Max temperatures recorded were 66C average of 51C.
I'm still trying to go lower voltage.

I have a water cooler H100i v2.

I tried to go to 4.9 and I got blue screen with 1.295V during the stress test.


Do you think I should go for 4.9 with higher voltage?
Or keeping at 4.8/1.28 is fine/safe?

Thanks!

Your temps are well within the safe range and your voltage is still what I would consider to be low. Push a little more volts and 4.9 should be attainable. probably even 5.0 if your cooler can keep up. It seems like you have a very good chip thumb.gif

first gratz on winning the bin lottery got yourself a good chip there.

i7 4790k at 4.8Ghz max core voltage 1.28V is really good overclock if its stable.

Try running aida 64 1 hr test and 10 runs of realbench to see if you are stable enough also if you are not in a hurry couple hours of gaming is what really stresses your system and checks for overclocking.


To get 4.9 most chips will require more than 1.35v to get here so i can assure you its not worth the pain if you can get 4.8ghz stable with anything lower than 1.3v

1.3v should be your daily 24/7 safe voltage.

as overclock speed if you should be aiming for 1.250v 4.4Ghz - 1.275v 4.6ghz - 1.3v 4.8ghz.

if you can get it stable 100mhz higher with same voltage go for it but going more than 0.25 for 100mhz is not worth it to me.

Good luck and may your cpu temps be low and fps be high.

Lol I gave up oc'ing my 4790K when 4.7GHz froze in game at 1.33V
This chip tears my overclocked 3570K to shreds anyway, even at stock 4.40GHz

Stress test is borderline.

Gaming temps are fine.

You got a semi golden chip! 4.7ghz on ~1.3v is pretty decent.
Word, You're fine.
