Hello all ,

I finally get my hands on a I7 4790K cpu with MSI z97a Gaming 7 Motherboard.

I have just overclocked my cpu to 4.7ghz

but my ring frequency is stock which is 4ghz for 4790k.

The system just passed 24hours stability aida test so i know its stable

but i am curious about Ring/Cache Frequency

What it does ( since i was amd user i have no idea)?

Currently it is 4ghz with vring 1.150v

Do i need more or less?

Any Real World Benefits of having high or lower than core frequency?

sorry if its been asked before but i am pumped up and very exited about my new toy

You can overclock uncore frequency if you want. I think this is the clock speed for the North Bridge. Doesn't have an impact on performance really.

I got mine at 4.2 GHz Uncore with 1.2V ring voltage. Yours will probably work fine with just 1.150v. I keep mine 400 MHz or more lower than the core clock.

There isn't much of a difference in performance when overclocking the cache on a 4790K, but you can absolutely try if you want to.

Thx

i did more digging around and found some discussion about it shoud be in range of 300-400mhz lower of core clock

So I did some Tweaking in my bios 4.4ghz gave out instant error with 1.150v and

find out 4.3ghz is stable as rock with 1.150v so i went with it so far passed 1 hr stability of aida64



after 1 night of gaming I will do 24 hr aida to make sure its close to perfect stable.

But i can say there is no difference in cinebench and 3dmark firestrike between 4ghz vs 4.3ghz.
