Yeah, I think itx is really cool, but I couldn't find an appropriate board for my needs...I had high hopes on the EVGA stinger but it wasn't as good as I expected it to be and clocks ram quite bad. The p8z77-i might be the best out there but it's pricey. That Asrock board might fit the bill for a gaming itx rig! I had no idea someone modded the bios...that's interesting, but I still think it would be vrm limited for higher overclocks.

I have the ASRock Z77E-ITX in a Prodigy I just put together for an emulator box a few weeks ago. Just waiting to delid my 3570K because I only have it on a 92mm air cooler since it's about all I could fit. I really love the Prodigy and I'm not expecting the board to hold me back (only going to be going for a 4.5-4.6Ghz OC anyway).

I'm currently on a Z77E-ITX sitting on 4.7GHz, heat limited smile.gif

Itx case? 4.7ghz is plenty though, even for a 2600k biggrin.gif
post #6126 of 33670
Yea 4.7ghz is plenty indeed. I myself won't even need that much, not when I'm using it strictly for emulation. The only games that even require me to OC at all are certain GC and Wii games. I still want to delid though so I can get my temps down. Have plenty of CLP might as well put it to use.

Yeah I heard Dolphin can be intensive cpu wise...You already delidded one, doubt the 3570k would go wrong.
You got Monster Hunter Tri? biggrin.gif

Yeah but I've got a few [fixable] issues prohibiting me from going further

The H100 currently has AS5 (applied like a pig). I have Indigo Extreme waiting to go on.

As well, my LLC is stuck at level 1 and overshoots the Vcore in BIOS by 0.05V ... At least during Prime95 it's more or less stable (temperature-wise) but during IBT load temps go from 60C to 90C, in part due to thermal throttling

PS I'll be running F@H so every mhz of CPU and RAM speed is required smile.gif Competitive nature of F@H is crazy

I use LLC level 2 on both my ASRock boards, I always stay away from level 1.

Yeah 90 for a Sandy quad is too hot man...something's not right with your tim application, block mount or your case is starving of airflow.
How much vcore for that?

EDIT: I won't ask...I got Monster Hunter 3 for the psp, and a host of other cool games too lol
Actually Monster Hunter Freedom Unite is the most challenging and the best game of the series. Give it a try!
