Cannot put multiplier past 39 on i7 3770k

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,
I ran across a problem about a week ago, hope someone can help me.
I had built my new computer, and was overclocking. I got to 4.5 before the computer froze and didn't wanna turn on. No problem, I reset the CMOS on the motherboard by moving the jumper. However I have now found in the UEFI bios that I cannot put the multiplier past 39, as if it doesn't recognize the chip as a K series with an unlocked multiplier anymore!
I tried resetting cmos again, restoring UEFI defaults, updating bios, but nothing worked
The motherboard is an Asrock Extreme4.
Hope someone can help me get out of this pickle. I am happy with 3.9ghz for the moment since it seems to run most programs very well, hoever I would like to have it at 4.2 or 4.3 smile.gif

Regards
Misha

Does it only go to 35 now? Do you still have overclocking settings? I think I have the same problem on my asus.

No, I can still put it to 39, but no higher. I can get you my overclocking settings if it would help.

39x would be the boost multiplier on your chip... I guess there's a link with that. I believe non-K chips can also only get to stock multiplier + 4 which would also be 39x. Is your chip still recognized as a K-series chip?

Yes in the UEFI it still says i7 3770K
On the overclocking tab i've got the multiplier on 39, however it says 'target CPU turbo speed- 3900mhz', so it must be something to do with turbo boost

Of course it says 3900mhz because the multiplier is set at 39. Try actually typing the number if you want it at 4.3ghz, make sure you highlight each tubro core, and type in the number 43 manually from the keyboard(keypad doesn't work I believe). Use the arrow keys to navigate to each turbo core.

If I type in any numbe above 39 it simply resets it back to 39 automatically. Before the CMOS reset I had a setting called 'per core' which allowed me to select each individual core. I can't seem to do that anymore though, strange. I'll see what else I can do

Post a screenshot of your CPU settings BIOS page.

Here, sorry for the blurriness of the first one, can be read though.

Hmm, you should be able to just change the 39 and have it stick - have you tried rolling back to an older driver? Or clearing the CMOS while also taking out the battery (kind of a last ditch thing though)? Have you looked at this thread?
