post #41 of 3170
punceh - how did you get i5-3750k to 4.8ghz @ 1.23V ..what settings you using?? Also do you know your CPU batch number?

That's a very nice OC at very low voltage.

I will start OCing this weekend...I'm hoping to hit 4.5ghz at under 1.25 volts...though that might be difficult.

I haven't overclocked in 5 years...I hope I don't mess up!!

basically its some sort of "sleep" function, i think this isnt really worth using if you have a SSD. it might be worth checking out otherwise though.
- ASRock Instant Flash
BIOS flash utility
- ASRock APP Charger
allows charging some devices(im not sure if its only Apple or others aswell) in sleep/hibernation modes, and charges a bit faster aswell.
- ASRock SmartView
some internet explorer plug in, i found it pita
- ASRock XFast USB
increased usb3 transfer speeds? havent had a chance to test since i dont really have usb3 devices that can handle high speeds tongue.gif
- ASRock XFast LAN
comes with a pita overlay and it supposedly speeds up your speeds by tweaking something in the registry
- ASRock XFast RAM
can create ramdisks with this, havent tried yet
- Lucid Virtu Universal MVP
it lets the internal gpu control how much frames are being send out to your monitor, it prevents screen tearing at frame rates higher than your monitors refresh rate. it doesnt really add any performance though. if your frame rate is higher than what you need and this kicks in, you'll see inflated numbers in fps counting programs though these are fake frames tongue.gif

Yeah none of these apps are that useful, although AXTU is nice just to see voltages, etc and allows a bit of testing if you want. I did install XFast USB but haven't really tested it to see if there is a performance increase. The rest I would avoid. Lucid Virtu MVP has promise, but it is still too buggy for me to leave installed. The Witcher 2 wont even run with the program installed FFS.

Even with 1.28vcore fixed, llc lv1 at 4.5ghz on 3570k+extreme4, one worker stopped at 3 hours mark. highest temp was 80C on air.

I will have to retest aswell. I am at 1.28 @ 4.6 and It was stable for 8 hours before. I may have the newest version although I will check and report back.

What about ASRock Instant Flash?? Wouldn't that be useful? Or is it basically the same thing as doing it in BIOS?

BTW - The "Instant Internet BIOS Flash" option in BIOS doesn't work for me....I think I will have to do it the old fashion way... anyone else experience this? frown.gif

USB was faster for me but I was using a usb 2.0 device, so I cannot attest to the 3.0.

I would recommend against Instant flash and flash it through dos bootable disk instead. Flashing in windows is a good way to brick a motherboard.

Also if anyone needs help with the dos bios flashing pm me and I can help you. I would much rather you learn something different than brick your mobo.

yea, only installed drivers and kept xfastlan, it's the same program as Cfosspeed traffic shaping. It could be placebo effect but it's weird without it after using it for a few years, you can turn off the graph btw.

- ASRock Extreme Tuning Utility (AXTU)
- ASRock Instant Boot
- ASRock Instant Flash
- ASRock APP Charger
- ASRock SmartView
- ASRock XFast USB
- ASRock XFast LAN
- ASRock XFast RAM
- ASRock Crashless BIOS
- Lucid Virtu Universal MVP
I think I've heard some people using Lucid Virtu...not sure...

Only ones that I use are AXTU (great fan control IMO) and Lucid Virtu for video encoding. The rest are pretty much useless to me.

3570K on an ASRock Z77 Extreme4 here. Haven't gone above 4.0GHz (63-degree average) yet, only have the OEM HSF on right now. Still piecing together the water cooling hardware, but I would like to start OC'ing within the next few weeks.

One question, I disabled SpeedStep. Isn't that what causes the idle clocks to drop down to 1600MHz? I'm still idling at 1600MHz with it disabled. wha-smiley.png
