Have you tried running Prime 95 and see what it says?

I assume by 'the board' you are referring to the leaderboards AddRam? They should be visible in post number 2 and in every page for the last few pages. I will post them again in my next post below this.

Here they are AddRam, if you cannot see them then you might need to try a different browser as everyone else can see them.

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?
I have no idea what this Nick Shih's OC stuff is pillian, I would steer well clear of it to be honest. I have the same CPU as you, try this instead, set the multi to 45 for all cores (this will give you an OC of 4.5GHz) and set the offset to + 0.010 and see how you go. This should be stable and you should be able to drop the offset a bit lower but lets see how it goes first.

It sounds like this Nick Shih's OC is a load of crap and is a preset which is not working and the system is rebooting due to it.

See if there is something here that can help you.

Ha!!
Back in the game.
How is this for a fresh start?

@paulpicks21:
It was a BIOS issue, causing settings to not stick.

Check out the voltage now (set automatically by BIOS), as compared to my previous 3900 post on the old BIOS.

BTW Nick Shih is a World Record holder on the 17 3770K.

@essenbe:
Thank you for that link. It helped immensely.
