Asus Z87 Overclocking only fails!! - Page 2

post #11 of 16
44X CPU Multi
1.25v Vcore
1.9V CPU Input voltage

Give it a shot. Vrin is the usual culprit in unstable overclocks

Only suggested HWInfo because it will show you more than cpu-z, for example cache and VCCIN volts. You can move the readings in the latest version so the ones you're mainly interested on are at the top, easy to read.

So like twocables mentioned, you'd move the vcore readings to the top etc.

A someone already mentioned I would read the Haswell Overclocking guide right here on Overclock.net. I wish I would have before I set out to overclock my 4770K! Haswell is no longer about adding vcore and raising the multiplier. Reading that guide will explain what I mean and give you a good understanding of the overall process.

I think the 4.6Ghz @ 1.25v you attempted at first was a little optimistic. The 4.4Ghz at 1.28v is more in line with what I would expect from a decent chip. That's the thing though: getting a decent chip. When speaking about overclocking capability, the range of the 4770K is very wide. I myself had a very poor chip but if you look around a little you will see that some have quite good ones.

Ok, it worked but my pc crashes after a amount of time (10-15 minutes) and that's kinda annoying...
I'll just have to accept that i got bad luck on the cpu lottery... frown.gif

My 4770k was a 4.5ghz chip at 1.4v and it would still fail prime95 after about 6 hours, only way to make it completly stable was to back it down to around 4.3ghz at 1.4v and it would pime until you shut it down.

Luckly i RMA'ed that chip when my Maximus VI Extreme died, and sold off the replacement, so i have no idea how it overclocked.
