It may be a memory issue. Could explain my BSODs that I keep getting now and then. Windows memory diagnostic shows no issues with the ram. Heres a link to my kit thats installed right now.

I checked and I do have my CSTATES on auto and my C1E on enabled. I also have Intel Speedsteep enabled. My Core spped goes to 1608.44 or idle and 4423.98 on full use. I have it set to 50% LLC and my voltage is at 1.25.
Now here is the strange p[art..on CPU-Z, at idle my voltage reads 1.20v..then when I run OCCT stress test my voltage drops to 1.16...I'm wondering if CPU-Z has it backwards. My temps : Lowest core 52c and highest core was at 63. at idle Lowest is 25 highest is 34..I need to reseat my block and get better thermal paste and I think those will change.
Again C1E enabled, Cstates auto ( disabled is fine too) and EIST, i think thats speedstep ,enabled. I'm not sure about voltages but those worked for me as far as making my CPU down clock at idle. Goodluck Franco
Geekers, if you are going to get the MPower you can forget about the AMD cpu, you'll have to get Intel. The 3570k is a good processor. Also as far as a case goes, if you want fans look at the Azza 9000 or the Rosewill thor. the have fans, They are massive so it might be easy to work with , especillly having a bad hip...on the downside, they are massive..and might be hard to lift. But they are beautiful, roomy, highly customizable, and have fans included.

nop no luck, I noticed my voltage dropped down but frequency still at 3800 MHz. , This chip is supposed to be at 3400 MHz and 3800 MHz under load as long as is not overclocked. i cant make it go down to 1600 Mhz at idle.

im not sure if 0.998V will handle 3800 mhz??




I loaded default parameters, CStates auto, C1E enabled and the rest on auto, and still no luck, what is going on?

drip the ram to 1866 and run it at 1.5v..i think thats your problem! i just put in some other ram i had and got an a2 on my motherboard.so i think a0 has something to do with your ram..i tried to overclock it to 1.65 and i got the error..so i think that should solve it.and if that do work..just go buy some cheap vengance ram to test it..you could allways take it back if it dont work

what is your memory voltage set to? I was going to touch on this when we would chat. I think that its likely the root of the issue

Can you go into BIOS take as many screen captures as possible of your settings and zip them up for me to look at - CL3P20 should also be able to spot anything if you can send them to him as well. I just need to see what the issue might be as this may be something new to me unless I overlooked something

Can you both update to the latest Beta BIOS - and see if problems clear? H53 is latest

How do I over clock my ram on this board without affecting my timings?

**If your in windows with 'A0' its not RAM incompatability.. this would likely prevent POST. That is good news for you. If you are in Windows and getting BSOD with 'A0' showing 24/7.. i think it is RAM issue still. Leave timings to 'Auto' and see if issue returns... or try to increase voltage by +.2v ..

 

 I would suspect also that root issue is tRWRDD still set to 3 or 4 ... try 5 or 6 instead.wink.gif

Not sure what really your asking... 

 

if you want ram faster, incrementally - then adjust bclk

if you want ram faster, by the bunches - then increase ram divider

if you want specific timings - set them manually... then OC... this way mobo does not increase or loosen timings like 'tRFC' 'tRAS' and tertiary when you increase speed.

Can anyone point me at some USB 3.0 drivers that are compatible with Windows 8? I think that is the only thing I have left that needs a driver and I can't seem to find one.
post #648 of 3634
I have not touched the ram voltage at all. I have only adjusted the speed. As far as I know I have done nothing to the timings either. Initially it had me set at 1066 and there was no temp displayed there either I don't believe. I then tried turning the speed to 2000 with xmp off and it BSOD on boot. Set it to 1866 with xmp on aand no bsod so turned it to 2133 and no bsod on boot however about 30 minutes into gw2 it bsod on me and rebooted. I have not touched any voltages, just changed the speed. I really do hope to chat with one of you and get this sorted out. Not going to invest in my water cooling kit until all these issues are ironed out and I can start over clocking the CPU confident that my board/ memory issues are solved.

XMP profiles adjust the voltage for you. If you increased the speed beyond the XMP profile you will need to manually increase the voltage.

I have the same "issue". I just can't get it to downclock while in idle state. It does downvolt, just does not downclock....

When I did a fresh install of Windows 8, I ran CPU-Z and it was working; the CPU was dropping to 1.6GHz while it was in idle, but after I restarted my PC, it was stuck in 3.8 again. Now it's overclocked to 4.2, and it stays there.

Could this cause stability issues since the CPU has to run at at 4.2 with 0.9xx volts?

EDIT: this thread might help as well, he was having the same issue: http://www.overclock.net/t/1323459/my-3570k-is-possessed/0_30
