Here's some info about what you can do with ThrottleStop:
BSOD codes for overclocking
0x101 = increase vcore
0x124 = increase/decrease QPI/VTT first, if not increase/decrease vcore...have to test to see which one it is
on i7 45nm, usually means too little VVT/QPI for the speed of Uncore
on i7 32nm SB, usually means too little vCore
0x0A = unstable...

Hello XtremeSystems :D
I've looked around the web, and all of the mainstream sites have overclocking guides of some sort, but they're a bit too tame for an user who REALLY wants to learn how to push their system the XS way :D
I've spent a lot of time over the last few months writing,...

Title says it all, I got hold of a new i5 3570k for ?150 (tray, no useless packaging and stock HSF, w00t!) to replace my dying / dead i5 2500k. First impressions are excellent.
i5 3570k stats: As reported in UEFI
Idle Voltage: 0.97v
Idle temp: 29.5c (panel off) 32c (panel on)
This is what I got Picked it up from microcenter for 189 :up: Can get 4.2 on 1.4 vcore but Im scared to push the 45nm to high.

So I can get either a 3930k or a 3770k really cheap, however if I go with the 3930k I have to upgrade my mobo to x79 (currently have a Asus Maximus IV Extreme-Z). Another option would be to go with haswell and sell my board and 3570k when it comes out and upgrade to a 4770k and another option is to...
Since IB was officially released yesterday I suppose it is time for a new third gen chip/batch discussion thread...
i5 3770K: batch#3208C060
Cooling is under water with an XSPC RX240... ambient temp ~21C. This sample seems to do 45x with ~1.212v load, 46x with ~1.250/1.260v load and 47x with...
Which brand would you buy? Price is not a factor.
I had a RAID 5 with 3 x 500GB harddisks (SATA) on a Gigabyte P35-DQ6 crash and sent it on a RMA and got it back today but they couldn't find anything wrong with the motherboard but they tested with one ATA harddisk and it ran through stresstest and windows xp installed fine and have now returned...

Saw this today an I have to say, I am a bit worried about this move and the overclocking potential of Haswell. Lets hope this new voltage regulator is controllable. what do you guys think?

Most of you know what Linpack is I guess. In case you don't, it's a benchmark designed to measure performance on Intel CPUs in GFlops. But it's also a very useful tool for checking the stability of a CPU.
Now back on topic. :) A short pretty long now :) while ago I wrote a small graphical...
This is the master thread to list RIVE reviews, BIOS updates and so on.
i have a fx8120 at 4.4 i do video encodeing how much of a speed boost do you think i would see if got the 3770k and clocked it to 4.4? thank you
Well, seeing as I should be one of the first to have a retail version of this board I thought I should create this thread. My board was shipped from motherboardpro on 8/9/07 and should be arriving shortly next week. I'll post pics and overclocks with my Q6600 G0 once I set it up.
If any of the...
I wiped off the original TIM and then replaced it with Artic Silver to see how much of a difference a change of TIM would make.
Before removing the IHS the temperature was 79 degrees and now the temperature is down to 71
but it should be much better cz theoretically the performance of the Arctic...
Picked this 3770k up at Microcenter for $230. I searched but haven't found any overclocking #'s on this yet. Guess I'll find out soon enough.
Have just got my MaximusIV-Extreme and i wanted to know whats the latest bios! Currently on bios 0406!
As the tile says
Rampage IV first 16X PCI-express slot only works @8x instead of @16x reported by GPU-Z & CPU-Z
New board and video card.

Things that I have checked:
The other slots are empty.

Guys i have problem with my mobo ( i suppose ):
I make today some test with my brand new 3570k. Everything was ok until I wanted to go back to the factory settings. I cant set cpu to stock multiplier.
When i go to bios everything is set ok, but in os ( win7 64bit ) i have 41x
I'm thinking about upgrading my RAM and searching for the new sticks I learnt that Ivy's IMC voltage is 1.5 rather than previous 1.65V.
Has anybody experienced any kind of degradation due to 24/7 RAM OC using more than 1.5V?
I'd like to keep my CPU for a few more years so if there's a real...
Title says most of it. My stalwart i5 2500k has recently developed a fault (random lockups and BSODs even at stock, tested on 3 different boards and the CPU does the same) so the question now is how to destroy it? I had considered death by JCB wrench and death by blowtorch, but I figured I would...
Yesterday I was testing some new hard disks on my oldie maximus v gene (june 2012) when i connect my SSD again (force gt 120) the system can boot but i can not enter the bios still freeze on CODE 99.... i change sata cables of place, I try without any sata,I use Rog bios usb flashback in many...

So for 2 years I've ran my system at 4500/1.45 vcore and the memory at 1800/1.6v with temps always in the @ 38-48C range. recently(last 30 days) the system has been hard resetting (no BSOD at all) and increasingly doing so to where now the system doesn't last 5-10 mins.
I tried dialing the...
I always used Arctic Silver 5 for many years now however I happen to have a new CPU and I have some Arctic Cooling MX-4 so I am happy to try that.
I wanted to ask though two things, one: from what I have read there is not much difference between this and arctic silver 5 so I do nto need...
