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!
