  3. My Haswell chip is garbage
2 years ago#1
4670k with a Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO. I can only get it to 4.2GHz @ 1.24v (although trying for 1.235 now). Any lower voltage and it BSODs, and if I try 4.3GHz @ 1.25 it BSODs.

1.25v already gives me temps of ~83c on Prime95, so I don't really want to push it higher.

Anyway, make me feel worse by posting your 4.7GHz overclocks on stock coolers or something

That's pretty much what everyone gets on air and clc with haswell, lol.

I don't got haswell in the tower but I can get stable 5 ghz.

I don't get it, does that mean Haswell is worse than Ivy Bridge? I was going to get the exact CPU TC is complaining about for my build

Honestly between haswell & ivy there's like a 3% performance difference at stock. Almost unnoticeable but once you start oc'ing ivy gets better clocks.

did they fix the issue with Ivy overheating?

Such is your fate.

I have an IB at 4.4 on a cooler with performance really close to the 212 evo, it gets up to about 90 while stress testing all 4 cores but that's only in spikes, it hovers around 80-85 for the most part, I only need it on one core though and stress testing 1 only gets it up to about 65. To get that I needed like 1.32v.

IB really benefits from delidding though, I haven't done that.

If you mean the thermal paste issue, if you get a CPU today from those batch your unlucky.

Even then it's a quick fix...

What motherboard do you have? You probably lost the silicon lottery with your chip, but motherboards actually make a difference when overclocking. Hell, it's pretty much why anyone goes for anything other than the basic Z87 boards. Dem extra MHz.

My 2500k sits at 4.5 ghz quite nicely. I had to do some tweaking to make it stable beyond 4.4 ghz but it runs like a champ now. It's a shame it's harder to get high OC's on the newer chips.

I totally agree with you.

Your not going to be able to buy a 100$ MB and expect good oc's, doesn't work like that. Cheaper the build the lower the quality.
