Hey did phase to extreme perf really help? LIke if you change to auto will it not be as stable?

Keep volts under 1.35v, and temps under 85C for max peak.

Can you just use F7 Then? If you don't have any other issues then use BIOS F7. I will ask if they made any changes, because my drive works fine.

Good to hear! I hope they fixed it up for you!

So, I decided to give the beta bios F8c a try . So far so good.
I am able to run my 3570k on auto voltage at 4.5Ghz. something that was not possible before.
As far as stability goes, it seems fine Played Diablo 3 for a couple hours last night and no problems.
Ran BF3 for a while as well. no issues.
Lol you are part of the majority of owners who doesn't have much to complain about, they just don't post about it. lol in all honesty, i think if you know how to build a system and are familiar with how to set it up you wont have issues. Some people screw things up on their own end, either because they don't know or are very new to building computers. Sometimes there are real issues but they get sorted out. I am glad you are fine.
If anyone else has an issue, that is what this thread is for, so users can post their problem, and then users like me and others can help, and if we can't help then i and a few others have the ability to report to GB.

Thanks in advance.
No there aren't. If you do have issues please post here or private message me.

Not sure how necessary a profile would be for these chips... seems like it's just a matter of bump voltage, try, bump voltage, try. There's only 1 voltage and one multiplier that needs to be changed. Far cry from my LGA775 days, messing with Skews and voltages on every damn part of the motherboard to get that last 100mhz.
Yea it really is very simple isn't it? and yes 1.35v is what i think most people agree on is max 24/7. Yea haha P55, X58 and now you have iyv. Of course there are people like us how like the challenge, and then others who are new or scared by the new platform. Profiles are nice idea tho, and I intend to take full advantage of them! Yea one issue is my CPU is freaking great haha.

Nice man! yea hyper 212+ not gonna do 4.8 lol.

Are they interelated? If I increase the limits on 1 value while decrease the limits in another, does the system go with the more conservative values?
If you use turbo then they can extend the amount of power being used, and not limit the OC. Would max both of them out, but don't make watt lower than current. I set 300 on each if I use turbo.

Yea man, I am sorry for what happened to you. If the retailer wont want to replace it or RMA, then you might want to contact GB, they might be able to help you.

Sin can you explain the GFX thing ..or ask GB about it
Yea some programs hit certain parts of the CPU that stress tests do not, or might take very a long time. That is why Intel sometimes recommends using odd programs for stability like ADIA64 with AVX. Usually it is for money for ADIA, but sometimes there is a reason.
What is the GFX issue?
