So question(s):

What is Rapid Start in BIOS? Not finding anything in the UD5H book?
What is Virtu? How do I enable it? Do we actually see gains in FPS? If so, I want it. NAO

So I settled on a 24/7 4.7GHz @ 1.33V in BIOS. 1.325 volts crashed 12 hours and 5 minutes into prime. So, I gave it a .005 bump in volts and called it stable. Hasn't crashed in a video game, browsing, or anything else for that matter so I'm assuming it's good.

Well I just return my crosshair V to microcenter , so I have $259 gift card , now my dilemma is should u get the 3570k or the 3770k , I ask because I see some people said that the HT ( 3770k) make the games run smother , any true about that , thanks , by the way this is the first time buying Intel ,

HT has no affect on games. The 3570k will get 200-300MHz higher than the 3770k due to HT requiring most voltages and creating more heat.

It is up to you, I personally prefer the 3770k, even if I am getting 300MHz less than 3570k owners, HT is useful when you use a program that uses it... but no games really do. Keep in mind that 4.6GHz vs 5GHz on these processor is pretty much 0FPS increase in games, your well beyond what the game actually needs.

That's a nice chip you have there, not a lot of voltage leak. Really good temps for 1.33v. I see many 3770k owners backing down to about 4.6GHz to achieve those temps, with similar cooling as you.

You must have that 7970 overclocked quite a bit, I get about 10850 in 3DMark11 with the sig overclocks. If only the 680 had voltage control. frown.gif

No effect on games, if you don't plan to upgrade anytime soon you can go with the 3770K as more apps take advantage of HT over time, but @ the same time if 3570K is great for gaming.

Rapid start is like S3, except everything is written to a 2-8GB partition (depending on your memory total) on an SSD instead of the memory. When you put your computer to sleep, you can unplug it indefinitely, and resume from where you left off prior to sleep. FWIW, Asus didn't have instructions for GPT, and I found them in one of the Gigagbyte manuals, so I know it's in there smile.gif

You're describing Hibernation right there. I thought Rapid Start was the faster POST/booting on Z77.

Dunno if it's SSD-only like everything says cause my boot time is something like 15 seconds from beep to desktop with my HDD. It's so clazy. It's a five year-old WD Caviar.

Nope, Rapid Start is Intel's implementation of Microsoft's Hibernation.

Rapid start is just like Hibernation and Sleep.
