It adjusts the TDP of the chip for long/short duration. If its set lower then the TDP will limit the power to the chip making it unable to sustain higher clocks. I don't recall the numbers at all and i'd probably be careful with those settings as well.

On a side note I used to run 4.2Ghz and it would downclock to 1.6ghz with Voltage going to about 0.9 on idle and up to 1.2v(ish) under load without having to mess with those settings at all. All I did was put core voltage to auto, and CPU ratio on the top of the "OC Settings" page to 42. I also left Vdroop to auto and pretty much everything else CPU related to auto.

I just looked over the manual and make sure that the "Overspeed Protection" is DISABLED as well...this is what the manual says:

OverSpeed Protection
Monitors current CPU draw as well as power consumption; if it exceeds a certain
level, the processor automatically reduces its clock speed. For overclocking, it is
recommended this feature is disabled.

It seems you were spot on. Knowing what to google for I have now set the long/short at 200/250 and the problem has gone. 1608 at idle and 4423 under stress with no fluctuation. Thank you so much thumb.gif

I need some help here. I've been wanting to upgrade my cpu cooler toward something more geared for oc'ing. it seems the only cooler I can find is a D14.is there any other high end coolers that will work on this board? I need something that will clear my ram also.

I'm looking at getting the Kraken X40 personally when I get some extra cash. I currently have a 212 EVO and it's been working just fine for now.

i have a haf xb case,so im really thinking over this clc thing. i already rma'ed one h100. i think i'm going to stick with air cooling for now. i was hoping for some other idea's other than the D14. i want to try one of the newer SA coolers,but they dont give enough info for me to take a chance on one.

what ever i decide has to clear my memory.i'll be ordering something before work in the morning.i guess i cant really go wrong with a D14.

Examples of this are video editing, compression, encoding, rendering etc. Also it may just be the placebo effect but I notice that my programs and opening stuff in Windows is a little faster...or rather my windows experience is "snappier" like I said there shouldn't be a difference with those functions in windows but thats just my opinion. Also I believe 3770K are binned better, but that can also be false because when it really comes down to it...its just luck. I got a much better 3770K than my 3570K when it comes to overclocking and im quite happy with it. Me and Ride can do some benchmarks I suppose at both 4.5Ghz but benchmarks are synthetic and in pure numbers the 3770K will most likely win if not all most of them.
Well i play a lot of guild wars 2 and that **** is eating the cpu like a madafaqa . I got 100 fps when nothing is happening but when i have more then 50 ppl on my screen then fps drops to 20-10 . My i5 3570 k is on 4.5ghz at 1.35V and i cN have more cpu power but the i5 isnt rly wwnna oc ..... I tryed 1.5V on 4.7 ghz and nothing . So i have a good mb but a **** cpu .

Good morning,

I'm sorry for the noobish question, but I've become real OCD about this computer and want to make sure I do everything right. With the GTX 770 and GTX 780 coming out at the end of the month, it really has me contemplating an upgrade. As such, it got me thinking and planning ahead: how the heck do I remove my old card? I was so excited when I put it all together that I didn't think to pay attention to how it went in. I've seen spring-loaded locks and the locks that slide back and forth over the end of the video card, but nothing like on this board. I'm a little weary because I've broken more than a couple PCI-e X16 locks, and wanted to make sure I knew how it works on the Mpower before I go breaking anything. I would love fancy pictures, but if not possible I appreciate any help. Thanks for helping a noob out!

EDIT: I looked at it last night, and it looks like you push on the lever from top to bottom towards the board, which in turn pops the card out of the slot. Is that accurate?
