How are people overclocking when 1.2v on a silver arrow/h100i = thermal throttling? I mean 20c wont save you here. Delidding ivy allowed you to push towards 1.5v on a silver arrow/nhd14 - but you'll barely pass 1.3 at this rate on haswell it seems
Is there some kind of standard here, or ocing guides? I'm so confused. I thought it would be less of a weird mess where nobody knows anything a whole week after the cpu release, this was the first time i tried to buy something on release
I'm a bit hesitant to delid when i can clock to like 4.8 without avx, but then again there's no way i'd get past 4.5 1.19v with ht, 15c ambients and a silver arrow with service pack 1, it's not happening. I didn't expect such groundbreakingly bad results, i didn't buy a silver arrow and get an above average chip to run at lower gflops than any random dude running a decent ivy bridge at the same temperature
I dont even know why i posted in delidding thread, i was very strongly considering it, but i just don't know anything about overclocking Haswell. ThanksEdited by Cyro999 - 6/8/13 at 10:26pm
