I know on the Force it says that you have to have the ATX_12v (which on mine. Force) is the 4 pin, or it will not start, as far as for the other 8 pins, I am not sure if they are just for OCing and the extra juice, but dont hold me to that. I dont know. My Power has 2 8 pins.

could it possibly damage the mobo if i tried powering it without the 4 pin connected, and just the 24 pin and the 8 pin connected?

Best thing I can tell, you after you spent all this money and I wont until I know 100% its ok. So go here, and put in a Support ticket at the bottom, asking them and then you have you bases covered. and if here from here first cool, if you dont and you hear from them, then you can let us know.

Better be safe then sorry with a new system.

CPu running at a higher speed will die sooner just from the current increase, plus you upgrade once every few years id say you'll be okay lol. I say keep it under 90C in IBT and you are fine since nothing really stresses CPus like that.

At least now you can un-bottleneck your GPUs as well lol. Don't let the naysayers get you down, they are looking for reasons to say their CPU is better than yours lol.

Who said there was a problem?
I'm pretty stoked with those results performance wise. smile.gif
Power I couldn't care about as it's included in my rent, I generally try to use as much as possible hahaha
It's probably negated by the fact I have to turn my air con up higher to counter the extra heat dump in my room now anyway.

Dunno about IBT, seems wrong... even at stock it hits around 80'C
God knows how bad it would of been with the stock cooler...
Might stick with prime95 for now, slower way to test but it seems a little less aggressive smile.gif

Chip seems like a crap clocker unfortunately, tried feeding it up to 1.275V and still bsod in prime at only 45x.
Might be like my old 3820 and really need some in depth tweaking to really get anywhere.

Gunna have to do it learn all the ins and outs and do it the long and hard way doh.gif

Hey mate, I had the same thing.
I'm just using the 4+4 pin and left the normal 4 pin unconnected, Work fine thumb.gif

CPU is obviously getting power or I wouldn't be typing this tongue.gif

Thread Starter 
yea 1.275v for 4.5ghz how much for 4.4ghz? 1.22?

Yea you don't need both the 8 and 4 pin power connectors, you can even use 4x2 and one extra 4 like self_slaughtr did, they are all connected anyways in the PCB.

Ok thanks, rep+
Now that i have that straightened up, i went to boot, and i keep getting error codes 19 and 15, which are pre-memory north-bridge initialization started and pre-memory south-bridge initialization started, respectively. I have tried google, but can't seem to find a straight answer.
here are the specs:
CPU: 4770k
Mobo: GA-Z87X-OC
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 8GB (4*2) 1600
PSU: Corsair HX750
Cooler: Corsair H60
SSD: Samsung 840 pro 128gb
HDD: WD caviar black 1tb

I have tried both sticks of ram, and have unplugged the SSD and the HDD, but the error codes keep popping up, then the system shuts down for a couple seconds, and turns back on and repeats the process. Any help is appreciated

No idea on the error codes etc but if you've tried moving the ram around, clear bios etc maybe just give the cpu a quick remount?
Might be sitting slightly funky or something...

I just put my sticks in the two orange slots and booted without drama thankfully.

edit: mind you with all the buttons / switches on this board wouldn't be surprised if something is off setting either lol

This looks like a really sexy and excellent board in overclocking! Good job GIGABYTE thumb.gif
