3770k vs 4770k overclock

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
K, first off. This isn't one of those "is it worth the upgrade?" !!
I saw 4770k going for $384 AUD on MSY.com.au so, it's out?

What I want to know is. If anybody got their hands on a 4770k and have overclocked it. I want to hear your max Ghz and vcore required.

In th many review that I've, they are achieving about 4.7ghz, not really under, neither higher. They say that passing the 4.7ghz is creating a lot of heat issue

I've come from a SB machine to a Haswell machine. I have a relatively minor OC to 4.2Ghz and I was able to get this stable at 1.15V and DRAM frequency at 1866Mhz. My old SB could hit 4.2Ghz at 1.21V. However the heat generated from the Haswell is a bit higher. I had a silver arrow on the 2600K and I have a H110 in push config for the 4770K.

Now I determined I needed 1.15V by running prime95 for 30mins using Blend. Then following up with Prime95+Unigine Heaven with low settings at a lowest resolution and then following this up with another 30mins of System Stability testing from AIDA64. If I used anything lower than 1.15V for Prime95 Blends, the system would just BSOD. So my chip is an overclocking dud. If you take a look at this thread (same mobo as me). He got a really nice chip and is able to do some wicked stuff with it. It really is luck of the draw with these things.

What the??!! Did I see 6.0Ghz @ 1.2x vcore?

Yeah man, CL3P20 has an LN2 pot and does some crazy stuff. He got really lucky with his chip. Although thats an i5 so I'm guessing that lacks hyperthreading.

Oh, guess I was blinded by 6Ghz and did not see i5 but still add hyperthreading I guess 1.3v+/- which is still pretty crazy. Anything under 1.4v for 5ghz is already amazing let a lone a full Ghz more.
Oh my, I want to get rid of my 3770k already, I just haven't come up with a reason LOL

I managed to get mine to 4.5Ghz on my average CPU. I had to supply 1.28V and increase the VCCIN to 2.1V and up the Ring Bus voltage to 1.25. Today was 19C ambient temps and it comes to 55-60C with AIDA64 and prime95. I'm running an H110 in push

Hm, looks like Haswell might need a delid. I'll wait and see if anyone will delid it
