i5-4670k overclocking questions

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.

I recently found out that "A" in the batch number means. Less voltage more heat. Idk how I feel about this, should I get a new chip and request a "B" chip. I ordered from newegg and it hasn't been 30 days yet. Should I return it and request a "B" batch chip. Or work with what I have.

Thank you for your help.

You have a little wiggle room on Vcore but not much. Maximum Vcore is 1.3 volts. Don't go any higher or you'll drastically shorten the life of your CPU.

From what I've read, the most stable results can be obtained with a cache ratio slightly less than the CPU ratio. There is a slight performance penalty however, the higher CPU ratio obtainable makes it worth it. You might just want to experiment and see how it responds to a lower cache ratio. Simple enough: See if you can increase your CPU multiplier and get a stable OC by lowering the cache ratio.

You've got 60*C. under load in Aida64 and you want something better?? Keep what you have! 60*C. under load is the lowest that I've seen for a Haswell OC.

I seriously doubt that Newegg will sort through their inventory to find a particular chip for you anyway.

No problem! Good luck with your fine tuning!
