Haswell Overclocking Guide [With Statistics] - Page 262

post #2611 of 19539
I considered the extreme as well then decided to go for MSI. I did consider getting an xPower but these high end boards including the extreme are really for the pro guys using LN2 etc i think. From what i can gather you're not going to be able to achieve a higher clock by changing from a mid range board to a high end board at the home user level, the cpu being the main limiting factor. If there is a difference i certainly don't think it will be worth the extra £200 outlay! I'm on an mPower (didn't have G65 in stock at the time) and have no issues with it at all. That being said i am blessed with a slightly better than average cpu i think.

Nice score...

Many reviews I read indicated the MSI boards were just not performing as well as the others. I considered it too.

Username: klepp0906

CPU Model: 4770k

Core Multiplier: 49

CPU VID: 1.450

Vcore: 1.464

Uncore Multiplier: 46

Uncore Voltage: 1.350

Cooling Solution: Supremacy

Stability Test: 2x IBT Maximum 2x Hyper Pi per setting change. (prime over night once im satisfied)

Batch Number: Me in my infinite wisdom didn't write this down before lapping my IHS, and lapped my IHS when I was going to delid anyhow. Sigh

Ram Speed: 1866 (timings or speed, that is the question!)

Dramv: 1.50

VCRIN: 2.100

SA: .150
Dig .150
Ana .150


Pictures incoming once im done stress testing on the main box (typing from laptop atm) Numbers are my last successful test. wil update as needed. Chip is a nice one if I may say so myself! Alas, IBT on maximum takes too farking long with 32gb of ram. Im contemplating running 2 dims instead of 4 to see if I cant get 5.0 at a reasonable voltage. 1.6 allows me to run it stable but this is my 24/7 overclock and im not positive that Im comfortable running 1.6 nonstop. Hmmm....

thx for this thread though! talk about helpful for many people im sure!

Getting a fancy $370 or $180 board won't help you.

The z87x-oc has same VRM IIRC as the z87x-d3h - what are you hoping to accomplish with the 1.5x extra cost? ln2 RAM clocking?

You could probably fix up some stuff, it took me months to get to know haswell, get to know my CPU and for stuff like bios bugs to be ironed out, if you're just throwing voltages around nothing will work. If you're ever unstable for two reasons then you completely lose the ability to test and see if a change fixes anything - because if you remove one problem, the other will still fail you so there's almost no feedback. If you just got a terrible CPU that sucks, but it's probably not as bad as you think with perfect settings, and swapping boards won't change your silicon - if you had $370 to spend on a board like that, you'd seriously, on average, get far far better clocks just buying a z87x-d3h and two cpu's to see which clocks better. There's no reason to get an OC over a d3h unless you want niche features.

Why is everything colder in the Z87X-D3H picture, even the RAM and chipset?

im going to venture out on a limb and say that's the point of the picture (which is really neat btw)

Cool picture, but really just shows that the gigabyte there doesn't dump the vrm heat well. The point of the vrm heatsinks is to get the heat away from the component.

It was done without heatsinks. They ripped them off if I understood it right. It's through Google translation from that Czech article.

I'm glad my g45s gimmicky dragon heatsinks actually work well.
