No, because it works doesn't it? It will be miraculously solved for haswell. wink.gif

I'd hope a cottage industry of 'improving' these chips springs up though.

- Temps are now 71c on the hottest core
- My new OC is 4.709Ghz
- Vcore set to manual 1.23v. PLL on auto. VCCSA and VCCIO on auto. DRAM at 1.66v.
- Still using the H100 with 2x Cougar Vortex Fans as push and another as a rear case fan
Other notes:
My RAM is at 2400mhz. HT is off. LLC is set to high. Internal PLL overvoltage is disabled. CPU current is set to 130%. Using the latest BIOS for my mobo.

I'm curious, and in no way bashing you, why you would turn HT off on the 3770k? Wouldn't it have been cheaper to get the 3570k then? The whole point of the 3770 line is the HT.

I turn it off for gaming. I'm a computing student that uses a lot of adobe software also so HT does help somewhat, but the main reason is that I just wanted the best of the best Ivy's smile.gif

It will use less voltage, so therefore probably clock higher, as well as run faster in certain applications (such as most games) that are not able to utilize hyper-threaded cores fully. Hyper threading actually reduces the performance of each individual core.

EDIT: But it adds a virtual core for each physical core, so heavily threaded applications will run faster.

I know all that. I'm asking, why did they get a 3770 if they're not going to use the HT? Like in my case, I do 3D modeling, some photoshop, and some audio editing so I'll be using the HT, hence why I got the 3770. But, if I wasn't using those virtual cores, then I would've gotten the 3570k instead.

Gotcha, but you might want to make sure you're stable with it on if you're going to use it for Adobe software. That's where the real test will come in. Games don't really push the CPU, they push the GPU.

Yeah, and as I said, money wasn't too much of a problem and I manually turn it on for when I do need it for my work.

That's a good idea. I might have to do that, too. I'll just make a second profile where I'm stable with HT off and less voltage thumb.gif like I said, just remember to make sure you're stable with HT on. The last thing you want is to be doing some work and the thing crashes before you can save, it's happened to me too many times in the past

So far it looks like 3770k's overclock better than 3570k's too.
As for gaming with HT I just set Affinity settings smile.gif, works like a charm.

true but not by much and cost is over 100 bucks more. Is it really worth it?
