3570k + Z77 Pro4

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

I bought the combo yesterday from MC and I am very satisfied with the CPU

However, I've seen people overclock the CPU to 4.5Ghz using 1.2V

I'm at 4.3Ghz and 1.2V, my temp is hovering around 65.

Question is, how can I manually adjust the voltage in the UEFI? It seems to only have Auto and Offset mode.

Offset is currently at +0.005

Thanks

You can add to and remove from the offset. This will add/remove from any voltage the chip experiences.

LOOOL. 4.5 ghz@1.2v? thats like 1 in 10,000!!! Lol show me 4.5 ghz@1.2v please. it usually takes 1.3v for an average chip@4.5 ghz.

Can you list steps to OC? i got the same motherboard, but a 2500k.

Easy

Offset +.005

Turbo +.004

Multi 43

Pass Prime

lol

Idk, I may try 4.5 tomorrow

Not exactly, I'm stable at those speeds and volts.

Isn't there a VCore voltage with a fixed mode option in your pro4 ?

did you disable anything? like C1E, C3, C6, package C stats, or Intel SpeedStep technology?

I don't want to be mean, but you should really exchange your Pro4 for an Asus P8Z77-V LK at microcenter. They will allow you to do it, and there are no questions asked (or they might ask, but under their policy, it's no questions asked, obviously I'm sure the guy will be like 'oh no bro what happened im so sad for you' kind of thing). Pro4 is okay for it's price for a budget board but given Microcenter's sales, you'd be insane not to get the P8Z77-V LK if you are going for a cheaper board (and frankly, if I were to buy a motherboard from today's MC specials, I'd go for the LK at $59 over the UD3H at $90+ anyways).

They are both the same price, so it'll be as simple as just giving them your pro4 and them giving you the LK.

. The LK is a full featured board, whereas the Pro4 is gimpled. It's not gimped too badly, but as you are finding out rudely right now, it does not have manual voltage control. Now manual voltage control really isn't necessary for a 24/7 overclock, even an extreme 24/7 overclock that pushes very high volts, as you WANT to use offset voltage control, that way, unlike manual voltage, your CPU downvolts and downclocks during low load.

Also, the Pro3 does not have SLI (not that SLI matters for 99% of us, but that's a big feature that separates budget and mid-range), and has a much lower quality VRM (90% of what a motherboard is and how good it is, is it's CPU VRM) whereas the LK has a pretty decent VRM (second to the Gigabyte range of boards). There's also a few other ways the Asus LK is better - support, the PCB is more solid and there's an overall much better build quality, ports....

What most people do though, is find their max overclock using the more stable manual voltage, to find the limits of their chip, and then they use offset voltage and test again to make sure it's stable. Usually you need to use just a bit more offset voltage than needed for manual voltage control, and it's a bit more complicated because it changes based on your frequency. So once you find the frequency you max out at, you set offset so you only have to do the testing and guessing one time around.

The LK is a pretty good board, but at $59 it's amazing. It's definitely a tier above the LK. It would be like going in and exchanging an i3 for an i5 for no cost at all.

And not to mention resale value. You pay nothing to get an LK over your Pro4 but in a year, or in a week, whatever, if you sell your computer, it'll be worth about $50+ more with the LK instead of the Pro4. Personally I build my computer and in 3 months I throw it on craigslist and sell it and do it all over again, computer components are like cash, they are fungible, and it's sort of an investment.... just a perspective, that's all.

I know that was long. To answer your question, there is no manual voltage control in the Pro4.

As shown here:
http://www.overclock.net/t/1354973/list-of-motherboards-by-overclocking-options/0_100

You see that the Pro4 is gimped (darn you asrock and Big Motherboard!). You have to buy the Extreme4, Asus P8Z77-V LK, Gigabyte Z77X-UD3H, any biostar motherboard, all MSi boards except the G41, for manual voltage control, going by the cheapest board by brand that is full featured and has manual voltage control as well as the other overclocking options that are important but often left out (ram voltage, pwm control, LLC, pll control, voltages for imc/vtt/gfx, etc).
