not seeing where your DIGI-VRM or your LLC settings are.

Thanks I'll try that. Digi-VRM is on ASUS boards and LLC is located on the second last picture set at "turbo/level5"
my bad about the DIGI get them confused after a while and lately only have been on ASUS boards.
bring the LLC on medium or level 3..

edit:
bad part is I have a Gigabyte Z77 board but it has a different BIOS.
my 'test-bench' rig in my sig..

After tweaking the settings. Nothing different

my first 3570K did 4.4GHz @ 1.368V so I know how you feel.
in the end it comes down to the luck of the draw when getting CPU's, GPU's too for that matter.
my second 3570K does 4.4GHz @ 1.248V so I'm happy I switched.

how long have you had the CPU, in case I missed it.?
can you swap it for another one.?

I bought it from Tiger direct. It was like 2 months ago so essentially no. I didn't have time to attempt over clocking with school and stuff ha-ha. I could theoretically use the Intel tuning plan, but I would have to go as far as to pretty much killing my chip. Did you go and buy another one?

I sold mine on eBay and then bought another one.
sold it for a $15 loss overall in the end but it was well worth it.

bought it @ MC for $190 taxes out the door then sold on eBay for $190 shipped.
grabbed a newer batch on sale newegg for $200.
with eBay fees I lost about $15..

That's a good method. But MC is known for a lower price. I guess I'll leave it till one day it dies then I'll initiate the tuning plan tongue.gif

all places price match now and the 3570K will get a price cut once the i5-4670K (or whatever) arrives.
the tuning plan is a good idea from what I hear, I have to read more about it.

Ya, exactly. I rather just wait for the new chip to arrive then waste effort and time trying to either kill my current cpu, or sell it used and rebuy
