Following Digg's and Hanoverfist's advice here on overclocking on this board. Thanks a lot for those screenshots of the BIOS by the way. I'm used to 'old fashioned' overclocking so all these settings are a little overwhelming. Quick question for you two, I have the voltage set to offset 0.1V like you but overclocked to 4.5GHz and my computer failed IntelBurn Test on run 16/20 ('Very High' mode and 'Xtreme Stress' mode on). Temperatures are acceptable so I think it might need a hair more voltage. Would you just bump the offset to 0.2V or something to give it that little extra it needs? Again, not asking for overclocking advice, just how to understand the settings on this board. worriedsmiley.gif

Bumping it from 0.1V to 0.2V seems a bit extreme. What is your CPU voltage and general cpu temps during the stress tests? @4.5ghz on my 3570k I would be around 1.270v - 1.300v under load.

I did not know a 0.1V increase would be considered extreme...heh. The average temperature was a steady high 70C's during the test. I don't remember the exact voltage under load but i know it was over 1.2V but less than 1.3V for sure.

What exactly does the voltage offset setting do? Would 0.12V or 0.15V be more normal?

Thanks for the kind word.. Im still waiting for water loop to arrive so i dont even have my board running yet but have a quick read here and maybe help you to understand offset and cpu voltage.thumb.gif

Also some decent reading here.http://www.mediafire.com/?l34d6j6c4wqfx69 uefi OC guide:thumb:

Is 20 runs of IBT really necessary? I usually do 5-10 and have never had any stability issues afterward if the system passes. I have run Prime 95 for a full day and then come back and have stuff crash on me though...

Right now I'm at 4.5GHz @ 1.21v. Anything higher will BSOD shortly after booting into Windows, and will need a bit more voltage to be stable(which isn't worth it to me.) Think I'm safe? Even with a Noctua NH-D14 my IBT temps cap out around 90c...which is rather high, but with Prime it's only 70 or so. My case has pretty bad airflow(Corsair 550D) but I got it more for quiet operation.

Now I'm a bit paranoid after reading some of the above posts...running IBT 20 times, jesus...I wonder how much degradation that'd put on my CPU if I did it overnight?

. You bring up a great point. Is IBT 20 times really needed. I like to think in terms of real world loads on my system day to day. And in all honesty IBT is way more than you'll see real world. Although it gives an incredible 100 % load it is more than I use to stress test .. Prime to me is enough. That's just my take. And as far as the amount of time I run prime ..if I'm really wanting to find a max stable OC 12 hours is enough. But we all do things differently and with different software stress tests. It's all about what your happy with ..thumb.gif
With that cooler i would not be afraid to up voltage to 1.3? I personally would be a little worried about 1.4 but your at 4.5 on what cpu?

Hey All,

I finally had the bells to build my first rig. I used the Z77 Sabertooth as the backbone of my build, and i was wondering if you guys could point me in the right direction with a few questions. Here's the build:

Corsair Obsidian 650D case
ASUS Sabertooth Z77 MoBo
Intel i5-3570k CPU
Corsair AX 750 PSU
EVGA GTX 670 FTW GPU
G. Skill Ripjaws Z series 8GB (2x4GB) DDR32400 Model F3-2400C10D-8GZH
Corsair Force 3 60GB SSD (For the OS)
WD 1TB Caviar Black WD1002FAEX SATA 6.0Gb
Corsair H100 Cooler
HP 24x DVD R/W
ASUS 24" VW246H Monitor

The build went great. Everything is up & running fine. Now the fun stuff. I want to know what programs/utilities/etc. to use to make sure I'm getting the most bang for my buck. I'm a rookie with this stuff, and if this is posted in the wrong forum, I do apologize. Also, if there is an "Overclocking for dummies" on the site, I haven't found it (hence the dummy). Thanks for the time and the assistance in advance.

Thanks for the reply,

Im running latest bios,

Starting to suspect it may be the USB 3 drive that is causing the issue as USB 2 drives work just fine.

Your build looks great,

Welcome and start with this guide to OC in the uefi bioshttp://www.mediafire.com/?l34d6j6c4wqfx69 then there all several stress utilities for cpu and gpu testing and benchmarking. start with understanding your bios functions first so you actually understand whats going on. once you grasp that then start stress testing and benchmarking if thats what you aim to do.thumb.gif

and a great thread for your video card http://www.overclock.net/t/1265110/the-gtx-670-overclocking-master-guide
