My CPU underclocks like a monster, maybe even below 1.05vcore for 4ghz. The highest i've been able to go absolutely unconditionally solid though is 4.6 @1.27vcore. It's a shame, because i'm on air, not delidded and my average temp on hottest core when encoding is ~65c, peaks to 70 or a degree or two over (with ht off) yet i can't seem to scale beyond. I'm missing something and would like to find out what it is
Since i didn't do this properly and am pretty confident of settings now:
CPU Model: 4770k
Core Multiplier: 46*100, 4.6ghz
CPU VID: 1.27
Input Voltage: 1.85 (gigabyte, turbo llc)
Uncore Multiplier: 35 (on gigabyte so this means 8x idle, 40x load, never 35x)
Uncore Voltage: 1.2, 1.18 maybe but 1.15 doesn't work
Cooling Solution: Silver Arrow SB-E SE
Stability Test: x264 many many hours over the last months, gaming. Has been my go-to for quite a while, with a few slight tweaks
Batch Number: L310B490
Ram Speed: Sammy low volts @2400 10-12-13-31-2t right now at 104tRFC and 1.525v. Still adjusting.
Are those the Samsung UDIMMs from last year that sold for $40 per 8 GB? That's pretty awesome if so!
YEA! Jamey has avatar!
What's the concensus on Thermalright's Venomous X? I bought it cause it was cheap ($45) and I LOVE the look. This is important because my case has no window.
Is it worth it to jump ship for that new single tower Noctua? Also, water cooling is out because I prefer to have only 1 case exhaust open and an H100 would require me to pop open the top and that ain't happening.
