**Post Your 24/7 Prime Blend Stable Ivy Bridge Chip**

|*Please make sure you read the RULES BEFORE submitting*|

**This thread is not for discussing safe Temps / Voltages for Ivy Bridge**

PLEASE READ

I take NO responsiblity for the headache / stress / anxiety / emotional discomfort etc lol that this may cause when trying to overclock and stabalize your cpu, this is a lenthy process which requires a lot of patience. If your not upto the task, then this thread may not be for you.

This is not an EASY club to join!!!

On that note, any damage, degradetion that you may encounter through stress testing or SUICIDE RUNS is your responsiblity and your responsiblity alone.

So you have been WARNED, other than that enjoy your 100% stable system and also have fun getting it there!!!

If you find there is a mistake or anthing that needs to be changed then either PM me / mrtoyotaco or PCWargamer. Also suggestions on how to make this thread better will be greatly appreciated. Big thank you to mrtoyotaco and PCWargamer for helping out and keeping this thread going, They too will be helping to make sure the both tables are updated accordingly.

Rules

One last thing, PLEASE read the small print between each RULE

1. 12 HOURS+* STANDARD BLEND or CUSTOM BLEND with UPTO 80/90% of YOUR AVAILABLE RAM* used with Prime95 v27.7

***Check with task manager/performance tab/physical memory for how much AVAILABLE RAM you have, to do Custom BLEND, JUST change the amount of RAM from 1600 to 90% of your available***

***Prime FFT Length Info: Shad0wfax kindly pointed out the importance of running longer than 12hours HERE***

***All workers must be visible (hit the windows tab between options and help in prime and select tile)***

2. MUST have a screenie WHILE UNDER LOAD with your OCN name (notepad etc), Batch Number of your CPU, CPU-Z 1.60.1+ and REALTEMP 3.70+*!!

***REALTEMP must show the duration of how long it's running, minimum of 12hours same as Prime95 like THIS!!!***

3. LIST YOUR COOLING (notepad etc) and provide screenie of RAM, VOLTAGE, MOBO INFO via cpu-z and TASK MANAGER*

***TASK MANAGER only if your running custom blend, make sure you show Prime95 process.***

4. Must have a mild overclock 4ghz+

All submissions must follow a similar template like this!!!!
(This is mine before a few rules got amended)

IF YOU ANY PROBLEMS WITH THESE RULES PM ME OR POST IT HERE

Stability is hugely subjective, for example leaving a 20/30 tabs open and playing bfbc2 with fraps will surely drain the available RAM, that for someone could be everday usage.

Taking that into account I find that being able to stay stable for scenerio's like that, decreases your chances of getting any kind of bsod, therefore 'MORE' stability, which might be overkill to some but desirable for plenty of people.

On that note, those that have passed the blend run at 1600mb are stable for how they run their rig, for example, gaming 24/7 bfbc2 with no problems, however, it 'may' not be stable for high ram usage scenerio's which could be unlikely for some as they won't be running fraps and have 20/30 tabs open in the background because that's not how they run their rig.

Once you have done a 12hour+ blend whether it be custom or standard blend, I'm pretty sure there won't be a need to run it again and you might not get a bsod that relates to unstability of your overclock but then again you might because as you know overclocking and stress testing is not a guarantee.

There will ALWAYS be different opinons about this whole stability issue.

This is JUST the stable club, whether you go for, a standard blend or a custom blend you should be stable for what you use it for, stability is stability for your own use. If standard doesn't work for you, then go ahead and do a custom blend, that's the way I see it.

This is the stable thread, that's means general stability and extreme stability, both are included, however those with 8gb+ should really want to be using custom blend rather than normal blend (1600mb) which not only stresses the RAM and CPU but also the IMC of the chip which is important for stability.

BUT ITS TOTALLY UPTO YOU!!! - I personally recommend custom blend with upto 90% of your available RAM!!!

**Post Your Ivy Bridge Suicide / Benchmark run**

Rules

1. CPU-Z Frequency (maximum overclock) will only be accepted with cpu-z validation link.

2. Superpi / wPrime runs will be accepted via HWbot validation or if OCN name is present in the screenshot (watermark your screenshots!!).

3. Memory Frequency (max Dram overclock) will only be accepted with cpu-z validation link.

4. PLEASE provide as much info as possible!!! Amount of RAM, what cooling (LN2 or water etc), CPU Batch Number, Motherboard used, and voltage for both CPU and RAM. ALL CPU-Z Validations must be made with OCN username!!!!!!

IF YOU ANY PROBLEMS WITH THESE RULES PM ME OR POST IT HERE

MicroCenter didn't do the combo deal for a Z77 mobo. I got a 3770K for my Z68.. maybe not a good idea?

LLC: disabled
Offset: +0.005v

I thought that would give me something near default vcore.

But it's like this:
VID: 1.25v
Idle: 1.16v
Load: 1.20v

VID does not change with multi unless LLC is enabled.

update:
I've gotten three dawwgged IB's, that's all. The last one isn't anything much either (4550MHz, 1.27v). I'll just keep buying the OC plan at the store, I guess.

Will post my result soon since I'm giving it some times to get familiar with the system before pushing it further

Look forward to it. Hope this thread will be as successful as the Sandy Stable club, however there is a lot more to do in this one and I may require assistance, therefore If anyone is prepared to help maintain this thread, please PM me, more specifically in regards to the sucide / benchmark section.

I've got a P8Z77 V-PRO and no one has posted any guides for this mobo... damn too complicated for me to understand

Watch this video. Pretty much almost all you need to know.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4mkGQhE1o2w&feature=g-all-u

Really informative and make sure to watch the whole thing.

I am running 4.5ghz right now and it took me about 20 mins - didn't even use the auto tune.

I don't want to push my CPU too much so I will stay only at 4.5Ghz and test the Vcore and temperature.

Currently prime95 3570k @ 4.5Ghz Vcore 1.32V

Idle ~45*C
Full load 81-85*C

Outside temperature ~28*C

(just some mini report, will post entry when everything is in good shape

Sounds like you either have a bad chip or a bad motherboard. Shouldn't need that much voltage for 4.5ghz especially on an i5. I've got my i7 3770k rock solid @ 4.5ghz w/1.2 core.

Update your bios or something maybe?

I'm using Asus P8Z68-V/GEN3 with the latest BIOS.

In fact,I don't really care much if my CPU bad or not. I just need it to be stable at acceptable temperature and vcore, don't need to be good

In the past, I've never had a "good" CPU. Most of them are hotter and need more vcore than other people's CPU. But it still serve me until the day I sell it

Btw, my CPU PLL volt is 1.8V. Is this normal or should be lower around 1.5V?

1.8 is the default for the 3770k, so maybe the default is the same for the 3570k.
