Haswell 4670k Overclocking, Almost 4.6

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have my CPU core clock at 4.4, with my cache ratio at 4.4. I have my core voltage set to 1.45, anything less than that I get BSODs or fail to boot. I am currently running a water cooling unit and so far under stress it barely passes 70 degrees Celsius. I'm in the process of doing more research as I'd like to fine tune more of the settings manually and turn off the adaptive features as I believe I could achieve a slightly higher clock, maybe 4.5 or 4.6, while using less voltage. I think one of the settings set for adaptive might be conflicting with core voltage when it is set to 1.2-1.4. It seems the majority of guides say to remain at 1.2v and boost your clock/cache as far as you can. But I've also read guides that say 1.5v is the absolute highest you can go before you overvolt the cpu.

That brings me to my next issue, I ran ASROCK ATuning before I did any overclocking research, huge mistake, and it clocked my cpu to 4.6. I was able to run ARMA 3, everything ran excellent. Well 24 hours went by and I started to research overclocking and this is when I discovered ASRock ATuning made a deadly mistake, it had my voltage set to 1.9! mad.gif All day I was playing I had core temp running and only the first core maxed out at 82 degree Celcius, and if I remember correctly 100 degrees is when the cpu will actually start to degrade. I am running an H80I water cooling loop which is nothing fancy but I certainly hope saved the life of my cpu.

Is there anyway I can verify if damage has been done to my cpu? And if not, I would like to safely achieve 4.5 or 4.6, if you have a 4670k or even a haswell for that matter, what could you suggest to achieve these speeds?

This is a screenshot of the the ASRock ATuning software. This is when it had it set for 4.3, with the voltage set for 1.76, but now that I am looking back over it I see another voltage description for 1.2. I am now not sure which is which, Was it or was it not safe? I suppose that is the question...
