Overclocking i5-4690k (Devil's Canyon) - Help Please

Hello there! I need help with overclocking my i5-4690k to 3.9ghz. I can't seem to understand any guides that I have found so far except for this one:

http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/id-1722630/intel-god-quick-dirty-guide-4ghz-haswell.html

The only thing is, I don't really know what settings I should have for voltages and other stuff for 3.9ghz. Any help is appreciated! Thx! :)

    Just the general Haswell guides should more or less work. 3.9 Ghz isn't exactly stretching it, I think that is the boost frequency to start with. You should easily get 4.3 or 4.4 Ghz out of it. Do you have adequate cooling?

    Not to argue with Intel God, but Vin seems a bit high. I think I am running 4.3 Ghz with 1.9 Vin. But his guide is quick and dirty.

    For you Vin probably 1.8 or 1.9, vcore 1.1 - 1.2 to hit 3.9 or 4.0 Ghz.

    small edit, was remembering the wrong cpu.

    Thx for the quick reply! New to overclocking I guess the settings will look something like this then?

    44x Multiplier
    CPU Cache multiplier 35
    Fixed CPU VCore 1.25V-1.30V
    CPU Cache Voltage 1.20V -1.25V
    Vin 1.8V-1.9V
  3. To hit 4.4 you might need a little more on the Vin. Always watch temperatures when overclocking.
