fairly new overclocker needs a bit of help

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
my hardware
i7 4770k
GA-Z87X-UD4H
2x4gig ballistix sport 1600
apogee hd waterblock
water chiller-loop stays at 8c-12c
cx500m psu







so i'm trying to overclock my CPU a bit more. before i had a hard time getting the i7 above 4.3

i sorta gave up for a bit then retried today. i have my multiplier at 45 and uncore at 42 with a voltage of 1.35
it idles at 6-11c but with prime it hits 75. what i find odd is enabling the k setting on my board and the watts hit 160. is this normal?

another thing is what should i change to get a bit more? ive tried 4.7 but it will bsod once it posts or when i stress. ive played around with the uncore but to no avail. the highest voltage ive tried is 1.405. should i go higher? with this new board i havent changed any other settings yet. im still dialing in the new chiller set up.

i have been reading many of the threads on these chips i just wanted someones opinion as to how they would proceed. any help is much appreciated.

Anything over 1.3v for a 4770k isn't recommend for daily use, and I wouldn't go near 1.4v if you want your chip to make it through the year.
