ADD MORE VOLTAGE?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I have been running haswell and have a bad chip can barley do 4.4 @ 1.25 seems to be stable here. My question is Im only hitting 70 deg load on h100i, that is impressive. They say not to go beyond 1.25 for AIO cooler because it will most likely hit thermal threshold but have yet to see this. Should I move the voltage up higher, 1.3 I heard is not recommended for haswell, but my temps seem lower than usual at load that what i see others getting.

You can bump voltage if you want, but be careful not to go past 80 at max. 75C is where you should be calling it quits unless it's extremely stable and you don't mind the heat.

Go for it, but be careful. Also, 70C on an H100i sounds a bit high... have you seated it properly?

Yeah but im confused, you realize haswell runs hot right? Im reading the highest temps I have seen. It normally stays about 57, and yes it is seated properly.

Turns out bad chip, may return this , BELOW AVERAGE CPU. I can hit 1.25 at 44 that is my limit.

Ahhhh I'm sorry, I thought it said Ivy Bridge. I'd still try to keep it under 80C but from what I've read, 85C isn't too bad.

NO worries I have below average cpu anyway see ya haswell, on to the next 4770k until I get a good one I wont stop returning it. Unacceptable on intel's part to sell a K series CPU that can barley go up one multiplier. The whole idea of buying a K series cpu is being able to change the multiplier somewhat, no on here is looking for 4.8 but I expected at least 4.5 at decent voltages.

Ya, I've been hearing that this generation of CPU's was a letdown. I'm gonna stick with my Ivy, as that thing still rocks it.

Sorry I couldn't have been of more assistance!
