So I realized that my OC board shipped with the F3 BIOS. Even though the F4 came out in May technically?

Downloaded F4 from website and installed and now it's working fine smile.gif

Set voltage to 1.25v, multiplier to 46 and started stability testing. Blue screen frown.gif. So i dialed it back to 43 and working up. So far seems stable at 4.3GHz on 1.25v. Wonder how far i can go on this voltage before i start getting blue screens.

By the way the Windows 8 blue screen is pretty funny if you haven't seen it. Much less ZOMG shocking than the older ones. It just says " frown.gif your computer ran into some issues" on a baby blue background.

Still getting a lot of freezes when entering or using BIOS. Debating whether I should try the F6E beta BIOS.

Anyone using Samsung low voltage ram? If so, what kind of freq and timings can you get? Not sure what kind of values I should be using pushing past 2133.

First pass at overclocking today. Not bad... fairly effortless 4.5Ghz. I'm up to 10 passes now, still stable. Screenshot is from earlier.

Anyone using adaptive/auto voltage for overclocking? Obviously, you wouldn't try to test stability with it since it would push voltages to like 1.4+ but if you find a good OC @ 1.2 volts, wouldn't it be smart to leave it at auto so that you can idle at less than 1 volt? I'm assuming that the FIVR and digital power delivery means the auto voltage is much smarter than the Z77 generation.

FWIW, on my UD3H, even when I set a manual fixed voltage the measurement test points still show the voltage going down at idle.  So I'm not sure what's going on.  I tried offset and the voltage was what I expected under normal loads (1.33V) but as soon as I ran IBT the voltage jumped to 1.43V.  So offset doesn't sound like a great idea until we know exactly when it is going to kick up like that.

that's actually awesome

I guess it has something to do with

Many of them reported that LinX (IBT) is not working on Haswell well (you should have at least 100+ GFlops and of course temp.will be higher).
Try Prime95 27.9 or OCCT 4.4.0.

Sample about LinX GFlops:

or
did you use LinX (11.0.1.005)

That would be great. Thanks for the info.

This was the Windows install from hell. Replaced my Z77 UD5H with Z87 UD5H, and spent the weekend borking Samsung SSD's....well, not destroying them literally but I finally got Win 7 to install on one of them. Even the Samsung utility would not secure erase them as they are "frozen", what ever that means. Of my 3 SSD's I have two back working now but it will probably take loading Parted Magic again and wiping the third one again before it's usable.
I went through this same crap with some Corsair SSD's last year.
Procedure:
Go to install Windows and it says it can't install to the disk.
Drop back and use DISKPART to clean and make a new partition.
Try to install Windows. Starts unpacking files and gets to reboot stage.
Reboots to the install disk instead of into Windows.
and on and on and on and on and on.
Several times throughout the process I used Parted Magic to wipe the disks. Finally when Windows does install you have no idea why or what was different that time around. Weird!

Also it seems the Z87 is doing the same thing as my Z77, that is when you attach up 6 or 7 drives it seems to confuse either the bios or Windows and sometimes makes booting a chore, with me loading optimized defaults often. Brand new SATA data cables, brand new (made by me) SATA power cables. What's up with this? Could be I'm to blame but I had the same thing going on with Z77 from time to time.

No overclocking yet, still working on the rig. Sorry I wrote a book here...... smile.gif

Ok having some issues with my 4770k and Z87X-UD4. I'm getting a random BSOD, I think its RAM related, I tested it with Memtest86 and it came back no errors. Can it still be RAM?

Edit- turns out I have BIOS F3 newest Is F5, well see if this fixes


In the mean time what driver do I need for "PCI Simple Communications Controller"?
