So, I have an i5 3570k and a Sabertooth z77. I updated the BIOS today, and then I tried to overclock from 3,4GHz to 4,2GHz. But when I place the number 42 on the multiplier, and press enter, it comes back to 34. Any ideas on how to solve this problem?

What tool/ utility are you using to find the actual clock values?

I have disabled all power saving settings. Speedstep, C1 and so on. I could try to change the boost multiplier if it was there. It isn't. I have activated the turbo boost, but the BIOS won't show the turbo boost clocks.

Make sure you change the Overclock Tuner setting (I think that's the name on the Sabertooth) to Manual or XMP - that'll expose the turbo multiplier settings. And you don't need to disable the power saving, they work just fine with Ivy overclocking.

So if you change the AI Overclock Tuner setting (on the AI Tweaker page) to Manual, it doesn't open up two options underneath - BCLK and Turbo Ratio? If it does change Turbo Ratio to Manual, then you should be able to change it. If not, can you post a screenshot of the AI Tweaker page - maybe they changed something in the BIOS.

Well, when I change the AI Overclock Tuner setting to manual or XMP, only the BCLK options shows up, but the turbo boost clocks keep hidden. I'll take a screenshot right away.

There we go:

Enable EIST in the CPU Power Management page - your second screenshot - and that'll expose the turbo multipliers. If you have it disabled, like you do, they won't show. You have to have EIST and Turbo mode both enabled.

I set it to enabled and nothing has changed. The clocks won't show up. This never happened before. I'll check that manual for asus motherboards.

Edit: I did everything right as the manual tell us to do, but nothing changed. The turbo clocks won't show up. And the Internal PLL Overvoltage option won't show up either.

Yes, I am. When I change the number from 34 to 42 (anything above that gets extremely hot), it automatically goes back to 34.

K I was just trying to make sure, I am running on hour 22 of my 24 hour stability test or I would putz around with mine and try to help you figure it out. The link I put up in the earlier will have all the settings you need, That's what got me going, was hoping it could help you too. Make sure you open all the pluses, if you follow them and it still is not working then, i don't think i have enough knowledge about it to assist you. I am fairly new to this Rodeo.

Well, I don't think this is related to my problem, but there is a red LED close to my RAM memories. I tried pressing the MemOkay button close to the memories, but the LED won't turn off.

Here's what's going to seem like a really stupid question- Does the BIOS identify the CPU as a i5-3570K ? Is it possible you got an i5-3570 (non-k) or maybe the BIOS is mis-identifying it?

I have a 3570k. I've been able to overclock it by messing with the multipliers. But I'm not sure if the BIOS is mis-identifying my processor. Gotta check that out.

Edit: The BIOS clearly says 3570k.
