EZ tune 6 says my CPU cores are at 23c and Real Temp GT show it at 30c. Which is the better program . Also is there a better temp Program out there for my Board ? Just want to have good readings before I Start O/C. Im a bit New at O/C..do not want to Fry my New Rig...tongue.gif
Also My PCH Shows 50c at IDLE and about 61c during GAME'n. Should I be worried ?
Thanks in advance

(IMHO) Your temps are alright, not bad; You shouldn't be worried. EZ Tune6 reads your cpu temp from the ITE IT8728F sensor chip... but that's not your core temps. Those will be on average quite a bit higher at idle or load.

Real Temp or Core Temp will give you more accurate readings... I use HWiNFO... and setup a Gadget on my Win7 desktop to monitor the general state of the system. Here's a pic of the gadget (cut from the desktop), and the 2nd pic showing the gadget expanded - more extensive info, in a scrollable window.

Could someone tell me what possible benefit (if any at all) having the onboard intel graphics enabled while using my dedicated video card would be?

Virtu MVP claims to do several things (http://www.lucidlogix.com/product-virtu-mvp.shtml):
  1. GPU Virtualisation - Primarily it allows you to switch between the intergrated GPU in your 3770k and discrete GPU on your GTX660Ti depending on which is best for the specific task.
  2. Virtual VSync - If you have a 60Hz monitor it keeps your GPU synced to 60fps to avoid tearing.
  3. Hyperperformance - In theory it improves performance by utilising the iGPU in conjunction with the dGPU.

In reality:
  1. GPU Virtualisation - It will only use your GTX660Ti for 3D games. Everything else will run on the iGPU in your 3770k. You will use more power as both the iGPU and dGPU will remain powered up. The GTX660Ti can run eveything fine, and if you're using MadVR and CUVID for video decoding then they run better on the GTX660Ti.
  2. Virtual VSync - Your GTX660Ti can be configured to use Nvidia's adaptive vsync, so virtual vsync doesn't really offer any benefit.
  3. Hyperperformance - The jury is still out as to whether this delivers any real world benefit. You may get a slightly higher benchmark score and 1-2 extra FPS. Some games don't work well with it and a lot of people have problems getting it stable (myself included).

My personal opinion is that you will experience no tangible benefits from installing Virtu MVP while experiencing more crashes and other problems. Don't bother installing it and just use your GTX660Ti for everything.

i use coretemp, realtemp is nice too, also cpuid hardware monitor, and many others, easytune is the only one with wrong temps

ET6 display CPU temp and not Core temp. rolleyes.gif
All info from ET6 is 100% correct.

Thank you sir.. firstly for being the first person to actually provide correct information in response, and secondly for giving useful information.

I actually have a HD 7770 video card (Although it came overclocked from XFX), and I think given your response, I'll just go ahead and leave the video core(s) in the CPU disabled then, seeing as my system (now that I worked the kinks out of it) is rock solid stable. Introducing potential instability to an otherwise stable system is never a good idea.

The increased power usage you mentioned is a big negative for me, I designed this new build to be very power efficient and I'm already pleased with it. Gaming with my i5 @ 3500mhz and my overclocked HD 7770 and 4 mechanical hard drives = 205-215 watts draw @ outlet, @ 120vAC, which is amazingly awesome to me, and the cpu never gets above 40c even with 100% load on all 4 cores for hours.

Compared to the i7-920 computer I replaced this with, this motherboard with Ivy Bridge uses 1/4th less power, and 1/3 less heat, yet does exactly equal in 3d performance in games, so... smile.gif

IMO you should use MVP, but don't use either of the VSync or Hyperformance features, instead just use GPU/iGPU switching, which will save power.

I've Tried the MVP software tonight and fiddled with it some, I don't like it. I see almost zero benefit in any game no matter what I do, and most of my favorite games have odd distortions, or flickering effects, and in general it doesn't seem to do anything, so I'll probably disable it tomorrow after sleep. The only thing MVP has done is cause windows7 to lock up when I opened GPU-Z...blinksmiley.gif

yea i mean use it for its Virtu GPU switching, that way your computer will use the integrated GPU for normal tasks, and then turn on your dGPU for gaming.

Wow, I see Z77X-UD5H BIOS version F14 released on Gigabyte own web site.

Don't think I saw this mentioned elsewhere in this thread, or did I blink and miss it?
Anyone tried this yet?

I think Gigabyte may have posted the wrong file. When f14 is extracted it has a flash for f4, not f14. And the file is dated all the way back to march.
