4770k Overclocking Help Asus Maximius VI Mobo

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I recently sold my 3770k rig since I was getting an amazing deal. I had my 3770k overclocked to 4.8ghz using just the regular asus z77 pro motherboard.

I purchased the 4770k with the maximus 6 board and I am completely lost. I have never used a rog board so everything is new to me.

I played around with a few basic settings and so far my temps get really hot and I need to use a lot of voltage in order to even boot into windows.

Was wondering if someone here is able to give me some settings I should change in my motherboard just to get me started so I can see what Im dealing with.

If my chip is as bad as I think, I am going to end up returning it.

Im using an h100i and I dont have my 690 installed when doing all of this.

Thanks

Without getting into Rog settings as other will be able help better, you do realise that Haswell is not a great over-clocker? I've given my views here for what they are worth:

http://www.overclock.net/t/1411618/lets-be-honest-haswell-is-pants-for-overclocking

The UNCore suggestion in that thread did help but in the end the conclusion I came to was anything above 4.2GHz was just too hot to be sustainable day in day out. The H100i is a good cooling option but to me reading between the lines plenty of sites are suggesting most retail Haswells are struggling to get above 4.4GHz with sensible temps. Almost any decent Z87 motherboard will deliver a suitable overclock solution the limiter is the CPU, the voltage and resultant cooling requirement.

I love the challenge of over clocking, but Haswell really is more abut the performance at stock (which is is excellent) because I don't see getting a Haswell to 4.7GHz at a temp of near 100C is much of an achievement.

Hey Midnite, have you watched any guides on how to overclock in the Maximus 6 BIOS?

Here is a great guide from Linus, with the exact same board:
