    Overclock i5 3570K + MSI Z77A GD65 Gaming

    It's pulling a good core speed/voltage in my opinion but it was the heat issues that makes me think it wasn't a good chip. I can only get 4.8@1.288v now with it delidded, lapped and with a H100i with 4 Corsair SP120's on it in Push/Pull config. Before with my pervious cooler the temperatures...

    Overclock i5 3570K + MSI Z77A GD65 Gaming

    That's grim, man. What cooling are you using and what temps are you getting under full load?

    Overclock i5 3570K + MSI Z77A GD65 Gaming

    You managed 1.232v on the stock fan? That's pretty incredible. I have my chip down to 1.288v @ 4.8GHz now, the chip I received wasn't really a 'good' one.

    Overclock i5 3570K + MSI Z77A GD65 Gaming

    My 3570k was pulling 4.6ghz @ 1.300v with a max temp of 78. Now with the H100i and SP120 fan set up its 4.8ghz@1.288v (My system specs need updated.)and down to 38-45 on full load. I would highly recommend delidding the chip and changing the thermal compound between the die and the IHS, I seen a...

    Mornin' all. Long term lurker here from glorious Belfast. Using flight controlls in ARMA2 is great, so much handier than using the Kb/Mouse but unless you're doing specific missions packs involving planes it's a bit redundant having those clamped to your desk all the time. Also -...

    How to fix version of PCIe 16x slot?

    Hey Law, I gave that a try this morning whilst I was off work. Still no joy with it. I cranked up the clocks and ran a burn-in test while I monitored the temps and didn't see anything out of the ordinary. Perhaps you do? Thanks.

    How to fix version of PCIe 16x slot?

    Haha, this isn't my first build :p Cheers for the advise guys, I'll get back to you once I quit playing ArmA2 for 5 minutes and get a go at reseating this card and blowing out the ports etc.

    How to fix version of PCIe 16x slot?

    Yeah it's saying 'PCI-E 3.0x16 @ x8 3.0' when it should be saying 'PCI-E 3.0x16 @ x16 3.0'

    How to fix version of PCIe 16x slot?

    Yeah I'm the guy with the 16x problem :P It's in the top slot, all by itself on the board. I'm even using onboard sound at he moment whilst my card is being RMA'd.

    How to fix version of PCIe 16x slot?

    Regarding my little issue, I tried underclocking my CPU and lowering the voltage to give it max stability and ran that test on GPU-Z. I ran it for 15 minutes in both full-screen and in the windowed mode and nothing changed. Any ideas?

    How to fix version of PCIe 16x slot?

    Hey, thanks for the response. I didn't want to clutter up the nVidia section for such a small query but I shall in future. I updated my BIOS there last week due to my Video Card hanging on boot and whilst I done that I installed the latest Intel driver package from Guru3D's website. THe...

    How to fix version of PCIe 16x slot?

    I've a symilar question, I hope you don't mind if I just ask here. I have my Gigabyte GTX770 4GB plugged into my 16x PCI-E slot yet in the Nvidia Inspector program its says ''16x PCI-E (@8x PCI-E)''. I'm taking a wild guess that my card is running at 8x? Any ideas how to rectify this...

    Gigabyte GTX770 4GB boot / graphic problems.

    Hey, I bought a Gigabyte GTX770 4GB Windforce 3 graphics card when I was in the states a couple of weeks ago and since installing it it has made my PC hang on boot. It happens straight away as soon as I press the button then after exactly 90 seconds it throws up a glitched BIOS boot-screen logo...

    Decided to take a hammer to a 4770k

    I didn't bother. I used the Noctua paste and then just clamped the cooler on nice a tight. There's very, very little movement when it's clamped.
