i5 3570k Overclock Help

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I am a complete newbie when it comes to overclocking, I had found these settings on the EVGA forums and had applied it. Everything ran fine but it seems the 4.7Ghz does not seem to correctly show

Here is my CPUZ Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Here are my BIOS settings - Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

"CPU Thermal Throttling Enabled

^^^ That very well could be the problem.

Also, I didnt see anything about C3,C6 states, EIST, Turbo boost enabled or disabled...

EASY EXPLANATION ON HOW TO GET YOUR CPU LIKE YOU WANT IT:
CPU Thermal Throttling: DISABLED
C3, C6 States: Disabled
EIST/Speedstep: Disabled
Turbo Boost: disabled

NOTE: I'm not sure if it is the BIOS or the CPU itself that is responsible for the "bug" I'm about to mention, but you'll want to check into this anyway:

Make SURE that your TURBO BOOST clock frequencies for each core is set to the speed you want. (Example: My 3570k runs at a 24/7 speed of 4.6ghz. Therefore, I will go into my BIOS CPU settings and find "Turbo Boost" and then set each core to 4.6 ghz then DISABLE THE SETTING. (If you're wondering why you would need to bother changing the speed if it is going to be disabled anyway, that is the bug I'm referring to. I've personally worked on several ivy bridge (3570k mostly) that will keep going back to the frequencies that are set in the turbo boost setting EVEN IF YOU DISABLE IT.)

Next, go to your power settings and make sure that all your thermal throttle controls are set to OFF.

NOTE: This is pretty obvious, but make sure you are using accurate temp monitoring software for both your GPU and your processor at all times if you are going to overclock. Once you get your settings corrected, the only things you'll need to change to achieve a 4.6-4.7ghz stable (by stable I mean 10 passes on EXTREME setting with Intel Burn test with acceptable temperatures and no errors) are going to be the core voltage and the frequency.

Unless you were very unlucky with the batch your processor came out of, you should be fine with the Noctua air cooler and those speeds as long as you have a decent case and your airflow is set up correctly. (Google Positive vs negative PC case pressure and read up some on it if you haven't. It's very useful information when trying to keep your temperatures low inside your case, especially with air cooling.)


Hope this helps. If you have questions, PM me or reply back here and I'll help all I can.

Regards,
Clint

Disabled it and nothing seemed to change, but I noticed when I go for a restart it just keeps looping until I manually shut down then boot up again.

I also tried the factory OC settings 4.6/4.7/4.8 and it gave me bluescreens

Image from WhoCrashed Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

It could be my settings or my chip?

Using factory OC to 4.2 seems to run fine but higher speeds do not

Using the Asrock Z77 Extreme4 btw

Any suggestions on how I can get this overclock working?

Good place to start here. The Asrock Extreme 4 z77 is known to report voltage lower then it actually is so you may want to be careful with your core voltages.

My advice, don't try to do it quick and dirty. Learn what you are doing first and do it properly. You won't find many people around here who would suggest to use overclocking software do it yourself from the BIOS.

Also it won't necessarily work to copy settings from someone else, every chip and board combination behaves differently, some very differently One chip might do 5 GHZ on 1.3 volts and another might struggle to get 4.5 with the same voltage. It is all about the trial and error, altering one setting at a time then testing. Good luck.

All you bios settings are correct. What do you mean that 4.7ghz does not correctly show? Have you put the CPU under load w/ P95?

What's your full load Vcore in CPU-z?

Alright back with some good news, I got everything working now but I still have a few questions

What voltage is considered safe? What voltage should I not pass?

Also in the CPUZ core speed it only stays at 1599.63MHz why isn't it changing to the 4.5?
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

edit; I hit about 84C on 4.6Ghz using about 1.4v (this was on prime 100% everything), should I turn down the overclock?

That temperature is fine. Usually for Ivy, you will want the CPU to stay under 90c while stressing on prime 95. How long did you run P95 for?

To add to what lucky23 said..

Just a pointer smile.gif Your board is well known to under report voltage : http://www.overclock.net/t/1360404/asrock-z77-series-vcore-reading.

As in CPUz and BIOS will say 1.4 volts but if you put a DMM on the VRMs it will actually be at say 1.45 volts.

Having said that most places I've seen don't recommend you go over 1.35 volts on air. YMMV some people buy a new chip every gen and just juice the hell out of whatever they get, others like me are a bit more conservative.

Also wondering what program you are using to measure temperatures, 84 c at 1.4 volts on a D15 (although it is one of the very best air coolers) is very low, unless you are in a cold garage or something? Prime 95 if you are running the blend tests gets hottest around 15-30 mins into the test.

I get nearly 90 max on a cooler reviewed to be as good as yours at 1.328v 4.4 in Prime with a 22c room ambient, and I have a very good fan setup.

I've been running my (dog) 3570k since September 2012 at varying levels of load voltage from 1.328 @4.4, 4.3 at 1.272 and also at 4.2 @ 1.224 depending on the weather. To give you an idea, although to be fair I have stressed it quite a lot in its life Folding@home, handbrake, gaming, this week I've had to add a notch of Vcore because I stated to get flash player crashes and noticed WHEA errors which I didnt have before.
