I have asus p67 saber tooth b3 has served me great can take anything i throw at it. Recently i updated to a i7 3770k & i can barely get over 4.2ghz without blue screens. I've followed guides,updated bios & cooling is efficiency enough. Previously before i was running my older 2600k at 4.7ghz stable. My question is has anyone that's updated to ivy bridge on p67 came across any issues in overclocking.

I had this motherboard, and it actually responded really well to BIOS updates. I did not however have an Ivy Bridge in it. I had the same as you, a 2600K. My suggestion is to get some voltage to the CPU and work your voltage down instead of up, and make sure you have the latest BIOS installed.

Also, I know nobody believes this, but it still should be said: not all CPUs can overclock well. Overclocking is never guaranteed.

Thats what i thought as well i got a bad chip & these pass few hours i realize i had a few energy saving features on I disable them all. In the past this didn't cause me any issue maybe those features are built around sandy bridge chips. Ive been running OCCT for the pass 5 hours i7 3770k at 4.5ghz just updating if anyone come across any issues.

Why wont they believe. The process of making cpus makes them that way.. Every chip is unique
