What are your settings? mine is running adaptive with a very low increase (0.005?) . Not sure if I could go any lower.
As a baseline, a 3.7ghz stock run with AVX will drive my chip up to 1.183 volts.

So its definitely an intel thing that they really should've thought better about.
No biggie. Every little bit of performance I can get out of nearer-to-stock volts is good. Going to work on lowering the voltage soon.
3.7ghz boost speed is plenty fast for what I do, and given the 5-10% IPC advantage over Ivy/Sandy, then a 4770K at 4.3ghz is just about par with the average SB/IBs. I'm not gunning for any records with a 4.8 or anything anyway. I just want to know how far this chip can go on settings that won't need me to buy a new chip after a few years.
Btw, my settings are:
1.072 stock +0.005 adaptive voltage offset
35x max uncore
1.15v uncore voltage
Not sure what else I should be changing.Edited by garf333 - 6/19/13 at 4:55pm
