Whats the highest 24-7 overclock on this board so far using a 3770k on water. Temps aside im looking to see if this board is aimed at high end overclocking as the guys build will be water cooled with one of those massive 9x120mm rads. So like I said temps for the most part wont be an issue just need to see if this board can supply enough clean power. Gonna change out the internal TIM as well as put good stuff on the outside and lap it and the waterblock as well.

I saw a guy at 4.9 but can't rember if it was 24/7. I also see a lot of 4.6 stable that is 24/7. I would say in general this board performs well when oc on 3770k.

I'm @ 4.5 temps in mid 60c 's... Not stable yet though havent done a full 24hour prime run... working on it.

OC'd to 4.5 ran Prime for 12 hours, ran fine, but computer has frozen twice since the OC. I increased:

cpu offset voltage +.005

am I doing it right?

Bob, those are some pretty high temps bud. When my Water Loop busted I slapped the stock cooler on and the temps I got were unbeliveablly high..same as yours. Now, if those temps( 90&91) were just peak temps and then settled to say 70-79 I'd say stick with your cooler but it's not safe to run thsoe temps your getting for a prolonged time. The TJmax of the CPU is 105..say your ambiants got higher you'd be looking at a couple degrees closer to the MAX. being that close would just scare me. The Hyper Evo 212 is a good air cooler. You'll prob lose almost 7-8c off your current temps with that.

Changing the Thermal Paste won't do you much good. When I used my stock cooler I first tried it with CoolJags Shin etsu then tried AS5..the Artic Silver5 performed better by 2c..thats not much in the grand scheme of things.

Bob, I honestly belive that if you plan on overclcoking your CPU I'd go with a diffent cooler. The closed watercooling loops are a great solution or if funds are a factor the hyper Evo 212..supposedly the 212 is one of the best heatsinks for the price.

Oh and I don't blame you on your WC phobia..one of my lines burst the other day..my rig hasn't been running the same since..I'm pretty bummed. Wondering if I should RMA wink.gif

Okay right now my cpu offset is 0.010. So basically I need to continue to bump it higher as long as there is crashes? also I am using XMP profile so my BCKL is 100
