OC´ing 4670K on an Asrock Z87E-ITX

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Has anyone tried overclocking their Haswell on the Asrock Z87E-IX motherboard? Im having trouble getting past 4 Ghz, which runs at 1,2v and nice temps, so I am really hoping to get to 4,2-4,4 ish. But there are so many options to tweak, and I really have little idea about most of them.

Ive tried using the mb´s predefined settings for 4,2 for instance, which fails Prime95 after a few seconds. Ive tried just adding more voltage and keep the predefined settings, but its exactly the same at 1,35v. I think there are options Ive failed to take into account.

I realise that Haswell is new, and I have no problem waiting until good guides surface (are there any good, detailed ones yet?), but if anyone has had any luck on said motherboard, Id be happy to know what you did and what worked.

I've been running 4.5GHz at 1.275v with my 4670k for months. Not a single hangup. Great board for OC'ing
