Nope, stock settings on memory. I've tried XMP profile and manually setting the frequency and timings. Same results either way.

I can't figure it out, my temps are fine though. Using 1.375v for 4.5GHz my temps are in the mid 70's on the hottest core using an Antec Kuhler 620 in push/pull. I see people with higher temps using an H100 on 1.3v...
Motherboard is an ASUS P8Z77-V Pro

Hmm we may have to point our finger at the motherboard here..

Your voltages are not showing via chip heat... 1.375v Antec 620 u should be hitting TJ Max.

So lets say the board is the issue and it is reporting voltages wrong...

Try another board and see what happens...

That is just way too much voltage.... what is the batch of your CPU? Did you updated the bios? Lower your PLL to around 1.6v/1.65v for 4.5GHz you dont need more.

guys I told him that all yesterday evening when we were on Steam chattin'.
'something is wrong and that's not right.'
I was thinking it was his overclock settings but now that the motherboard is mentioned, that's possible.

regardless, 3570K @ 4.5GHz shouldn't go anywhere near 1.3V ever..

I know i have a good CPU i just use 1.17v for 4500MHz prime stable (4h) but i would say that 1.22/1.24v is normal for that overclock anything above is just ridiculous.

I don't have access to another board without buying one. That's not really an option right now either.

BIOS is updated, I've tried PLL at 1.5, 1.55, 1.6, 1.65, 1.7, 1.75, and 1.8. Same results everytime. Actually no, at 1.55 I could take the voltage for 4.5GHz down to 1.365v.

more buggy ASRock boards then ASUS boards but sometimes it comes down to the actual board (individual purchaser) itself and 'poop happens'...
just like your first FX-8320 was buggy and the second one ran like it was suppose to.
my ASRock Z68 Pro3-M shorted out and the RMA they sent works fine (so far) knock on wood.
so pick your poison..

Yeah the specs look impressive. That's why I bought it. Also the onboard wireless was a perk for me because I use WiFi. If it weren't instant $10 off and $20 rebate making it the same price as the boards I was thinking of getting (ASRock Extreme6), I wouldn't have bought it. I understand the bad luck cycle, I just dont have any other machines right now and I just had to sit for a week to wait for these parts with no PC. I don't know if I can sit for another 2 weeks if I RMA the board.

The voltage reading is off, but the it operates fine. My goal was 4.5GHz and under 75C and I have that. So I don't know if it's worth returning and not having a computer for 2 weeks.

Oh that tom's hardware link doesn't have the P8Z77-V on it. It has it's bastard step-child the LK or LX or whatever.
