Got a couple of questions :-)
1- What cooler and motherboard are you using?
2- Some people say the mobo plays a part in how well the CPU overclocks, most people say it's just extra features with more expensive ones...

I'm confused
My ASRock Z87 Extreme 4 is possibly more stable than the Gigabyte Z87X-OC (that or my CPU just isn't what it was). The gigabyte does however work better with really pushing memory due to allowing vDIMM above 1.8v

Well I tried and tried and tried and hell even tried some more.

The 4770k didn't have anymore to give. I've tried every different configuration of uncore etc and nothing.

Is what it is. Oh well, no Rookie Rumble #9 for me.

Got a prime run up my sleeve still to take back #1 in that stage.

Going to try and get the 3528 XTU run up a bit over the weekend. ALso got to get some subs in for the AMD rookie rumble. I'll be more than happy if I can make it 3 in a row.

Will get a 4790k after I get back from holidays and have a functioning race car again. Mighgt buy a couple and see if I can get a good one for benching and one to put in my gaming rig when I finally get around to putting it back together.

@Jack Harry.

Mate, I'm running a Gigabyte Z97-SOC board and have 360 rad attached to my test bench.

It really depends on how much you want to spend and what it's for. If you are looking for a 24/7 OC. I personally wouldn't use one of these boards I'd go for one of the actually gaming board as it would have more than enough features for a good 24/7 OC.

If you are looking at what we are doing and just benching chips then it's your choice of manufacturer really. Everyone here uses different boards and it doesn't seem like there is a lot between them if everyone has decent chips.

Sorry probably should have given more info when posting first comment on this forum

I'm upgrading my i5 to an i7 because of hyper threading and obviously higher clock speeds

The machine will be a 24/7 OC for video editing purposes and the occasional gaming.
So I'm trying to find optimal settings of clock speeds while maintaining an efficient machine (power)

I've bought the 4770K for $300 and I have the option to return it if I want a swap for let's say a 4790K for another $90.

Dilemma I'm facing is, do I have a good chip and try to set it up and find out. OR bite the bullet and get the 4790K Batch L4 for the extra $...

I'm sure you guys can give some good advice

4790K brings nothing to the table

Except the possibility of better temps and clocks if the 4770k is a dud (Delid seemed to fix a lot of them thought).

My last 4790k would only go 4700@1.31v for 24/7. Benching wouldn't go much higher even though the temps were still good. Limited to 5 no matter the volts for 2c/2t.

Clock for clock, same chip. Standard, different animals.

There's only one way to find out if you have a good chip, and that's to try it. Batch is one thing, actual end product is another depending on where in the batch it's from.

Maybe I'll just get a couple more 4770k's and delid them and hope for a decent one.

I wouldn't go that far. I think you'd probably have more luck with finding a better 4790k due to the better power delivery. Each to their own and price contributes.

Second hand 4770k's will be easier to get a hold of.

Yeah just been looking now. Brand new 4770k's are a lot more expensive to get a hold of than 90k's. Will look around when I have the funds to bin a few and find a beauty.

Yeah for an air/water cooler 4790k is the way to go. Temperatures are much better and in general clocks are too. The issue with them is that many don't scale with high voltages under LN2, but that won't worry somebody benching on water.

Cheers mate.

It appears one of my workers has come in and seen me this morning and has sorted a constant supply of DICE. Best of all it will be free!

So I'm off to try and find some pots.

At least if I started driving now he would have 12 hours to run and hide.

What pot is it Newlife?

Hopefully one time I'm in Perth somone will be doing some Ln2 stuff and they don't mind me watching and learning. But, that won't be for a while.
