    Default Emily please help me with a relentless error code 70

    Hi :),

    I just bought an Extreme4 Gen3 motherboard with a brand new 2500k. The heatsink is a cool master v8 and the TIM is ICdiamond.

    I have been trying to overclock the cpu all day and i can't go past 4.4 GHZ, no matter what i do o get error code 70 (southbridge) at boot. I did all the stress tests necessary at 4.4 GHZ and the CPU runs cool as ****, only going above 70C with the extreme intel burn test. I played around with the vcore and pll, disabled one thing or another but to no avail, if i go as much as 4.5 it won't let me boot.

    I have been looking online all day for a solution but i think i'm about to throw in the towel.

    I'd just like you to please let me know if there is anything i can do about it or if i just have to accept the 4.4 overclock and wait for a solution. I bought my system with a HAF X case and GTX 580 soc specifically for extreme OC purposes so I'm gutted i can't figure this out.

    If you help me i'll be very grateful.


    Oh and also thanks a lot for the 1.12 bios, i cant now use my blackadder keyboard in egui :)

    your vtt voltage might be too low with 1.047v,you can test anything between 1.047v to 1.2v max for sandybridge,vtt is for the memory controller inside the cpu

    whats your rams rated voltage? 1.5v or 1.65v? if 1.65v you need to set dram voltage to that,cold boot issues are usually ram related

    i tried a wide range of voltages as well. it seems that there is only one way to boot up over 4.4 GHZ.

    if i select auto turbo 50 and boot up at 4.8 then restart and select auto turbo 4.6 it will let me boot and do all the burn tests and it will all work fine for the day.

    However if i turn the PC off and start it again the next day it will give me error 70 until i reset the cmos and revert to 4.4.

    I tried going up as much as 1.49 fixed volts to try and start at 4.5 and no matter what i try to do manual overclocking will always result in a cold boot start over 4.4 and error 70. And auto turbo will work for a while until the next boot like i said above.


    I personally think that it's not a chip issue and i can run intel burn test and prime95 for hours at 4.6 GHZ on auto turbo with voltage reaching 1.36-1.37. It might be soemthing wrong with the motherboard that it may force this stupid error that many people seem to have who own an extreme4 gen3
