You shouldnt need CPU Switching Freq @ 2x unless your pushing higher vcore.. like 1.5+v

 

.. the OCP expander may help with your OC, make sure to disable CPU Overspeed Protection in the CPU settings too though wink.gif

 

100% LLC is fine too.. just gonna heat up the power phases a bit more thats all.. If your aircooling, you may benefit from the lower in-case temps from using something like 70% instead.. so long as your vcore is stable and CPU doesnt BSOD on sudden load.. you should be fine. None of the above settings are wrong/bad for 24/7 use.. just they may be unwarranted; you can save a bit of electricity and heat by "tuning" them on a more 'as needed basis'.

Hi all,

Since i've updated my bios with 17.4 , included ME i've got this message when i run msi control center :"please replace ME version".

What does that mean?

thanks

Thank you for everything. I think I disabled overspeed protection in my heavy OC profile. what does OCP expander does? I know LLC eliminates vdroops. CPU switching freq for phase freq. I think.

I just RMA'd my motherboard, looking forward when I get my new one. Anyone else have issues? My 1st PCI-E slot was DOA. Board should be showing up tomorrow. I've had terrible luck with motherboards lately.

I've seen alot of people do RMA with Z77 chipset because of stated "dead PCI" slot.

If BIOS settings for GPU/IGPU are not set up right it will effect video out put.

I'm sure the RMA will fix the problem. Good luck.

Experimenting with Fujipoly Extreme thermal pad on my VRMS. A little sloppy looking because I cut it myself. Took some time to do this. It's the best thermal pad material I could find. Got it from Frozen.CPU.

Thickness is .5 mm





I think this is the specs on the thermal pad I am using.

I'm a bit concerned. I managed to get to a 4.5 oc with 1.25v, problem is, my processor doesn't downclock at idle. I have Speedstep on and it still stays at 4.5. My temps aren't to bad. my lowest core is at 29-30 and highest 40-41. I finally gave up and just went back to stock till I can figure out how to make it idle at low clock/voltage. Any suggestions?

the highest I've gotten on this 3570k is 4.8 at 1.45v..ran OCCT for about 4 hours and no issues..but then decided to run Firefox and the Fox kept crashing...figured it wasn't stable. Anyway, if anyone could help me with the correct settings to enable the down clocking it would be greatly appreciated.


wait.....due to the mobo not having an "offset" option does that mean my voltage/clock will stay the smae constantly?

OCP = Over Current Protection

 

 Used for monitoring amperage throughput of your mosfet stages..  Basically ; higher CPU speed = more current... and higher vcore = more current

**Increasing your OCP range will help to make sure that your OC is not being held back by the amperage settings/limitations of the CPU power phases.
