I use +0.005 for my 4.5 oc.
I think you could easily get away with something like - 0.100 to -0.050 running stock.

Which ram sticks do you have? Don't they support xmp profiles?

Also set speedstep and C1E to enabled and not auto to see if that makes a difference in your idle clocks.

Hmmm I was looking through Core Temp. Maybe that was the problem. However I just entered Asus Ai Suite 2 and went to the option MONITOR. And the CPU frequency stays at 3800 there too.

Hmmmm than if i make my CPU run in higher clocks, lets say 4,5 like you, than my temperatures will stay the same than right? Sice i will be using 0.005 and the rest will be at auto.

Nope smile.gif

Frequency plays its part temperature wise, is not all about the vcore.

Use Cpu-Z to monitor your frequency, not temp utilities, they just show your top speed.

Ok thank you guys.

 

I OCed my 3570k to 4.0 with BCLK at 100.00

 

In BF3 on a 45 player map my CPU hit 64 degrees.

 

My offset is -0.010 on the BIOS and here is my 3Dmark11 score

http://3dmark.com/3dm11/3861368

 

With a mildly OCed Gigabyte 670

 

Quite happy with the setup so far. Also my H80 is working on MEDIUM, when i get my quieter Noctua fans i will see if HIGH setting will be quiet therefor I can haver lower temperatures.

I have the same problem like lzepplin01, its driving me crazy. Turbo Ratio and some settings are missing. Internal GPU Settings are missing. Instead of 16gb ram I have only 8gb (but cpu-z is showing 16gb and asus spd information in bios too.) Furthermore my cpu (3570k) only goes to 3610mhz under prime95, really strange. Asus support is for nuts. the only idea they send me was that i should connect the 8pin cpu power, not the 4pin (of course i connected with a 8pin). i also wrote that i did a cmos reset, and the only thing they told me was that i should do a cmos reset. really funny. i also checked the ram slots.A1 and B1 works together as A2 and B2 does too. so if i use them seperatly with only 2x4gb it works, so the slots are fine. but over 1333 and 8gb is not possible. i have some corsair vengeance 4x4gb 1866. i thinks the only thing i can do is going for rma too. i have no other idea.

just signed in to this forum.
I purchased the sabertooth motherboard 2 weeks ago and built my first PC took me 3hours was very careful lol and nervous but did a good job ( i think) could have chosen a better case for cable management but like the final built.


motherboard: z77 sabertooth
cpu: intel i5 3570k
case: antec 902 v3
psu: OCZ ZX Series 1250W
cooler : antec 920 kulher
ram: G.SKILL F3-12800CL10Q-32GBZL Ripjawsz 32GB 4X8GB DDR3-1600
ssd: Crucial M4 Micron C400 SSD 256GB
hdd:Seagate Barracuda 2TB 7200RPM SATA3 64MB
display: asus ve278q


450


I also subscribe to this forum for the overclock experts in here you were very helpful

here are my results 4.5ghz

did intelburntest and monitored the temps to see what program was better the AI suite II from asus showed a different temps (54c for cpu ) then real temp ( 71 80 77 75 celcius for each core) and core temp ( 71 80 75 75 celcius for each core )so i am confused what to look for are my temps to high ???

338



im gona do prime95 test for 2 hours and see if it stable did another IBT 10 passes with succes

I have a bit of a noobish question for you guys. Finishing up my first build and was getting ready to hook up the drive and install windows. Then I remembered I had a sound card. an Asus Xonar DG. I go to install it in the lowest slot and it won't fit to my dismay. Bottom line is can this PCI card fit into the Sabertooth anywhere and I'm being dumb? I'm wary of trying to force it anywhere. Such a popular card I figure this would be the place to ask since my last hour of googling left me scratching my head. I got it for $20 off amazon one day after hearing so much about it, but didn't bother researching any further. So I won't be heartbroken if I cant use it. Thanks in advance and sorry if this is the wrong place to ask this.

That pci card is not compatible with pci-e

PCI slots and PCI Express slots are not compatible; therefore you should not try to interchange cards between these two slot types. bummer though .. nice sound card:mad:

Hello. My board is coming around next week and I'm debating if I want to get the Intel i7-3770 or 3770k. I don't have much interest in overclocking but it's partly because I don't know if my Corsair A50 can handle such a thing.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835181012

I have no interest nor money to buy a water cooler in the future and I do some mild video editing and gaming. So if I decide to want to overclock to 4.5ghz, will my A50 handle it? Hope to hear a reply soon. biggrin.gif
