i5 3570k --- i7 3770k


Ivy Bridge is FINALLY here!! Those of us who have decided to jump right in and buy a new Ivy Bridge CPU (amidst all of the negative reports) can use this thread to discuss and compare our new chips!

REQUIRED TO JOIN

Please use this form to self-enter yourself into the club!
A CPU-Z Validation link is still required and the user it is published from must be the same as your OCN username!

In order to join the Ivy Bridge Owners' Club, you must enter all the required information in the form that meets the following requirements!

You MUST have a batch number for your CPU. This can be found on a printed label on the outside of the retail box that your CPU came in. It is also printed on the IHS (integrated heat sink) on the top of the chip. The batch number will start with either the letter ' L' or the number '3'.

It is also required that you validate your OC result using the CPU-Z validator. If you have internet on the rig you're OCing, simply click "Validate" button in bottom of CPU-Z window to open CPU-Z Validation window. Then hit "Submit" button in 'Online Mode' section of CPU-Z Validation window. You can also click "Save Validation File" in 'Manual Mode' section of the CPU-Z Validation Window. This will save a file for you to manually submit to the online validator.
Make sure that CPUZ is showing the OC speed of you CPU when you click "validate". For those of you who do not disable the CPU C-states, real-time ratio changes in the OS, thermal response, etc. and your CPU changes multiplier while in the OS, you need to make sure your CPU is under sufficient load to run at full speed. Otherwise your CPUZ validation will only show an underclocked frequency. (If you still have problems figuring out how to validate CPU-Z, use google to learn how)

TO UPDATE YOUR INFO
To update your MAX OC in the spreadsheet after you have already been added to the list, please make a post in this format:
A post is still required to update your max OC!

I might as well jump on this thread. I'm not going to copy/paste everything from my original thread, but I'll link to it instead.

Bought 3770k at Canadacomputers for $369.99 CAD on the 27th.

Short version:

i7 3770k
GB Z77X-UD5H
CM Hyper 212 Evo
G.Skill Ripjaws Z 16GB 4x4 1600mhz

4.5Ghz HT on @ 1.2v - Approx 70-75C Prime95, 75-80 Linx/IBT
4.6Ghz HT on @ 1.24v - Approx 75-80C Prime95, 80-85 Linx/IBT
4.7Ghz HT on @ 1.275v - Approx 80-85C Prime95, 85-92 Linx/IBT
4.8Ghz HT off @ 1.3 - Approx 77-82C Prime95, N/A Linx/IBT

The 4.5Ghz was run for 12+ hours P95.
The 4.6Ghz was run for 8+ hours P95.
The 4.7Ghz was not run for longer than 20 minutes. (Not fully tested yet)
The 4.8Ghz was not run for longer than 20 minutes. (Not fully tested yet)

Hope this helps / inspires!

Well, it's on the way. Looks like I'm the owner. Good-bye AMD, you have a good run.

very nice! I see you dropped your PLL a lot! I was thinking that would be a good way to help lower the heat of these chips.

Moving PLL from 1.5 to 1.8 did not raise temps at all for me. Maybe 1-2C during Linx/IBT.

No. That is exactly the reason why I buy it from Tigerdirect. Newegg, NCIX, and Microcenter all charge sales tax in California. Amazon is too expensive.
Only thing about this is Microcenter is $60 cheaper and you can get 5% off If you sign up for their ads and become a part of there rewards program. So if you go to microcenter today you can walk out with a 3750K $164 after tax and have it today. As long as you sign up for the rewards program.
Edit : nm just noticed its no $159.99 I don't know why I though it was $159.99

Unfortunately I don't have Microcenter nearby, gas price alone negates the savings.

No, and yes. The only real difference is a lower TDP and 22nm.

Related to the thread, I just ordered my new Ivy Bridge rig parts this morning after selling my Fully Watercooled X58 rig, was too much overkill for me. mATX mid range from now.

Was going to go X79, then realised that that too would be overkill. Was going to go with Sandybridge, but I thought I may as well wait for Ivy as it was only a week or so away, glad I did.

So it didn't live up to its hype then? I'll stick with my SB build then thank you for the response
