I've been working on overclocking my 3570K with this board but seem to have hit a wall. I can hit 4.6GHz stable with 1.335 VCore and LLC at Ultra-High, but when I try for 4.7 I get BSOD codes suggesting VCCIO is the issue, but I can't find the VCCIO setting in the UEFI. Is there anything that can be done about this? I had similar issues at lower clocks and raising VCore seemed to fix it, but I don't want to go over 1.35v (not sure what's considered 24/7 safe yet). Temps top out at 81C in Prime95, with a NH-D14 cooler.

I know, full capacity RMAs understand which frequecies are applied. Only small technical agencies may noy understand that. I read a few QVL and i see having 2800 Mhz support QVL, supported more ram type. 1866 Mhz support QVL supported less ram type and limited frequency such as 2400 Mhz. I think this is explanation type of Asus, but wrong one smile.gif

If it's not an issue that you can fix in the bios then you might have to reinstall AI II or ....frown.gif rma. Try bios before anything drastic.

I talked to Asus, said to RMA. Sucks.

Count me in~!

Not sure if any of you have experienced this, but after finishing building it, the CPU multi would not go past x35 no matter what. Couldn't find any info anywhere. Finally on Monday night, I decided to reflash the BIOS (it came with 0906). And that did it. So if anyone get a similar problem, where your CPU just won't OC, try reflashing the BIOS to the latest one. Chances are that'll fix it.

Speaking of the little mother board fans.

1. Is there a way to turn down the RPM's on those little suckers?

The loudest noise from my system is those little fans with tiny whirl noise going. I'm not sure I'd want to remove them or disable them based on the fact the heat would be trapped in the thermal armor and raise temps.

2. If I did turn them off do you think that temps would really rise much at all to make a difference?

3. Anyone else have them turned off or not installed at all?

I would also like to know.

I think you can change accessory fan speed in bios
and why don't you unplug them and check temps yourself

isn't there a profile in the ASUS FanXpert that slows it down..only thing is it slows down all the other ones to. Try FanXpert..or did you already?


So, gang, I ran into my first gripe about this board..I have 2 Asus GTX570 CU II, the triple slotters I know this board isn't an eATX board but I'm so bummed that ASUS wouldn't think about the fact that their fanboys would want to fit 2 of their bestly triple slotters into this board. It need a bit more real estate. Just a bit. I hit 90c on my top card playing BF3 at Ultra for 2 hours. I ended up using the last PCIe lane, it's a tight squeeze with my fans, usb and power connectors. Oh well..STILL LOVE THIS BOARD.450
I'll add more pics of my CM Storm Trooper beast soon

When I tried to use ASUS FanXpert - it was incompatible with the new ASUS Z77 mother board and would not allow me to down load it. I loved it with my X58 Sabertooth. It controlled chassis and CPU fans.

I'm new to UEFI BIOS and was wondering if there is a place in there? Have been very busy working and side jobs on Saturdays. On the side F5 smashing just about 24/7 hunting down a GTX 690 since last weekend. Finally scored earlier this afternoon from my iPhone. biggrin.gif

If anyone know's, I'd truly appreciate it. I'm sure it will be a great help with other Z77 Sabertooth owners as well. smile.gif

@ Blatsz32 - The Sabertooth PCIe slots have always had to sandwich two GPU's together. At least my last X58 and this Z77 boards did. It covers the PCIe slot for a dedicated sound card or TV Tuner option if you should.

Hence why a dual GPU might be a great idea for those interested in going SLI. Yes it's not exactly the same performance of two in SLI but the trade offs, PCIe space, temps, and lower power consumption (for those PSU limited). Anyone thinking of going GTX 690 trying a dual GPU for the first time, there's no better time than this one. It comes within 2%-6% of SLI performance. The best scaling on dual GPU ever. I'll take slightly less performance as a trade off for the benefits I'll gain.

There's always the enthusist that can have the option to actually get close to qaud performance with two dual GPU's with the limited space in our boards as well. smile.gif
