Hey guys, my 2500K needs 1.384V for only 4.5 GHz. So, therefore, I'm done with Intel. They suck. :)
Sorry. Just making a point. Nowhere does Intel say that their "K" CPUs can overclock. All they said is that the multiplier is unlocked. The rest is all "the luck of the draw". You could have it worse: you could have ended up with one that doesn't really overclock at all. All Intel knows before boxing these CPUs up is that they work as they're supposed to at stock and that the multiplier is indeed unlocked. So, it really makes no sense to get upset over the fact that your 4770K is having a hard time getting 4.3 GHz with 1.3V or less. That's like me getting upset that my 2500K needs 1.384V for 4.5 GHz when the majority of 2500Ks need a lot less voltage than that. It doesn't make sense for me to expect 4.5 GHz with 1.352V or less (usually less) just because it seems that everyone else is getting that. There are people on here who have 2500Ks that require about 1.4V for 4.5 GHz and I don't really see them complaining like this.
But hey, switch to AMD the next time you upgrade. Be my guest. You'll be back.
