

I have tried VLC and Foobar but only stereo comes out playing a 5.1 /44.1kHz DTS encoded music via toslink. Have you tried playback with a 5.1 DTS wav file? That is my main interest.
