I7 3770k overclocking problem

hi, when i overclocked my i7 3770k and set the voltage to 1.45 the system worked well but the games like bf 3 and spec ops the line stoppeds working error , i dont know if the problem came from the overclocking or not .

  1. How big an overclock and are you testing for stability before running games?
  2. my spec : asus sabertooth z77
    8gb ram g.skill sniper 1866
    nocuta nh d14
    my overclock is to 4.9 with 1.45 v . and i dont want to use prime 95 for stability because it burn the cpu
  3. Then you do not know that you have a stable overclock until you run programs and apparently you don't. Back it of some you might be burning up the CPU.
  4. is 72 celisus temp high for ivy bridge when overclocking to 4.9
  5. on air even with the noctua you may be better backing of to 4.5ghz or so

    heres the thg review of overclocking the 3770k on air

  6. 4.9 GHz with 1.45 Volts is really pushing things to the limit. Try backing off both the voltage and the speed a bit, and things should stabilize.
  7. 72°C is high in normal use! As said before back it down it is not stable if it can't launch programs.

    That's a little to much for the cooler your using and the voltage is too high for my tastes as well.
    I can and have run 4.9 with 1.3v, but i'm also running a corsair h100 in my system.
    I run my system at 4.7 with 1.3v 24/7 no problems at all.
  9. i can overclock it to 4.7 ghz with 1.35v with full stability
  10. how you get 4.9 with 1.3volt that is impossible earl45

    Now just because you can't do it, doesn't mean it can't be done

    here's the impossible for you.
  12. but it crushes when i do this overclocking to 4.9 with 1.3v and why all cores is locked
    why you use speed step ,

    When i'm encoding or playing games I want all core overclocked not just one.
  14. tell me please how i get this overclock with this voltage step by step , i dont know how to get this overclock and how to get all cores locked

    Try this change BCLK frequency from 100.5 to 100.0, then change the CPU voltage from
    1.070 to 1.3 voltage.
    Click into the CPU ratio, check the lock box and adjust to 4700, apply then save the settings.
    All of this will be done inside AI TurboV EVO.

    Every CPU is different, there is no guarantee that what one person manages to do with his CPU can be duplicated on yours.

    BTW, you are likely to fry your 3770k very quickly at 1.45V.

    Totally agree with you on frying the cpu at that voltage.
  18. i overclocked it now to 4.9 with 1.45v and i thought it is not high voltage because there is reviews that overclocked this chip with higher voltage check this :http://www.techspot.com/review/523-ivy-bridge-intel-core-i7-3770k/page9.html , http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gNpjx2qqZ2c

    i dont use this overclock all the day i used it only while playing games like skyrim , prototype 2 , bf 3 multiplayer . i know that you are right about high temp about some programs like cinbench 11.5 and aida 64 the temp was about 82 celisus and this is because the cpu core usage is 100% and all the processors will have high temp but not like ivy bridge . . check this yo see that i7 3930k have extreamly high temp + 90 digree : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gCj0VQ7wsCk&feature=related . and that because cinbench uses all cores 100% .

    Just because someone did for a limited time just to find the maximum possible overclock on their specific CPU it does not mean that it is safe to do so. Even at 1.35V I would have doubts about the CPU's life expectancy.

    Just out of curiosity why in the hell would you need 4.9ghz to play ANY game??!! :pfff: Out of all the games you mentioned only one of them are somewhat cpu dependant, and that being Skyrim. With my 2600k i only need 4ghz to get to the point where my FPS hit a wall and the game no longer becomes cpu bound but GPU bound at a solid 60 fps. And that's with Vsync enabled to prevent screen tearing on a 60 hz monitor.

    I'm not sure the reason you need 4.9 ghz other than bragging rights or other programs. But you surely do not need it for gaming. So if you're overclocking and overvolting that cpu to that level every time you run a game the only thing your doing is shortening the lifespan of the cpu. Quite significantly I might add with the insane voltage you're running through that thing. I can tell you putting 1.45V thorough an IVY bridge is not a good idea to do for hours at a time with the cooling method you use. That's even pushing a Sandy Bridge. Plus it's not even logical in your situation.

    I suggest back off a bit. Use a cpu dependent game like "Skyrim". Put it at the max settings your card can handle and start upping your clocks in 100 mhz increments until you get a solid "60" or "120" fps depending on the refresh rate of your monitor. Once you hit that wall where upping the clock speed on the CPU fails to produce improved results stick it there and leave it. Pretty much every other game with the exception of a few will be limited by your GPU. In which case unless you're running quad SLI GTX 570 or above will have no need for such a high OC.

  22. you are right bigj1985 , idont need this overclock this chip to 4.9 , i will overclock it to 4.7 with 1.35 like this : http://www.legitreviews.com/article/1924/3/ , but you said quad sli gtx 570 or more :lol: . is there more than quad sli ? :pt1cable:

    It should be theoretically possible to have quad dual-GPU boards, which would effectively make it octuple SLI. I doubt things would scale that far too well.

    Na bro what I meant by "more" is more powerful GFX cards. I wasn't at all trying to be condescending so please don't think I was. I just want you to realize you are putting so much stress on that processor that's not needed at all. Good luck and have fun; just be careful.
  25. i understand you , you mean the stronger video card you have , the faster and more clock cpu you must get ,
