Built a new 4700K comp just recently, now only 3 weeks in want to upgrade..overclock potential.. - Page 3

I don't think there's really any wear you put on that chip when going to 5ghz for a short time. And I hope you installed windows on non over-clock settings and this is on of the reasons why I keep backups and system restores while overclocking, the command prompt "/sfc scannow" or "dism /online /repair" for example helps fix corruption in windows.

Did you check how much voltage is pumping when stress testing, and by the way I only use IBT for temperature testing and prime 95 for stress testing.

What's degrading your chip is pumping so much volts 1.43v and intel max is 1.5, you can go past if on dice/lnc I guess, my advice is back the overclock down to somewhere such as 4.2/4.5 so that you save the chips lifespan and lower average temperatures.

Yesterday, after installation, temps were very low. Now after trying to push it to 5.0, temps seem to never get back down to where they were. Hardware could be failing somewhere. Delid + H100i seems to done nothing now, whereas last night, it was a massive improvement. Something is wrong now frown.gif

I was under the impression Intel BT and Prime95 were not to be used to stress test Haswell. Have they been properly updated? OCCT Linx is perfectly fine for stress testing as well as cinebench and other bench marking tools that dont tax avx. Those stress test inflate temps to ridiculous levels you won't ever see in real world scenarios so I don't see the point in using them.
If your pumping 1.45v+ you're going to see 100C regardless of cooling solution in those tests (P95/IBT).

Thanks, Skewed. This morning, booted and temps returned to 19 degrees 18 degrees 20 and 20 at idle. Must be that when I went to 5.0, it was hot the rest of the day telling me *** are you doing to me?? I'll never go that high again.

I'll try that OCCT Linx now. My Cinebench scores are 84.25 fps opengl and 10.00 pts CPU

I forgot to install the little fans on the z87 mobo. If I go in again, take off the H100i in order to install the little fans, will I have to reapply more paste to the H100i or can I simply place it back on there? Only had the H100i for a couple of weeks...
