Help with my 3770k overclock

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
So I am trying to OC my new CPU. Used the ASUS auto tuning and am quite puzzled by the results. I used the auto tuning since I'm kind of a noob with overclocking and am kind of scared to screw anything up as I need my machine to be stable.

This is my setup:

Asus P8Z77-V Deluxe
Intel i7 3770k
Coolit ECO water cooling
G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 32GB

So after the OC it got me 4.4ghz but the voltage got tuned up to 1.375??? wow that seems to be a ridiculously high voltage. Needless to say my temps skyrocketed (60s-70s Celsius). Since some of you are using this board, I attached screens of what I'm seeing on my computer and wanted to ask is it safe to just tune the voltage down to 1.3 (or lower, what should I do?)

I already turned it down to 1.33 but figured it would be much safer to ask the board first before I do anything that would screw up my system

Also with the auto tuning something happend to my ram. It's supposed to be quad channel and DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666). But for some reason in the CPU-Z screenshot attached it shows 686mhz??? did autotune do something to my ram? seems like I lost a ton of performance there?

Any help greatly appreciated.. Thanks! OC.jpg 270k .jpg file ram.jpg 61k .jpg file

Firstly the ram is running at the correct speed, you need to double the speed of what cpu-z says its at, This is because ddr stands for double data rate. Secondly dont use asus auto tune, the bios settings may seem daunting at first, but overclocking on 1155 is cake. Just put the mulit to what you want at ie. 45 multi for 4,.5ghz, turn off pll overvoltage, I forget the name of the setting but you will have options of high, very high and extreme, just put it on very high (for 4.5ghz and above. and then just increase the vcore until you get her stable.

thanks for the reply! extremely helpful info!

haha you make it seem so simple though, is it really as simple as changing those few settings and finding the right voltage?

Really don't want to make a wrong move and spend hours trying to get my comp to function properly, thats why I used the noob asus auto tune redface.gif

For simplicity sake, is it ok if I just keep my current settings and change the voltage in asus auto tune to like 1.29 or something?

Well i see that the auto tune has also changed your bclk freq. as well, Everyone says to keep that at 100, im not sure if its harmful, but seriously just do it manually. I was just like you a few months back, but i got my new ivy chip (after upgrading from sandy) i just went into the bios and i was done in like an hour to get 4.5ghz (did some stress testing afterwards) but i havnt had a problem with my overclock. Dont worry you cant really 'break' anything. If you are going for a small overclock like 4.2ghz you might not even have to raise the voltage past stock voltage at all (if you get lucky)

Hey Monkey, we have the same mobo + cpu (I'm using H100 liquid cooling), so maybe this might help for reference. I'm a newbie at OC'ing too, this is my first setup doing so, but I've managed a stable Prime95 for 17 hours. The temps seem a bit low overall, so either my CPU is throttling somehow due to my settings, or I have a lucky draw.


Intel Core i7 3770k
Corsair H100 Liquid Cooling
OCZ 850W ZX Series 80 Gold Plus
Asus P8Z77-V Deluxe (BIOS Revision 906)


These are the screenshots I took in BIOS for the Ivy Bridge Stable Club thread:

wow awesome! thanks InterSpectra!

Is it safe to say If I just copy his settings in my BIOS (maybe leave the voltage a bit higher and work my way down?) that I will be good to go?

awesome community for OC noobs!!

Yes looks good, but change the load line calibration from auto to high (up to 4.4ghz) or very high for 4.5gh plus.
