Thread Starter 
hello im new to overclocking, im looking to overclock my i7 4790k what do i have to do i know the basics of how to work the bios and everything i just never have overclocked before and im told my cpu is great for getting some extra power. Im not looking for anything crazy just something that is simple and can help with gaming

Which motherboard did you end up getting? I just started overclocking my 4790k to 4.6 this week by simple using the overclocking options in my ASRock.

I'd be careful with that, make sure you manually set the voltage. Your motherboard could be spitting out more voltage than is actually needed.

How much should it have?
post #5 of 8
Try 1.25 v

4.6 should require something around 1.26v. 4.7 could be around 1.3v. I'm just taking these as average voltages for those overclocks. Once you find a stable voltage decrease incrementally until your CPU is unstable siding stress testing. Then increase the voltage up incrementally two times and that will be your stable voltage.

This guide is for original haswell but the Devil Canyon Oc the same way just usually better oc.

http://www.overclock.net/t/1411077/haswell-overclocking-guide-with-statistics

Dowload x264 "the cool stressor" from above front page. Use that for stability. Passing 20 loops is going to be very close to stable.

Try 4.8ghz 1.250. if it gets to the desktop run 2-3 loops x264. if your vcore way off it will crash fast.

If it fails push vcore to 1.275v repeat. If it fails again push vcore to 1.3v. If 4.8 1.3v does pass drop back 4.7 1.250v and work up to 1.3v again.

Leave everything else on auto except set cache to manual 4.2 1.2v and input voltage to 1.85v.

Hopefully you get the idea. These cpus do 4.5-4.9 ghz at 1.25-1.3v depending on silicon lottery (quality of cpu).
