i7 4770k average OC

Hello guys! I just executed my option to upgrade my i5-4690k to an i7 4770k... Ignoring today's AMD dominance I opted to go cheap, as I always do. I find this old chip hard to OC. I can go 4.6ghz with my old i5 with 1.22 volts, while this i7 can't even pass 4.4ghz at 1.3 volts. I know this i7 is older than my i5, but I just wanted to know if this is all normal? I passed some quick test at 4.4ghz with 1.35 volts, but with temps hovering just below 100c, I am not comfortable with it. I am now at 4.3ghz with 1.25 volts with temps hovering around 80c. Is this an average OC or I got a poor chip, or rather banged up chip? Hoping to hear from you guys still running this old dog. Cheers!

Your i5 was devil's canyon which typically clocks quite well. Your i7 is Haswell based which often times tops out around 4400 to 4500mhz. Sounds like your chip is a pretty typical example of a 4770K.

Also love the pedal setup in your avy. Looks like lots of fun for racing sims.

The PSU is not all that great and might be one reason why the OC cant go higher
Ripple suppression is not terrible but its not all that great either

Its not because of psu.

4690k and 4790k overclock better than 4670k and 4770k. 4.6ghz on 1.22v is great even for 4690k,and 1.3v for 4.4ghz on 4770k is about average oc,maybe slightly worse than average.

If you paid more than 50-60 usd for 4770k, you wasted money

I dunno if that's entirely true about the price. Old i7's seem to hold their value pretty well. I was looking at getting a 2600K for my NAS build and they are settled right around the $65-75 price range. And with Haswell being two gen's newer I'd expect to pay at least $100 for one.

Thanks for the response guys! I payed around 85 bucks for it. It's pretty much the same situation of people now that got into the ryzen hype. People with 2600 or 3600 will want to upgrade to a 3700 or 3800 in 3 to 5 years time. The PSU has good reviews back in 2014. I know a lot has come, but all I need is a working PC with good gaming capability. I don't wanna dish out 700 to 1k buck for a new PC. I planned to use this PC for as long as it's capable. I didn't plan to use this for 10 years but if it can go there, then why not. I built all of this back in 2014 with an R9-290x, all brand new. I'm not a competitive gamer, just gaming as a past time. I'm happy and that's what matters I guess. Even if I payed 150 for it, if I am satisfied then it's all worth it. I guess I'll just keep it at 4.3ghz... I don't know what it's previous owner did to it. If it dies, I still have the i5 for back up. Thanks all!

It does, that you are very right about. But the Ryzen doesn't install into my existing board. And it's not a gaming build it's solely a network attached server. There is more going on than just a straight forward price/performance valuation.

Also I had a Ryzen 7 1700X @ 4.1Ghz. Good chip but not a whole lot more powerful in practice than my 4970K @ 4.7Ghz.

Oh yeah, I'd grab an R5 3600 anytime if it can fit to my mobo. There's really no dilemma here. Just the old stuff being upgraded. If my PC dies now I'll definitely build a ryzen based PC, then the same will happen in 5 years time. I will upgrade a CPU or GPU from second hand market and then the new stuff by that time will outclass anything from the second hand market. Isn't that normal? Thanks for the OC replies guys. The value is out of the question. This is the platform I'm stuck with right now. It's the best CPU for me ATM.

My point was, no use of upgrading at somewhat hefty cost those old platforms, it is not the same as upgrading from 1600 or 2600x to 3700x for example (1-2 gen newer, plus 2/4 cores more). You gained a HT and lost about 400mhz from 4690k if you kept him at 1.3v. Not worth it IMO, not even close. Maybe if you got 50-60 usd for i5 and payed 20 bucks for upgrade, then maybe
