So this will be the summary till I get back in 10min. 1. Load Optimized defaults, Save exit. 2. You said you have an SSD and your getting the IDE error code.(could be BSOD reason). 3. Check your booting with AHCI, I know on my new z77-ud4 it is set default, but it wasn't on my z68. 4. I'm assuming your not using a stock cooler, If loading optimized defaults did not help, do these simple changes and take screenshot's but don't stress test it yet. The issue is most likely the bus speed is slowing things down, those settings look similar to what I've seen before on a gb board that went to base settings. So do this change in your bios under MIT/Advanced frequency/advanced cpu core change CPU Clock ratio to 40, disable c3/c6 power states on that page. The c3/c6 I can explain in detail later, it's an issue with GB boards and SSD's. Lastly make sure your booting in AHCI, if it's set at auto and your getting that code it must not be so on the safe side just set it to AHCI. Try those things and let me know the clock change should get your bus speed back on the right side of things, I just want to make sure it's working correctly before I can help you tune your voltages manually or get you back to stock with some manual changes to help stablaize you, if that's what you want.
Thanks, but I'm seeing no meaningful change. Any idea why my CPU isn't even drawing 60W most of the time? I'm thinking that I need to test my GPU out and make sure this isn't a PSU thing or some other issue...

Yea, I'm about 5min from home, so i can respond properly. That was one thing I noticed when I first saw your specs, however I couldn't look it up while I was driving, if it's a quality antec psu @550w it should be fine, especially w/o the cpu or gpu being overclocked. It's obviously better for you to have more overhead w/ a good 750+ watt psu, but if you have a quality 550w it can run that setup. I definitely think you should run a 3dmark or cinebench, sisoft or a few and see what your scoring. I just didn't want your core so low that it if it did get through it may not get the voltage it needs. Run those benchmarks or atleast another one and take a SS, is your PSU brand new and is it rated 80+ or higher? Those bench's, I usually use 3dmark and sisoft, they will also tell you how your ram bandwidth is, gpu, cpu etc... If you want a real bench, disable all the power saving setttings-C1E,EIST etc.. and raise your Core current limit and Turbo power to 250-300 on each. Then bench it. I had to do this crap w/ my board too it's such bs, but to get it optimal you have to adjust some stuff manually, vtt, pll, etc.. Disable power saving settings and change your power limits, try again and some other bench's to get a broader picture.

Yep, the PSU is rated 80+. I tried disabling pretty much every throttling feature I could find, and no matter what, I can't seem to get "expected" performance out of this. Almost universally I'm hearing that it should be in the 100's, so to get 40-ish is pathetic. I know it's wrong because my temps should be flaring way up, and my CPU should be drawing a lot more power. I don't know what to do next. I'll try 3dmark, but I'm not sure what that will prove other than that it's underperforming. I appreciate the help.

Here's the lowest burntest result I could find with an i7-3770k via Google:

OK, run cinebench please. If that shows something lower than like an 8 or 9, then we are in trouble. I am not so sure you have a CPU problem right now, which is why I would like to see a good CPU benchmark to be posted.

You are also going to want to update your BIOS to the latest version. thumb.gif

You can't go just by gigaflops, it depends on cpu setup (lowering overall cpu performance can increase gigaflops), & OS updates. At 5Ghz my cpu does 60 something GFlops, but in cinebench does as well or better than most at 5Ghz. Reading watts in software doesn't tell the whole story either, there is no software that can tell you the wattage accurately.

i ran cinebench on my new i7 3770k stock everything and got a score of 7.84 so see if you get close to that.

Alright guys, going to check out Cinebench then. Thanks for the replies, i really appreciate them. Will report back in just a sec.

Have you got SP1 installed for Windows 7? That will add AVX instructions which will pretty much double the Gigaflops. I had this problem too, but I wasn't getting the low voltage/that much of a low score. You might like to try disabling speedstep etc after you've checked you have SP1 and ran a cinebench run.

This. SP1 adds AVX instructions.

I don't have SP1 installed, but I'll install that now and give it a whirl. Even if my GFLops improve, I'm still confused about the instability at stock clocks (reported by burntest as well as one BSOD so far), and the low temps at 100% stress.

Edit:
I'm still at 4 GHz from my testing earlier, when SP1 finishes downloading I'll reboot and set everything to default
