Yeah, I can't complain about it tempwise either. I'm just one of those guys who weighs in worst case scenarios too much rolleyes.gif

To be honest, a new motherboard block, gpu block, fujipoly ultra extreme thermal pads, will end up running more than a couple hundred bucks which is why I am not too eager to make the purchase.

Heck, I'll need 2 more fittings for southbridge, 2 more for gpu, and to even order another 10ft of tubing since I'll have to re-route my loop

You know how it is, you go to make an order for 3 items and then your cart has 12 and you ask yourself why, why, why!!!! biggrin.gif

If it's the same revision number, I would....if not i think I'd reinstall.

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

What water block are you using ? .... yes, I was being facetious smile.gif

A very good air cooler is required for voltage levels above 1.15V.

1.20V-1.23V requires use of closed loop water coolers.

At 1.24V-1.275V dual or triple radiator water cooling solutions are advised.

My version of the above......

- A very good air cooler is required for voltage levels above 1.15V....aka Hyper 212

- 1.20V-1.24V requires use of 240/280 closed loop water coolers of the "Big 3" air coolers (Phanteks PH-TC14-PE, Thermalright Silver Arrow, Noctua DH-14)

- At 1.25V-1.35V dual or triple radiator water cooling solutions are advised.

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.

Haswell and AVX is a new era ..... I don't find much use for P95 except for raising my temps to a point whereby I can accelerate TIM curing. I can be 8 hour P95 stable and then crash under RoG Real Bench .... or the big crash maker.... I let my son play BF4.

I do all my Haswell Overclocking with RoG Bench .... post build I was RoG Real Bench stable at 4.6 Ghz (4.5 cache ratio) and 74C at 1.325 on BIOS 0804 ..... upgrading to 1102 borked that .... and at 4.5 Ghz / 45 CR .... temps are OK my voltage now spikes to 1.48 under adaptive.

Given that P95 failure to serve as stability tester .... I just use it to set my paste and cut cure time....I have picked up as much as 1-2C getting temps 5-10C above (80-85) where I am comfy sitting at (75C). RoG Real Bench puts teh system through a variety of real application loads that adequately stress the system ....including AVX in a "real application" setting.

I'm very comfortable with my 74C but the voltages at 1.48 have stopped me from going any further....at least not with this BIOS.....haven't seen anything better outta 12xx thru 14xx. 11xx thru 14xx came out rapid fire....I'm hoping that 15xx gives back what we had in 0804.

I mean, the reason why most people switch from the stock water block to EK is supposed be the different material the block is made of or is it not?

Yup..... and here's why....

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3DZbSlkFoSU

They "read it on the internet" smile.gif ... that:

1. The M6F is aluminum .... FALSE .... it's actually anodized aluminum.
2. Aluminum will corrode the other parts of the cooling system ... FALSE .... scientifically impossible; aluminum is a less noble money so if anything, the aluminum would act as a sacrificial anode like a 'zinc" on an outboard motor and actually protect the other parts of the cooling system from corrosion.

It's shame.... that $100 could pay for an 2nd set of pull fans on the rads, a GFX card upgrade or even most of the cost of a GFX card WB. Not to mention, getting to the extra block is a bear in SLI / CF systems.... can't imagine it in rigid acrylic.

I am actually having a hard time convincing myself to buy it.

That south bridge block bothers me, looks like it will be a pain for dual/tri gpu setups

Yeah I'm right there with you. Time and money wasted for little to ZERO gain. One question do you know a way to set up tri sli on the formula? I tried using 3x 780 but the nvidia control center suddenly lost the option to enable sli? Anyways no big deal. Just wish the formula came with more usb 9pin headers. I'm using rog ext headers for oc panel, so my last header is for the corsair link so I don't have front panel USB port lol!

3 way SLI can't be done on the Formula VI. With 3 cards the PCIe slots are x8, x4, x4. SLI requires x8 on all slots.

2 way SLI is your max.

Tri-Sli will not work on the Formula board. The 3rd slot maxes out at x4, and Tri Sli requires x8 minimum. You can run three AMD cards in cross-fire however.

Wihglah pushed enter before I did lol

Coincidentally - I went SLI today:
