Never auto overclock... It feeds way too much vcore by default into the chip.

Pick a multiplier (45 for example), set your vcore (1.28 for example), make sure your PLL voltage is at 1.8 and your BLCK is fixed at 100. Also set your RAM voltage (DDR setting) to 1.5 or whatever the default is for the kit.

Prime, watch temps and determine stability. Then you can start notching back the vcore until you hit the lowest vcore that is stable.

Keesgelder you are my hero today:) I have been banging my head on a few things like GPU and PSU but I think ill go with your advice on psu, and then wait to budget for a solid GPU. My sabertooth has arrived and I'm itching to get all the parts in now. Honestly thank you for your time:)

thanks for the info. Will the noctua NH L12 provide sufficient cooling ?

For 4.5 yes. Anything higher and your temps will escalate pretty quickly with a 3770k.

Glad to help out! I know how though these kinds of decisions can be wink.gif. I think you made the right decision, have fun with your build! And if there's anything else, feel free to ask!

It should, but don't expect it to be extremely chilly wink.gif. For example, in this review temps go up to 80 degrees with a 2600K @ 4.5GHz. The 3770K might even run quite a bit hotter than the 2600K, which you can see in for example this article (especially at higher clocks). Anyway, at 4.2 you should be perfectly fine.

I was a little worried about the width of the L12 in combination with the Sabertooth Z77 but according to the Noctua website they are fully compatible, just so you know wink.gif.

I see you'd like to replace the fans on the cooler. Personally I really dislike the brown as well. However, they are high quality fans and replacing them might decrease performance a bit if the ones you're buying are lower quality (high chance they will be lower quality). White fans are not the most common so I'm not really sure about real quality and appropriate ones. Did find these already for you though: 120mm and 92mm (the L12 has one 120mm and one 92mm fan). They might be decent, but I'm not sure how the compare to the Noctua ones. Anyway, if you do want to replace the fans, you can rest assure that it should be an easy procedure. smile.gif

Hi there,

First post and my issue is with my Sabertooth Z77 MB and just bought Gigabyte GTX 670 windforce graphics card. The GPU-Z software "Bus Interface" indicates that it's running at PCI-E x16 v1.1. even during stress testing on Heaven...95% gpu load...shouldn't it be PCI-E 3.0? Am i missing a setting in BIOS or in Nvidia Settings? Do i have a defective card or MB or is this reading correct? BTW the card works as expected but i noticed this difference during the ocing process. My experience with solving pc problems is limited so any help would be appreciated.

Resolved!

hi guys I'm getting a script error when when I startup my computer and it started when I installed the latest version of AiSuite II. The error I get is:

"AsusSetup, c:\Users\XXXXXX\AppData\Local\Temp\144458Log.iniis lost"

Anyone in this forum know what this means?

Had this problem as well,

Uninstalling the buggy AI Suit fixes the problem.

My issue was caused from Tune Up Utilities apparently.
