Question I can't seem to figure out myself, any help please.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Ok so I just want to know if my i7 3770k is of a good batch or what. I fount the big forum post up of the i7 3770k batch's and what not for overclocking but mine isn't in there at all. I got an i7 3770k Batch # 3231C***. On that forum with the batch lists I saw someone post up that the C models are rare and there pure power and expectations are not to known since there rare but that just brushed past me like kinda bs, but what do I know lol. Any info would be gladly appreciated. Loving the chip just would be awesome to know mine is of the better batches. wink.gif

Sounds good. Yea just thought I'd see if someone on here would have any idea for my batch since someone took the time to figure out what all the other batches were as far as quality goes.

Batches are all over the place though, 2 chips with identical batch numbers can overclock quite differently. Testing is really the only way to know.

Any ideas anyone....

So I've been messing around with OC my system for about a solid month now. I'm using Offset mode. I have an i7 3770k currently running @ 4.3ghz. Been stable for weeks now @ +0.005v. Core temps are solid and very low. Running an H80i. At that clock speed and offset voltage I was maxing out @ around 1.288v running prime95. Seemed kinda high but ran very stable so I now decided to just work on lowering my Offset to get a lower Max load volt. I lowered it from +0.005v to -0.005v and went on from there gradually till I got to -0.015v. So far it got down to 1.272v - 1.264. It bounce a bit. Am I doing something wrong here cause to me it seems like lowering my offset vcore isnt really lowering my max load voltage. Maybe a hair bit I though it would stick at say 1.272v then drop it to -0.015v it would then drop down to 1.257v but that doesn't seem to be the case. I'm using CPU-Z by the way for my voltage reports. Latest version I believe too.

Thanks, I'm currently doing some OC testing for myself actually atm. Having a bit of some issues though. Well not issues but things that are confusing me atm haha.
