Hi I have the same cpu and mobo you got. You can get to 4.3 without tweaking any voltage. Everything is different once you go above 4.3. I'm currently on 4.4 ghz.
can you post your PC specs and your cpu voltages and temps
i5-3570k @ 4.4ghz +0.005 offset and +0.004 turbo voltage. It kinda gets stable @ 1.288 volts. Kinda high, below that I get bsod and WHEA logger. I guess I didn't won the silicon lottery.
Asrock pro3 z77 rev 1.9
windows 8 pro 64 bit
G.skill Ripjaws x 2x4gb 1600mhz
Antec HCG-620m 620w 80 plus bronze
1tb seagate barracuda
128gb vertex 4 ocz
Asus HD 7850 2gb oc'd 980/4840 @ 1085volts
I'm still playing around with it though.
At full load with prime95, my temps stays around 70C to 80~ish C.
Kinda high for temps since my ambient temperature here is 30~ish C. hottest is 36C and it's a room temp. Summer here in ASIA.
I'm using hyper 612 pwm cooler master as my cpu cooler. It's fat but theoretically, I believe that copper based cooler are always better than none copper.
