While I was in the bios I noticed under Advanced\System Agent Config\NB PCIe Config it shows slot 1 "Running at x4 Native".

The second slot showed the x8 Native. I was surprised by this, so I checked Aida64, CPUz and GPUz all show x4.


Here is the list of what I tried to trouble shoot:

1. Checked for bios update, when I first built the system I updated to the most recent which was version 1030 (not positive on the number), just a few weeks later there is version 1102, and the original update version I used was not listed anymore. So I updated to the most current version 1102. Still only shows x4. Updated to the brand new bios today version 1203. Still only shows x4. Now running 1402.

2. In the bios under Advanced\System Agent Config\NB PCIe Config, changed both cards from "Auto" to "Gen 3". Still only shows x4.

3. Removed the lower gpu, still only shows x4.

4. Switched power cable from power supply to the top and only card, still only shows x4.

5. Removed the gpu from the top slot and put the one that was in the lower slot in the top slot, still only shows x4. Note: I purchased the two graphics cars from two different venders several weeks apart, so very unlikely to be a bad batch of cards.

6. Removed the Creative Sound Blaster ZXR card that was installed in the top x1 slot above the top PCIe slot, still only shows x4.

7. Removed the Blue tooth / Wireless card, still only shows x4.

8. Reset the CPU, still shows x4.

Looks like my replacement board arrived today. I'll be swapping it out over the weekend and report back.

Another quick question for you guys. I should be able to just swap the mother board without having to reinstall windows correct?

In theory, yes. BUT, the activation and "legitimacy" of windows install is based on the MAC address of the board, so at some point, it will make you "re-activate" the windows install. Personally, I always reinstall windows, it's fast and makes sure there are no issues.

Just wanted to stop by and say hello. I just finished a build with M6F. I love the board.
I hate the 4770k. I will post some pics soon.

Now I have to find the "Extremely disappointed in the I7 4770K Club."

Hit the heat wall at 4.2. 1.26v

Regards,
CB

Have you checked out the Haswell Overclocking Guide yet?
http://www.overclock.net/t/1411077/haswell-overclocking-guide-with-statistics

Read through the guide at least twice, and there's always people there to help you out.

I absolutely did. That is a great guide but this is the one I recommend http://www.simforums.com/forums/haswell-48ghz-on-air-building-a-haswell-system_topic46180.html

Very few Haswells OC well. I lost in the silicon lottery.

Thanks.

Ouch. my i5 4670K is stable at 4.6 @ 1.3v. I just have a H105 keeping mine cool. Mine never hit the temp wall. It was hitting instability before I ever had to worry about heat, even throwing 1.38v at it. It just didn't like 4.7 at all tongue.gif

In it's current state it never went much above 60C during benching for stability.

My current 4770k isnt too bad a clocker, (1.275v for 4.5ghz). However its quite a hot running chip. Mid 90's with synthetic tests such as p95. In games with the cpu fans on turbo profile it gets into the mid 70's, fans at full speed mid 60's. Thank god i have noise cancelling headphones. Ive considered delidding it but havent plucked up the courage so far.

I'm still working it, but I don't see much hope. I'm hitting the 90's with AVX. Mid 80's with linkpack large.
I reseated the block--just to be sure I can sleep at night. No love so far. If I can get this to 4.4 I'll happy.
44,44,44,44,44,44 with ram @ 2400 is my goal. I'm wondering if 16 gb ram is too much.

The Haswell is a dog.
