anyways, any recommendation for system settings for me to achieve 4.5Ghz? just wanna try. My board is the MSI Z77 Mpower, currently reading the thread but maybe you guys can guide me must with IVY overclocking.
I am not familiar with MSI mobos, so I can only say that these two threads helped me the most with overclocking Ivy:

For me stock clock is ok. But I still might consider or want to have lower idle temps
.

How are you mounting the Xigy cooler? We have the same CPU cooler.
My 3770k with a slightly liberal voltage which reports up to 1.28v hardly breaks 70'c while stressing with a 28'c ambient. My chip is NOT delidded.
With your chip delidded I expect you to get much better results even with not using a liquid tim on the IHS.

Since you have a fairly high ambient I'd expect idle temperatures to be closer to 40'c with a 35'c ambient. However even then I doubt you'd be in the upper 80's at 4.5 clock under load.
So I suspect a mounting issue with the Xigy cooler. Are you using the Xbow back mounting bracket to bolt down the cooler to your CPU or are you using the stock Intel Push Pins that come with the cooler?

The back plate bracket makes a very big difference. I just re-mounted my cooler and was able to take off another 2'c because I noticed my pins were uneven when I screwed them down.

In addition I made a duct for the 1 Xigy stock fan that comes with it. Using a broken 120mm fan bracket so it acts as a spacer between the cooler and Fan, which provides a more even air flow over the entirety of the cooler fins.

I use a customized bolt and nut to screw down my HSF with springs at each bolts to even out the tension. I only turn fasten the nuts by sense of touch (mechanics can understand what i mean by this) At 4.4ghz clock at my current ambient, it doesn't touch to 80's when loaded especially while playing intense demanding games and voltage plays around 1.23xx.

Now taking your experience with the Xigy HSF which you use for air cooling, (mine's as waterblock) i think there is a big difference with your temp with mine. Isn't watercooled system should run much cooler than the air cooled?

I've seen the success of my moded with this HSF back when my system is a Phenom II X4 960T B unlocked to six core. Temps never reached crazy level like 70+c. Taking that I overclocked it to 3.8ghz and turbo boost to 4ghz. You can check what I did to my Xigmatek on the pics on my sig rig.

I don't know, maybe my system monitoring software isn't telling me the right temps? coz the weird thing is when im running my system at prime95, the temps says 90 but when I touch all the parts of my watercooling set-up the heat isn't that high and the liquid cools fast, the HSF seats pretty well too, well i can't reach for the HSF base to verify the temps, I got no laser temps reader to do it too

Yes a proper water cooled setup should do better than my plain xigy cooler.
I'd look at your pressure for your mount, maybe the springs have weakened?

Wow just looked at your pictures, that is awesome!
How hard was it to convert the Xigy to do that? do you have a build thread?

nah i don't have the build log, its not that easy but it wasn't that hard either if you have the right tool and the set is skills? thanks BTW ^_^ kinda rare to have people appreciate that kind of mod. I've seen better than that. I think I've a Collermaster V12 moded as water block and it looks so good compared to mine.

A quick Q: Does the voltage required decrease with temperature? Leakage does, and thus the power consumption, so I'd guess so?

Asking because I've been eye balling phase change units, but I'd like to keep the voltage 24/7 friendly (1.5V~).
post #6329 of 7362
Cpus generally do need less voltage for the same clocks when going from air/water to subzero temps. My single stage phase is a little on the weak side for 3930k/3770k at 5Ghz + for long heavy loads, but for light daily use works pretty well.

Got my exchange chip and already looks promising. Stock voltage is now 1.04 vs. 1.318 with previous chip and is sitting at .984v @ 1.6ghz during idle in cpuid. Don't have time to oc it tonight, but am looking forward to it tomorrow. It looks like it might have been a batch test chip as there's a light 1' sq outline onthe center of this chip. Any thoughts?

Got some oc'ing done this morning and these are my preliminary numbers. Not fully stressed, but good enough to run a few benches.

1.20v - 4.5ghz (1.216v - CPUID)
1.26v - 4.6ghz (1.272v - CPUID)
1.32v - 4.7ghz (1.336v - CPUID)
