those settings for p95 are all around the web. I found it in haswell oc thread. It also will run the test cooler.

Haha no, I didn't figure that out by myself. I read a guide. Once you get a grip of how Haswell ticks when running prime, you should be pretty efficient at making your overclock stable (with most chips).

I find that the small k-tests don't really generate more heat than the large ones on the Pentiums. Lack of AVX or whatever. At 4.7 and 1.35V, my pentium always sticks to the 70 degree mark running through custom no matter what fft size. (air cooled)

only 2 cores to cool with a tiny stock tdp (50 ish watts) also help keep that cpu cool.

Not necessarily. Huge variance between chips, some of them think they're a 4790k (temperaturewise only I'm afraid though biggrin.gif)
My first pentium hit 66C maxcore 4.5 1.28V while being cooled by a 1080 custom loop - this guy hits only 72C maxcore 4.7 1.35, and all the cooling it gets is a single fan @1000rpm on the silver arrow. Testing in both cases was a 90min custom run

This CPU is by no means easy to cool.. so little surface area to pump heat out from...


Delidding only gave me ~ 5-7C with arctic silver, front and back..

Hey, guys, I got mine running at 4.8ghz and 1.375v. Pretty stable, right now:). I try go past the 4.8ghz with different setting of voltage. No luck with it.thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif

4.4 GHz at 1.27 (working on getting it lower)
1.93 VCCIN
32 uncore

It's stable for IBT 10 times and all night long for x264. Highest temp for x264 is 76* on stock cooling.

I keep trying to get 4.5 but it's erratic. I can get 10 IBT no problem along with gaming (D3, LoL) but x264 dumps anywhere between 20 minutes and 3 hours later depending on voltage settings I try. I've tried up to:

4.5 at 1.31
1.97 VCCIN
1.15 ring

Temps hit 84* or so on x264 so I'm hesitant to go too much higher on voltage. Considering the large jump in voltage and the stability issues, I might just call 4.4 good enough since I'll be using it 24/7 anyways. Work on getting that voltage down a bit more and call it a day.

Overall I like it and it's a big upgrade from what I was coming from! Great value considering I basically have an entirely new computer (though the RAM I didn't have to pay for) for $235 ($106 for processor/mobo and $129 for a R9 270). And as an added bonus, I have $20 in rebates coming back to me to make it $215. Not too shabby at all.

EDIT: added rebates

Looks like I got my final stable overclock at:

4.4 at 1.25 (vcore 1.27 as apparently my board adds .02)
1.93 VCCIN
40 uncore

Considering I was going to 1.31 (vcore 1.33) to try and get 4.5 stable and it would still crash at some point in x264, I think a rock solid 4.4 at 1.25 is better for daily use. Temps are much lower too which is nice.

Anyways, thanks for all the help in this thread and I think this is definitely a fun little throw-back chip.

I can get 4.8 @ vCore 1.37v vccin 1.82v and vring 1.17v. 4,9 is possible with vCore 1.44v and vccin 1.95v but i will stay with 4.8, maybe i will try 4.7 for 24/7 and rise to 4.8 when gaming. IntelBurntest sucks. in this one my CPU is "STABLE" 4.8@1.335 so its useless program. Firstly i run prime95 for 1-2h an then play a game with prime still on (ehh these fps tongue.gif) for 1 next hour. then i know its stable xD

intel burn test uses avx instructions. They are dissbled on that cpu. So that stress test is not gonna work right on the pentium.

can i test my cache stability (i wanna oc it now some but i dont want to up the ring voltage so its not big oc) with prime95, x264 stabilitytest too?
