Is 4770k 4.5 possible on air?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I got a 4770k with my Maximus Hero, and also bought a dh-14 for it. I'm really hoping to reach at least 4.5, would this be possible? Or am I better off returning the dh-14 for h100 or something?

It depends on how good your chip is but I would say the majority should be able to do 4.5GHz with an NH-D14 for cooling smile.gif

I did 4.5GHz at 1.25v with my NH-D14 (stock fans) pre-delid with temps maxing out at around 80c on P95. But it depends, you could get a chip that needs 1.3v+ for that speed and a NH-D14 won't cut it, nor will the H100. But if you delid, the NH-D14 will be able to handle up to 1.4v while keeping temps below 90c.

I pushed my 2500k to 5.0Ghz with the NH-D14, that's a hell of a cooler, so I'm pretty sure that 4.5 on Ivy is do-able on air.

I hope it's possible, I have a 4770K + NH-D14 arriving today and 4.5ghz is my target smile.gif

Yes it's possible, just depends on your chips voltage dependency.
