Ok, thank you swag for your help smile.gif

I noticed though, with the 1.136-1.144vcore oc when i first start cpu-z the multiplier is at 42x for like a min or so before going down to idle, but with the other settings (only offset changed) they are at x16 right away.

It's fine, it's just adjusting itself. Happens to basically every one I know that OCs. CPU-Z may just record what "speed" it was using when you launched the app and if you ever pressed the validate button and waited that long period of time, you will realize that CPU-Z basically saves the info and just replays it back to the server. So basically this is what's happening. During a certain period in launch, it chooses a certain "file" and replays it as the first info when it pops the gui. And it constantly saves temp files to show your CPU-Z info.

I got an Asus Z77 sabertooth board with a 3770k CPU. My question is after Prime95 is done. Well not really done because 24 hours is crazy. I just can't turn off sleep mode. do I move the core Voltage gradually? My core Voltage is right now 1.288V with the core speed of 4430.48 Mhz. while using Prime95. without using it I'm like 1630.82. I'm completely lost.

There is something called vdroop and C1E. They are power-saving features. It means, when you don't need the speed, it clocks down and lower voltage so it can "rest". Once you start playing games or something some what intensive, it clocks back up to your OC. What I would do is test using manual voltage. Slowly lower vcore or raise. If you pass 10 minutes of prime95, lower it until unstable and put it back up 2 notches and test there. If you fail, raise voltage and keep trying until you pass 12 hours.

24 hours is excessive and you don't need that much. 12 hours is perfect.

Sorry for only replying now, wasn't at my PC over the weekend so couldn't get at the settings. Anyways:
vid: 1.1909
offset: + 0.050 (I suspect +0.045 will also work but went the 0.005 higher just in case)
vcore: 1.24 (When under load it swings from about 1.232 to 1.24)
I disabled PLL overvoltage but might try it later
Use LLC at the 50% setting (OC between 4.5 and 4.8 according to BIOS)
Oh, my PLL voltage is set to 1.799 (so basically 1.8) but that is automatically done by the board. I have tried lowering it but when I touch it I almost always get instability.
Other settings are as in the first post.

Nice temps, my temps hit high 80s when I stress-test and that's when I'm on 1.20vcore. I'm at 1.264 vcore right now and I was only able to stress-test when it was about 50F in my room!

Thank you! smile.gif
Then I might just stick to the 4.5 and try and adjust some of the other settings to see if I can't lower the voltages a bit.
I see my temps stay mostly under 80 even when folding but it has been kinda cold here the last few days so will have to see what it does when the warm weather comes.

Oh Well, I guess it's just my CPU then. It's way below average Ivy in terms of OC potential. I stopped at 1.32v on 4.5GHz and it still wasn't prime stable. I haven't tried going further with the voltage because it's just not worth it, plus the temps are getting really high (over 90C).

Swag...you da man!! I just read all 20 pages and followed everyone's success stories!!! I am so ready, but the best part is that I feel like you'll be there with me the whole time.

But before I get ahead of myself, one question. I got a hyper 212 evo running push/pull vertical to a top case fan running at 15 cfm higher than the push/pull and my temps are roughly 32 - 34 C at idle, not a nice 26-27 C. SO as I ask the obvious as you are already typing, maybe I'm just looking for validation because I really don't feel like taking it apart but probably need to... Do I re-seat the evo before I OC? I also thought I had a bad memory stick (was a DRAM voltage thing) so I ran a prime95 custom blend a while ago, but of course at stock 38x (you know auto turbo) and my temps were roughly 48-50 C.

thanks - so jacked up to do this!! guitar.gif

Sorry about the really late reply, I went to sleep right after school. It's was hell last week and crazy on the weekends. I don't think you'd need a reseat, I have an H100 now and my idle temps are 35C. I mean, idle = ambient dependent | load = more CPU-cooler dependent. Better CPU-coolers scale better and obviously lower CPU temps. If you are hitting 90C at stock, then I'd reseat, but from what you are saying, 50C is actually better than most I hear. My load temps on stock was with a Hyper 212 Evo and they were about 75C. Crazy and when I reseat, it got better. For you, it'd probably be worse.

Now on to the good stuff, have you fixed everything to the guide? Be sure you are using 1204 BIOS because it seems that provides stability and new features.

I'm not on a ROG board. I went with the standard flagship Z77-V, but I did update the BIOS just last week because they had similar reported better stability and features. I just think your ROG mobo hasn't had as many BIOS revisions, so mine is actually 1606. I'll be on tonight when I get home to start. Vcore and Offset to AUTO in BIOS to start? It seems like everyone is throwing that out on your guide and you are walking people thru finding a stable MANUAL Vcore first and then working Offset by using your Vcore and VID equation. Please let me know where to start after I input all the other settings. I would like to see 4.5GHz and I think I'd be satisfied for my needs.
thanks
