I am currently using 1.50 since I started freezing in the bios with 1.60. It scares me when stuff like that happens especially if I am in the middle of an instant flash and it happens.

Understood; that does sound terrifying. I think I'd be shaking waiting for it to be done if that was happening to me.

Currently sitting @ 4.5ghz, max temp 80C after 12hours in Prime on my entry-level AIO "Water cooler" tongue.gif

Offset +0.035
LLC Level 3
PLL 1.5
VTT 0.955
Everything else is auto.
RAM is 1.550, as I was getting RAM-based BSODs that upping the voltage slightly fixed and made it stable.

Yeah I have no luck with bumping VTT on these chips, even if I am getting one of the known QPI/VTT BSODs, there is no difference compared to stock VTT. However bumping up VCCSA gives the initial stability, though I have still seen crashes with it past 3-4 hour prime95 runs

Yeah I don't know if memtest puts enough stress on the memory controller, which is what that higher VCCSA vid is affecting.

Hi, I am looking at the Extreme4 M board for a new build and have a question. Is it possible to use this board with no fans connected to it? I ask this because this will be my first water-cooled build and I want to run all the fans off a fan controller to minimise noise.

I actually had luck bringing VTT DOWN. I'm currently at 0.955v and am rock solid.

doh.gif i had VCCIO and VCCSA all mixed up frown.gif anyway after setting my VCCSA back to 0.925, and my VTT up to 1.1 it still booted fine, odd that VCCSA actually provides that stability aswell tongue.gif
gotto run prime tonight to check how everything is holding up like this tongue.gif

There is no need to run fans off of the mobo unless you want to monitor fan speed.(or control it via software)

Hello everyone.
Asrock z77 owner here.
So far good impressions though overclocking with this motherboard looks challenging
Currently sitting ,8h blend 27.7ver prime stable, at 4520 (45*100,5) with per core overclocking.Everything disabled except manualy set voltages.Prolimatech Megahelms double fan cooling.
1.26 Vcore
0,925 VCCSA
1,025 Vtt
1.5 Vdimm
PLL overvoltage disabled
VPL 1.603
Rest all disabled (C states Power etc)
The weird thing now i got some Vengeance Black 2x4GB CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9 sticks.Everything works fine at 1600 9-9-9-1t doesnt like lower cl settings though doesnt even post at c8 c7.On my old combo i7 920 do DFI motherboard x58 they worked at 7-8-7-7-1t at 1600
Now what is really curious when i set 1:9 divider 1800 or 1866 .and memory timings on auto it is set at 9-11-11-28-1t
There i get memtest error in windows like after some time.But im 250 passes stable in memtest x86 v4.2 :O (over 5 hours)
I also am stable 32 mb superpi but fail linx with intel FFT AVX extension on a 6.5+ mbyte over hour run after the hour mark or so.
So i guessed it was something to do with VTT VCCA stability or ven VPLL Also Vdimm didnt help obviously.
The only thing that gave me a little more stability was pll overvoltage enable but stll no clear linx run.
I only got once 101 error bluescreen.All other tries it just failed to complete.
The only thing i didnt try is mess with the PLANE settings and add lot more vcore 1.27+
Any thoughts???

Also one more thing anyone tried playing battlefield 3 with overclocking.I noticed difference with per core or aLL core overclocking in stuttering confirmed by the in game diagram analysis with hyperthreading enabled of course.Seems like turbo was messing things up on all core overclock.
