Prime version newest?

Ya, I'm using prime newest version. I guess all ivy bridge processors run pretty hot.

Hey guys registered right now but I've been browsing overclock.net forums for quite a while now anyway I just bought one i5 3570K and one MSI Z77 MPower and so far it seems I'm not able to do any overclocking at all...

I've already changed CPU ration on bios, I've already updated bios to latest version and whenever I boot my computer it boots at stock 34 core ratio, here's a screenshot



As you can see I've even set CPU voltage for 1.25v... Am I doing something wrong?

i use the bios to get the OC to stick. works for me.

Yeah i also used bios to OC but it doesn,t work in any way... keep in mind that OC genie works... so thats even more confusing...

hmmm sounds peculiar. did you try to flash the bios?

Slash, the first few times I had problems OCing as well. I narrowed it down to where I was setting my Overclocks. people seem to say that being in Standard mode/ Overclocking setting OC page is fine but I found that being in OC Genie II mode/ Overclocking setting OC was better for me. Take a look at the included pic and see if what I'm saying makes sense. OC Genie II mode at the top and Overclocking setting OC at the left. then under the My OC Genie Option do all you clock and voltage changes..F10 to save and it should stick.

Also..even though I have Control Center installed I do not use it to overclock.. i've found with all the other motherboards I'e used Asus to Gigabyte that overclocking in the Windows enviroment will never yeild, at least in my case, a successful or stable overclock. Its best to do it in the BIOS. Yes its a hassle to go back and forth but stability is the pay-off. I've also heard of OS corruption when OCing is done through Windows.

Another issue I ran into which ultimatly forced me to reinstall windows was that after i had used Control Center to OC there was nothing I could do to reset the OC. NOTHING. I tried resetting to default in OS and in Bios, un installing Control Center, even clearing my CMOS...now all I use Control Center for is comparison and reference and also as software based fan controlling.


BladeMaster, have you tried different forms of testing stability. to be frank IBT and Linpack stress tests aren't real world tests. yes its a good way to test stability but are you doing anything that would cause that much "stress" to your memory and cpu.

I so agree with you though, i am hard pressed to find a 3770k that can't hit 4.5. Especially with the amount of voltage you are pumping into your cpu. Vdroop issue perhaps?

I find it easier to get max oc's with control center, harder to boot at higher frequencies....just make sure you increase vcore slowly.

Well, folding (GROMACS) is more intensive than linpack. Especially since some units take 20-30hrs to finish. Also I render so I don't want the OC to fail on me and I need every clock cycle I can gather tongue.gif

Thanks for the info btw wink.gif

You can create a RAID 1 array on that storage drive without a problem hence the OS is not stored there. The Intel SRT create an array option should make things easier for you rather than going into the Windows startup process.

Sorry, I missed up the OS on SSD part on your first post. biggrin.gif

Hey Cheaptrick, I can't get the RAID1 to work. If I change the SATA mode in bios to RAID, then during boot, configure the two 1 TB drives in RAID 1, I get stuck in a boot loop over and over and over.

If I delete the RAID, it boots up fine.

I am guessing that I must install the RAID1 prior to installing the OS, etc. Guess I know what I'll be doing this weekend.......
