Asrock Z77 OC Formula Overclocking / troubleshooting/ Discussion - Page 34

post #331 of 1118
I change the ram freq. From auto to ddr2133 and it look 1066 on cpuz and computer gives blue screen error and restarts
post #332 of 1118
CPUz is actually supposed to say 1066.

For reasons someone else can better clear up for you, it says 1066, but it's really 1066 x 2 = 2133MHz.

Like, mine says 933 in CPUz, but its really 1866.


Are u sure the set voltage for the RAM is the voltage that it is supposed to be running at? (i.e. 1.5v when it should be 1.6v)

if it doesn't have enough voltage it will default back to a lower speed. I would manually enter the timing and double check dram voltage. By default this board has high vcssa and vtt so you should be good there. Are you overclocking anything else?
post #334 of 1118
I didn't touch anything else , so 1066 on cpuz was right , but today it start to work 667mhz again , ı change the bios settings to 1.3 performans and ddr2133 but nothing changed , dou you have any setting advice ? I will do it manualy , and my rams are 1.65 v Team vulcan brand 4x4

I'm a total n00b, I have very little experience overclocking.
Anyhow, all that is about to change now that I got some good money in the bank and I am about to blow $2,300 to $2,500 on a new gaming rig. I am going to buy a 3770K, and tinker with it on air cooling, and if I blow it, so what, I can afford another one. Like I said, I came into a lot of money, time for an awesome gaming rig.

Here's the thing, I got all my parts chosen, except for the motherboard.
It's a toss up between the OC Formula and the GIGABYTE GA-Z77X-UP7.
For about 10 days now I have not been able to make up my mind.

The thing I like about the Gigabyte:
1. BIOS switch. Just flip from your overclock BIOS to the default BIOS when you goof up your overclock so bad it won't POST.
2. Every USB port works on an independent fuse. Stick some cheap USB cable into the port, blow the port, and the other ports around it are fine.
3. Additional PCIE 3.0 slot.

The Things I like about the OC Formula:
1. 8 Layer PCB and 4 x 2oz copper. You know this thing is built to last!
2. Nick Shih OC BIOS profiles!
3. I've had nothing but good experiences with Asrock in the past. My first build was with a cheap $60 motherboard, it was an AM2/AM3 socket. Came with OC software, and for the first time ever I experienced the thrill of overclocking. I couldn't afford a case for that old rig, so the MoBo just sat there propped up on plastic soda bottle tops for years in a wet and damp basement. I had no air conditioning, so it got up to 83 F in that basement in the summer. That thing took so much punishment, and yet it never quit. Practically every other piece of equipment died, the monitor, my keyboard, 2 old hard drives, 1 floppy, 2 CD drives, a CPU fan. The way I abused my old computer was down right criminal, things like picking up a HDD while it was running, and setting it out of my way to set my dinner plate or whatever on the computer desk. if a $60 Asrock can be abused like that, imagine what this $240 MoBo can handle.
4. $160 cheaper than the Gigabyte
5. The most beautiful motherboard in computer history!!!

Seriously man, when your current OC Formula rig is old and can't keep up, you won't be throwing away the motherboard; you'll be mounting it to your wall like a priceless work of art. And your grand kids will point and ask what that thing on the wall is. And you get to explain that back in those days computers ran off what they called PCB circuit boards. And then they'll point to the Nick Shih signature and ask "Who is Nick Shih?" and you'll get to say "He's the reason I have a dozen tanks of liquid nitrogen laying around the house, never did beat his record."

Anyhow, the thing I am wondering about both he OC Formula and the Gigabyte is, can either one SLI 3 GTX-660's?
I'm aware that if possible, the OC Formula would make me SLI them in PCIE 2.0 mode, but I doubt that would bottle-neck the SLI performance. I am just wondering if it can do it. It says it supports 3 way CrossfireX, and Quad SLI, but it doesn't say it supports 3-way SLI. So I am wondering about that. Does anyone know?

You can run SLI but it will run slower obviously but it won't do too much damage to performance. I think its runs 8/8/8 when using SLI.

I decided to go for it. I just purchased it!!!
I am going to have so much fun with this board.

Also, I decided I'm most likely never going to run a 3-way SLI so it doesn't really matter anyhow.

You won't be disappointed! I've been through an Asus MIVE and an Asrock Fatal1ty Pro Gen3, and this board tops both of them as far as the actual motherboard. thumb.gif

you answered your own question. Manually set the voltage to 1.65 and enter all the timing manually. A spec sheet should have come with your memory. Reboot after setting it in bios and go directly back in to bios. it will let you know if it's running at that speed or if you need to make other adjustments. Let us know what happens and while your at it right down your cpu vtt, vcssa.

thank you , ı adjust manually but it still crashes
ı give timeing , voltage , and other things but there are many other things that ı dont know :S
