Is this good for an 4790k OC? - Page 2

post #11 of 16
XTU Stress isn't very good, it's bench is better but of course you cannot loop that. If you try something, you can use the latest Prime and simply disable FMA3 via the text file.. the clocks / volts look fine to me and temp obviously isn't a problem. As above also use HWInfo..

*cups face into hands and cries* Your prime just fecal mattered all over my happy thoughts of being stable haha. Half hour in my system went NNNNNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOPE.

Back to the drawing board.

That just happened to me the other day wink.gif. 4.6 GHz v27.9 (AVX1) prime stable for 8 years, then I ran the latest to check FMA3 and crashed in five minutes... LOL. Had to use 4.5 GHz instead.

I can add a little light to this too. I just OCd my 4790k yesterday. I started two months ago with the stock cooler and only OCing it to its boost clock of 4.4ghz. That ran perfectly but when I would run the EVGA CPU burner, the temp would almost instantly skyrocket to 100c and also throttle itself to 3.7ghz at the same time.

Well yesterday I came home from best buy with a Corsair H100i GTX. Installed it and OCd it right to 4.7ghz. Left everything else on auto, and re-ran that cpu burner test. Not only did the temps not budge over 70c with that same 100% load, but it was doing it with more voltage and higher clock speeds. Thats -30c less because I ditched that stock air cooler for a $120 liquid cooler. And now the idle temps are 29c-31c and in games never goes over 50c. Get a dope cooler and Im sure prime95 wont even be able to push it to its TJMAX.

If you want to drop temps even more de-lid the chip and use Coolabratory Ultra liquid ...... that's good for a 5-15C drop. wink.gif

I might try that but at this point Im super happy with the results from the new liquid cooler alone. Its amazing.
