At 72, it takes awhile for things to sink in, and the KISS rule definitely applies.

Well I'd bit more than a decade behind ya Rodeo but what complicates things for me is when working on a build, I do spend lotta time figuring out what's what and THEN I do a build a week later for someone say on a Gigabyte board and everything is different. So then i get some time go back to tweak mine and my brain all in disarray from doing the Giga board. Oncre I did wroite a bunch of them down and left the paper on my workbench (aka dining room table) .... that was on December 6 ....so in anticipation of XMas Eve dinner then 18 days away, my wife was compelled to clean the table and put everything in a safe place. Now as soon as she remembers exactly what place she decided was safe at the time, i will be able to get my data back.

Yes. 4770k w/ EK Supremacy Clean Copper (plexi top) .... 74C at 46 multiplier / 46 cache ratio / 1.38 VID / 1.67 DRAM Volts / Adaptive on BIOS 0804 .... now on BIOS 1102 and that is unstable.

I know that my CPU is a bottom feeder from haswell as far as Oc'ing is concerned., I am able to get a 4.4ghz at 1.3v I have not extensively tested this, ran prime95 for about an hour or so and had to shut down and get some sleep for the night. My temps never got above 65c per core.
All of my settings are done through the UEFI for the most stable OC as reccommended
I have XMP set for my ram
I have multiplier at 44 across all cores
I have my CPU Core Voltage set to 1.3v manual
I don't really like running at 1.3v but the temps look good. What say all of the more gifted oc'ers out there?
My goal was 46 multiplier / 46 cache ratio..... way I approached it was as follows:
-Did 40 / 42 / 44 all with DDR3 on JEDEC profile (1600) and cache ratio and everything else at Auto .... checked stability, voltages and temps under RoG Bench
-Stepped up to Adaptive with 45 and 46 with JEDEC profile .... checked stability, voltage and temps under RoG Bench....raised adaptive voltages till stable.
-Went to matching cache ratio to multiplier ..... none required any additional voltage.
-Went to XMP profile ..... none required any additional voltage.
I needed no other BIOS changes to maintain stability .... DRAM voltage on Auto was 1.675 for XMP ...I tried lowering but was unstable. BIOS 1102 However has been unstable at 46/46
Watch JJ's videos on youtube .... for one, he says to completely ignore LLC on Haswell
The 4.6 start thing is just to see if you got a super chip.
Do not..... I repeat DO NOT
run prime 95 / AIDA 64 or anything like that in adaptive mode.....suggest RoG Real Bench AVX instructions will raise ya VID by 0.1.... at least it does for me tho I have never tried anything below 42 multiplier when measuring it. Be aware that even RoG bench will raise ya voltage by 0.1 during the Open CL test.

The anodized aluminum is just fine, as for the EK one, the extra block tho is a bit of a PITA on any build that uses dual GFX cards ..... extremely hard to do the plumbing .... I shot the surface temps under load with digital thermometer and tho I can't remember the results I do remember being surprised at how low they were.
I have a question....has anyone tried setting the Adaptive voltage to below 1.18 ? No matter what i set it to below that, once any load is applied VID goes to 1.18 and Vcore rises ro 1.28 on Adaptive under Open CL test in RoG Real Bench.Edited by JackNaylorPE - 3/5/14 at 2:15pm
