Good job with the findings u posted! People can use that information.

Once I got my CPU OC to 4.7, I left it stable and tried OCing the RAM. Broke a stick. 1866 booted fine at 1.55v.

It was when I tried to go over that the RAM broke.

Now when I try to boot into Windows over 4.4ghz the Windows logo freezes and it doesn't get any further. Memtest86 reveals RAM to be the culprit.

Strange, i oced my 1600 ram multiple times till 1866 with 1.65v And memtest showed me it was still fine.. Rma? Or is it to old already?
Im about to buy 2133mhz (9-9-9-27) ram but im not sure it gives me benefits over 1600mhz (9-9-9-24) and worth the 90 bucks..

Yeah, OCing it to 1866 wasn't a problem at all, it went fine at 1.55 as I said. It's when I tried to put it to 2133 @ 1.65 with some slightly worse timings that it failed on me.

And yeah, once I identify the bad stick I'll RMA it.

Update:
Back at 4.7ghz - turns out when I cleared CMOS due to the failed boot with RAM at 2133mhz, I forgot to change a setting back to its correct place. Derp.

Setting was PLL overvoltage.

Alrighty. Set it to 4.6ghz for temperature reasons, I'm happy with that. If I run into a higher end cooler then I'll push it harder.

Final settings:

Cooler: ThermalTake Water 2.0 Performer
+0.120 vcore
1.011 VTT
1.55 DRAM
Multiplier 46
BCLK 100 (obviously)
LLC Level 3 (I wanted 4 but it kept crapping the bed on me)
PLL over voltage ON
SpeedStep ON
Turbo Boost ON

Will post screens after it finishes its prime run.

Good job with the findings u posted! People can use that information.

Your CPU does affect your RAM OC and vise verse. The tighter timings on your RAM, the harder it is to overclock the CPU and the higher the OC on your CPU the harder it is to get your RAM to work right and so forth.

My cooler is mid-range, so this is the highest clock I'm comfortable with. It's very unlikely my chip will be at 100% load.. ever, so I doubt the temps will get that high again.

Nice stable clock there. biggrin.gif

Since this, I've taken PLL voltage down some to just reduce the volts passing through. Temps have dropped by 2c.. Nothing major, hah.

I got to 4600 first day i got it and I havent had time to play with it to go any higher. It was the easiest overclock I have ever done.(not trashing you just sharing my experience smile.gifthumb.gif)

post #429 of 3172
hi guys im currently installing my z77 extreme 4 and i was wondering where you plug in the firewire 1394 cable? They all look like usb ports.. Also, where do i plug in my case fans because my case (600T corsair) has a fan controller requiring a molex plug.

help!

thanks
post #430 of 3172
hmm 1.60 made my previous stable overclock unstable it seems, keep getting prime95 crashing / not responding after an hour. Anyone else seeing changed stability after this BIOS update ?
