Is it worth delidding my 4770k that runs at 4.34?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So I've been thinking about delidding my 4770k for a while now. I started to read up on it and see what supplies I need and came across the delidded club. After looking at the before and after clocks from the members I'm not sure if it's even worth it. I ended up loosing the silicon lottery with my 4770k. My stable clock is at 4.34mhz(43 mult,, 101.0 BCLK) and I have a h100i hooked up. Do you think I will see any gains in speed? I'm looking to push the clock higher and not too concerned about temps as my idle with this clock is already low at 23c.

Gains in speed? No.
Gains in temperature? Yes. You will not notice that on idle, because 23C is pretty low, almost = ambient. You could see lower temps on load.

I mean, it really depends. Are you limited on your overclock based on voltage or are you uncomfortable with the temperatures its reaching? Delidding lowers temps, but won't improve (well it might, what do I know) your overclock on the same voltage used

Hmmm....now should I wait until the X99 Haswell Extreme comes out or buy another 4770k lottery ticket?

My voltage is already pretty high in my option. I'm running that clock 24/7 at 1.33v...adaptive voltage is enabled so it's not pulling a steady 1.33 volts. I haven't really tried to adjust the voltage any higher for my bench runs. I've actually got my volts set at 1.296 in the BIOS but the adaptive management pushes it to 1.33.
