So far I'm happy now but I'd like to see if I could push 4.7 or even 4.8 (delided).

I'm rock solid @ 1.165v @ 4.2Ghz. It's weird.

I can't push it any higher though. The heat is too much to keep it stable.

But why you want that big frequency ?

The 4.6 GHz Haswell = 5.08 GHz Ivy Bridge ( if true, a haswell is 10% faster than a ivy )

Anyway, nice work !!

Cosmetically better lol? I hoping for any speed boost in memory speeds for future bios updates otherwise I'm sticking with F5 for now.

I completely skipped F5. But F6D is must faster and more stable (compared to f3).

 

So, audio update : I contacted Gigabyte and their technical support was very helpful. I'm still having the problem, but my phone number and email were recorded. The problem will be sent to their "testing department" and I will be contacted with the results.

Hi,

So what is the bottom line of this MB?a "buy" or not?:-) I'm considering this one (and not the gigabyte OC) or one of the ASUS top ones, such as the deluxe/dual or WS (or even ROG) - which one is the best for a 24/7,game, cad &video machine, minimal OC, good 3rd party air cooler. (probably noctua, but not the nh-d14, something smaller..)

Thanks!

did you ever swap out the amp to see if it was the problem? Its extremely simple you don't even have to use the tool, just make sure to align the other amp correctly. This is very interesting because I have a few of the Sniper 5s and I am testing all of them to see if I have this same hiss and I don't really notice anything unless I turn the speakers to max and the volume max and play nothing, but doing that on any motherboard or sound card gets some hiss on most sound outputs. It could be a bad batch of boards or a bad batch of amps or something similar and you just got unlucky, or maybe its a problem with some version of the BIOS. Can you try to switch to your backup BIOS and flash BIOS F5? THen if you don't like F5 you can just switch back to the other BIOS with a flick of a switch. BTW are you overclocking?

Can you also do me a favor maybe this will help narrow down the issue, open a program up called DPC latency checker and post a screen shot of what is recorded while you get the hiss:

So are you guys seeing the crazy high temps on 1 or 2 cores like some others are? I know the 3770 had the same issue and deliding and redoing the thermal paste really helped. I am going back and forth with getting a 4770 and the G1 sniper 5.
post #70 of 1890
a 4770K or 4770?

On two cores i usually see slightly higher temperatures, that i just how the cores are laid out and what they are closer too.
