Some Issues with "Turbo" - i7-3770K

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
Hey!

I've got the Asrock Z77 Pro3 motherboard and the i7-3770K CPU.

When I enable Asrocks Advanced Turbo 30 feature in the BIOS (Pushes right up to 4.7Ghz and varies between 1.6Ghz - 4.7Ghz) I get a ton of BSODs. However, this only really started to happen after I installed my new Asus GTX560 DCU. Before I installed that, it used to run pretty fine on the Advanced Turbo 30 mode, I may have got one or 2 BSODs here or there if I remember correctly but having it enabled since installing the new GPU, it's BSOD heaven.

Most of the BSODs return nvidia issues, intel issues and some others, can't remember exactly.

Does anyone have an idea of what might be going on?

Thanks.

Sounds like a power supply issue to me. Your sig rig just says "Xigmatec" for the power supply. How many watts is it?

Nvidia related BSOD's might point to a driver or hardware problem. First, lets make sure the power supply is not a issue before we go down that road.

Ya, OC'ing 3770k to 4.7ghz, running 560 DCU def pushes a PSU, esp a crappy one. BTW are you running air cooling at 4.7??

i see your using artic cooler..thats prob why your getting bsods. your oc'ing 3770k to 4.7ghz and running a subpar air cooled solution. have you checked temps with realtemp?

the combo of subpar PSU with most likely 90-100"C temps with cpu are whats killing it. at least when you have high cpu usage for cpu

What voltage is your CPU running at? At 4.7 GHz, with a Sandy Bridge you should be between 1.35 - 1.45 Volts or you will have stability issues. I think the same voltage rules applies to Ivy bridge.

Air cooling but plenty of it. Voltage varies, I'm guessing with Intel Speedstep.

Can you recommend a good modular PSU?

Actually, CPU sits at around 60-80c when priming at 100% @ 4.7GHz

STOP!!

Lets not just replace the PSU because we "think" it might be a PSU issue. The Xigmatec 750 Watts PSU is fine for your application. I honestly feel the problem is somewhere else. We need more tests before we go buying.

60-80c is a perfectly safe temperature, so his temperature is not the cause of his blue screens.

Improper voltage is a very common cause of blue screen while overclocking. Lets try a experiment, shall we?

Go into the BIOS and manually lock your processor voltage while overclocking. See if the problem goes away. Often times, the "automatic" voltage adjustment messes things up, causing blue screens. Be very careful with this, and now your processor may produce more heat. Also, never go above 1.45 volts regardless of your temperatures. For example, for me to get 4.8 GHz, I need 1.431 volts. thumb.gif

exactly lol i never said he needs new psu, said might be the culprit. actually derped again and didnt look in sigrig for PSU. assumed he meant a generic local computer repair shop PSU from bin. xigmatac's get pretty good reviews

also, i was just going to say voltage spikes cause by the auto V, because those temps actually look very nice for air cooling

try something like cpu-z to moniter voltage

Derp for double post
