The Gigabyte Z87/Haswell Overclocking(OC) Guide - Page 275

I got my 4670K at 4.5Ghz/1.23v with a B85M-D3H board lol and i can handle 4.6Ghz with 1.26v but my Hyper 212+ isn't enough, anyways i don't reach 82° with prime95.

Updated my motherboard BIOS and lost all of my numbers! I don't remember them but I do know I was at 4.5GHZ. Back to square one I guess. Derp!

Why isn't it enough? Your temps are probably like in the 60's with x264. Why not test there?

You can at least evaluate OC potential and temps there, pretty much nobody uses the worst heat tests on Haswell - if you're peaking 82c on hottest versions of prime, you have a lot of headroom left.

i hit 65-68° when i play Crysis 3, the thing is my board that just have 4 power phases, so i feel i can harm something hahaha.

fair 'nuff

next time AMD guys are talking about how we need £400 boards to OC haswell properly, i'l point them towards that one working for a standard oc tongue.gif (£54)

i'd rather pay £40 extra, as well as better cooling extra to be able to take 1.4, though

Yeah i'm surprised with this board, i just paid like 80$ and i can put 4.5Ghz easily.

Ah, you do realize that Intel put the CPU VRM's in the CPU, right? I suspect the overclockability has more to do with the chip than with the mb.

Average chip would be at like 4.4 with those volts, though~

Still, with 4 phases you probably dont want to run 150w+

could be, btw i thought before bought this platform that i can't be able to do overclock with B85 haha, was a surprise.

oh yes i think my chip is kinda special, maybe with a better mobo and cooler i can reach 5Ghz under 1.32v

You're using ~1.25vcore at load for 4.5ghz

with normal scaling, you probably need like 1.38 - 1.45 for 4.8. 5.0 isn't happening. It's a notch above average sure, but these things don't do 50x easily. Only the really exceptional chips will get there @1.4v, not one of the "bit above average" bunch
