post #41 of 696
anyone know why when I try overclocking, it shows the OC in the bios.

But when I run cpuz and stress tests it shows my original processor speed as not being overclocked.

CPU: 3570K
Mobo: MSI Z77 GD65
RAM: 2X4GB RIPJAWS (on dimm 2 and dimm 4 as heatsink/fan is too huge)


I tried the OC genie and it seems to show the 4.2 ghz on cpuz no problem.

But when I manually do it, it does not show the overclock in windows.

These are the only bios changes that I have changed:

Disable:
Limit CPUID Maximum
Power Technology
C1E Support
OverSpeed Protection
Spread Spectrum

Enable:
Internal PLL Overvoltage
Execute Disable Bit
Intel Virtualization Tech

Is there anything I am doing wrong as to why I am not getting the overclock in windows?
Can anyone post the settings that they have to overclock this?

Thanks.

same thing happens to me when i use your settings. go in to your bios... reset to default and only change BLK,multiplyer, vcore voltage, X.M.P and reboot.

not sure which setting that is causing it not to work yet.

suspects are power tech or speed protection.
post #43 of 696
hey thanks! just got it to work!

currently at 4.5 ghz
vcore voltage at 1.250

Temps at 75-76 degrees in prime95
Cooling: coolermaster hyper 212 evo with push pull method

Have some questions:

1) I noticed huge fps increaes in games (world of warcraft) by about 30fps when XMP is enabled, do you know why this is?
2) Are my temps and voltages too high?
3) When I run Intel burn test on maximum freeze test temps tend to go 79-80 degrees, is this safe?
4) Should I increase fan speed or buy more fans for my cpu? I only have 2 case fans
5) What are safe temps for a 3570K using prime 95? Should I keep pushing my OC?
6) Should I try overclocking my ram? Will there be big performance boosts (as I have sen with XMP enabled)

Thanks all.

Specs:
CPU: 3570K
Mobo: MSI Z77 GD65
RAM: 2X4GB RIPJAWS (on dimm 2 and dimm 4 as heatsink/fan is too huge for Dimm1)

1) more then likely be your overclock, not XMP.
2) voltage is abit high, try 1.2v
3) thats ok, dont exceed 90c
4)if you can yes.
5) 90c
6) you can try yes, there will not be a "big" performance boost.

Thanks for the quick reply. For some reason though when I turn off xmp the frame rates are lower not sure why.
post #46 of 696
XMP set's profile stored in the memory, all it does is sets your ram to its native speed, timings and voltage. maybe when its disabled your ram is running much slower.. which would mean you would have to set speed/timings/voltage manually.thumb.gif

to be honest i'm unsure how memory speed effects fps on ivybridge, on sandybridge it had very little performance gain.
post #47 of 696
yeah, i think without xmp it wasnt using my rams native speed and timings. It was weird how my OC genie overclock at 4.2 was achieving higher frame rates then my 4.5 (without XMP) and noticed in OC GENIE they had XMP enabled, so i just enabled it in my 4.5 OC and it brought my fps higher.

once im done my CPU overclock, would the next step be to overclock the ram? or would those have to be overclocked at the same time?
post #48 of 696
yup, i've just changed my blk to 102 to get alittle increase on my ram for now sick of testing biggrin.gif will do more at the weekend.

0x124 is usually vcore or vtt related, 1155 chips usually have a wall where you have to start really turning up the voltage to go higher, or get the chip running cooler.
my z77a-gd80 arrived today, will have to try it out tomorrow.
