My system seems to be stable at 1,38V. What is my concern, after more or less 4 minutes during load test (Prime95/OCCT) I can observe that my processor throttles from 45x to 34x multiplier every 10-15 seconds. My first thought was, my system's overheating. However the temperature on the hottest core does not exceed 62C under stress. Than I checked the voltage and I do not think this is the problem either. I used Asrock'a AutoOC function in UEFI and for 44x multiplier system was also droping multiplier despite 1,44 voltage shown by CPU-Z.
Using latest 1.10 UEFI BIOS release from Asrock's website.

BTW. This is my first contact with SB. My latest OC experience was DualCore 2160. And people say it is easy to OC sandy bridge. Right... Offset, PLL, LLC, etc... :|
Thanks in advance.

If you check the original post, there is a link to sandy bridge overclocking on asrock z77 motherboards. It even has pictures showing settings used and was done with an i7.

False alarm on those temps rofl. Coretemp must not have been keeping up and after running Realtemp, they're only a little lower tongue.gif

I just picked up a 3570k and Extreme 4 from Microcenter. Still have to order ram but I've heard that this board is really picky about the ram you use. The ASrock website recommends the G.SKILL Sniper Low Voltage Series but I was planning on using buying:

G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series CL8
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231445

Should I listen to the site and go with the sniper series or can anybody confirm that the CL8 Ripjaws X work fine?

Thanks

Thanks for the answer. I saw that guide earlier, but now I am a little bit confused. On my mobo's UEFI I am missing quite particular option CPU Core Voltage. Instead of this I have CPU Voltage Offset option I can choose between 'Offset Mode' or 'Auto'. I was playing with VTT thought I was doing fine. Apparently I wasn't. Also CPU Load-Line Calibration I can choose between Auto,100%,50%,0%. Any ideas how I should set the Voltage Configuration? Maybe a link to article explaining Offset.

How Voltage configuration looks like on yours Z77 motherboards? It seems that overclocking on Z77 differs a lot from Z68.

What I observed in OCCT when multiplier is changed to lower 34x the Vcore drops from 1.37 to 1.25 and VIN4 changed 0,84 to 0,60. So I am still trying to figure out what cause multiplier drop. Is it Vdroop. How prevent this from happening?

LOL I have the same build..even that RAM! That RAM works fine..you just have to go into BIOS and load the profile (ram timings)..that is already setup for it. So far it's working perfectly...no issues.

FYI - Where does ASRock recommend the low voltage RAM? I never saw that. If I did...I *might* of went for the Sniper to be safe...but like I said..so far no issues with the Ripjaws.

EDIT: Nvm I see in the list of supported RAMs.

Ok, good to hear that they work. I don't see why they wouldn't since they were made for the Z77 boards but that list on ASRocks site is fairly short on options.

vdroop shouldnt be 0.12 redface.gif well maybe.. try setting LLC to the highest level just to see if it still happens? the multiplier dropping looks like either overheating, or a core failing on the test therefor one core clocks down to save power and this results in a weird speed reading by some programs? what power saving features did you enable/disable?

No change when CPU LLC set to 100% or 50%. It is not overheating since all cores are below 62 in stress (RealTemp/OCCT). The system is very stable, no BSODs at all. C3 C6 disabled, C1E enabled. Check my gallery to see rig's UEFI settings.

Anybody running the Samsung 30 nm ram on this board?
post #200 of 3170
Hello!!!

I'm thinking to buy the Asrock z77 Extreme4 for my i5 2500K.

and I would like to know some opinions from those who have this motherboard.

If it is a good motherboard, good for overclocking, etc ..... Or if you have any problems.

Thanks!!!!!!!!
