I have a G4400 processor. I know it's not an awesome one but still I can do my works fine.

My system is water cooled and never gets over 70C under full load and I'm satisfied with that. I may tweak the power settings to allow less voltage if idle.
I did run that HWBOT benchmark and it chewed it up no problem smile.gif

Seems I was a bit premature with my voltage at 4.7GHz. I was getting screen lockups with 1.344. I've since changed my bios voltage to 1.355 and all seems well. Voltage can go as high as 1.409 but I'm OK with it. Max CPU temp while folding is 80C with no lockups :-D

Lock-ups, if you've raised your cache it's likely due to that. Instead of raising vcore you should try dropping cache down by 1 and see if you're good then. As an example, I see this with 48/46 with my volts but when I drop it to 48/45 I'm all good, that drop from 46 to 45 for cache means nothing.

Don't know if it has been posted here already but I am curious to know how much of a difference it would make to get an 6700k over the 6600k when primary usage is gaming.

I know current games will not even utilize the 4 cores of the i5 but with dx12 coming up it looks like the 6700k would be a better investment.
Got a fx-8320 at the moment.

Overclocked it comes out in the wash for gaming. The 6700k's larger L3 cache might give an extra 1 or 2 fps

Ths skylake cpu stops you from getting lower fps than the 4790k, so you get better average fps as well.

Thanks.

What is your experience in overclocking. I've read about most reaching 4.5-4.6ghz. And I also see you have yours @ 4.6.
What is keeping yours back? Is it temp? Am curious to hear some experience from people with the Skylake's.

That's really in the margin of error. Can't care about 1 or 2 fps. smile.gif

Uh, what?
I don't understand the first part of the sentence. But higher avg fps is always good. tongue.gif

Well i wrote it right smile.gif, lets say in a game with a 4790K like GTA you get minimum 40fps, with a 6700K your get 50fps at the same point, so your average overall fps will be higher, few benchmarks out there showed this.

because GTA V utilizes the CPU more than the GPU since it's a port of the previous gen.
in up coming games, GPU is more important than the CPU. so I would say if someone already has a 4th gen Processor, no point of upgrading as DirectX12 API is more into GPU utilization. close to metal, less overhead to CPU are fine proofs for that.
