Thanks!

Did you OC your RAM as well? Could you show me your setting?
When you tweak offsetting voltage, what should I look at it as a reference and finding optimum setting?

Have not got that far yet.. getting 3770k and gtx 680 stable ..then on to RAM..biggrin.gif

Offsetting basically adjusts the voltage and clock speed based on load right?
When I adjust that based on your setting what should I be using/looking as a reference to optimize it?

Voltage offset works in two directions depending on if you use the plus sign or the minus.. and it affects both idle and loaded volts...Right now i am currently running 46 multiplier and a .045 plus offset.. so im adding a positive volt increase at idle and during the loading...the voltage will increase as loaded increases on the cores.. so at idle, 0.960v and scales to 1.264v when 100% load
Offset only affects voltage..

I dont suggest using a negative offset .. if you get it wrong it undervolts too much and you cant boot

I flash back to 1403 but the problem still occurs. I have to physically plug my DVI port into the next one on my 580 for my desktop to show up, I have to do it back and forth, switching from the original one that I boot up. Is it a driver issue or ?

Thanks, so only postive offset.
How would you determine how high or optimal number is though?

I have done two days of testing and have read about setting offset for days so its rather simple.. as you start increasing your multiplier so will the need to increase your offset.. by how much is determined by the ability to actually boot into windows then test at loaded without thermal throttling.. I have found the sweet spot for my setup at positive .045v and 46 multi.. If i go less of offset i am unstable and programs dont load and if i go higher it only adds to my loaded temps which is not what i want:thumb:

loaded this morning




Just checking temps and volts here..long term stable test with prime will be overnight..tonight ..will see in am what happens

I keep hearing about resetting the CMOS, where can I find this within the mobo? I am looking for it, I must be blind but am I looking for pins or a button on the mobo?

Just to the left of the green power led on the bottom of the board..take the jumper off and place on the other pins. do this with machine powered down and board power off

Sometimes I have to change ports back of my gpu. To bring up desktop screen. Is there a way to fix this? Should I go back to the old 08xx bios?
hey have you tried uninstalling then re installing your card drivers?
