Finally joined the club after not quite being able to on my i7 950 that stopped at 4.8

Quite proud of myself this evening, even if it only ran for 2 x 1m SuperPi runs :P Temps at idle were pretty good and it only locked up after trying 1m for a third time. Idle was sitting at about 39-43C across all cores. 1.400 VCore and 1.330 VCache

Wow grats.

 

That's fantastic. It's not easy to achieve 5Ghz. What sort of cooling do you use?

Corsair H105 with Performance Edition SP120's in push and Performance Edition AF120's in pull. 3 x Quiet Edition AF140's on LNA's for exhaust from the case.

 

This was a BIOS overclock too. POST and Boot to Windows 7. Pretty sure I could get it stable if I dropped the RAM from 2400MHz to something much less stressful for the memory controller. No BSOD, just a hard lockup after about 10 mins.

you're 0.2mhz off :P

also, how much does it take to get stable long term? Temps anywhere near safety shut off at load?

1.2 actually, gotta love those FSB fluctuations. I figured that 100 x50 is pretty much being there :P

Temps were completely fine for the time it ran - idle in the high 30's so somewhat like a minor OC on air. Haven't retried again yet as I've been busy getting my PC gaming master race on after 8 months with only a console for company.

 

I am pretty sure it will run for longer than 10 mins if I drop the RAM from 2400 to 2133 or even 1866. I saved the settings in the BIOS so I can re-attempt at any time >:D

 

Oh, and even though it's a given, Hyper Threading was indeed turned off past 4.9 (boots and runs stable at 4.9 with HT, I think this is the 3rd time in a row I have won the silicon lottery)

I always thought 5ghz was easy for 4790K's seeing as they turbo up to 4.4ghz...

Really keen to see how a 5ghz 4790K go against an FX9590.

my 24/7 OC is 4.7, could do a direct comparison if I had a 9590 :P
