Problem with stock corei7 4770k and talking with intel didnt help!

post #1 of 40
Thread Starter 
Okay so i went to Microcenter and got a new i7 4770k on sale! Anyway i get it home and put my h80i on it cus we all know these things get toasty! I started er up first time like a charm! Touched no bios settings. and went straight into XTU and real temp, put up prime95 and then my CPU goes to 4.47ghz!!!! Every time i run prime95, my reference clock was modulating between 87mhz and 117mhz, and this overclocked my cpu to 4.47ghz during one point of the test. I spoke to Intel and they said they dont know whats wrong with the CPU and that I should get a replacement with the retailer. And that i voided my warranty when i used the H80i. But when intels CPU went and overclocked itself, they voided my Ram warranty too... Well this is just a ton of **!&%$. What do you think i should do?
Not really worried about my ram warranty if im here anyway biggrin.gif.

Did you clear your CMOS?

Did you give them your serial number to actually void the warranty for that CPU? If so, no matter what is going on I would swap it out. Just go to Micro Center and tell them the CPU is bad and per Intel you are returning it for a replacement. If they ask why, just tell them stability issues.

Is that really what speed step does? And maybe i should go ahead and return it cant boot to windows @4.3ghz @1.2v and im already hitting 84*c with 4.2ghz @ 1.2vcore with my h80i.

It sounds like this is a CPU upgrade into a system that already existed. Is that correct?

What mother board and bios version are you using?
What was the previous CPU in the system?
Have you checked the settings in the BIOS for the CPU?

yeah i had a i5 4670k in here before, but i sold it and purchased this for 259.99
z87 Msi gd45 Gaming v1.7
i5 4670k, kept temps below 80*c @ 4.4ghz and 2400mhz ram with h80i.
And yes, when i changed them out all the settings automatically got reset to default because it detected a different cpu.

Clear the CMOS (by jumper or removing the battery), then try again.

Shouldn't you perhaps rather blame the board, not the CPU? (note: I have no idea where the default 100 Mhz base clock come from in Haswell)
