Love the 4790k

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I don't usually join any websites. I felt I needed to thank you for your service. Wish I had found you when you had the 5k chips. I had a dog 4770k that never could do above 4.4. Volts and temps were a bit high also.
I'm very happy with your 4790k. Was able to get it to 4.9 at 1.325 volts. I settled on 4.6 at 1.245 volts. The temps are so low. It idles at 30c to 32c. Hit a new personal best on Fire Strike Extreme at 6009.
I can't use the 4.8 or 4.9 and get a complete pass through the Mark bench. It crashes open CL/adapter, or what I call a soft crash. It must be a voltage issue, or maybe my z87x?
I can get it through other stress benches at your claimed setting for 4.8

Thanks, and maybe never be back.

Thanks for the kind feedback! Glad you're enjoying the processor, the 4790K is still a beast even today. thumb.gif
