New to intel

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone, i recently upgraded my computer with the new motherboard and cpu.
However since im totally new to Intel i have a couple of questions;

What is "de-lidding" and is it really necessary?
Can i reach a stable over-clock without de-lidding?

Will my H100 (P&P) closed cooler be sufficient for a good over-clock?
Can anyone point me to some in-depth oc tutorial for haswell?
I'm aiming for 4.5-4.6+ for a 24/7 usage.

Delidding:

Unless you are a serious benchmarker who strives for every Mhz, no it is not necessary, it is very dangerous and you can kill your CPU VERY easily. I recommend that you do not delid especially since your purchase is recent.

H100:

Yup! It should be fine for a nice overclock, 4.5-4.6 might be pushing it a little bit, but you will be able to overclock. And if you "won" the silicon lottery, you might actually be able to hit that speed!

Tutorials:

dpoverlord covered that.


If you are not sure about overclocking I recommend that you purchase the Intel Performance Tuning Protection plan. For $25 you get coverage for your CPU even if you overclock. With the standard warranty, overclocking damage is not covered. http://click.intel.com/tuningplan/

Good luck!

Thanks guys and also keep in mind i live in the colder region of south korea during winter we reach -30c wich is awesome for overclocking and ambient temperature is generally low in this room so that should help the cpu oc i hope, thanks.
