Do you guys think I'm having such a hard time overclocking because my memory (Corsair Vengeance Low-Profile DDR3 1600) isn't on the supported memory list for my AsRock Z77 Extreme4? My MOBO automatically sets it to DDR3 1333 so I have set it manually to DDR3 1600. Should I overclock it higher than 1600? Or should I let the MOBO underclock it to 1333? Or is that not a factor in overclocking a cpu?

Did you select the XMP profile?

I don't know what an XMP profile is? How do I select it?

So when I take my CPU out do I have to take the IHS off and clean all of the CLU off of it? Or could I just kind of see if any stuck to the heatsink and then kind of brush a little more on the spots missing on the IHS and go over the old CLU to make a nice layer again and just clean the heatsink? I'm just wondering because it's going to be a little scary cleaning the CLU off with the IHS on the PCB because the IHS is going to move around and it will be scary taking the IHS off and leaving the bare die open to the dangers of the world haha.
I would be interested to know how it turn out. I have two MVF boards and don't have any of the issues you have reported, so it will be nice to know if the board has something do with it. The only problem is the Asus bios bug, but a new version should be out soon. When you encounter the bug it only takes a few minutes to fix, so it is not a big deal, just annoying.

Just follow Swag's guide to overclock your chip with the MVF, it has everything you need. You shouldn't have any problems at all, but if you have any questions just post them in the guide and someone will help you with whatever you need.

CLU can be reused the same day, maybe the next, but not weeks later. It starts to harden, and you can see and feel the roughness of it when you pull off the heatsink after it has been there awhile. You can see in the pics I posted here what it looks like when it sets, but it can be cleaned off.

Taking off the IHS is no big deal, and you will need to do so for optimal results. Just be careful, and prepare like you would if you were going to delid. Cleaning CLU off the die is easy since it is not metal, but you may need some metal polish and a decent amount of time to clean it off the top and bottom of the IHS. Since you are going to use CLU again, you don't have too make it look perfect, you just have to make it perfectly smooth. You don't want bits of hardened CLU to prevent a match between the surfaces. Hope that helps.

Well I guess I've hit the top of my chip at 4.7 @ 1.375v. I've been all the way to 1.5 and can't get 4.8 stable. I am using the "turbo" method. Leaving the multiplier on auto and manually changing the voltage. I was hoping to get to 5.0. Just so I could get in the 5.0 club but, oh well. For my 24/7 I leave the cpu and voltage on auto and get to 4.4 stable @ 1.216v stable. Willing to listen to any suggestions on getting to 5.0.

It's in the overclocking menu. About half-way down. Right above where you select the RAM frequency. Select the XMP profile that is stored on your RAM and you can leave the rest of the RAM settings auto.

Thanks a lot! Very nice to see you post you have been a lot of help to me when I need it and I thank you for that. I feel like it has to be the MOBO that is making it so hard to OC my chip. I got all the way up to 1.503v (DMM) for 4.8Ghz and it is still not stable. 4.5Ghz only needs 1.25v (DMM) to be stable. I know that I don't have the best chip and I'm not going to hit 5Ghz just by replacing the MOBO, but I think it definetly will help.

What do you mean by the "BIOS bug"?

And yes I will replace the CLU. Sucks that they gave me a leaking syringe with mine I barely have any left now because half of it leaked out of it.

I emailed Cool labs and they said they would send me a new one and asked for my shipping information so I gave it to them, but they haven't emailed me back after that. Hopefully they are actually sending one out to me.

No problem. I honestly try to help when I can, so many here have helped me along the way. The Asus bios bug which I first encountered at the beginning of January, happens when you make a few too many changes in bios and cause instability while testing. I have had to deal with it over three chip overclocks, and while it is annoying it is easy to address.

One of the most common symptoms is making a change in bios to the multiplier or something else, and those changes not actually following through when getting to your desktop. When that happens, or any other unexplained strangeness going on with bios, you just reflash the same bios and you are good to go. You just make sure to export your saved profiles to a usb stick, so you can load them after the flash. Once you reach your stable oc and stop making changes, you don't see the bug anymore.

Asus has been working on a new bios to fix the bug for weeks, we are expecting it in the near future. That sucks about your CLU, hopefully they send it out soon.

Persosonally i think 1.45 @ a 4900 OC is where I'm set 24/7 but mine idles down to 1600 with a Vcore of 1.124 when no cpu demands are present.


My CPU goes back to 1600 when not used but V-core stays the same (1,38 for 4,7Ghz)

How do you do to make it idle dows ?

Damn so everytime you change the multiplier you have to re-flash the BIOS? That sucks! Be sure to let me know if they come out for a fix. Or is there somewhere that I can check to see if they came out with it?
