What GPU is currently in it ?

He's tested it with a 6850 but right now he's just using onboard video.

Did you check BIOS settings to make sure iGPU and GPU weren't conflicting with each other ?

What is iGPU and what setting should he be looking for? I'm not very proficient when it comes to video cards, hence why I'm posting for help biggrin.gif.

iGPU is the on-board GPU with i7 Sandybridge (I don't want to risk saying the 3770k has it , i'm not sure tongue.gif )

Does it POST with the 690 ?

He has a 3570K. I'll ask him if he hears it posting but the 660's HSF spins as well the as the CPU fan that I do know.

Only 2011 SB-E chips are without an iGPU. The rest of Intel's IB & SB all have iGPUs in them mad.gif with relatively better performance in the higher models.

First of all you should be using Intel Burn Test to verify stability on your OC. Prime95 takes over half a day of stressing to not prove what IBT can do in under an hour.
Run IBT for 20+ passes (I do 25) at max stress and see if you're stable: http://majorgeeks.com/IntelBurnTest_d5987.html (be sure to watch your temps, IBT will cause higher temps than Prime95)
Also, although I'm still very new to OCing Ivy/Sandy vs C2D/C2Q OCing, I thought RAM played almost zero role in your OC. I know on S775 and older it played a very large role due to RAM and FSB with how they are connected to the CPU speed. With Ivy/Sandy and any i7/i5, I was told and read that your RAM has nothing to do with your speed when raising your multiplier. This is most obvious when you do some searching on OCing RAM and it is completely independent of CPU OCing. Unless you plan on OCing through your BCLK instead of your multiplier, which would defeat the entire purpose of owning a K series chip (unlocked multi). Also if your RAM is 2400mhz RAM, then it's not "OCd RAM", that is the stock speed of the RAM and your brother either needs to do some reading of his own or look at your RAM info.
Of course faster memory is going to increase memory bandwidth and give you a boost in some applications, but if you are purely talking CPU OCing, then it does not matter when OCing a K series chip through it's multiplier:


(http://www.anandtech.com/show/4503/sandy-bridge-memory-scaling-choosing-the-best-ddr3/7)
and
(http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/288300-30-best-memory-2600k-overclocking)
In other words turn your RAM to it's default speed/voltage and your OC is not going to become unstable unless your IMC is awful and requires underclocked RAM to run the OC.
(If I'm wrong someone correct me, but this is my understanding)
_

This post implies that overclocked RAM will not affect your stability and your voltage when overclocking your CPU. This implication is false in most instances.
Also about the bash against Prime, please tell me you have some evidence to back this up and not some opinionated viewpoint of a sub-par tech journalist. Since when is IBT the standard for testing stability? Please link me to someone that is reputable saying this.

The same person posted they could run numerous tests of IBT but crash on prime. Prime can test more than just your cpu. It also can test(with a blend test) your overclocked ram that you "implied" would not affect your cpu stability.

Also if you really want to test stability I would try folding@home.

well ive heard of IBT could crash your system faster than Prime95 could but apparently not. This is what i think if u can run prime 95 for more than 18 hrs then your **** is stable maybe not 100% but 99.5%
