The good news is the second 3770k just shipped today so hopefully I will have that tomorrow. I really hope that one is better.

I said I would not go above 1.75V, this is the highest I can get on this CPU.
Aren't you supposed to put 1500 miles on it before you go full speed?

I'm on my phone app right now, so its hard to see. I do see that the label wording is a little funny. I'll look again when I'm back at my rig to see if I'm missing something.

uhmm I guess they started making transparent covers so the chips will go through once you have it installed the cover magicly reappears
The label is not right for this socket cover, the picture on the label is the right one. This label is for the cover that goes on the CPU retainer, not for the one that fits inside the socket, as my example is. Here is what the cover should be for that label, nipped the pic from Newegg.

Thanks, it's not going well so far, I must have over tightened one of the screws last time, it is just spinning in the plastic backplate so I can't get the cooler off.

I've done it Paul. I use a pair of needle-nosed pliers to hold the nut from the backside while turning the screw. Be careful you can gouge the board with the pliers or screwdriver. Finger tighten only too.
After it's off try my super glue trick I posted earlier. Give it an hour to cure.
