so im still new to all this overclocking, i've been doing my research a lot lol. as it stands im at 4.4ghz with 1.275 vcore, cache ratio at 35x, cache voltage at 1.200v and CPU input voltage at 1.900v. my temp during aidi64 is 60C

i have the i5-4670k Batch#: L314A984 ( cant find info about this batch) made in malaysia
my CPU cooling is the hyper 212 EVO
my Mobo is asus z87 plus

my question is about my settings, is that good with air cooling or can it be better with some tweaks. not sure what to tweak here because bringing down the Vcore causes it to freeze. any recommendations are appreciated.

second question: is it better for cache ratio to be same as core ratio, i have read multiple yes and no forums but not any about my processor with 4.4ghz so im asking you guys. Where im at would it be best to change to 44x cache ratio or keep lower.

Thank you for your help.

that's amazing for a malaysia haswell. according to most of the literature most of them can't break 4.2ghz short of delidding them. looks like the malaysia fab is starting to make them a bit better. good news for haswell purchasers. frankly that's pretty good for any haswell. right around 1.250v their temps tend to shoot through the roof. so you might be nearing the end of your overclocking. that said, assuming those temps are right you still have a little room for a little more. i'd go for it!

No, he meant that you have a GOOD chip with additional room to OC even more.

Congrats!

Thank you for your input YOGI. I guess im just a little bitter because some people i have seen get 46 with 1.2v or less and im over here shaking my head lol. I am happy to have a haswell that has broke the barrier. I will keep tweaking and find the max i can get on air and heatsink. I like the idea of water cooling but im nervous about it because if it leaks im in trouble.

first of all, there is always a lottery to overclocking. even if you delid every haswell, there will be some that won't overclock over 4ghz anyway. its in the nature of the beast, you never know what you'll get.

Anyone clocking their haswell up to 4.6ghz on <1.2v vcore has a golden chip, delided or not. that's a 1 in 20 or 1 in 50 chip. basically they won a lottery. without deliding and without a custom water loop, the average haswell overclock is something like 4.3ghz on 1.250v vcore. some foundries produce better overclockers, apparently thus far the foundries in the caribbean seem to be producing the best overclocking results for haswell, while on average the SE asian foundries produce the worst.

I would be ecstatic. not only is your haswell a good overclocker with potentially more room for overclocking, but it came out of a notoriously bad foundry for haswell chips, Thats like winning 2 lotteries at the same time. just be glad you're not forced to delid your malasian haswell, spend a few hundred on a custom loop, and still can't get it over 4.2 ghz like apparently is happening to some people.

be happy my friend, you've got a very nice chip. if more haswell overclocked like yours it would be a lot easier to suggest haswell over ivy bridge.
