I was wondering.... I seen a bunch of Malay chips on the list; I have a Costa Rica chip. Straight out of the box, I decided to see if I had a decent chip or not. I have the ASUS MAXIMUS VI FORMULA mobo, so I went with CPU up initially. 4.6Ghz was reachable, quite easily. I have not delidded, but will be very soon as my temps are insane. :| Batch#3313B373 I kept wondering why no matter what setting I had my 4770K at, Prime would Bsod my pc..well after watching the Newegg video I totally understand. It's not updated yet for Haswell and is the reason why it doens't recognize my CPU. No more testing with Prime. It's synthetic anyways and isn't realworld. I was able to run RealBench from ROG, PCMark and CineBench just fine; so now, I am going to have to completely retest everything because I thought something was up with my cpu...turns out, mine is alright. I am able to run 4.7Ghz @ 1.23 Vcore; Cache 47x, @ 1.24. It seems to work pretty good; Though, I need to do some final tweaks with it to ensure stability through testing. Most of the time it just fine, but I hit the ever-so-famous thermal wall. SO...time for a delid...maybe today? Who knows...first have to see how the 360mm Rad, RayStorm and some new TIM works out. I will keep all posted on my results, and will post some pre-lim results soon as I get them.
