how much could you overclock 4770k with a hyper212evo on a Z87 Sabertooth (without OCing ur RAM)

if other factors like chassis and fans mounted on cooler might be affecting,

pls just consider the stock fan and a normal full tower chassis, coz that way I might consider my own rig a bit higher

mine is Haf932 + push/pulled cooler with two cougars CF-V12HP

also knowing the VCORE and CPU NB Voltage used, will save me a lot error and trial

thanks

I would say if your going with the stock cooler... i wouldn't go more than 1.15 max as haswell is a hot little nugget. for the EVO with cougars i'd push 1.2 area and see what your ambient temps (in room temperatures) are and see what you get doing a IBT (Intel Burn Test run) Don't use Prime95 as that can over volt your haswell CPU through the coding and can damage them.

So for now try 1.15 to 1.2 area and see what you get. the multiplier and such is all up to you as it depends on every chip but you might get 4.4-4.5 area if it's pretty decent. Just do enough testing to make sure it's stable enough. thumb.gif

I dont have that MB, but if it has built in OC profiles try one of those first, a lower one. Your best bet is to start low and work your way up to your desired OC. Overclocking requires trial and error. Its fine to ask for a base point to start from but no one can tell you what your settings will be for optimal OC. Each chip, mb, ram, cooling,config is different.

The 4770k is especially varied. My first would have issues at 4.0Ghz and even at stock, i had to exchange it. Some people are stuck in the low 4's and some can hit 4.6-4.8 without trouble. Luck of the draw.

Its also important to stress test your OC, being able to boot alone wont be enough. So dont assume a OC is stable and move forward until putting it under stress for a reasonable amount of time.

Your cooling will play a relatively small part in your OC. Dont get me wrong, its important, but your BIOS settings will determine what you can hit, temps will only determine what you can stay at. On air im not sure what the temps you can expect are. I know the 4770k starts to throttle at 100c not that you should aim to hit that temp. 70's maybe low 80's under load are what you should aim for.

Measure temps and all at stock first to set a base for temps, then you can compare that to the OC temps.
