Thanks for the help smile.gif

Yeah it will drop 20 = 25c.. Lapp this IHS for better results 800 --> 1500 > 2500 grit sand paper and water.

Use the Liquid pro or IC diamond on the IHS between Heatsink for best results.


Also it is not your temps that scare me it is your V core i have never seen that much V-Core needed for a mere 4.6ghz heck i can do that with 1.19V So are you sure you really need all those volts?

thanks for input on type of mem kit used.
yeah, hehe, I had to re-install Win7 3 weeks ago, because I corrupted it too from too many BSODs while overclocking CPU and RAM (my mem sticks are rated at 2000MHz @ 1.65V) wink.gif ... however software corruption can easily get fixed (re-install) while vcore degradation is permament. any chances you could try checking stability of any "low" overclock that was used in past (e.g. 1-2 months ago) and see if it still runs stable at same vcore as in past?
thanks on your input on memory kit used. I use my 1.65V RAM either with 2x4GB @ 2400MHz or 4x4GB at 2200MHz. however I do not see any kind of IMC degradation ever, just the vcore needs to get upped for same CPU core stability versus value from the past.
for now I came up with a 1600MHz speed & stable timings @ 1.50V for my mem kit (9-11-9-24) and will use it this way, just to rule out possible (not really probable though) impact of running 1.65V memory. I will keep my CPU at 4.6GHz at 90C max (stock intel TIM under IHS) and observe ... if I need to use 1 more notch on vcore to re-gain stability within a week of running a safe clock and specs then it will be an RMA time instead of deliding...

Man, if you're gonna waste that awesome ram kit like that I'll trade you mine, 1.35v Samsung Green 2x4gb kit and some bucks lol

vcore degradation is however something that worries me, as my former 3770K degraded vcore severely within only 8 weeks (killed it off eventually and RMA'ed) and it never went above 4.8GHz stable and was run at 4.6-4.7GHz daily 24/7 using fixed voltage however (was using and EVGA z77 FTW board back then, it doesn't support offsets) ...

QFT

I'd suspect of that mobo btw...sounds fishy.

post a cpu-z pic and we can help you out.....yeah those volts...are what I used for a 5.3 Ghz run.....don't put that in any more. Do this let your mobo auto clock you up and see how high it gets then look at the vcore. Ands theres no way you could go down in temps with higher vcore its impossible, not trying to sound mean but the more vcore the more heat.

What motherboard are you using? Something is buggy...

I will update you on my results after and I had a type. I am at 1.265 volts not 1.60 volts. LOL

That's much better.. thumb.gif
post #817 of 33574
afternoon ladies and gents.
I plan on joining you real soon, this evening in-fact...
pics and temps to come.
cheers.

3570K for the win...
if in the US and live near Microcenter or Fry's they have in-store only deals and you can get the CPU and/or CPU + mobo combo for less than anywhere else.
plus they price match.

i5-3570K @ $195.74 out the door..

Updates: I couldn't fix the bent pins, so I contacted local RMA dept, and they said I can pay them a visit board in hand and they'll fix it for me. Not covered under warranty though, so I guess I'll have to pay a bit.

well hopefully its not too expensive to fix. but probably better then buying a whole new board. The risks we take in the name of performance...
post #820 of 33574
Yeah, I bet it won't be too expensive. I truly with they can repair it, it would suck to have such an expensive brick! It would also leave me without a pc for a while...I'll have to buy a Maximus V Gene soon I suppose. Hopefully I can resell this board soon, if it works...
