Howdy o/

Just joined up after starting to dig more into my OC ventures with my PC. Modest build I did 5 years ago with an i7-4770k cooled by a Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo, MSI z87-gd65 gaming mobo, 8gigs G.Skill Ripjaw memory, a 2TB Seagate HDD, and the most important piece is my EVGA GTX 1070 Ti I picked up about 3 months ago (initially a MSI GTX 760 Twin Frozr).

PC was running a stable 4.3ghz 1.2V OC and maxed temps at like 60*C. Currently working on a stable 4.5ghz OC right now with 1.28V and hit a max temp of around 78*C in a 15 minute prime95 test. Plan to do a long one to ensure stability but also wanna do a little gaming cuz...why not? From what I'm experiencing with my processor, and it may just be me, but compared to other people's experience I think I may have actually gotten a good chip in the lottery IF (and that's a big one) I am stable at 1.28V on my 4.5ghz OC. I've seen other people ahving to pump over 1.3V already at around 4.4ghz, time will tell.

Mainly playing CSGO at the moment with a little side hustle of American Truck Simulator or if I'm super drunk Farm Simulator 2017. But I plan to look for more immersive games, and build basically a new system with my bonus and tax return this year lol.

Yeah the 4770k had a really wide range of possible clock speeds, I've seen some members struggle to pass 4.2Ghz!
Either way most were able to do 4.5Ghz one way or another. If you're unable to stabilize it, it might be time to delid. Haswell and the refresh really didn't like thermals past 80c or so and once you passed the sweet spot it would take gobs of voltage to get it stable. I also have a 212 (poor decision, I was new) and it's keeping me from passing 4.7Ghz.
Finding games is a real chore these days huh? lol
There are several games coming out that seem great. Resident Evil 2 just came out, hopefully we'll get ports for Red Dead and Kingdom Hearts. Anthem looks like a great game too (and it's one of the reasons I upgraded from my 4690k with 8Gb).
Black Ops 4 is actually done really well for PC which is a nice change. Cyberpunk 2077 will launch this year too.


Don't forget to OC your cache.

I have read plenty about the wide ranging speeds for the 4770k. Seems like some struggled to get 4.2ghz overclocks while others basically "the sky's the limit". I'm shooting to get stabilized at just a CPU 4.5ghz and then look further. Would rather not totally mess my system up before I have a replacement.

And I get **** for wanting to go liquid cooling, but nothing calms my inner OCD more than a beautifully set up open loop system. Those look absolutely fantastic, like looking at a well designed exotic car. Just a bummer for me that the systems I've looked at on google probably cost upwards of $500+ to get looking the way they do.

Ok, so I've got my PC running stable it seems on a 4.5ghz OC and hit a max temp of 80*C on core 1 during an almost 10 hour prime95 test and that occured within the first hour. When I woke up nearing the 9 hour mark temps were all holding a steady mid-upper 60*C. My big question is, I am really looking to build myself a PC to more or less future proof myself for 10 years at most (i7-8700k or an i9-9900k). Is there even a market for used gaming rigs and something that is running on what I consider, old hardware? I built my PC 5 years ago and the parts list is as follows:

Intel i7-4770k with a Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo
MSI Z87-GD65 Gaming MOBO
2TB Seagate Barracuda HDD
8GB G.Skill Ripjaws memory (2x4)
MSI GTX 760 Twin Frozr SC Edition (I'm currently running an EVGA GTX 1070Ti SC GAMING ACX 3.0 Black Edition)
EVGA 650W PSU
Rosewill Blackhawk mid-tower case


How much would I even try to get for this on eBay or local if I were to sell it? My parents have no use for it as it is simply too big and my brother isn't interested in it either.

We have a marketplace an appraisal section just for that.
The case is almost always worthless because of shipping but you could get $3-400 for everything if you part it out.

I discovered that after making my post, my apologies. I figured cases didn't factor in much aside from high quality ones, I think mine was like $50 when I built this PC lol.
