for me, i dont like using software oc, ET6 didnt work that well for me either,
if i use the auto oc, it starts using blck, which doesnt work well with my build,
with ivy, they say wink.gif , you dont oc using blck..
and i hear to many problems, readings are off, things dont work,
software is more sensitive to fails too..

the bios is way better if you oc..more like, what you set, is what you get, takes a bit more effort tho,
took me a while to figure out how it works, what all the settings do etc,
now i can do a oc from scratch in a minute orso ..lol


i like the asus software tho, looks good, but when i do some searching,
like here on hardwarecanucks
http://www.hardwarecanucks.com/forum/hardware-canucks-reviews/17808-asus-rampage-ii-gene-matx-lga1366-motherboard-review-7.html
and look at what they say about it ...well

TurboV is an overclocking utility ASUS recently came out with that provides basic overclocking abilities including voltage adjustments from within Windows. We can also save profiles and load them from within Windows. The first thing to note is that changes in TubroV change the BIOS settings. This is generally a big no no with Windows overclocking software. If someone should set something too high for the system to run, you are now going to try to boot with those settings which can easily fail. Regardless of how well a system recovers from a failed overclock, you never want software in Windows to change settings in the BIOS.

Of course, like so many manufacturer supplied overclocking software, TurboV has functionality faults. Changing some voltages at certain point’s results in instant lock ups. Adjusting vCORE at any point did nothing but freeze the system on us. Again, pardon our enthusiasm, but we have seen this type of thing before and it always amazes us that a manufacturer would add a piece of software that doesn't even work. One last kick of the dead horse for us was when we went to close the software...it doesn't. It loads with Windows, not by our choice, and gives us no ability to prevent it from doing so. In addition to that, once it loads, you cannot close it. Again ASUS, we love innovative software but bug riddled invasive software is not something we appreciate with our motherboards. Our recommendation, don't bother installing TurboV, do your clocking in the BIOS and save the headache.


not saying its all bad, it could provide novice ocers with a handy and easy to work with tool,
but almost all ocers i know, do their oc's in the bios.. smile.gif

Working on getting to 5.0GHZ stable--almost there, can run most anything, but Pime95 fails after a few hours. I want to see what effect raising or lowering VCCIO and VCCSA have. Do these have to be changed together, or can they be changed independently? I think I read somewhere where they should be within 0.05V of each other. I'm running Ivybridge (3770K).

I think your referring to ram vcore and vccio being within 0.5v of each other, I don't think that applies anymore.

Give this a try mike. Put offset at lowest setting so +0.05 or 0.005? Can't remember which is the lowest setting. Then overclock using additional turbo voltage setting. You need to test how much vcore your getting in windows, I'm at lowest offset with +0.205 on turbo voltage which gives me 1.336/1.344 in windows under load.

I've had a huge improvement getting stability using this method as supposed to using fixed CPU vcore or just offset on its own.

Im not sure if this only applies to asrock motherboards though, I stupidly just noticed yours is made by MSI. Sorry I don't know how MSI boards overclock, this is how me and few others have got better overclock in the asrock owners club thread.

Yeah, the MSI Z77 MPower won't let you do offset volting. The LLC is supposed to be rock solid though. I've got mine set at 100% and never noticed any swings over what I set my VCore to.

I would 24/7 that. Going for 5.2 might get iffy on the vcore though.

Thanks. Have actually been trying out 5.2Ghz 24/7 but dialed down vcore to around 1.432v on load (using 0.200v offset) and so far so good. This setting is Lynx stable but not Prime95 stable but seems good enough 24/7 with temps less than 70C average use so far.

Anyways, was able to run some benchmarks after delidding:

spi 1m 6.515s, 3770k @ 5551.7Mhz, G-Skill TridentX @ 2741Mhz, Asus MVE, H20 cooled @ 23°C ambient



spi 32m 5m52.391s, 3770k @ 5551.7Mhz, G-Skill TridentX @ 2741Mhz, Asus MVE, H20 cooled @ 23°C ambient


CPU Frequency: 5632.18 MHz http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=2670416
RAM Frequency: 2730.8 MHz http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=2670416

Above spi runs are @ 2741Mhz ram freq but I guess they don't count without CPU-Z validation. IMC and rams have been tested for 28xx MHz but didn't do CPU-Z validation --- will have to do so sometime along with the other benches (and maybe up the SPI runs a bit more).
