Is it possible I have a "Golden" 3770K? - Page 3

Reinary's thread FYI

So i was unaware that z68 showed this problem. Wasnt z68 using digital vrm? Or at least better vrm than z77?

If it indeed is stable then it definitely has some gold in it. Congratulations. My 3770k also does 4.5GHz at 1.15V. tongue.gif I wouldn't trust IBT for stability testing. My cpu can do IBT with 1.10V for as long as I wish but crashes under BF3.

So from what I read with these threads and online reviewers the board I have, is not the one with the reported problems. The asrocks boards that have the issue are the ones without vcore measuring points.

However seeing as how I'm a noob when it comes to this specific subject, I'm willing to verify. So could someone point me towards the vcore measuring points on this board? I googled but couldn't find anything. When I get in my shop ill boot up prime and check the vcore through a multimeter. To verify or dismiss my golden chip.

I remember some people speculating that it was a firmware bug with the PWM driver. If that were true, only the OC formula would be unaffected.

Good chip if true. Try to find your limit before needing a ton more voltage. I can do 1.7 for 4.5, 1.22 for 4.6 and 1.26 for 4.7.... However I then need 1.37 for 4.8 so my limit is 4.7. This recent batch seems to be doing well, mine is new also.

@OP

Who shipped out the processor? Was it the Hibbert Group? If yes, then it bodes really well for the one I have inbound from them right now. Also please post the batch number on the box.

If it truly is a golden one, I'd probably pay you a pretty penny for it. I've got well over $2000 in my cooling system, so I'd really like trying to get it up to 5.2 Ghz+ on sane voltages.

dr/owned,

In sig it stats 5.1Ghz 1.65v? How is the chip holding that? noticed any degration from the since you set it to 1.65v?

Yes, it's degraded now which is why I have a new 3770k coming. Right now I've had to drop back to 4.9 @ 1.575 just to be able to get BF3 to launch without crashing. The chip was never golden by any stretch.

As Sin0822 kindly points out in the Asrock extreme4 vcore -thread, the problem is only present on the boards that use the Intersil analog PWM. However, this is not the case with the Z77 Pro3 for example and therefore might not be present with your board either.

It's just that when peeps see a thread like this they immediately assume there's something off with the board especially after the Extreme4's bogus vcore reading problem became apparent.
