I don't even have the most current BIOS for my board. I have the first BIOS release that supported Ivy and probably won't upgrade because I had a nightmare situation flashing my board this past summer that left me with a semi-bricked bios chip that needed replaced for $30. If I upgrade again I will just buy a chip with the BIOS firmware already on it from eBay for $10. One thing I really like about Asus boards, the removable BIOS chip is awesome.

my P8Z68-M Pro is a 6+2 phase but it's the BIOS and limited options, I have even seen a few threads about it,
not to many AI Tweak settings and the ones it does have are limited in sub-options..
it was a good deal since I needed a replacement ASAP, but now I'm going Z77.

Do you ever increase the base clock? Also is vcore the other voltage I should be changing?
I need to just try and replicate someones BIOS settings and see how good my CPU/ram really is.

Vcore is the main voltage for OCing and I use that first before going all tweaker on all the other setting really. Just set 1.35 vcore in the bios and keep upping the multi by 1 until it wont boot then then keep upping vcore per multi uppage until 1.45 vcore. It might not boot from temps so let me know.

Alright cool I'll try that when I get home. Should I turn the rest of the settings/voltages on auto? Should I turn of turbo boost? I'll leave the LLC on turbo, because that's what Sin had it at in his guide.

Put LLC on 100% and have PLL at 1.8

Double post but worth it for the info.

There are actually 3-4 batches before release date. The L batch or Malaysia like mine have 4 before release date and the Costa Ricas have 3 before release date. This is because manufacturers got the plans from the heads at Intel before others. They made early batches not just to stock up on them but to test them for around a month before hand before releasing them.

What I believe is happening is that the older batches are being dug into from supplies which yield lower temps mine was a week 22 batch and I had really good temps before delid I could get 4.9 easily and fold but temps were in the 90s.

These earlier batches or test batches as I call them have less glue under the IHS making better contact and I believe Intel made a change with the glue amount of possible testing from manufacturers stating that after a lot of tim change the IHS became a bit movable to the point they could take them off. That's why these later batches have really good IMCs but don't clock as well. The manufacturers samples actually do clock higher and almost all of the test batches do this as well. I think they all used a good batch of silicon, or possibly controlled the manufacturing process a bit more in order to make sure everything was done correctly. Which is why we see a lot more glue and tim on these newer batches.

Currently have a 3770k installed on my Asrock z68 Fatal1ty Pro board. Needs 1.32v at 4.8Ghz and that's with 4 sticks of 1866Mhz DDR. Either my chip is amazing and my board is holding it back or some Z68 boards have no issue overclocking 3770k's as high as z77 boards.

really.?!
that's interesting because I need voltage similar to SB (2500K) on my Z68 board when running my IB (3570K) just like yours.
and from the discussion I was having earlier I now feel I need to research this more..
