My i7 4770k sucks....maybe it's me.

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone I was wondering if I could have some help or some suggestions.

My rig is;
Asus Maximus VI Impact
i7 4770k
Corsair H100i
Corsair RM850
Sapphire R9 290x
Ram is GSkill Sniper 2x 4GB 1866
SSD Samsung Evo 250GB
HDD 1TB Seagate


So here is my problem...I have read from a few people that a good starting point for overclocking is turn up the multi to 45 or 46 and voltage to 1.2....well I did that and quite a few other combos... Anyway...I ended up getting 4.4@ ~1.37 volts. It seems to run fine in everything except BF4...but that could be BF4. It passed 13 hours on ADIA64 (Voltage set to manual not adaptive) temps hitting ~85*c momentarily and hovering about 75*c.
I am new to overclocking Intel and everything I read says Haswell is a whole new animal in regards to overclocking. Is there anything that might be causing issues with my OC that the board could be adjusting if it is set to Auto?....or did I just get a below average chip?


Any ideas or links to stuff to read would be appropriated.


THANKS!!!cheers.gif

Lot's of goodies inside this thread...

You can also look through motherboard specific guides to find some other things. Also you're not just adjusting vcore for stability in haswells case, you also have to deal with vrin voltage and vring voltage (may be named something different on ASUS boards). And haswell gets hot, hotter than ivy. Another thing to note is to make sure you're not upping your uncore ratio while going through initial clocking stages for your i7 (keep uncore @ 34). Others will know more, and that thread is filled with stuff. GL.

I'd say it's just down to the chip, however it's hard to come to that conclusion without knowing your actual settings; post some print screens of your BIOS settings!

I've read that you want to keep your CPU cache ratio 3 under your multiplier. So, instead of leaving it on auto, set it to 41 for your current OC.

I'm currently running, 42 multiplier @ 1.2v, 39 cache ratio. I haven't tired for much more, yet. I've since switched to adaptive Vcore, and it seems to be stable, and running well.

I'm going to see if I can get more later, though, I personally don't want nearly the voltage you're running.

So is it safe for h100i to go over 1.25 volts these days?

From Asus

"There is of course a side-effect. Having power circuitry on-die adds heat. Haswell processors run hot when voltage levels are increased.

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.

This is assuming the processor will be run at full load for extended periods of time."

Thanks guys. Yeah I don't want the voltage it tested at. I backed it down to stock for now until I get more info. So for now it is running 3.9GHz and stock voltage. I love the CPU just hoping for a better oc. My old rig FX 8350 would do 5GHz....mind you this cpu (the i7) is still faster at like 4.2GHz

I'll check out the Haswell OC thread...it is just hard getting every ounce of info from over 1100 pages in one sitting....in other words I get impatient lol biggrin.gif

Temps haven't been too high. I monitored it and it didn't get above 85 or 86 and that was on one core....everything hung around 75*c I am not going to run that voltage 24/7. I was just posting what it took to get it there.

I just moved from a FX 8320 @ 4.4 to this 4770k. It's night and day dude. Finally, I can fully take advantage of this GTX 780.

I freaking love this CPU, even at stock its gaming performance is leaps past my FX chip. biggrin.gif

*Sorry ol'8320, but it is what it is.

FWIW, the bone stock 4770 (non k) in my NeXT Box hit 100c with the stock cooler two minutes into prime95-64.

These Haswell run Hot man.

I've got a better cooler now....... biggrin.gif
