I had that issue twice in my lifetime and once it was PSU and another time it was a motherboard issue. Sorry for the vague answer but I would try to switch out the PSU first and see if that works.

Well after I explained to her what those things were, she asked where it (Micro Center) was and it just so happens to be on the way of where she is going and she has seen the building before!! So she agreed to pick me up a chip and CPU and it will run me only $300!!!! So I pre-ordered and have it all ready for her to pick up on Sunday!

Hopefully I get a much better chip than this first one that needs 1.41v for 4.5GHz and I can RMA this faulty ASUS P8Z77-V Pro...

Good job! Now ask her if she could buy me a 3770k and some new SSDs. tongue.gif

Sick! I'm going to MC tomorrow myself, glad you're able to take advantage of their great deals thumb.gif.

Sorry if someone already helped but this shows where to test vcore...

Good luck man! That board seems pretty decent.

I think it's most likely the psu, Tt units tend to suck (save for a few Toughpower XT units)
I normally skip Tt products myself tongue.gif
Doubt it's the board, but perhaps you can try flashing another bios, the beta bioses found at kingpincooling.com are the best.

A friend lives pretty close to the one in Richardson. So I can get cheap stuff too...got my MVG there with the discount, and he got a 3570k with the combo lol

no problem, as something to consider.... for my board, at idle software to digital multimeter was dead on. as the I overclocked higher and used more vcore the more "off" the software voltage became.

From that link you posted, it looks like I'd need to take my motherboard out to make contact with those pins on the back end of it. Is this the case? I don't see any other way I'm going to get to those contacts.

EDIT: I'm an idiot forgetting I can access that part of the motherboard by taking the ride side of my case off rolleyes.gif.

So am I grounding the black probe and then touching one of the metal tips with the red to test the voltage while the CPU is on load or as it says in that link you gave me touching one of the metal tips with the black probe and touching it's pair with the red?

You mean ground? You can use whatever gnd contact you like really...I have 0 experience with the likes of the Extreme 4 though. All my z77 mobos were idiot proof rolleyes.gif

Awww hell Stick, have your Mom pick up a 3770k for me too. I'm 3 hours away (6 hrs. round trip) from a MC....


Delid ver. 2.0








I'm seriously not going through all the trouble of draining my loop, taking everything apart, reassembling & refilling, testing, and then taking it back apart again to delid. Keep your fingers crossed that this ones a decent overclocker mates. biggrin.gif
