Asrock Z77 OC Formula Overclocking / troubleshooting/ Discussion - Page 32

post #311 of 1118
Glasseye, if you're concerned about temp issues using LLC 1 fixed VCore, you can easily use offset voltage and enabling enhanced halt state. Right now I am running LLC 2 with a +.03 offset with C1E enabled. It's nice because when I'm not under load the VCore usually hangs around low 1.0x and with offset voltage there isn't max current running through the CPU at all times which lowered my temps about 10°.

Maybe somebody can help me with what I think is probably a simple question with an easy answer. For the life of me I can't find an answer. I did a clean install of Windows 8 (actually an immediate upgrade to 8 from a clean install of 7). I downloaded and installed all available Windows 8 drivers from Asrock. However in the device manager it's showing that most of the system devices are using drivers from 2006. Mainly all the 7 Series/C216 chipsets. Where can I locate the most recent drivers for all these? Here is what Device Genius came up with.

Other ideas? Should I turn off thermal throttling? Seem to recall reading that some boards throttle when the temp gets low, too?
It could be possible that your chip has a wall at 5.4Ghz and it wont get any further without LN2.

Is there any problem with the Computer BSOD's etc? If not just leave it.

How did you get a compression fitting instead of using the barbs that were included?

Not at all. Normally I wouldn't care, but the current drivers are over 6 years old. Maybe I'm being too picky..........

do you guys use both of atx power connectors ( 4pin & 8pin ) or not - i use only 8pin and i wonder if this affects overclocking stability ?
