After I fixed the standoffs, my replacement Asrock Z77 Extreme4 acted vary flaky. One memory chip was completely bad, while the other would fail memtest86 after a while. Replaced the memory and problems over! Ran 22 hrs @4.5GHz with the dual fans on the Frio on low. Here is my submission for stable: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

I seem to have a good chip based on voltage needed, but not so good temps with Prime 27.7 I think I put the Arctic Silver 5 paste on correctly. I have good airflow through the HAF 912 case, with the Frio fans and the 200 mm top case fan all blowing the air along consistently. Probably the Intel tim is below average. I am currently testing a 4.6 GHz overclock, but with the CPU fans on high. I won't be running 24/7 at 4.6 GHz or higher, so: maximum cooling. Once the testing is over, the fans go back to low noise. The extra cooling from the high fan setting is much less than the extra heating from +100 MHz.
Hey, nice Bob. I bet you felt bad when you discovered the standoffs weren't installed! Anyway, that's the way we learn sometimes and I'm glad you got it all sorted out.
Welcome to OC!

2 runs of Hyper-pi 32M
or
30 runs IBT
I usually do some quick IBT (3) to see if it passes that,1st

Thanks for the help. I'll put a real picture for my rig when the transparent side door goes on.

So as I've mentioned before my 3570K is a pretty bad overclocker, was the same before I de-lidded and damaged the imc but anyway, I'm needing close to 1.3v for 4.5ghz :l 1.234v-1.25v for 4.3ghz, temps hit 73c running prime on smaller FFTS, mid 60's on larger, but to the point, do you think it's worth running 1.3-1.35v for 4.5/4.6ghz? or should I just stick with 4.3ghz... It just doesn't feel right sitting at 4.3ghz redface.gif

and to who asked about quick stability testing, I'm still using Xilisoft Video Converter for quick 10 minute tests tongue.gif I get whea errors usually within 8 minutes converting avi's to dvd if vcore is to low, takes much longer with Prime alone :l if it passes that, I then move onto Prime. That method hasn't failed me yet.

Oh and avoid batch L210B630 wink.gif

Hello Ivy Bridge Folks! This is my first post here at Overclock.net. I joined because I appreciated the information compiled here. I've been working over my own new 3570k system and wanted to at least share my results with you. I know 4.2GHz is no barn-burner. I like performance, of course, but not as a goal in itself. I am a software developer and cannot tolerate any failure in computation. I proof my systems with MemTest86+ upon building and require at least 24hrs of error-free Prime95 before I'll use them for serious work. I like to use power-saving features because they not only save electricity but reduce stress on the components and improve reliability. So this is not a max-overclock, but an offset-voltage submission with all power saving features enabled. Also, I did this test on just about the hottest day of the year so far where I live, and the ambient air was at 28-29C throughout the test. I prefer using bad conditions for proofing builds to using ideal conditions.

I can probably eek out a few hundred MHz more and will resubmit when I have something better, but for now this is my baseline everyday configuration.

Thanks for the useful information in this thread and the Official Ivy Bridge thread. It's great stuff!

Hi everyone,

I've been a lurker for a long time on these boards now. Figured I'd make my modest contribution with a 36hour custom blend overclock stable submission. After two weeks and a long struggle, made infinitely more difficult by trying to deal with WHEA errors, I have finally completed my 24-7 build. My chip is a bit of a dud, with very high VID voltages (>1.24), but I have the tuning plan so I don't mind running it on the hot side. If all I cared about was 24hrs prime stable I could probably have dropped the voltage some, but even with the vcore just 100 basis points lower I was getting a WHEA error a day or so, and I wanted ROCK stable.

I also wanted to include some pics of my case to explain why the temps are high- in part because I have completely blanketed my computer in sound proofing material, with holes I drilled in the vent cover. With the vent covers removed (there are three more covers like the one on the top, case is a corsair 550D) the computer runs cooler, but since I was truly trying to stress test, I ran the test with the covers on and drove up the temps.

Sorry for the lack of batch # but I don't have my retail box anymore, and I've re-seated my heat sync so many times I've almost completely stripped the screws. That said, I got mine at launch at microcenter, so odds are if you don't already have my batch, you luckily won't get it smile.gif

BTW, forgot to mention in the screenshot I am running this on AIR with a Noctua D14.

Finally, thanks to everyone on this board, without being able to lurk here my novice self wouldn't have been able to pull this off smile.gif A great learning experience indeed.

I covered my case with sound proofing material before, but I did it to the inside of the case instead of the outside. The outside would make covering it easier, since the doors and other moving parts don't have any slots you have to cut out. Seems like a good job.
Do you have a high end vid card in that? I was wondering if the higher temps make the cooler fans spin faster, thus creating more noise, and same goes with any other HSF you have such as PSU or CPU.

That was the problem I had and thus had to just put a hole through the wall and have the computer on the other side of the wall which seemed much better in terms of sound or heat. Only cords you need to come through the wall are HDMI and USB. If you were to do that home depot has hdmi outlets you can install into the wall which can be modded to USB. You could also have sound cable coming through if you want

I recently found that my 4.6ghz is causing whea errors now. and was raised from 1.170v to 1.190v
However my 4.7ghz was able to be lowered from 1.250v to 1.235v

previously 4.6 @ 1.170v was 18+ hour prime stable now causes whea errors within 2 minutes.
and 4.7ghz @ 1.240v caused whea errors after an hour or so, but now 1.235v is enough to run though prime for 15 hours without errors.

I tried to figure this out, but it's a real head scratcher. Other speeds and voltages seem to be unchanged.

Thanks- Yep, have SLI 680s. I put after-market Arctic twin-turbos on them to keep the noise down. Noise proofing is both on the inside and the outside, with much of the inside already covered out of the box by the good folks at corsair with the 550D.

Actually the noisiest part of the computer was the center mini-35mm fan that comes with the sabertooth. I took it out and put some stick-on copper passive syncs over the chips under it instead, so I only have one of the two thermal armor fans operating (the other one didn't make any noise).

Good going on 4.7ghz, I was never able to get it stable at that speed for prime small fft longer then 30 min or so, at least under 1.39VCore.
post #1239 of 3792
Quick question, sorry if this has been asked before. I'm using offset mode with the following settings:


ASUS z77-V Deluxe board with 3570k
X.M.P. settings for RAM, 1866Mhz

x45 with vcore offfset: 0.015V
LLC: "High" (50%)
CPU Power Phase Control: Optimized
CPU Power Duty Control: T-probe
EIST (Enhanced Intel SpeedStep Technology): Enabled
C1E: Enabled
C3: Disabled
C6: Disabled


Okay so since I'm using offset mode while my bench is running my vcore in cpu-z fluctuates. With this current run (only 42 minutes into it so far). It'll stay at 1.232V for most of the time, but it will also fluctuate to 1.224v and 1.240v. My question is if this run makes it to 12 hours with no errors. When I report my results do I use the highest vcore seen of 1.240v, or do I use the level it sat at for 95% of the time, the 1.232v?

Thanks.

Ah after 3 hours I blue screened with error 0x124, so I'll have to up the vcore and try again. I was running the default settings for Prime95 but is it better to use the custom blend? Is the only difference between the two the memory usage? Thanks.
