So who has one of these and what is your max overclock? I've got mine on an H100i closed loop with 1.26v and 4.5 GHz for 24/7 use. It maxes out at 67C with prime95 or gaming which is pretty good. I've gotten as high as 4.8 GHz on 1.31v but haven't pushed higher yet since temps start creeping up after that point.

I do and it's 6.5 GHz max over clock on ln2. :)

SS is like 5.5 to 6.0 GHz depending on the test.

But I sold that chip to a friend. About to pick up another one later today.

Mine tops out around 4.8. Was hoping to do 5 ghz but just won't do it.

With Ivy your right at the WOW look at how much voltage I need to go up a stage. You need to be in the 1.5V range and up. This chip can run on 1.9V under ln2.

Had to go back and check... It's more like 5.4 ghz SS and 5.5 and up on ln2.

Did you finally up the volts or are you still only touching the multi? :P

I told him to crank up the volts... my 3820 is still alive after all my noobish abuse, hahahaha :D

I vote for popping off that IHS and putting on real water cooling to drop temps by ~25C. That alone should get you at least 100MHz at the same voltage.

Also that is a very good CPU if 1.31V @4.8GHz is stable.

Hmm, I'm thinking your gonna need a little work Brian. Im at 5.0 ghz now.

I got to 4.9 GHz using 1.5v but it was super unstable and any higher the board wouldn't post because it gave voltage warnings. I think this CPU just can't cut it with the h100i, gonna need real water cooling to pull it off. I'm starting to save up for my next big upgrades, namely the Caselabs Magnum SMH10 and custom water cooling setup with EK blocks.

You probably need to either change a bios setting or load a different default OC profile in the bios in order to get around these warnings.

Nope. Just disable voltage warning in bios. And you're done there. :)

Have any of you delidded? I'll be getting a 3770k soon, but have decided to delid it because it has been known to drop temps as much as ~20c. Almost seems necessary in order to push the highest clocks.

I haven't yet, I might when I build a custom wc loop.

If you ever decide on delidding use a Vice, I couldn't delid it with a razor but with a Vice I was able to easily.

Got any pics or what you did with the vice? And are you on water or air?

I got mine up to 4.5 stable but its a SFF mITX build so I couldn't sustain that due to heat buildup with the case closed. Are any of you using DDR3 over 2133mhz? I'm running DDR3 2800mhz but I had to push the VCCSA voltage to 1.2v-1.25v. I'm wondering how other peoples IMCs are holding up.

How is the 4.5ghz/1.26v holding up? I would imagine as long as you have a decent aftermarket cooler you could bump it up to 4.7ghz. Have you tried this yet?

I was using 2400mhz ram with my 3770K and had no problems. That was a great chip, it ran 4.6ghz at 1.9V. Bumping to 4.7 made me go up to 1.3V though..... sigh

1.9V? :D What was the actual value?

I dont have see any 3770k that goes on 5Ghz by Air cooled, so yes i think you need a water cooling system ;)

I have an I7-3770 (non K) overclocked and undervolted! It has a very low temperature!

My bios setting: multiplier 41X, Vcore offset -100mV.

The 22nm Intel IMHO are very undervolt friendly...

      hello everyone, I have a MSI GT683R with a dying (pretty much dead actually) GTX560M in it.
       
      I am looking to upgrade it to a new GPU, I have found a AMD Firepro M6100. (I first wanted to upgrade to a GTX970M, but that's too expensive for now... and corona is also making things difficult) I have already ordered a second heatsink to modify because I didn't want to modify the original heatsink it came with.
       
      But, my question is. Does it even work in this system? I have heard of people getting it to work in the barebone variant of this system. But I am not sure if it would work in the 'fully loaded' variant.
       
      Also, my games are mostly RAM/CPU dependent and I am looking for a little extra power in this system. I have found a I7-2860qm and I want to upgrade to 32GB of RAM, is it possible on this system? the sticker says 'max. 16GB of RAM' But I have feeling it says that due to the limitation of the cpu that's already on this system (I7-2630QM, 16GB RAM max.)

      It's locked & hidden by default, but I've got an i7 8700k & I'd like to use the intel graphic on my hackintosh mojave.
      Is there any way to activate or mod this?
      Thanks!

      The GPU works, The PSU works, The system works. [individually they all do work]
       
      The system works perfectly fine without the WLAN card.
       
      When i put the system to sleep and hotswap the mPCIe riser and WLAN press something on the keyboard.. Restarts.
      Will shutdown in roughly 27 seconds for those 27 seconds it works just fine like how it normally would on external monitor.
       
      When i shut it down and plug the riser and switch it on, same story. 27 seconds.
       
      I don't even see a error. I get to login screen directly. I used DDU already.
       
      I timed it. no matter what i do if i use the eGPU, External monitor it restarts instead of pause-play. I have 27 seconds.
       
      Need help!

      When my first CPU fan on Y500 is broke i replaced it on something compatible (non-original) and planned to replace it later on original. Since that time happened a lot things, but i still using that non-original fan. But i did some research and here is what i founded:
       
      I. ORIGINALS
       
      1. Forcecon (marked as FCN on fan)
      DFS5413005MH0T-FC1C (5V - 0.5A)
      Spotted in: Y400, Y500.

       
      2. Asia Vital Components (marked as AVC on fan)
      BNTA0612R5H-P007 (5V - 0.5A)
      Spotted in: Y410p, Y500, Y510p.

       
      3. Sunon (marked as SUNON MagLev on fan)
      MG60120V1-C230-S99 (5V - 2.25W (0.45A))
      Spotted in: Y410p, Y500.

      So, which to choose? Any recomendation? Maybe there also unexpected way (completely diffirent fan from another company for another laptop)?

      Evening, I own a Clevo P751DM2-G with a 7700k and for a while now i've been having issues with Intel's Extreme Tuning Utility. Everytime I run the program it states that there is a newer version on the Microsoft store and then continues to load. However once loaded it doesn't show the package temp, max core feq, core count or and of the other overclocking features. I've checked the Microsoft store and the Intel website and the version I have is the latest and the utility isn't even on the Microsoft store to download.
       
      Any advice would be great.
