Intel 4790k 100 DEGREES!?! - Page 7

post #61 of 86
Why do you even need it to run at 4,4 GHz? Underclock it to 3,4-3,6 . Few games need a 4790K at 4,4 GHz.

Tweak your bios,disable any auto-overclock options,disable the turboboost and set it to something like 3,4 or 3,6 GHz like said earlier,leave vCore to auto,that setting is dangerous when you start bumping the multiplier.

I have a i5 4440 at 3,3 GHz. Just downgraded from a 3570K. Can't see any difference and couldn't be happier with more money. I don't even hit 50C on the Witcher 3 with fans at something like 800 RPM and a H80i. Granted it's a little bit cold here,like 10-15 degrees celsius.

IMHO unlocked CPU's are a big gimmick,the regular one's do the job just fine. No reason to pay extra money to get more heat for a little more performance.

I agree

I like to see what I can get for the default voltage or even more with an under volt biggrin.gif

ur probably right im trying 4.6 on 1.225

4.5 got a bit too hot at 1.250'


Also on a side note.

No matter the voltage icouldnt even get 4.7 or 8 to not crash.

insta crashes on windows or prime.

-_- 4.6 on 1.25 also crashes

One thing I've noticed - your 212's fan is spinning rather lazily at 1400 RPM even under load. Have you tried disabling PWM control in UEFI and telling it to run the fan at maximum? If I do that I can get the fan on a 212 EVO to consistently spin around 1900 RPM.

I keep mine at 4ghz clock 24/7 on stock cooler. The 212 evo has been cheap as of lately though. I have yet to max it out in anything except using professional 3D rendering programs. I'd say the most any game has gotten it is 75%, and that's with uncapped above vsync FPS territory. I commonly run tons of stuff at the same time.

I primarily got the i7 over the i5 because of the extra 500Mhz base clock. I really see zero need to even bother to overclock. Really depends on what you're using it for, but for most home users, even shaving a bit off of something like a video encode isn't really noticeable.

Also keep in mind that even though there are 8 threads, overclocking isn't like running 8x4.6ghz. It's more like running 4x4.6ghz + 4x1.5ghz.

Overclocking shouldn't be difficult. Set the vcore and make sure it's locked, set the clock to 4.6ghz, see if it runs stable and you're done. You don't need to hone in every little voltage increment to see just how low you can go before it's unstable.

I would keep it at 4.4ghz 24/7 with a 212 evo, 4.6 would be pushing it.

Hey strangly enough , according to HWmonitor the 212 is in the CPU 1 plug which is not a PWM .

Ill try to max it. altho ive never seen it go above 1400 even at 90 degrees

Problem is the CPU will crash even at 60 degrees.

Guess i lost the lottery hard on this one

I'm finally seeing games able to run my 4790k...




That's after playing a mission in that game, "Warhammer End Times: Vermintide" (max/1440p/no vsync). If you look at the GPU usage it's not hitting 100% and holding. If I were to play most other games without limiting the fps then my GPU usage would hit 100% and stay there. well, 99%.

*2gb of system ram usage is from Ramdisk. Real usage would of been a little over 5gb system ram.

**I kind of agree that unlocked CUP's aren't fully needed. I use my 4790k at stock without issues. Still nice to know I can OC it if I feel the need. Also the price difference just isn't enough to justify not going with a unlocked CPU "IMO".

***Did you say your house is 50f - 60f? Bet you do get great temps. thinking.gif
