Problem with stock corei7 4770k and talking with intel didnt help! - Page 2

Whats wrong with my board?? My i5 ran fine in it.
post #12 of 40
I have the same board and an i7-4770k and mine never did that. When i bought the i7 i had to have it replaced as the first one i got was not stable at stock speeds (would BSOD). Go swap it while you still can. If the next one does it its likely your board. Ive had some minor goofy issues with the MSI board that was resolved by reflashing the BIOS. Also make sure Intel XTU is not over riding your BIOS settings or overclocking things. In one of your pictures it looks like you where in the CPU settings in XTU, cant see enough to tell if theres something out of place there, but idk why youd be on that section unless it was to change something.

I was in section to make sure nothing did change, was verified by intel employee.

so final overclocking notes and results
It passed temp tests up to 4.3ghz @1.265vcore, the image doesnt show, but when i tried 4.4ghz @ 1.3vcore (unstable), then when i tried at 4.4ghz @1.325vcore (unstable+ TJMAX REACHED). So this could just be a dud chip :/
However the reference clock stability issue has gone away, I think will try again. But it only seemed to happen at stock settings.

I wouldn't chance it, if your having issues at stock there is something wrong. It should be its most stable at stock. Id get it replaced while you still can

Will update when i return this one. Hopefully with better OC results than that because that is just horrible.

Whats that? haha. Any questions/answers would be helpful. What do you guys get at stock temp/speed ram everything - on realtemp 3.7 and prime95 2.79. I run the standard Blend tests. But whenever i benchmark with XTU the temps go 8*c higher plus than prime95.
But yeah how are my temps/voltages besides vcore and multiplier everything was stock, except for that last one i had changed ram speed to 2400mhz to try to compare it to my i5 4670k temps.
Oh and if you cant see the picture clear. click on it, then when that window pops up, in the right bottom hand corner of that is a button to view original size use that one! (Pro tip!)

I dont recall my stock speed/temps and i also never tried using the stock cooler as i have an H80i. However i can tell you its very strange that XTU temps > Prime95. I use XTU for stress testing because the opposite was true for me. Prime was giving me unrealistically high temps (like in the 90's) while i top out just shy of 80 in XTU (4.4Ghz, 1.24v, 2133mhz ram). Ive found in real world use (Handbrake being the heaviest load) XTU for me to be much more accurate in terms of what to expect under load. Im thinking you must have some settings in XTU that alter your OC settings somehow (or just a dud CPU). If there is an option to set XTU to all its defaults try that.

While i think getting a good i7 can be hit or miss (especially seeing as i got mine day 1) i think as long as you get one without defect they are very resilient. I ran mine at 4.4Ghz and 1.24v for a month before i realized that the H80i was not seated and was thinking that 95-100 under load was normal. Reseated and havent ever had an issue with it.

Yeah ever since i first removed the h80i after the first install of it, temps have NEVER been the same >_>. Oh how i miss my i5 4670k not breaking a sweat at 4.7ghz 1.375vcore and at MAX LOAD never getting higher than 76*c THATS how good it used to be. Even when i tried shin etsu after that the temps were still 10* higher than the stock paste.
