I will be putting a build together with the z77-deluxe very soon and I was wondering, when installing all of the above drivers, is there any particular order that is preferred? Also, is it better to first fully update windows 7 before installing drivers or should I begin driver installation after reaching the desktop for the first time and then update windows?

Thanks.

Make sure you have SP1 (you can get an ISO with SP1 integrated which you can burn to a DVD or USB here).

As for order, I install chipset (Intel INF → Intel Management Engine) first. Then I install USB 3.0, LAN, audio, and other devices if applicable. If you aren't using say your third-party SATA controller, you can disable that in the BIOS, so that you won't have to install any drivers for it.

I also update the BIOS before starting anything as it can help fix some bugs when install your OS.

So I've been overclocking all morning. try different settings to get a good stable overclock.

I originally set out for a 4.5ghz overclock, but found that I was having to put way too much voltage to get to past even 10 minutes of prime95 blend. I settled on dropping the overclock to 4.4ghz and have been stable for the pass 2 hours still running. I will let it run for 12 hours.

Question though after it has passed 12 hours of prime95 should I go back and use offset voltage? For my final overclock or leave it at manual. CPU-Z reads 1.256 volts, 1.250 in bios. Temperatures are staying just below 70c Using RealTemp 3.70.

What voltages CPUZ shows during 100% load?
Please use Intel Burn Test 2.53 with at least 4GB memory
Prime, OCCT and other tests can be stable for days, when IBT BSODs after few minutes.
And IBT "burns" CPU best, on my CPU, Prime or OCCT gives maximum 72-76C, IBT max is about 83C

These CPU has problems jumping from 4.4 to 4.5, needs 30-50mV for theses additional 100MHz to overclock and causes 6-10C jump in temperature

My 3570k needs 1.232V for 4.4GHz during full load, 1.264V for 4.5GHz, everything higher is too much for my "poor " Thermaltake TRUE Spirit

1.256V is idle voltage? What setting you have in Load Line Calibration?
wow... 88C at IBT,

I have 1,264V at idle - 1,232V @ Full Load perfectly stable

At 4.4 GHz I think you can try to lower this voltage to 1.240 or 1.232

Anyway I had idle BSODs at LLC set to Ultra High
