Let's be honest Haswell is pants for overclocking - Page 4

post #31 of 40
I was kinda hoping for more out of haswell, but it isn't a failure. Most are able to get up to 4.5Ghz or so, which is still faster than a 5Ghz sandy bridge & getting close to 5ghz ivy performance.

Just looking at the average clockspeed it may look less impressive (like sandy --> ivy), but the performance is there.

If haswell wasnt so difficult to oc, as in it was just like ivy bridge, I wouldnt see a problem recommending it.

Just seems too iffy at the minute from what ive read on here. It might just be some settings people are missing, but there seems to be an awful lot of people saying they are getting terrible overclocking results, like maxing out at 4.2ghz with high temperatures.

There are always some dog chips out there, OCNers have had 2500k/2600k that could barely do 4.5Ghz & 3570k/3770k that topped out under 4.5Ghz as well.

On average Ivy could clock higher, I do agree that haswell really isn't a step up there (likely downgrade for those with a golden ivy). For people looking to upgrade tech older than sandy bridge it isn't a bad option though.
It is a bit trickier overclocking, but for some that is a bonus. Some guys loved sandy bridge since it was so simple, others disliked sandy for the same reason.

this is what happens when AMD is no longer relevant in the enthusiast scene

I have both (well a 3930K) and no it doesn't.

Anything that's properly multithreaded (meaning anything from video editing to rendering to CAD software) the SB-E part will demolish a 4770K. And to add to this the average SB-E given enough cooling will clock high enough to pretty much match the single thread perf of a 4770K.

so a sb-e is still the best choice per buck?

If you need that hard multithreaded performance for something like video rendering then yes. If you are gaming i5s or amd is the way to go

in 2 moths we will get ivy e with solder so just wait it out and lets see what 4xxx series will bring smile.gif

Intel is encouraging murder of the 1st degree (attacking hammers and man slaughter) and doesn't seem to mind its products being battered out of frustration to make them work. They should also make such provisions on their feedback section

all i can get out of my 4770k is 4.2. max temps 70 celcius stock voltage. rock solid stable

didn't play with it for very long as the performance is great even on 4.2, and my head started to pulsate after 20 blue screens.

would love to get up to 4.5 or over though, when i can be bothered i'll have another gander

little disappointed with the apparent complexity of OCing haswell

I have a 3770k and 4770k also a 2550k i got lucky and delidded ny 4770k to 4.9ghz and its freakin beast...id say it take my 3770k around 5.2-5.3 to equal in performane.

Also i found haswell overclocking not as hard as people make it out to be i use MSI all you havtro worry about is Vrin vcore/uncore voltage vcssa/io/do bout it...keep uncore approx 500mhz less than core for best performance vs overclock.

thumb.gif Ill upgrade to a 6-8 core in prly a year or so.
