4790k @4.8 GHz Delidded

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Snagged one of the 4.8GHz chips last weekend with the delidding on sale. Arrived yesterday and put the chip in today. Ran the recommended settings and passed an initial stress test with flying colors. Compared to my old 4790k @1.309 vcore vs the new one I got today @1.325vcore i'm running anywhere from ~13 degees cooler during load. I will continue to play with the chip to see what I can do with it. Well worth the money spent. Thanks guys! thumb.gif
