Okay, gonna give this one last go !!!!
First of all thank you to everyone that replied with help on this topic the last time.
I have read all the product specs and compatibility specs several times. No need to post links to the specs.
I am using the DZ77GA-70K motherboard (3rd gen) along with the I7-2600K cpu (2nd gen).
I have overclocked the system within the BIOS several times with great results. And I understand the when overclocking doing it through the BIOS is best option.
I am giving this computer to a family member. They do know a little about computers and how the operate. But they do not understand how to overclock within the BIOS. I want to install and use the Intel Extreme Tuning Utility so they can have a simpler way of overclocking.
Problem being is: the ETU will not work with this particular setup.
This is why I am confused ???????????????????????????
Over the past 3 days I have taken the cpu (I7-2600K) out of the system and put it into an MSI motherboard that uses the Z77 chipset. The Extreme Tuning Utility works as it should with all advanced tuning options available.
I also put the cpu (I7-2600K) into yet another motherboard (ASUS) with Z77 chipset and the Extreme Tuning Utility works as it should with all advanced tuning options available.
I put the cpu (I7-2600K) back into the DZ77GA-70K motherboard and guess what ?????? Extreme Tuning Utility does not have advanced tuning options !?!?!?!!!???
Like I said I have read the specs and compatibility on both the DZ77GA-70K motherboard and the Core I-7 2600K CPU.
Why does it work on other manufactures boards and not on Intel Board ??????????
Thank you for contacting Intel Communities.
Please keep posting on the original thread:
