Were they all similar problems, or were they different?

Different issues, don't ask which had what though. No POST unless defaults set, on chip video not working, dead PCIe Slot, BIOS settings reverting back, unable to run RAM at stock speeds, I think that covers them.

This was all high end equipment and I won't accept less than perfect. Either BIOSes need to catch or maybe the Z87 chipset has some inherent flaws that Intel isn't admitting to yet.

That's a shame. Of all the problems Haswell had right out of the gate, and then issues with the platform itself cropping up......you have to wonder if Intel has anything they want to say for themselves. With all the advancements Haswell had to offer, I wondered if it would cause problems in the long run. I think you'll have a good experience with Ivy Bridge.....unless you have the worst luck in the world lol.

I may be wrong, but I think they had some issues with early Z68 boards and paid for a huge recall of them. Between me and Steve's pissy luck all the rest of you should be safe.

Paul I would like to try one of the Ivy E CPUs, if I can use your money. I reckon they should do at least as well as the Sandy E's.

Yeah, there were some early Sandy Bridge boards with problems that Intel came out and owned up to. Intel isn't flawless, but you can always bet that they try to make it right as soon as it's feasible....I'll give them that. Also, I wouldn't step up to IB-E unless I was going with the 6-core CPU.

Me and you both Gary! There's only a handful of reasons to go with the -Extreme platform, and I don't have any of those reasons lol.

Thank you essenbe, i bookmarked the thread for the long reading.

I'm actually able to low the Vcore a bit (4.2MHz => 1.128v) with no Whea-logger warnings & BSOD since 24h.

I'm expecting a lot of those stable settings that would permit my Cpu & Card to reach higher OC'ing.

A lot of people don't pay any attention to them.And I know software will give you false readings. My P67 Asrock board had slews of them. It took me a couple of months of trying everything until I finally figured out real Temp gave WHEA errors and insisted that all cores shut down, which never happened. But, if you are legitmately having them, keep raising the Vcore.

I got a new 3770K today and want to know what you guys think.
