New BIOS has fixed my USB device issue(Razer Naga not always being detected.) Rebooted several times so far and the software loads detecting it just fine.

Oh, and my front USB ports seem to not play nice with my 1TB Toshiba 3.0 external...Could it be because my cables are smushed behind the motherboard? What else could it be? I'm literally getting 600kb/sec writes on the front 3.0 ports, but the back ports are fine...USB flash devices work fine though, it's really weird.

The new logo is also pretty slick, and for those of us with Nvidia cards it's great since it hides the outer edge of the non-stretched screen.

I noticed when I plugged in the front usb that it wasn't a snug fit. make sure that thing is plugged in and your pins are alighned. Also, thats the Asmedia 3.0 correct? Have you updated the drivers? Or wait, is that the intel...eitherway check to make sure its snug.

If you look.. All of the Bends go in ths same direction. That is an indication of the CPU being mounted while it was in the upright position. Gravity dropped the CPU down some and when you initially tightened it, the CPU went back up into place and bent the the Contacts up. It could happen to any of us. Looks like you will have to get a new board.. one of those looks broken. That is terrible man.. I am so sorry."

That was said about my cpu socket by the CM Storm trooper forum leader..he is right, that is how I installed my cpu. So moral of the story, if you install your CPU upright be careful, gravity is a b***h.

On the brighter side, I've ordered a new sabertooth from Microcenter..if any issues arise i have a store close by that I can return it to and exchange it...biggrin.gif:rolleyes:wink.gif

I like the new BIOS splash screen, much better than the initial one. The new BIOS has certainly improved compatibility with my Rosewill Card reader with 3 USB ports on it. It used to hang boots unless I disabled Legacy and now that issue seems to be resolved.

Edit: Well, this is the upper limit of my CPU. 50 blue screens. So close!



The voltage is wayyyy too high (obviously) and the temps hit mid-90s at this speed. It's completely stable, though, and will run IBT at Very High with no problems. I'm going to work on bringing down the offset and see if this can be stable at 49.

Why when I change the offset voltage setting on this board for my processor does it not lower the load voltage when stress testing? I've changed it to offset from 0.1V to 0.05V and the load voltage according to CPU-Z is the same. Someone posted an article for me to read about it a dozen or so pages ago but maybe I am not understanding it properly.

If you want to lower the voltage using offset you have to change to a - offset not a + offset keep in mind this will also lower your idle volts


The caveat of Offset Mode is that the full load voltage the processor will request under load
is impossible to predict without loading the processor fully. The base level of voltage used
will increase in accordance with the CPU multiplier ratio. It is therefore best to start with a
low multiplier ratio and work upwards in 1X steps while checking for stability at each
increase. Enter the OS, load the CPU and check CPU-Z to check the voltage the CPU
requests from the buck controller. If the level of voltage requested is very high, then you can
reduce the full load voltage by applying a negative offset in UEFI. For example, if our full
load voltage at 45X CPU multiplier ratio happened to be 1.40V, we could reduce that to
1.35V by applying a 0.05V negative offset in UEFI.

Well it looks like I can't bring down the offset even a single notch - wont boot. I'm thinking of leaving the mult at 49 though since its 100% stable and temperatures haven't been above 75 (converting flac to mp3 and playing gta IV). They only hit 90s in IBT and I dont think I can really ever fully saturate all 4 cores like that. VCore idles less than 1v (27-35c) and under heavy gaming gets to 1.4 (65-75 max).
Any thoughts?

and your LLC is set at?

What exactly are you trying to acheive. your already at the upper end of that chip with a H80 to boot. id say your multiplier is pretty impressive already.. pushing past 4.6 on 3570k brings with it substantial volt increase and at 4.9 1.4v whats wrong with that

temps are 66 Celsius( 150 F ) highest for 24hours
vcore is set at 1.225v
bclk 100x44
cpu pll 1.7v
im gona post pictures on the bios later


ok here are my bios screen shuts and a picture i took after doing 12 hours of prime95 yesterday i woul like to mention that i use a antec kulher 920 for the cpu

vcore stays at 1.208v for almost all the test the room temp was 28 Celsius

Yeah that's what I mean. I guess I was wondering if I should bring the mult down a few notches. My goal is max safe clock speed, so I was wondering if the forum thought my current setup was safe.
LLC is very high.

Now that you have explored the upper end of it ..Its all about what your comfortable with while remaining 100% stable.. I'd say try knocking your multi to 47 and see what that full load volts are at. that is if you are not wanting 1.4v and the heat produced from that voltage. Its a nice overclock for that H80
