The seasonic SS-760xp2 for $99AR is a better deal, but this is still a decent deal even though it is $20 more, and who knows when the seasonic will be on sale again. The AX760 and the SS-760 are the same PSU anyway. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139042&nm_mc=EMC-IGNEFL091614&cm_mmc=EMC-IGNEFL091614-_-EMC-091614-Latest-_-PowerSupplies-_-17139042-L012B + USD $20 off w/ promo code EMCPAWD55, ends 9/22
It is not a Utility, that is screen shot of the bios itself. Restart your computer, go into the bios, save your settings, then load the factory defaults (this will remove your overclock), then save and reboot. When you reboot, go back into the bios, look at the current VID setting (vcore) and that is your stock VID. If you have to remove any overclocking/overvolting, and go to stock and reset in order to see it.
The odds of your 4770k being able to do 4.6ghz at 1.2v is very slim. You would probably need over 1.3v for that. I would start at 4.2ghz and 1.2v and work up from there. Read the guides, they are your friend. http://www.overclock.net/t/1401976/the-gigabyte-z87-haswell-overclocking-oc-guide/0_30 http://www.overclock.net/t/1411077/haswell-overclocking-guide-with-statistics/0_30
http://www.overclock.net/t/1401976/the-gigabyte-z87-haswell-overclocking-oc-guide/0_30Basically the same as vcore. I've had 2 4770ks. One sucked and had a VID of 1.21v! It wouldn't OC pass 4.0ghz. My current one is 1.05v and it OCs good, 4.5ghz @ 1.25v.VID isn't proof positive a chip is good or that it will suck, but for me it was. It is a quick way to see if a chip is good or not, nothing more or less. Testing is the only real proof.
I delidded my 3770k and dropped 15C. I have a 4770k but my temps are ok so I see no reason do delidd again. Your temps are perfectly reasonable to 1.3v @ 4.4ghz on a 4770k. If I were you, I would not delid. Delidding hurts resale value some, and void your warranty depending on who you ask. If you do delidd, I would keep the IHS on the CPU and just replace the TIM with CLU. The IHS also protects the CPU, so if you remove it and you scratch the die, you will probably...
OEM means it comes in Dell PC or a custom desktop like Sidewinder computers or something. Intel doesn't warranty those because the PC builder should warranty the computer. Intel should still cover these though because they are sold individually and not as PC. I think it is a safe purchase. Just MHO. Update, maybe Roaches is correct. Do your own research based on his link. http://www.intel.com/support/processors/sb/CS-032344.htm
Are you sure that it's the motherboard and not the PSU? I run a 780Ti SC on my Z87N-wifi, and it runs without problems. I can run 1.212v at 1254mhz without issues. The 780Ti draws more watts than a 680 does. I have a seasonic 760w platinum psu though so that helps. For a 295x you would probably need a 1000w psu for stability. I needed a 1000w psu to make my sli titans stable.I agree itx boards aren't too great for CPU overclocking though. My CPU seems to have more...
The XP2 series is physically smaller than the evga PSUs. If you have a small case, they are the only choice if you want platinum. The evgas though offer a longer warranty and are more commonly available at lower prices, so they are the better deal IMHO if you don't care about physical dimensions. I've owned the evga 1000w G2, the 660xp2, and the 760xp2. All are excellent so you can't go wrong. If it was down to the 750w G2 for $99AR, or the 760xp2 for $99 AR, I would only...
Good deal, use the $15 off Google Wallet mobile and you get this PSU for $45AR. Pretty amazing deal for 750w gold. Only issue is isn't modular.
I hope I am wrong, but I am pretty sure you can't give away the codes. You basically loose them if you already own the games in question.
