Failed Realbench after 7 min at 1.32...4.9is good enuf :)
Maybe later on at night after this 90+ deg heat wave passes or another night when the air conditioning is on :)
Not going for 5ghz stress testing on air, I like this chip too much, LOL!
But here is firstname.lastname@example.org for you, 74c max - not bad at all!

I like the Cougar Vortex series and also use the Cooler Master Sickle Flow fans too.
Just ordered these Enermax fans from Newegg since there is a...
No for me - there is little to no improvement over an i7-4790k - so not worth the new processor, DDR4, and motherboard (easily $600-1000).

Haven't been here for a while, but I've changed my Haswell Stress Testing slightly.
I use 2 tests now, x264 Stability Test V2 or the Asus ROG...
siliconlottery.com has pre-binned chips.
I have a delidded one on eBay now too.
But outside of eBay it would be 10% lower.
Yeah I like it too, as for most ppl x264 encoding or BF4 is the most stressful their CPU will get.
Try the other looped one too - I passed x264...

Gonna wait to see how the first retail batches do (Malay vs. Costa Rica) and, of course, for a Microcenter Combo!
Someone translate what a 113w overclock is.
Thanks similar to my batch good luck with your sale!
What is the Batch number of the 4770k?
That is a pretty nice adjustable stand actually compared to most of the Korean IPS and PLS monitors off eBay...
Yes you are at the sweet spot for your chip unless you delid.
Definitely need more ram, 2x1gb minimum but 2x2gb ddr2 preferred for Win 7.
New 2x1gb will run you $30 and 2x2gb $50ish.
You can probably find a...

Nice 2700k - how many volts for 5ghz stable?
I'm in the same boat but haven't sold - still got my 4.8ghz 2600k rig, 4.8ghz delidded 3770k rig, and...
