Extremely bad 3570k?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, a couple of months ago, I oc'd my cpu to 4.4ghz, ran prime for 11 hours+ & IBT for 4-5 hours, also gamed on it for quite a while too. Recently, out of nowhere it BS'd on me whilst I was browsing Reddit. I wasn't running anything else in the BG apart from minor things like uTorrent and VLC. After it BS'd, I ran Prime95 and it BS'd again after 2 minutes with the 124 error code, so I went back in to the UEFI and upped the voltage to 1.28 (previously was on 1.25) and once again, it BS'd after 2 mins of Prime. This kept happening so I started to think that it wasn't so stable after all and reverted the UEFI settings to stock and began again.

Now I can't get a stable 4.5 no matter what I do. Here are my settings.

vcore @ 1.344
CPU Spread spectrum disabled
LLC on high
CPU phase control on extreme
Speed step enabled, C1E enabled, C3/C6/package state all disabled

Now, as for the voltage, the CPU will BS if I enter anything lower.


I'm stress testing with Prime95 using custom settings provided by Xeb, which are; Min & Max FFT size at 1792, 90% of ram usage and 1 min time for each FFT to run.

So my question is, am I doing something wrong? I've seen others with my CPU reaching 4.5ghz+ on lower volts and yes, I do know that every CPU is different but I'm beginning to wonder whether it's me that's at fault and not my CPU.

Thanks for any replies.

Specs are in my sig.

My friend has this board and let me tell you that it has a few quirks that are related to the bios, it causes the same effect where it will crash on OCCT within like 20-30 seconds even if you reduce the ratio substantially.

This is only speculation but it has something to do with the settings that adjust ratio and cpu power saving.

Removing the battery only does not work you have to also use the CMOS jumper as well.

I would suggest doing this and then use EZ flash with the newest bios.

This is just from my experience with this board and the P8Z77-V that I use.


Also do you have AI Suite installed?

Has updating to the latest BIOS fixed the issue for your friend? And no, I don't have that installed. Thanks for your reply

No I have seen it happen even with newest bios, Asrock boards also have similar problems with retaining bios settings even after a cmos clear or cold boot reverting to previous settings I have that same problem with this board, many times someone will turn the computer on and it will freeze at the windows loading screen, which you have to manually restart and enter the bios and press F10 its very aggravating.

I'm missing something, maybe -- but in your message you talk about how months ago you got a stable 4.4 GHz clock, and "now" you can't get a stable 4.5 GHz. Have you considered that maybe your 3570K just simply won't do 4.5 GHz at any reasonable voltage?

VRM degradation is another possibility, especially if it's on the P8Z77-V LX. The LX is a budget Z77 board and doesn't have the most robust of VRM designs - not exactly an overclocking powerhouse.

I haven't been able to get my friends 2500k anywhere past 4.6 stable on the LX it will run 4.7 or boot to windows with 4.8 but not for long and that's at any voltage I've tried. I run my 2500k at 5ghz on the P8Z77-V pretty easy though.

Yes, although I have seen LX's on higher volts without any problems

Guess I'll just keep trying to clock it to 4.5 redface.gif
