Haswell Overclocking Guide [With Statistics] - Page 963

post #9621 of 19637
Out of curiousity, I've noticed that my processor is maintaining max speed when I'm not necessarily using it. I have C7s enabled which is supported by my i4770k. Anyone have any ideas?





It would be nice to have my processor actually down-clock when it's not being used to lengthen it's lifecycle.

Dont you have to enable speed step for it to throttle?? I might be wrong on that.

I didn't think I had disabled it. Though it has been a while since I was in my BIOS and maybe I changed it by mistake one day when I was tired. Currently I've been waiting nearly two weeks for my CLU to arrive from overseas (I found it on Amazon AFTER I ordered it from their website). Yay DHL...not. DHL is great overseas, but in the US FedEx and UPS are king.

Power settings, make sure you're on balanced power plan and it's set to minimum min CPU state

I upped the VCCIN to 1.956v and lowered the VID from 1.43 to 1.38....I might be able to go lower, but it was like 2 in the morning when I was messing with it and I got rather tired of watching stability tests....biggrin.gif

On the really bright side: if I can go lower, then that means (logically speaking) that I should be able to get my 4.8ghz OC without needing 1.5v+ for the VID....thumb.gif

Second 4770k will be here tomorrow and I've already got someone to buy it if it is a meh chip. biggrin.gif Me wants golden. @Szeged, bless me with your golden chip powers.

you can use prime 95 to check for stability just make sure its not on adaptive thats it

But x264 is recommended by everyone who has gone through the paces including the OP. To me, it's better to see real world temps and keeping the voltages down to what they need to be stable for and not what prime needs to be stable with.

I do like the approach of working down to volts using a few large fft's as well, but not blend and not up to date versions of prime/linx

^ This...thumb.gif I personally like using my computer, so running Prime for hours and hours isn't sensible for me....I run my own little battery of tests, and if my OC survives them, then I move on and go about my business....

Update on OC: I'm stable so far at 4.7ghz (core) @ 1.41v VID, 4.2ghz (uncore/cache) @ 1.25v, and 1.956 (VRIN/VCCIN/Input)....bruce.gif
