Have no issues at all with the M6F block.

No, AFAIK, not separate and yes that lower one wud be a PITA to do the plumbing with SLI rig

Has this been a noticeable issue for anyone? I've tried searching Google and the forum for any info but have struck out so far. I'm considering getting the EK NB/SB set but I have no intention of using the SB block as it would interfere with my intended layout. Can you buy them separately? I've only seen them sold as a set.
Was worried with what Jack mentioned, dual cards and fittings on the southbridge looks either like a tight fit by millimeters or undoable. I personally would not be a fan of only being able to use the southbridge by using certain backplates on gpu and fittings on the southbridge block. Makes it an expensive $100 northbridge block biggrin.gif

I'm going to have to try the bios you mentioned... First, I must ask silly questions smile.gif
"-Intel 4770k - @ 46 multiplier / 46 cache ratio on BIOS 0804 ....45/42 on 1102"

Was that 46/46 and 45/42 both with the same voltage?
Or just the chip/board being able to do the 46/46 stable on one bios vs the other....
Yes, I know, silly question, but if it was same voltage then I'll be flashing my bios tonight.
First thing I did when I got my board was flash to 1302 bios without reading much on it since it was fairly new.

46/46 was 1.375 on BIOS 0804 with peaks hitting like 1.42
46/46 was 1.38 on BIOS 1102 with peaks hitting like 1.48 but was unstable

45/45 was 1.275 on BIOS 0804 with peaks hitting like 1.328
45/45 was 1.325 on BIOS 1102 with peaks hitting like 1.440
45/42 was 1.29 on BIOS 1102 with peaks hitting like 1.408

I can verify this as well that I also get a tad bit better overall overclock on the older bios 0804 for example....

0804 4.7ghz 1.29v load 1.31v adaptive uncore stock for testing....

newest bios--- 4.7ghz 1.31v load 1.336v stock uncore
^^^^had trouble loading windows under 1.3v with newest bios Win8.1 64b

both 1.9 input voltage

Hello guys, did plug both 8pin and 4pin connector for the cpu?
I've seen an Asus video that said the 4pin is not really needed for most case, only for "extreme" overclock . I currently have trouble to stabilize oc when I go up to 1.3vcore.
I will probably give a try to bios 0804 as well. I'm on 1302 right now.

Are you changing the vrin input voltage and lowering the uncore and setting a manual uncore voltage?
Haswell is not like sandy or ivy where you change vcore for clocks



theres a thread up with haswell oc'ing it's quite big, but there is some useful information in there, not sure what you have done so far but I would definitely check it out

Yep I tried up to 2v and many other things explained in the haswell overclocking guide here.
From my testing I'm not sure if the 4pin cpu power connector has really an impact for stability, or the bios version, or simply a less than average 4770k.

I have a question, I am considering to buy this motherboard, and I want to know what the ROG EXT connector is used for.

95% of the overclockablity << word/kinda sounds cool ha of a chip is based on the chip itself or the dye...

I have gone thorugg well me and my frineds have gone thourgh prly 30-40 4770k's and some 4670k's only to have 3 or 4 of those chips be able to run 4.9ghz-5ghz stable under 1.5v 24/7 also we delid to help with temps etc...

so you get my point...yes a good board can help some as well as a solid bios....some cheaper z87 boards will overclock well up to a certain point and most will tell you its a waste of coin to buy higher end boards etc....but don't be fooled by those comments...as Ive played with just about every z87 board since release and these statements are very wrong.

The higher end asus/asrock and gigabyte/MSi boards have better/more options and better voltage control and regulation s well as better vrm cooling etc...these features and def. play a part in stability vs just a benchmark overclock.
