Hey Guys Im new to the overclocking scene and I have been trying to self teach myself with overclocking and have had this board to 4.3 ( Im looking for a modest overclock ) but while running prime i usually get an error in the 4th core about 56 test down and that's with leaving the volts set to auto , I have heard it is easy to OC this board and the bios doesn't seem to give you a ton of options that i see in alot of the utube videos . Any Advice will be appreciated Thanks .

I have to say after installing it on the SSD and following the guide that someone linked previous, my machine really flies, I did not count exactly but boot up time from power on to desktop was approximately 7-8 seconds.

Yeah you should be able to switch it over to SATA3_0 with no problems.

But yeah.. I'm right there with ya, my machine boots up so fast it's unreal.

The only things you have to mess with are the CPU multiplyer and the CPU voltage. If you're getting errors you'll probably have to increase the voltage a little bit.

There are some good sandy bridge overclocking guides in this thread -- http://www.overclock.net/t/968053/official-the-sandy-stable-club-guides-voltages-temps-bios-templates-inc-spreadsheet

I am one of the unfortunate guys who lives where 3770K is still a dream ( and will probably be so for months). The 3770 non K became available here (Thailand) and I went for it cause I had the itch to upgrade from my 3 year old I7 860. Got a Gigabyte z77X-D3H, set it all up and everything is working......BUT..... The F7 bios will not allow me to modify the Bclk at all (won't let me in). The turbo setting is locked in the bios at the default 39 for the first two cores and won't let me in? Basically, I read that both would be available even to us lowly 3770 non K guys, but it is not. I have many years experience on building computers. I went in knowing I could not move the multiplier on this cpu, but everything I read said the Turbo could be raised 4 bins and the Bclk could be adjusted (if only slightly).

So...has Gigabyte chosen to lock out us non K owners out or is this an Intel thing? If I missed something in this bios which would allow me into the Turbo settings and Bclk please advise? I am feeling very sad about my choice if this thing is completely locked in every direction.

P.S. This board hangs at the post screen for about 20 seconds before it boots into Windows? Seems excessive to me.

Yeah so far the system has been rock solid stable at stock speeds, and I have reinstalled twice (first time messed up but install so fast no biggie), and rebooted maybe now 30 times with all the updates after drivers and what not, and so far it seems to be super stable, no boot locks or anything since I upgraded the bios to F6 and hit load optimized defaults on BIOS.

I really have not benchmarked anything or do much testing like with memory to make sure it ok, but coming from a 4 year E8400 this is like night and day.

Just curious what software is used to test to make sure you are getting the Sata 3 Speeds on the SSD?

Maybe this weekend once I put my games back on will try overclocking for the first time, have never messed with it before but will read up on it.

yes that is too much time man, it really shouldn't. Please reflash your BIOS and then immediately load optimized defaults. Also I will check, perhaps INtel has changed something, otherwise I will check this issue.

Is there a quick and easy way to adjust CPU fan speed without installing easytune? I thought I remembered reading somewhere there was an option in the bios to switch between silent and normal/performance but I am most likely mistaken.

yea also where it says CPU fan control mode, Voltage= 3 pin fan connectors, PWM=4pin fan.
