1.25v got a ****ty processor just bad luck, won't run 4.2 unless its @ 1.25v. I know some people can get like 4.5 @ 1.25 but not me just a real bad OCing processor bad luck of the draw.

I have re-applied TIM many times this is as good as it will get. I do the line method on my 3770k.

Post your bios settings. Are you using a fixed voltage when doing your initial testing? It might be a bad memory module that is holding you back.

Have you done any stress testing like Prime95 and IBT at default MHz?

I have a hard time accepting that any Core i7-3770K is that bad of an overclocker so I am just wondering what else you have tried. Is this a new retail CPU?

Fixed Voltage. Yes I have stressed at default. I even upgraded my motherborad to a Sabertooth Z77. Tried it all same temps. The BIOS settings are just like any other OC's normal settings. Not new have had this comp since October 2012.

What are your LLC and PLL settings?

LLC is Ultra High

The only thing I see for PLL is CPU PLL Voltage which reads 1.816v set to auto

I also see Internal PLL overvoltage set to auto

If you want to know any other settings let me know would like to figure this out as well thumb.gif

There are few changes I would make.
They are all covered here:
http://www.overclock.net/t/1291703/ivy-bridge-overclocking-guide-asus-motherboards

Screen shots are included so you can compare all the settings to make sure you didn’t miss any. If you have any questions about that thread just post them there, and someone will help.

After following that guide, if you still need 1.25v for 4.2 I would exchange the chip if possible, or RMA it.

1.25 V for 4.2GHz is unfortunate... Mine does this with no additional voltage. Sorry bud

On the bright side, 70C is not bad for that voltage. Perhaps try pushing past 1.3 V and see how far that gets you. I've pushed up to 1.36 V and ran for a year with no problems. Another option would be to return it (If possible) or RMA.

its @ 4.3 now with 1.25v fine. I am going to keep it like this it runs perfectly fine I only use my comp for gami so I am good to go. I only got into OCing earlier this year to give it a shot = ). I would only RMA if it was not working properly and my comp was constantly BSOD but its not it works fine all around.
