wait, what?

The IvyBridge has a lower TDP compared with the Sandy Bridge. On my 2600k @ 4200 Mhz in Prim95 the power goes above 97W and it throttles. I don't know the exact number for IvyBridge but I know it's lower than this , so the mainboard's VRMs have it easier . As far as I can see, the throttling has nothing to do with the temperature of the processor, but rather the temperature of the mainboard's VRM.

no, the process of overclocking on ivybridge is exactly the same as on the sandybridge,

you can even say that it is harder to overclock an ivybridge than the sandybridge, but not the other way around

lower tdp doesn't always mean it can overclock better,

What I meant was that for the same frequency in OC , the Sandy Bridge will be pulling more current , thus on the boards with poor VRM this can cause the CPU to throttle back to the stock frequency.

any decent overclocking board will handle them both just fine, i never heard anyone saying that their board can't handle a 2500k but handles a 3570k easily.

Just wondering, what does everyone think of ASRock Z77 Extreme3? Is it a good board?
post #1989 of 3170
I'm having issues with my Mamba not charging anymore when the system is off. When I turn my computer off at night, I place my mouse on its dock so it's fully charged the next day when I go to use it again but the USB ports are no longer giving any power to the dock when the power is off. Does anyone know what happened? I've gone through the BIOS but I can't really find anything that would make sense as to why it's not giving power to the USB ports anymore while the computer is off.
