Yep as Steve says, just needs to be stable long enough to validate

Modest beginnings:

The Z77 OC Formula has something called Nick Shih's Profiles built in that you can just select to OC.

This is Step 0.

You gotta start somewhere pillian, and that gets you nicely onto the leaderboards

One thing I will say is though pillian, at the voltage it's already running for your 3.9GHz, you could quite easily run 4.2-4.4GHz, maybe 4.5GHz.
You could certainly drop it down a fair bit for 3.9GHz maybe to 1.15v or 1.2v

Well I got the voltage as high as I could to stay under 60 degrees in this hot British weather, which happened to be 1.4250 V. I have no idea about RAM timings, ratios and latencies so I just put core clock at 212 and multiplier at 20. Got me this reasonably stable clock:

It runs games and apps perfectly stable, never goes above 50 degrees in everyday tasks (its not like CPU is at 100% load all the time) so I'm happy keeping it at this clock

Hi guys,

I seem to have run into a problem with my Z77 OC Formula motherboard.

As you know, I am now running my CPU OC'ed to 3900 MHz and my RAM OC'ed to 1866 MHz.

Now the problem I am having is that no matter what changes I make in the BIOS, they are limited to the BIOS itself.

The BIOS saves any changes I make to CPU speed, voltage, etc, and acts as though those are the active values.

However, when I boot into Windows, I see only the old settings for CPU & RAM speed and voltage.

For eg:
I have the BIOS set to Nick Shih's OC Stage 1 (4000MHz, 40 multiplier - these changes are automatically made when the profile is selected), and CPU voltage offset -0.020V from the stock 1.224.
- BIOS displays these changes
- Windows (CPU-Z and any other tool I use) see CPU speed at the old 3900MHz and voltage at 1.224

The same thing goes with the RAM. I can set a speed, timing and voltage in BIOS, but that change stays in BIOS - it does not reflect in Windows.

What is happening here?
