Is this a good 3930K?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I have it at 4.6Ghz with 1.340v. Just built a rig with it, using an XSPC Raystorm block and RX360 rad to cool it. Load temps are in the low to mid 60s. I tried 4.8Ghz but even 1.395v wasn't stable so I said forget it. Maybe I just need to try harder.

Here are some pics of the build:

Seems very good to me considering it's 6 core/12 thread at such a low voltage. I haven't seen a lot of 2011 overclocks but if i had the setup I would be very happy. My 2500K (which I consider pretty good) does 4.7ghz at 1.328v, but that's only 4 cores without hyperthreading. You have more cores, hyperthreading, and even more PCI-E lanes built into the CPU. So IMO very good chip you have!

Nice but you did not give to as details about stability test. IBT or Prime95? for how long etc

I've only tested with OCCT and Prime95 for about 30 minutes each. But I've had it folding smp 12 for a couple nights without a problem.

If you're only in games that should be enough. A little tougher tests show that for the clock 4.6 GHz need to be a little more voltage. I can run may on 1.33V all day long but for hard testing i found 1.38V is the best.
Other than that 4.6 GHz is an excellent choice. Again if you are in gaming then go for 4.3/4.4GHz (for speed/voltages ratio), on those speed there is no game which can CPU load of more than 30% and voltages are in range 1.3V thumb.gif
