Love this guide. Thank you. Exchanging my maximus 6 extreme for the z87 OC, hopefully will be able to get some clocking done with the help of this guide.

If you couldn't get it to boot 4.5 at 1.3vcore, you got either a really bad cpu or was making pretty major mistakes though, keep in mind

Alrighty soooo this is interesting. I tried switching to classic mode but the button on the right if I clicked them or hit enter nothing would happen. So I saved and restarted and when I got back to my BIOS I was back to the new settings. Urg...

So I overclocked from the new settings but I would like some advice here since I could not find some things and I'm confused on others, I went off of this template and I'll put my notes in bold: 90% of the chips I've OCed starting with a Barton 2500 were all AMD Chips and I've never owned a quadcore so cut me a little slack if I sound stupid here.

An Easy 4.4/4.5/4.6GHz Template: (I just did 4.2Ghz for now)
Here are the settings I used; you can use them as a template for your settings:
Profile #1 Basic Profile:
CPU VRIN Override LLC: Set to Extreme (this is to make sure VIN doesn’t droop) Set to extreme
CPU VRIN Override Voltage: 1.7-2.0v I believe I found this under cpu core voltage they have an on / off switch next to most things whats that about? I set it to 1.7 and ON. Do I want it set to ON?
VCore: 1.24-1.34v Vcore is set to 1.24 and Set to ON (again do I want it set to ON?)
Ring Voltage: 1.15 or 1.2v Set to 1.15 and Set to ON I hope I should have it set to ON
CPU Multiplier: 44x-46x Set to 42 (Under CPU Clock ratio and ON. I did not see anywhere that said multiplier so I'm hoping Clock ratio was correct)

There are three settings I have no idea what I am doing or should set them with what do I do with:
"CPU Base clock" No idea what to set it to, right now its set to Auto and OFF next to it
"performance upgrade"
"CPU Upgrade"


BCLK: Auto <- I could not find this anywhere? Is it called something else?
Turbo: Auto I believe I found this, Is Intel turbo boost tech under advanced CPU Core settings right below uncore ratio correct?

I set my Uncore to 42 to match my cpu is that correct?

Do I have to go anywhere and select anything so all the cores run at the same speed?


C1E, C3, C6/C7, and EIST: I didn't touch any of these.

I noticed in HWiNFO64 my pcie Status is 100Mhz 1.00x is that normal I will post a picture and please tell me if everything looks good here too.



Thanks guys appreciate the help thumb.gif

You know that since Sandy Bridge board's do very little to help overclock the CPU and with Haswell even less since they have integrated voltage regulator so a board with 6 8 or 16 phases will behave pretty much the same with CPU OC.

PCIE is supposed to be 100mhz, set your uncore down to 34x though to start out

Peanuts4,
F2 must hit to classic mode or go to "System"...at the bottom you can change to classic mode
(will boot always in classic mode).

Hi guys, I'm working on my first OC. I'm using a 4770K (batch L312) with a GA-Z87X-D3H and have a couple of questions.

I've gotten my CPU stable for 24 hours of Intel XTU with the following settings:
  • Multiplier = 45
  • Vcore = 1.29V in bios (1.308V as reported by HWiNFO64)
  • VRIN = 1.9V
  • VRIN LLC = Extreme, VRIN LLC Protection = 200mV
  • Cache Multiplier = 35 (40) -- default
  • Vring = Auto -- default

I'm cooling with a Noctua NH-U14S; temps for XTU average anywhere from 66C to 70C (depending on ambient) with spikes to max of 5C higher. I've only tried brief runs with AIDA64; one of which was "Stress FPU" by itself, which took temps up to 99C and throttled by 12%... so needless to say I stopped that within about five seconds biggrin.gif.

My questions are:

  1. Are these safe temps/voltages? Most things I've read point to yes, but the stress FPU test freaked me out a bit so I thought I'd ask.
  2. The reason I've kept the cache at default settings is because I was unable to stabilize anything much higher. I started at 1:1 core mult/cache mult and walked down to 42, max Vring of 1.25 to be safe since I couldn't find much info on Vring safety... but after I was unable to get cache mult of 42 stable at 1.22 I decided I was probably wasting my time for not a whole lot of benefit. My question: are there any other factors/things I could try to boost ring bus stability? Perhaps more VRIN? Or should I just say screw it?
  3. My GPU arrived DOA mad.gif so I've been using the iGPU while dialing in my overclock; in retrospect, this seems like it might have been a bad idea since it stands to reason that the iGPU drawing power might itself affect my OC voltages or stability in some way. Is this a reasonable fear? How much effect will this have, and would it be a good idea to redo my voltages after my replacement GPU gets here?

Thanks!

anyone out there using the cooler master seidon 240M aio water cooler? was using the thermalright true 120 before but could not go above 1.20V since temps would go over 90 during stability testing. i just swapped over the 240M and im not getting better temps like i expected. wondering if i should just stick with the thermalright true. my 4770k is delidded as well. using arctic silver 5.

Thats high for a delided cpu. You using AS5 on the die? Try ice diamond 7 on the die. I went from 80c to 55c after i delided. I hear its not a good idea to use traditional Tim on the die. Stick to the cls but redo your paste. Also, AS5 is pretty dated and has a long settle time. Try something newer for the block. I'm using the Gelid extreme that came with my EK Supremacy block.

To be honest I was thinking the same thing that as5 was dated. Problem is I delidded my other rig which was an ivy bridge 3570k and the temps are great using as5. I know haswell runs hotter.

I've redone the the Tim on both the die and the heat sink and this last time was the best temps I've gotten. I just didnt know if the 240m was capable of cooling well or just a crappy cls.
