And ofc, use that settings that alextheguy gave me..

AFAIK (and someone correct me if I'm wrong) the vdroop offset function only makes sense if you're using the auto setting for CPU voltage.

So you have two options:
- fixed CPU voltage;
- auto CPU voltage with appropriate vdroop offset setting (only if the auto voltage with 100% vdroop offset is enough for stability to begin with).

Not really sure how you can combine fixed voltage with vdroop offset to get what you want.

Maybe someone who has the board can confirm, I only played a bit with my friend's board, getting ready to buy mine one of these days for my IB upgrade.

I'm not sure what Vdroop actually does. But, I once saw an article saying that vdroop actually helps in overclocking of CPU. Try set your Vcore to auto and set the vdroop to auto/75%. Determine your vcore again during stress test. OC capability depends on your chip too.

Guys inquiring on the waterblock... I got an email today that it will only be in stock around April. That means you can pre-order now if you want. Mind that shipping is pretty expensive and they ship with DHL so tax and duties are harder to get around. Might be possible (with some convincing) to lower the shipping cost by using the official German post office.

^^I wish I had a friend here with the same board to share the shipping cost. I think I want one.

Well, I'm gonna give it some time and see if other brands decide to take on this. If LE ends up the only brand making a block, I'll probably get two of them by April or May. I really wish some brand make a block that goes all the way to the chipset in one piece.

Hmmm... I can't boot into windows with those "offset" settings... Little help??
post #2187 of 3633
Anyone running a decent overclock on an i7 3770k with this board? Right now I'm just using the overclock genie! Any suggestions would be awesome!

I had the Asus Pro equiv model
This MPower is running much smoother and overclocks easier

The vdroop offset is at the max 100% at default, lowering it increases the vdroop, so the cpu gets less voltage under load. To have the idle voltage & load voltage closer to each other best to leave it auto or 100%.

The board is very easy to overclock, just adjusting the cpu multi & vcore alone should be able to get the cpu as fast as the cooling will allow.
Memory setting depends on the memory, XMP with the board works pretty well though, with the kits I tried xmp on nothing got overvolted.
