hi

first time replying in this forum. i have a question here, I'm trying to push my 3570K to 4.6 @ 1.380Vcore,any lower than that will cause my Prime95 to hang. Have tried to run it for 6 hours and core 1 failed. What should I do? Using P8z77m with 3570K.

Basically, it will shorten a CPU's life span. Ok, but here: a CPU life span is usually about 10 - 12 years. By overclocking it by let's say, to 4.5 and up voltage to 1.35 (if temps permits), you'd be degrading about 2 years so life span would be around 8 - 10. Of course, this is all theoretical based on how Ivy is created and we won't know for sure until people run it at that OC for over the 10 years. If Overclocking a CPU made a CPU's life span to a few years, I wouldn't even do it. The max vcore for an i7 930 (Bloomfield) was 1.40vcore and I have been running my 930 @ 1.392vcore and it's still going strong. It's been 3 years since I've had it.

Hmm, are you overclocking by using manual or offset?

I notice your screengrabs are for RoG boards (how do you screengrab in the UEFI by the way?). Will this approach work for any Asus board as well? I have a Sabertooth Z77 with an 3570K that I'm hoping to overclock (eventually).

Plug in any USB and press F12. Also, it should work with any Asus UEFI board.

Mkay... I was poking around the UEFI and I clicked something called "OC Tuner" (just to see what it was) and the whole screen went black, followed by a boot up.

My computer now appears to be at 4.2 GHz, and I didn't really do anything... Should I go back, find a way to turn OC Tuner off (can I do that from the desktop?) and do everything manually? Or... is this just as good?

OC tuner is like a cheat way of OCing. It OC's using fail-safe settings meaning it uses an absurdly high amount of voltage for a certain clock. Like at 4.2, you should be running that at stock, but I'd imagine it running it at around 1.27vcore. When I set mine to 4.6, it makes it run at 1.32 and when I tested it myself, it only took 1.19vcore for 4.6.

Voltage is at... 1.216, is that bad? Temps are holding at 49 - 71 C (depending on which software you ask...)

1. Set ratio to 42 and keep stock voltages as offset
2. Stress with Prime95 for 10 minutes
3a. If pass, bump ratio by 1
3b. If fail, increase voltage by a notch and re-test or lower ratio
4. If passed 10 minutes and happy with overclock, stress-test for 12 hours for stable confidence
5. If passed 10 minutes and unhappy with overclock, repeat steps 2 to 5.

I followed this and got up to 4.9 Ghz and passed the stress test with AIDA64 I bumped it up to 50 and it wouldnt boot. It would just hang. When you say in step 3b increase voltage by a notch what did you mean by that? The voltage offset? Because I went all the way up to +0.150 and it still wouldnt boot. So please clarify, because I wanna achieve 5.0Ghz like you did. Im using a Corsair H100 as a cooler in a Push/Pull config and I have faith I can hit the 5.0 mark. I decided to bump back down to my regular state at 4.5 with Auto CPU voltage offset so I can write this. Thanks in advance Swag


EDIT: My setup

i5 3570K
Corsair H100
8GB Ram @ 1600Mhz
AX850w
P8Z77-V Pro MOBO (BIOS 1504)

It may be easier for you to use manual until you find a stable OC, this was meant for lower OC's so it'd provide stability a whole lot quicker while taking away the confusion of going from manual to offset. What was the vcore you needed for 4.9? I will give you step-by-step instructions after.

My VCore was at 1.409 under load. I was too scared to push it higher than 0.150 on the offset because ive heard the rule of thumb on max voltage is ~1.500
