Intel Haswell Overclocking Fully Disclosed [HWBOT]
 
Massman's take on IDF2013

Quote:

As I am writing this, I am flying back from Beijing to Taipei. Tired, but intellectually challenged by the speakers at IDF 2013 Beijing, I am composing this article to disclose all the information I have picked up at the event. On the first day, we (the IDF attendees) had two one-hour introductions to the new Haswell micro-architecture, but the most valuable and interesting information came on the second day. In the technical seminar about overclocking, featuring GIGABYTE’s Hicookie demoing a 7GHz Core i7 3770K, Intel representatives disclosed a lot of valuable information on overclocking the upcoming Haswell. Check out the article for the full disclosure – hope you enjoy it!

What I want to know is, did they fix the IHS issue? And are the retail chips going to be fully compatible with USB 3.0 devices across the board. I didn't see any thermal specs there.

From what I've read they are using tim again, not fluxless solder. However I've seen comments by guys doing testing that it's not an issue overclocking.

As for the USB issue, not sure. I always disable sleep & hibernation anyways:bleh:

Not the full-fledged X58-esque BCLK overclocking some were hoping for out of Haswell, but enough flexibility to hopefully make overclocking more fun than it has been on SB & IB.

Looks like adjusting bclk straps like overclocking X79. Hopefully the non-K's will have unlocked blck straps/ratios.

Haswell will be LGA 1150
