I'm kinda sad because I have an NH-D14 and I want to push for like 4.8 but I don't want to have to use 1.5v and kill the CPU to get there.

I would feel wasted if I were you, but that's exactly what has driven me to sell mine, I'm soon to own a zalman lq series cooler (the one that causes the vREGs to overheat from extreme overclocks), now because of reaching out I have people asking me for hardware stuff, now my problem is keeping up with the demand of guys who want ivys. So I might be in a good position to try the lottery several times or just might as well just go after Haswell. My chip was bought on around 22nd Dec from tigerdirect and it is a 3237....B batch.

It is actually on offset yes. What I like about it is it idles very nicely at 1.6v and 0.8v but with manual its constantly at the vcore you set it in the first place. One bad thing about this is I have already tried that even with manual that bsod still shows up but much much later than in offset no matter what the setting, I can't get anything above 4.5Ghz to stick in prime no matter what. Am using the Z77X-D3H, there is a planned UD3H on the way just because it was used to LN2 overclock in tweaktown and got rediculous overclocks on the 3570k but I have also been looking the Asus way though but not sure because all my builds have been gigabyte all the way. What is your current mobo?

The one I have now (1.4v for 4.5) is a B batch.

B is for bad.

To increase my chances, I think I will go with an i7 this time since the funds will be there and lookout for a mobo offer, like last time

Im on the Z77X-UD3H, love this motherboard BIOS is easy to use and vcore is spot on what you set in bios is what you get in windows. I had an asrock extreme4 before and I had issues with that in that I could do say 4.6ghz at 1.30v do 30 mins prime95 then bsod, increase vcore to 1.305 and do 60mins prime 95, but then when I go to 1.31v I would get bsod after 5 mins prime95 or my pc just kept randomly locking up in windows or in bios and I had to clear the cmos to boot again.

Are you changing any other settings in bios? With my old sandy bridge I changed lots of settings but with ivy you only realistically need to set your RAM speed and voltage manually, then change cpu vcore and multiplier.

Are you saying that there is the high probability that it isn't really my chip, its the mobo? cause thats just about what am getting only that the bsod is the same all the way through but not as long primes as those for your Asrock. Thoukgh am not getting any lockups but would get random stuff has stopped working at 4.6Ghz
Everything else apart from vcore, chip multiplier, BCLK, ram voltage, LLC-turbo,Power-300w,current-200A, would be on auto.
The dreaded 0x0124 would still show up but at different time intervals depending on the setting in the bios.

I would say it is highly likely to be mobo if for instance you can do 4.5ghz at 1.30v but not even 1.45v gets you 4.6ghz. Where is llc setting in the gigabyte bios and have you changed bclk?

bclk was always locked at 100.02Mhz, but now I will be getting an Asus board with twice the power phase count together with much faster ram (1866Mhz) than before and an i7 at the top of the lid, hasn't arrived yet to start revving about.
I don't know why these days gigabyte don't seem to be the best overclocking motherboards anymore (my 2 experiences). These current ones feel rushed especially the bios stability is really wanting. The last best I heard and even experienced was the P35 generation, it consistently lived up to whatever you threw at it, presently it is a hit and miss

Got my 3570K 2 months ago and it's doing 4.5 @ 1.19 fixed. OC seems stable now for atleast 3 weeks without any bsod or WHEA error and p95 24hrs stable. ( its a D batch btw )
Temps are not passing 74c @ IBT with my Gelid Tranquilo Rev 2. though im considering to buy a corsair h100i, will the temp drop be noticeable alot?
