I'm running an AIO water cooler, and when I do 4.9 @ 1.325v I'll hit 82 C on my hottest core. I (think) I've attached a photo of my results of the lowest stable frequency/voltage combinations.
The interesting thing to note is that my girlfriend's rig has the same CPU, cooler, case, everything (except GPU) - but her 4790k starts hitting 80+ C when she runs 4.6 @ 1.225.

Both of our chips are stock - no delidding. Makes me wonder what my chip could do delidded...I'm pretty sure my instability above 4.9 is due to temeprature. Chip may eek out a 5.0 on all 8 threads, or 5.1 with HT off.
Alas, I'm not brave enough to delid...yet. Just got a promotion at work though so my bravery may increase when I have more money lol.
Yeah, man! The voltage is all over the place from chip to chip. I saw people hitting 4.9 on 1.3's weird

I am scalping mine this week, here is some info if you would like some info and parts I bought myself after doing extensive research from Youtube to forums here and there

Went back to 1.26 volts on air, and it's stable after running in Aida64 with Geminii S524 cooler (thermally and stability wise)

Looking forward to delidding, it will give a nice temp drop. I am not even sure I will go back to water now. Because temps look phenomenal for my set up

Never thought I will be debating between air and water again. I have H115i Pro coming in mail from Corsair, but now I don't know if I need it.

Going to check the sound of that pump, and see if it's silent, with no buzzing like H105/H100i

I can make this computer completely silent now, as I have fan controllers on the back of the case to reduce sound completely. I can hear my refrigerator more in the kitchen from my room, than PC in my room.
