i5 3570k Oc help Please and thank you:)

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hello. Well it seems I made a mistake. I thought I got a good deal on a MB CPU combo. The i5 3570k and a z77-g41 for 250 new. Well now that i have it, i see i made the mistake first that it isnt SLI, which i plan on using 2 660tis, and 2 I want to over clock it to 5ghz, or atleast try. I find out you cant control the voltage with the g41. I have a water cooler custom loop, with a 2 gallon per min pump, a dual 120mm radiator with 4 fans. I am so confused lol, I dont know which mother board to buy now. In the past I have got a qx6700 to 3.6 with 1.575 volts running under 65c, with my water cooler. But it was simple with the 750i FTW, voltage control was just type in the number. Now theres off set and a whole bunch of other things with the i5. I have that z77-g41 back on ebay, for 70, and i can add around 30, I dont mind used. So which mother board should i get for around 100, that will be able to get this to 5ghz. I understand that may not be possible, because of a lot of reasons. I just want to have a chance to do it. I now know the g41 will never get 5 ghz even if i got lucky and got a good i5. So I need help this time lol. Thank you so much for reading, and I am going to keep searching. But from my search not all z77 are the same i see lol.

I dont need pci e 3.0 or sata 3, my hard drive is a 1 tb 7200k WD. The only features I need is manual control of all the settings in the bios, for voltage and things of that nature. With a sli that can atleast do 8x 8x. Atleast that is my understanding, 2 660tis will not need 3.0 pcie, because they cant even use the bandwidth of a 2.0. A 7200k hard drive, cant use the bandwidth of a sata 2. I dont really want a on board video card, because i dont see a point in it, I cant do anything with a on board video card other then browse the internet. Which i have plenty of back up internet browsers if my computer dies.

For depth in OC settings you really can't go wrong with Asus mobos. Their BIOS is extremely granular, you can adjust pretty much every single setting/voltage/timing that you can think of, and then some.

I'm can run my 3570k at 4.6 with about 1.28V under a Corsair H100 on a Asus ROG MVG board. From what I've read the ROG boards do tend to handle high overclocks better than the standard Asus boards

If De-lidding is this http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/showthread.php?t=173130. Meaning taking that cap off. I am fine with doing that if it does what he is saying. That is a big drop in temps. I will study how to do it, and do it. But need a board to be able to do it. So asus is good. THank you guys so much. Never head of de lidding. I kinda assumed you could, based on a 20 min video i watched on how they make them. If that really is the case I am confused on why they even put the lid on there.

Any one got a good link to a de lidding video. I see a guy putting it in a vice, and putting a block of wood to the cap. And hitting it with a hammer, this doesnt seem like a good idea to me?
