With all the talk (speculation) about 5.0Ghz possible on air, which I seriously doubt, my curiosity is piqued concerning what I might get at 1.25v MAX. Letting the UEFI do the overclocking, I'm very happy with 4.1Ghz on my delidded and aircooled (Phanteks TC-14PE) 4770K chip. I'm conservative in all things electronic, especially pushing CPUs, but I'm still curious. I expect 4.2 or 4.3, perhaps even 4.4 might be possible. I'm not above delidding a 4790K, but I'll only do it after a lot of folks have successfully done so and posted comments. It's not a big deal for me as I doubt I see any improvement in Flight Simulator X. My current overclock wasn't necessary, either, but I wanted to try.
