Ah ok, yea I use that as well as my starting point to get me going. Thought you actually meant the Auto Tune feature that the AI Suite software has for the other Asus motherboards.

I had an Asus P8z68v-le before and the Auto Tune feature was in AI Sutie as well, but yeah they dont have it for the Sabertooth Z77

Realtemp or Coretemp.

Get a copy of AI Suite for the P8z68v-le, don't see why it wouldn't work.

Ok, downloaded real temp and 3D Mark to do some benchmarking the right way....
....feeling like a noob right now....doh!

The way you stability test isn't so noobish. In a past post I mentioned that IBT or Prime isn't going to produce realistic temps. No one loads thier CPU like those Stability tests do. When I Overclock I test my basic stability with IBT, a 5 pass run at standard, just to see if my voltages are good. Once it passes that I'll do the real world BF3 gaming test. If it passes 2hours of heavy gaming, then it's passed my stability test. 100% core usage on all cores for 14hours straight doesn't seem realistic. The fluctuations in core usage with voltage drops seem more realistic. If you can hold your clock trhough those fluctuations then I think you're golden.

On a custom water loop at 4.6, 1.38v, I'll usually get 68-78c while gaming. when I run IBT my max temp will peak out at 90c then lvl off to the same as my gaming temps.
when you test your overclock I suggest you have CPU-Z or EVGA ELEET, CoreTemp or HWMonitor, , and TMonitor ( to watch core usage) open so that you can monitor temps and voltages. test stability with IBT ( IntelBurnTest) or OCCT... if it passes IBTs 5passes or OCCT 5min, then try a gaming run. Sometimes it'll pass IBT or OCCT but while you are gaming you'll get an unexplained crash out of game..not a BSOD. that usually means the OC isn't stable for gaming and you've encontered a WHEA..usually a memory issue.

(moving jumper and then moving it back) It will work for a little bit but then after turning off and back on the VGA_LED light comes back.
Has anyone heard of an issue like this or have any recommendations?
Thank You

Could you post your system please. I had that issue I resolved it by reseating the card. I have 2 cards though. Have you tried a diffrent PCI slot to see if the same thing happens?

Hi fellow overclockers,

I'm very interested in this board for my upcoming build.

Can anyone tell me the maximum ram speed it can handle, I want 2400mhz ram and then some.

And also is 4.8 achievable with a 3570k.

Someone on this thread: http://www.overclock.net/t/1247869/official-the-ivy-bridge-stable-suicide-club-guides-voltages-temps-bios-templates-inc-spreadsheet/1360#post_17667795 did mange 4.8 on a 3570k on their suicide run..so yes its attainable..just not advisable
By the way, it's a good thread to get a base reference on overclocks....just remember everyone, not all CPUs are created equally. Not everyone is going to get that magic 1.24v and 4.6 overclock

Thanks I would be happy with 4.6, I have water cooling so hopefully temperatures wont be an issue.

Just discovered that there is no performance boost from 1600mhz ram to 2400mhz ram, I read it is like 1% increase.
