You will blue screen if something is terribly wrong.

This is what happens at completely stock settings, the vcore went up to 1.4 by itself and the CPU went turbo to 4.3ghz. Going to start overclocking, disabling c-states here soon.


You might be right, but one reviewer said his cpu was running well into the 90's cº and the cpu throttled itself but the temp didn't go down along with the clock speeds.

Yep, for example, this guy

I just tried 1.2v @ 46 and on the Z87X-OC Force got the "A2" code on the mobo.

As my progress is coming along I'll post in the hopes of helping OP, and also looking for feedback too.

I just back where I can really mess with my computer. Right now with a 45 min test on Aida64, it seem stable at 4.5 at 1.248 volts. Its not the 1.2 volts, So later I am going to test it at 4.6 or 46 and try for 4.7 or 47. Though I can tell you there is a difference from Prime95 and Aida64. Temps got higher on aida64. The spiked to 70c but normal stuck around 55-64c, and ambent timp is 24c it seemed the jumped around more on Aida64. I have turned HT back on for now.


I did find something neat on the OC force board. you can OC it like I did on the Performance page, but it will still just between 3.5-4.5 if you have it OC at 4.5. it seems to Throttle it self depending on work load. If your idle it will stick around 3.5, put you push it and it will go to 4.5 and stay. But if you go over to the second tab then to Advanced voltage. And there youll see it still clocked like it was on the Performance was. And if you change this info to say 4.3 or even 4.5 it will throttle itself when idle to that speed. So if you but 4.5 it will stay at 4.5 all the time. I dont know about temp throttling I lucked out with my WC. Now this could be something that been on IVY, but I am coming from 920 DI0 so its new to me, and sorry if I am behind.


Edit: Just did 4.6 at 1.246 volts and got to 20 mins on Aida64 before getting the BSoD, telling to I need more volts. but it did boot up and it did run for 20 mins at full load.

Means that your cpu is set to run @ 3.5 and it turbos to 4.5 so you don't have all power states enabled with that config.

Mine idles @ 0.8v/800mhz

I was prime95 stable for 70+ hours at 45x and 1.375.

Can't seem to get over that 45x wall.

OP how is your overclocking progress coming?

I'm not 100% sure on this, correct me if I'm wrong.

Yes, this is true. I'm seeing it down-throttle at insta-heat range of 101 celsius, and it seems to maintain 99 celsius and will go between 3.6 and 4.1 ghz.

This was JJ(Jose Jesus) from Asus who said that, based on their testing of 700 chips, a good OC chip is going to do 4.6Ghz at 1.2 Volts VCore.

You're lucky. My L311B batch chip is unable to maintain stability and speed at 4.3Ghz.

I'll be going the de-lid route if I can't get this happy-happy.

Looking for help with the finer points of OC a 4770k, guides suggestion or just help.

Hi, as the title says I am working on OCing my 4770k. I have messed around got it to 4.5 at 1.22v and 4.6 at 1.262v but thats kind of just a dirty quick way, I want to learn the finer points and be able to get the most out of my OC with the little volts I can. here is a couple of my old screen shots of bios, its f6b and I am using f6c.
