[Official] EVGA Z77 FTW owners club!! - Page 13

post #121 of 182
My CPU multi won't change on my Z77 FTW. Thought it was me. Great. I can't "really" overclock because the multiplier won't change. Pretty crazy eVGA.

First, I bought an Ivy 3570K and a Z68, assuming eVGa would of course support Ivy like most other manufacturers. Then I decide to support eVGA regardless and I buy this board, and it's a pain in the ass. My HDD's are falling off the system AGAIN after 1.12. Unbelievable.

New BIOS to resolve the issues better be out soon. Or this is totally the last product I buy from eVGA. How depressing, I can't even remember how long I've been buying eVGA. wave2.gif

Sorry to hear your troubles, but those are pretty common issues with this board. Is it not letting you change the multiplier via the bios or something else? Make sure in the bios you're selecting per core (non os adjustable).

I can change the multiplier in the BIOS, but upon restart, the multiplier number is what I set it at, however, the current clock speed will not change. CPUZ reports a max 38 multi (turbo). I've tried all combinations of disabling C1e, C2, C3, EIST, Core voltages etc.

I can give the "per core" thing a try. Never tried that.

Ok, I know what's wrong. This happened to me as well. Here's the fix, its still pending to be addressed (per EVGA support), I know its a pita, but it works and its a fix for now:

We've discovered that the muliplier downclocks under load. Mine does. I've put in the settings given in the OC guide. What stops it is this.

Fixed the multiplier dropping issue. What I did was...
From the Overclocking tab in BIOS, navigate to CPU Configuration, then navigate to CPU Power Management Configuration and set:
IA Core Current Max(1/8 AMP): 2040
Power Limit 1 Value(1/8 WATT): 2040
Power Limit 2 Value(1/8 WATT): 2040
Long Duration Power Limit: 255
Long Duration Maintained: 120
Short Duration Power Limit: 255
Holds a steady x47 now.


Is there a better solution or a bios fix?



Once on these settings, i was stable (bios 1.04v though) @ 4.9 w/ 1.325v (2700k).


edit: as you can see, this was posted back in June...and still no official fix. If you can return your EVGA, I would highly recommend something else. If you can't, I"m hoping for owners EVGA will fix all these issues sometime soon.

Thank you wermad. I'll give that a try. It's nice to have someone who's used to these forums and been around a while point out some "oddities" in ownership.

By the way, lol at how fast this way typed out ->

Good luck mate thumb.gif. I don't own this board anymore but I'm happy to share my experiences and knowledge of my brief stint with the Z77 FTW smile.gif

Wow, they clearly put a lot of effort into that BIOS.

Deffinitely, lol.

I mean, this board has sooooooooooooooo much potential yet its a let down, especially with the bios. Give this board layout and design to Asus, GB, MSI, AR, etc. and they can make an uber board that is justifiable @ its $329 USD msrp thumb.gif

I finally returned my board for a refund. Probably gonna get a MSI Mpower Z77 instead since I'm only running one card!

Yeah, that's why I am going to buy a G1 Sniper 3 soon. Gigabyte has great software support.
