I would....do you NEED 4.4ghz to game? Or would 4.2 work? I run my 5820k at a daily clock of 4.250, and, really don't even need that. Running stock clocks aren't going to affect my gaming performance all that much.

Save the wear and tear, and high voltage for those important things.....like benchmarking....

Im thinking the same. 4.4 was fine for a year.

If 5ghz only improved the physics score by 60 points over 4.8, you weren't running enough volts through it.

You are right, the chip is not stable at 5GHz / 1.47v anyway and cannot run anything too heavy on the cpu, and with any more volts temps hit the top. wheee.gif

Here is the comparison between my 4.8GHz and 5GHz runs....

I seen many guys with H100i and Delidded 4790k @1.30v and the temp less than that by 10c at least..

Buy Coollaboratory Liquid Ultra to use under the IHS and gelid gc extreme for the H100i and the temp will drop 10-15c at least.. thumb.gif

Hey guys, have you ever had artifacts in a game that looks like a red/blue star twinkling? Like in this video @ 5 seconds:
It only happens in games, not windows. It occurs sort of occasionally (it's random, and basically the higher the overclock, the worse it gets). Should i be worried? I'm on the lookout for them in every game i play now. I'm playing Dying Light (Maxed out), and Witcher 3 (Ultra/High) on a ZOTAC GeForce GTX 970 ZT-90101-10P 4GB. Witcher 3 doesn't seem to do it any more if i lower my oc settings in afterburner to +185 core, and +698 memory (i can get up to about +224 core, and +700 memory, stock volting, without crashing in heaven benchmark, but some games will have a lot of artifacts). Dying Light still does it at those lower settings. @ stock settings i'm not sure yet. The card itself already has a small factory overclock, and other games work great so far, no artifacts, maxed out, and at my highest overclock (Mortal Kombat X, and Resident Evil 0 HD Remaster). I just hope it's the games (being sensitive to overclocking), and not my card. I don't wan't to damage it because i ignored the artifacts, or go through the process of RMAing.

And oh yeah, just in case. My card is not overheating. It's winter where i'm at, and i haven't seen the card go over 73c under load since i got it a week and a half ago. Also, what's considered an ok overclock for this card? I thought every 970 could easily oc and have a boost clock of 1400-1500mhz.

You're getting artifacts because your overclock is not stable.

Reduce your memory overclock
