If it's the same revision number, I would....if not i think I'd reinstall.

Now I have to find the "Extremely disappointed in the I7 4770K Club."
Hit the heat wall at 4.2. 1.26v
What water block are you using ? .... yes, I was being facetious
A very good air cooler is required for voltage levels above 1.15V.
1.20V-1.23V requires use of closed loop water coolers.
At 1.24V-1.275V dual or triple radiator water cooling solutions are advised.
My version of the above......
- A very good air cooler is required for voltage levels above 1.15V....aka Hyper 212
- 1.20V-1.24V requires use of 240/280 closed loop water coolers of the "Big 3" air coolers (Phanteks PH-TC14-PE, Thermalright Silver Arrow, Noctua DH-14)
- At 1.25V-1.35V dual or triple radiator water cooling solutions are advised.

I reseated the block--just to be sure I can sleep at night. No love so far. If I can get this to 4.4 I'll happy.
44,44,44,44,44,44 with ram @ 2400 is my goal. I'm wondering if 16 gb ram is too much.
The Haswell is a dog.
Haswell and AVX is a new era ..... I don't find much use for P95 except for raising my temps to a point whereby I can accelerate TIM curing. I can be 8 hour P95 stable and then crash under RoG Real Bench .... or the big crash maker.... I let my son play BF4.
I do all my Haswell Overclocking with RoG Bench .... post build I was RoG Real Bench stable at 4.6 Ghz (4.5 cache ratio) and 74C at 1.325 on BIOS 0804 ..... upgrading to 1102 borked that .... and at 4.5 Ghz / 45 CR .... temps are OK my voltage now spikes to 1.48 under adaptive.
Given that P95 failure to serve as stability tester .... I just use it to set my paste and cut cure time....I have picked up as much as 1-2C getting temps 5-10C above (80-85) where I am comfy sitting at (75C). RoG Real Bench puts teh system through a variety of real application loads that adequately stress the system ....including AVX in a "real application" setting.
I'm very comfortable with my 74C but the voltages at 1.48 have stopped me from going any further....at least not with this BIOS.....haven't seen anything better outta 12xx thru 14xx. 11xx thru 14xx came out rapid fire....I'm hoping that 15xx gives back what we had in 0804.

I mean, the reason why most people switch from the stock water block to EK is supposed be the different material the block is made of or is it not?
Yup..... and here's why....
They "read it on the internet"
1. The M6F is aluminum .... FALSE .... it's actually anodized aluminum.
2. Aluminum will corrode the other parts of the cooling system ... FALSE .... scientifically impossible; aluminum is a less noble money so if anything, the aluminum would act as a sacrificial anode like a 'zinc" on an outboard motor and actually protect the other parts of the cooling system from corrosion.
It's shame.... that $100 could pay for an 2nd set of pull fans on the rads, a GFX card upgrade or even most of the cost of a GFX card WB. Not to mention, getting to the extra block is a bear in SLI / CF systems.... can't imagine it in rigid acrylic.Edited by JackNaylorPE - 4/18/14 at 4:05pm
