I heard 1.3v is highest you want to go. My temps range from 70-90c water cooled.

Yep - that is why you will see many overclockers have multiples of the 3770Ks , and thats for binning... some can go higher on lower volts, some have very very strong IMCs, some have both ( biggrin.gif ), and others are not so lucky... the unlucky eventually find a home in a rig or a grave.

Mind you these are temps after running prime95 for 13hours, in games I never see it over 70. I may try reseating the cpu, technically the highest temp was 87c on one core while the highest on another is 78c.

temps after 13 hours under prime95

core0 29/78
core1 31/87
core2 32/86
core3 32/81

Do you all buy WINZIP to extract these BIOS files? I've had the free trial version for ages, but it will not let me use WINZIP anymore without buying.. How does everyone accomplish this?

Right mouse click on the zipped folder and Extract All. You really don't have to buy anything, it's included in Windows already.

Thanks gents...

I've tried both methods and end up in the same place. Don't these files need to be opened further before downloading to the flash drive??

Download the files, extract, copy the files to a USB drive, restart with the USB drive still plugged in, go to BIOS, go to Utilities, M Flash, Update Bios, follow the instructions on the screen, done!

BTW, Sorry for the noob questions. If I could get to the point where I'm comfortable with the entire BIOS flash procedure, I wouldn't be so nervous about it!
