After reading about your troubles I got scared that maybe I was just lucky with my mem and the first board.

I settled on an overclock of 4.7 Ghz, and after extensive testing found that I had to run a vcore offset of +0.55. Anything below that and Prime95 would eventually fail (although it took a long time, over a day). At that speed and offset my vcore tops out at 1.4v. I should mention that this is with Load Line Calibration setting on 2.

It seems like 4.7 is the sweet spot for me. From 4.8 and on I really have to ramp up the voltages for stability.

Hi, this 3d seems dead already smile.gif
I'm ok right now with a new cpu (3770K) although the other one was good too (sent in RMA at Intel for a "crappy IMC" and they believed me) and with a new ram kit as well, the Geil Evo Corsa 2133, cl 10-11-11 1.5v (2x4Gb).
Between the two 3770K I used to test for quite a while my system (with the RipjawsX) with a 2600K and strangely worked well at 4.6Ghz and even more, however I was having issues at 4.8ghz

Nope, the RipjawsX won't do their Xmp @2133 job with my new 3770K either and i sent them for testing purposes at a friend with another OC Formula, he simply had the very same errors like I had.
If you have the time and wanna read the whole story at the G.Skill forum, here's my discussion:

http://www.gskill.us/forum/showthread.php?t=12973

No one knew how to give me some tips, because they simply don't exist
A Z77 OC Formula, those 2133 RipjawsX and a 3770K it's a bad combination.

Look at my system now with the Geils running at 10-11-10-25-1T @1.5v wink.gif

You would like to know where those G'Skill ended? My friend got them, on a Gigabyte Z77Z-UP5 are running smooth and nice smile.gif
They're history for me though

Hi All.

I knew that I had somewhere Team DDR3 2000 CL9 4gb 2x2gb Kit.

And I decided to give it a try.

The results are just amazing - I do not remember what are the chips inside those sticks - if memory does not trick me they should be samsung chips - I read somewhere about them - may be at Xtremesystems forums - anyway - I could do 2400 with stock voltages and anything else Auto.
Check out the printscreen:



I have never ever had 39400 score in Mem Tweak It.

Nice score, those Team worked great, now they're outperformed by the higher density and therefore 8gb of ram (2x4gb, at least), 4gb are definitely not enough for a modern pc / rig.
Nice cpu as well, mine won't get 100% stable at 4.6 with less than 1.2v thumb.gif
Delidded? Watercooled?

Hi

No Cpu is not dellidded But yes its on WC rig.

In fact I am keeping it at offset -.20 and any other cpu stress program but Intel Burn Test - I get a Load Vcore at about 1.120v.


I can run it 4800Mhz at 1.215 In Bios Buit temps are a bit on a warm side: I get about 75-79 On all cores when running Linx - So I keep It cool and safe at 4600Mhz.

This is because the AsRock Z77 series boards all report the VCore wrong, it is actually higher/much higher than you see with CPU-Z or BIOS.

Hi guys, long term overclocker but noob to this Forum - 3 questions for your thoughts please.

Bough the Z77 OCF and associated parts for a new rig just over one year ago, been very ill since then and just starting the build now.

Basic config:
- Z77 OCF, i7 3770K, Win 7 64pro, 4x 4GB G.Skill Ares F3-2133C9Q (CL 9-10-11-28 1.65v)
- Fractal Define R4 fully fanned up (yep an ATX case, but the Z77 OCF fits just fine)
- Xigma Dark Knight Stealth, push/pull
- 2x Gigabyte Winforce 670 GTX OC 2GB Sli (building with 1 card initially)
- Samsung 128GB Pro SSD (system), Samsung 250GB EVO SSD (main games), 3x Seagate 3TB 7200 HDDs (data/movies etc), plus 2 or 3 older HDDs
- Seasonic 650w Gold PSU (SG12G -new, but temporary and for initial build only. I will use my Corsair HX1000 from my old rig once new rig is up and running)
- Samsung SH-224BB/BEBS SATA internal DVD±RW Drive
- Auzen XFi Forte PCIe (maybe, I will use on-board sound if it sounds OK)
- etc etc

First and main question:
When I hook up the Seasonic PSU to power the mobo outside the case to check for DOA (using the main power cable plus either the 8 pin, or the main cable plus the 4 pin, and turn the PSU on, I get no lights or activity on the mobo, nothing - (CPU, heatsink and RAM are installed, but no other cables connected except PSU and CPU fan cables are plugged into the mobo)

PSU is fine, checked with a few other mobos and they light up as soon as PSU is switched on.

What I want to avoid is full disassembly and reassembly if the mobo is actually dead. Part of my illness is a very weak arm/hand and assembly is damn painful, particularly for any fine work like the case cables to the headers etc. so pulling it apart will be a major PITA for me.

All the mobos I have used to build rigs over many years have had at least one LED or error code which come on as soon as power hits the board in the same situation to that I am using here.

So, I am looking at a possible DOA here, or does this board not demonstrate that it is alive until more cables and gear are plugged in?
Alternatively, is there another easy test I can do to check for DOA before in-case assembly (except using the HX1000 because I can't knock the old PC down yet - it is keeping me on the 'Net needed for work.

Maybe there is also a press-button or switch on the mobo I should be pressing to make something happen??

Second question:
Assuming it is not dead, should I upgrade to the latest mobo firmware or just let it run as purchased early 2013 and do all that later.

Third Question:
Any issues installing Win 7 direct from DVD in optical drive to Samsung 128 EVO Pro as the only connected drive? I have read of more than a few people having issues with that.

Cheers and thanks in advance, impressive thread and advice very much appreciated thumb.gif

Have you tried pressing the power button located on the motherboard?
post #1070 of 1119
Hi Alexei,

No! and of course it's working now. I didn't want to touch anything because it had been sitting for so long in the box. I thought that there might be some sort of indication power was getting through before powering up with that button. Over cautious I guess.

Thanks very much for reply.

Which BIOS upgrade to you recommend? I will overclock later but not looking for anything above about 4.2/4.3 I guess. My days of searching for 4.9/5.0 with water etc are long gone. Just looking for stability and a mid-range OC later. The Z77 OCF looks a nice piece of kit. Looking forward to playing with it.

Cheers & thanks again
