Gigabyte Up7 Overclocking Bloopers.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Ok I got my board and all my other parts built a 650 dollar water loop and get done with the build and decide to see what this new board with a 17 3770k can do with some overclocking. Not familiar with Gigabyte Bios I look at Sins guide to get a grasp of the names of different features. Well get that all taken care of so I am going to shoot for 4.8 ghz at 1.355v I set it in Bios and boot it boots fine off to CPUZ AND PRIME95 AND REALTEMP to see if Iam stable strart prime and my cpu only goes to 1600mhz now I thought my games were installing slow and the computer was not responsive as I would of liked so back to Bios and make sure turbo is on check so I decided to try manual 48 on the tubo. Back to the desktop and still 1600-1656 Now I am stumped and start reading manual about power settings and what not nothing. So back to windows to look and see if power plan is doing something with the processor its not. Now by this time I am forum hoping like mad to ashamed to come here and yell help. I remember the ln2 switch I look at the manual and see the relation of the swich matches my board as off so it must not be the problem. Well long story short it was the problem 2hrs later after trying different Bios and what not I get pissed and flip the LN2 swich while CPUZ is up and running boom shots up to 2200mhz so I TURN ON PRIME 95 BOOM 4800MHZ and I feel retarded. But happy that my temps are in the 60=67c range 2 hours in my water is working.. anyways dont always trust the manual diagram of switches.

Thanks for your time please share some of your Darwin moments so I dont feel so bad.
