7,1GHz overclock on i7 4770k problem

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I tried to overclock my i7 4770k and I have ran into a few problems, i used AI Suite 3 and also tried it manually.

When using ai 3 all went grand until my CPU kept going up and up to the point I got worried and stopped the test

It went all the way up to 7114.0 GHz and did not seem like it was going to stop, after the test finished all the rest of its tasks i rebooted into the bios and i could see that the core ratio was 71,but after booting into windows and checking task manger it still showed the stock value of 3.5GHz ( after one attempt it went up to 3.51GHz )

I have also tried it manually to try and get a 4.6 GHz overclock(which is probably the best OC for the i7 4770k from what i have read it can go to 4.8GHz but i haven't tried that yet) but every time i log into windows and check task manager its still says 3.5GHz

What am i doing wrong ?

Here is a short video of my attempt


Processor: Intel Core i7-4770K Box, LGA1150
Case: FRACTAL DESIGN Define R4 Black Pearl
Cooling: Thermalright HR-02 Macho Rev.A (BW)
Motherboard: ASUS Z87-K - Socket 1150
Ram:2x ADATA 4GB Premier DDR3 U-DIMM PC3-10600 1333Mhz and 2x Silicon Power 4GB DDR3 1333Mhz DIMM 240PIN PC3-10600 RAM
GPU : Sapphire Radeon HD 6770 FleX Edition
PSU:Seasonic G 550

Thanks

Jay

Yeah, I would just stop using the AI suite before something breaks, or better yet, uninstall the bloatware altogether. Just do a manual overclock, there's countless videos on Youtube or read up on Haswell overclocking thread.

I would reset bios to defaults immediately and not touch that AI suite again. Try going manual again and see what happens redface.gif

Why are you trying to overclock to 7GHz with regular air cooling (and medicore RAM too)? You'll fry your CPU.

Clear your CMOS and do a reasonable manual overclock of <5GHz.
