I think you have to manually type in 1250 after setting cpu vore control to manual.


Here


Change current vcore from auto to manual and input 1250. 


Yes, I know, the problem is, it won't let me.
 



Are you running the latest bios version 1.22? If yes, have you tried older bios versions to see if you experience the same issue with them?

Yes, 1.22, I tried to refresh it, and it wouldn't boot. Where's the old one?

I have the newest version 1.22, I thought you suggested to install an older version.

Yes, I did suggest installing an older version. You can try them all if you'd like.

There's only two and the older one is not there just the new one.

Make sure you uncheck "show latest driver" before clicking submit.

I re-flashed the BIOS, and all is good, what I was doing wrong was, selecting instead of just typing over the entry.

This isn't a super active thread but using the Z77 FTW is a little unique, especially given that it is somewhat of an antique at this point. 
OC in general tho: I spent some time playing with an i5-3570K and ran into thermal issues with a crap air cooler as expected.  I'm disappointed to seemingly find that thermal is not the issue when u delid and go liquid metal even with a crap air cooler (stock-ish).  I can't get a stable 4.6 but it seems like maybe more of a chip stability thing maybe... up to 1.4V seems like a lot... CPU temp still down at 60-70C... just crashing (will run with same settings at 4.5GHz). 
Turn it up to 11? (so-to-speak) (i.e. 1.45V ... 1.5V... ?) Saw a thread linking an article on a i7 3770K that needed 1.35V to hit 4.9 that basically doubled the stock wattage/heat.  Danger-zone...
Any recommendations?
 
(I'm not messing with current at all except in XTU, mildly, getting same #'s as traditional OC in Bios)
(VDroop @50% crashed my system)
I'd love to "better" the guy on XTU who got 4.8GHz out of this chip (looks like he just "went to 11" tho... bag of hammers answer, pby burst into flames shortly afterward? / ...or silicon lottery(bad answer))

...And this is pby a key point to a vet, but the clock is bouncing from 3.6 to 1.6GHz  on XTU when I set the peak clock setting at 4.6 prior to running a benchmark that inevitably crashes...

I've had nothing but poor results with vDroop so I just turn it off, but I'm using an AIO on my setup and prefer a stuck clock rather than adjusting based on load. Have you tried disabling vDroop and the c states to make sure it always runs at that clock speed? If you don;t have the cstates disabled I believe tweaking the performance plan for processor minimum state should do the trick. Out of curiosity are you on windows 7 or 10?
