I would need a full day almost to swap, install OS,updates, programs and games. But I feel a bit better now about running an overclock for a couple years. I will keep you posted. It was $149 and I used a $20 coupon from the 3770k for $229 thread, so after 3.5% tax it was $134.. Same price as the extreme4 lol. Now to sell the extreme4.

Nice, MC is about 5.5 hours away from me, 11 hour round trip. My mom just happened to be passing by there so I had her grab me an Extreme6 and a new 3570K.

Nice stickg1 want to see results out of that smile.gif (I have the impression i am the only one with the cheap asrock Z77 in the forum lol though capable of 4.8GHz nevertheless)

When i switch motherboards i will need to move my chip. Will i need to redo the liquid pro between the die and the ihs? If i try to pick the chip up gently is there enough of a bond that it should stay in one piece?

Well I originally planned on building with the Extreme4 or Extreme6 because I have liked 1155 ASRock boards I have used in the past. Between the Z68X-UD3, Maximus IV Gene-Z68, P67 Sabertooth, and Extreme3 Gen3 Z68 I got to use the Ext3 Gen3 was by far my favorite. Funny story how I got to use all the boards but thats besides the point.

Anyway when it came time to buy my Ivy build it was Black Friday and the P8Z77-V PRO looked awesome on paper, and with combo deals, discounts, and rebates I could get it for $155 so I thought it was a better choice than the cheaper ASRocks. Well it has been nothing but a disappointment and it is really buggy. The sound chip has already died (i've had it for about 45 days or less), the CMOS clears itself randomly, and its a crapshoot as to whether its going to recognize my boot drive when I turn the machine on.

So I'm hoping to have a fresh start with a new chip and motherboard. Also I can then RMA my V PRO while I use the Extreme6. Once the pro gets back and I test it as fully functional again I will sell it to pay for my new purchases.

I'm wondering this too because I should probably order some new ULTRA or PRO now if I need to reapply.

I ran a pro3 with my 3770K for over 6 months @ 4.9 without a problem. Only reason I upgraded was because I was given a n amazon gift card wink.gif

Well i am a believer on Silicon Lottery rather then expensive mobos with lots of CPU Phases if you get a good cpu it will oc good, but if have a crappy one no matter the board it cant do magic thumb.gif

I totally agree. Pro3 had no issues at all. Board was rock solid for being only 89 dollars. Ivy doesnt eat a lot of power so super expensive boards arent needed for overclocking on air and water

True, the main thing you need to overclock really well is a great chip. Although, a mobo can be the limiting factor after you have a great chip.

For example,

A great 3770k that should be able to run 5.0 @ 1.35 stable can run at that speed/vcore on a higher end mobo, but if you put it in an ITX mobo, will it run the same? Probably not.

How many 3770ks can actually do that tho? 1%?
