    Nice will bne working with the Z77 soon and a 3770T I hear they are very good clocking systems now unlike these Z68 series.

    Best find the MAX mutli on that 2700K then work the BCLK for more!!

    Good Luck

    Wow! That's some impressive overclocking.

    I note CPU-Z reads a core voltage of 1.716 V on the 2700k, can you explain this?

    That 2500k would be a dream chip if it were suitable for 24/7 use. ~1.45vcore is awesome for 50 multi. I dream of a chip that can do 5+GHz on 1.4 vcore or less. Still, you highlight just how impressive these CPU's really are and I thank you for your effort. 24/7 use is all about managing the temps - always a limiting factor for me!

    The 2700k is tidy at 5.3GHz. Nice.

    I was pressed for time running the 2700K and should have worked it more but it required ALOT of LLC the actual Vcore in the bios was I beleive 1.66v at the time to reach a stable 5.3+ which was kinda bad!! Had I had more time Im sure I could have worked a few other settings to get to a lower Vcore and less LLC.

    I have the 1500K and will be selling it after some work on the Z77 series :)

    Thanks

    no 3dmark11 for the 2700k?

    I'm looking to move to 2600k/2700k from my 2500k. Would of been nice to see the score difference @ roughly the same clocks :p

    Do you mind if I ask what OC settings / method you used? Did you do manual vcore with LLC or V droop?

    I've had difficulties OC'ing this board recently :(

    I never use any OS OC programs always bios OC :)

    I used the following but each chip is different so keep that in mind!

    PPL up to- 1.86
    VTT up to- 1.35
    LLC- MED to High
    Dram V- 1.7 max

    The memory might need some volts as I found it does help the OC!

    Easy on the LLC as it tends to up the Vcore fast! watch heat cool will get you higher of course.

    Best I remember as I just switched out to the MSI Z77A-GD65 which I was able to reach a 106 BCLK but stable 103 BLK :)

    Will put up a post on that board now!

    Thanks

    TurnnBurn, do you mind doing a 3dmark 11 run with the 2700k at the same speeds as the 2500k please? :)

    Here's hoping for a high clocker! :D
