Cheers, that's helpful. I could get 4.5 alright but 4.6 was instaBSOD underload. Even with a full loop temps don't seem very good. Unless I know I've got a good chip, I'm not going to take the IHS off.

4.5 was my max as well... I haven't found anyone that could safely stabilize more than 4.5 without some serious mods/extreme-type cooling... Guess I was expecting too much from the ivy... Also temps seem to naturally be A LOT higher with these chips and from everyone I've talked to and read about, they say it's normal and nothing to worry about. Your thoughts on this?

I hit 4.6 on Auto voltage. 1.40 is the max, you can hit 4.6 at that voltage. I hit 80c on custom water loop 3570k. Max LLC

Actually I do belive 1.38 was the sweet spot for 4.6 with my chip. I was able to run IBT 5passes Standard. then I tried converting a downloaded movie to dvd and i got a lock-up. I reset it back to 4.5 and raised my BClk to 103.0 running stable with 1.30voltage

Seems I'm getting similar results with 4.5 @ 1.28v fixed 101.0 Bclk stable 24/7. Max temps 82C at 100%.

So then the consensus stands at 4.5 being the absolute stable max thus far on standard water cooling?

I'm using a Corsair H100. A 30% over clock seems to be very doable for most Ivy 3770's from what's being reported. I'd say that's a safe assessment of over clock ability average.

Awesome, I've got the h100 as well with the 3570 and i've experienced the same.

Perhaps I'll settle for 4.5 then. I'll still go for 4.6GHz if possible though. I'm often seeing temps hit 86C at high voltages.

Flicked a couple of switches in the UEFI and I'm at 4.6, 1.38v under load. wPrime 1024M completed in 186.143 secs. Max was 76C.

Next to see what happens when I fire up LinX, then Prime.

Edit: Linx seems good, temps hit 86C.

Edit: One core failed in Prime, temps hit 88C.

Edit: Upped the Offset to 0.75, CPUZ says 1.384v underload. Prime seems to be completing but temps hit 92C which is pretty hot but they'll never get near that in day to day things.
Mosfets appear to be cool too the touch even with everything on extreme. I just turned on one of the little fans that I have screwed on to the heatsink, I don't have the thermal armour on.

Edit: Going to leave it on Blend for a while, only reaches 78C doing that.

It's been going for about 30 minutes fine, temps hit 90C durin this period. On the upside, I think I'm pretty stable at 4.6GHz! Just using a 46 Multi. I'll see how it goes for now and save a profile in the UEFI.

Next up is playing with the CPU at -50C, Phase here I come.

Multi: 46x LLC: ultra high
Bios Vcore: offset +0.050 , idle 1.032v - load 1.288v
Linx Max temps: 82 - 92 - 91 - 88

611

Multi: 47x LLC: ultra high
Bios Vcore: manual 1.3v
Linx max temps: 85 - 97 - 94 - 91

586

Both runs are linx-avx stable and a couple or three hours of max payne 3.
I'm not in to benching though, so I see no benefit in running that high for games alone.
I don't care about temps either, games are not that cpu demanding so highest I get in any given frequency is 65 to 70 C. (room temp 30-35 C)

A 4.2 to 4.4 OC is more than enough for gaming even with sli/cf configurations.
