    Default i7 4790k & MSI Gaming 5 overclock help?

    Hi

    I have the MSI Gaming 5 board and an Intel 4790k CPU. I'm a complete n00b when it comes to these things so I've just been running the auto-overclock feature which keeps the clocks at a constant 4400 MHz. I'd prefer a manual overclock at something closer to 47~4800MHz. The chip has already been delidded and is under water cooling with liquid pro applied to the die so temps shouldn't be an issue.

    I'm after some specific settings for my board/CPU combination to try out. Thanks.

    id also be interested in some tips, i pretty much did what you did, but i set my multiplyers to 47, and worked my voltage down and ended up with it at 1.28V stable under prime and it boosts up to 4.7ghz, so im guessing i did something right!

    I came from the AMD family and so far id never go back!

    What I did to find my max OC, was set everything to Auto and manually set the vcore to stock, and set the multiplier to 44 to start, then slowly went up with that and when I ran into stability issues I'd up the voltage by 0.05 each time to see if it would stablize, once I found it stable, I just worked the voltage down a little each time till it lost stability, then bumped it up a little bit, I actually did a little more messing around last night and found out my wall seems to be 4.8ghz@1.35,

    I just did a quick search and found this easy guide. I would think you could maybe take it a little higher with the delidded cpu. This was on the Z97 MPOwer Max. "Overclocking the 4790K was very easy; the only things needed to be touched in the BIOS werethe CPU voltage and the CPU multiplier. The process for this was to see how far it would go while staying stable. Starting the CPU voltage at a high level of 1.45v was done to find the highest stable clock, which ended up being 4.7GHz. Working down the voltage in steps was done to find the lowest stable, which was 1.29v. These settings proved to be very stable when paired with a closed loop water cooling system. The highest the 4790K was able to go on a single core and thread was 5.15GHz" Good Luck.

    1.45 is too high. I wouldn't want to go above 1.35 for 24/7 use but I'll work with the other tips in your post. I'm only really after 4800 MHz as a max.

    1.45 was just the starting point and worked down from that. He ended with 1.29 @4.7

    figuratively you could set it at 1.3 and clock to 4.8 and should be stable for 24/7

    It's at 1.2350 vid a the moment and I'm sitting at 4700MHz. I'll run some tests to check stability on it.
