In other words, this guide will work perfectly for that mobo too, just the way AsRock names LLC is different, that's it basically. Funny part is, the AsRock board seems to negate the need to do certain steps that on the Asus seemed redundant. (They weren't, but appeared to be)

Here it's a bit more basic but all the necessary options are available. If ever your board dies and you need a cheap replacement, check it out. I'm actually quite impressed with this board as it was 129$ + 35$ mail in rebate. The features aren't rich, but it does what it advertises perfectly and feels a lot better than my Asus, in terms of build quality.

Can't really describe it, but the board just feels less flimsy. It might be psychological after the hell I went through with Asus crap.

Thanks again for all the help over the last many months, it turns out this guide has basically taught me everything I need to know about overclocking ivy, regardless of Asus motherboard.

This is a great general guide one could use even without an Asus mobo, but again I have to say a little common sense is obviously needed.

good man - glad to hear it the AS3 is well known for providing a good stable OC too.
Customer returns aren't great though - so I've heard.
Good price nevertheless!

MSI mpower z77 mb
2x4gb corsair vengeance pro 2133mhz (via xmp 1.3)
i7 3770k @ h90 watercooler corsair
3d club GTX 670 royal queen 2gb

right now i do pll @ 1.6v and 1.2v vcore and stable at 4.6ghz. Im not sure how to check wea faults. that was question 1. question 2 is, is this stable and possible? I could even run 4.8 ghz @ 1.29v vcore and temps didn't go over 82degrees
I disabled the common things that need to be off when overclocking, but most things are at auto
I run prime95 without errors or runners going to stop.. also burn test i succeed.
The reason I doubt things a bit (but didnt play for a while on pc) is because of stuttering in FPS while gaming for example Far cry 3 or crysis 3 at load points. But when standing still the fps is stable so its not like stuttering. just i notice well when there's the so called load point.

Check for WHEA errors via event viewer , open it go to application and service logs >Microsoft>windows>kernel WHEA errors .

On if it is stable, if it passes all BM for long time (prime95 , ITB etc) and not crashing in any games/app I say it stable enough for you (make sure no WHEA errors ).
Now it might be you try to do folding or video encoding (Handbrake) and then it craps out , you can try those if you like .

On your games stuttering , not sure on that . I would try lower back to stock and retry (make a profile of your OC first in bios if it supports so you can switch easy) and see if stuttering goes away .
Thats generally has more to do with vid card and settings/drivers most times .

I'll post this here as well.




Finally got to 5Ghz actually stable without any WHEA errors or anything.
This CPU refuses to run x50 multiplier for some reason.

She's delidded and lapped IHS with both IHS-Die and IHS-Block contacts made with CLU.

Cooled by a Swiftech H320 kit with 6 Noiseblocker XL-P PWM fans in push pull. On this result she's running at about 65% PWM speed.

This RAM also clocks like a dream lol. I have a 2800C11 kit of Avexir Core as well but the poor IMC refuses to run anything over 2400Mhz stable.
Even for this 2179Mhz 9-10-10-21-120-1T clock it needs 1.05v VCCSA (and the corresponding linked 1.15v VCCIO).

Still trying to get CL8 stable on 2179Mhz but there's errors all over the place even at 1.80v VDIMM and 1.10v VCCSA / 1.20v VCCIO.

Should I push even higher for 5.1Ghz or something? Plenty of room in the temps but i'm a bit worried of the voltage. I'm already at 1.448v and knowing how SB / IB scales it will probably take ~1.48-1.49v to get 5.1Ghz stable... Is that even remotely safe for a IB?

It is safe - and my god do u have good chips!
But I personally wouldn't go over that voltage for 24/7 use - think about it - what's the point?

Absolutely nothing lol.

The hardest load I put on it is either when producing music with FL Studio which is limited by my Xonars buffer memory, not the CPU, or BF4 which due to Mantle has a CPU load of just 60% ish max.

My chip is basically identical to that. I need 1.45v instead of 1.448 wink.gif I'm almost positive you'll need 1.55v for 5.1ghz just because for me anyways, the jump from 4.7 to 4.8 to 4.9 to 5.0 indicates it will. I can't remember but I believe 4.8 was 1.3v so.... 200mhz was already 0.15v more. To me that indicates I'd need at the very least 1.525 to hit 5.1ghz and not a 0.01 less. Plus realistically I'd even imagine it would require 1.55v. For the 100mhz, considering I'm stable with no degradation running 5ghz on offset for months... I'm not going to push further lol.

Like mentioned, there is not point other than epeen measuring. For sure it's fun for that purpose, but why not just set the voltage to 1.6v, post at 5.5ghz and verify using CPU-Z and call it a day then? wink.gif

question-

the recommended safe range on air is 1.3-1.45 right?
so this 1.45, is this before or after vdroop is involved?
like, 1.45 set in bios or setting a higher vcore in bios until you see numbers close to 1.45 on load as shown in CPU-Z? (after vdroop kicks in)

Recommended on air, is not to pass 95c lol - doesn't matter what voltage it is really.
As for 24/7 usage, I wouldn't go above 1.45v personally.

And this is without vdroop - thus without LLC "activated".

In other words: Your target is 1.45v in bios. In CPUZ you'll probably be UNDER 1.45v - but that doesn't mean you aren't loading the chip with 1.45v, it is just the way the voltage is being affected with load (dropping). So in other words, don't pass 1.45v in BIOS.

but what if my ultra LLC kicks my vcore in CPUZ over 1.45 even though my bios was manually set to the target 1.45 or lower? i.e; 1.44(safe) in bios but cpuz says 1.46(over) on load.

do the same guidelines still apply?
