Nice CPU. Have you tried topping it out? How high stable with reasonable voltage and settings?

Nah haven't tried yet still ecstatic that I didn't kill the chip when I thought I had did earlier :)

I did a quick 32 million SuperPi run 5ghz @ same 1.21-1.23v on XS at request but that doesn't even count for much stability above boot stability, LOL.

Based on what I've seen from other ppl's similar lower voltage chips, 4.9ghz would take 1.28-1.3v and 5ghz 1.33-1.38v probably.

I've found my 24/7 4.8ghz overclock at 1.21-1.24v for now, maybe I'll test 4.9ghz in the future, no need now for 5ghz at the higher volts.

In the meanwhile, since I have the extra Liquid Pro and Alumina and proper delidding experience now, perhaps I'll delid that other 3770k I bought just in case I killed this one.

A brief look at it when I was using it ( since this chip wouldn't boot for 5 min after delidding surgery) looked like a 4.7ghz at 1.21-1.24v chip - a very excellent 3770k but not quite as good as this one - that one will go in my spare rig or pehaps on sale with my 4.8ghz lapped Sandy chips (1.328v 2600k and 1.344v 2500k).

Looks like you won in the silicon lottery.

My friend has a Malay batch 3770K, and he can't get past 4.3GHz with a NH-D14 :laugh: :roll:

Sweet overclock there. Costa Rica FTW! :respect:

Wait a sec... by your system specs, you have your 3770K on custom WC right? And even de-lidded you need 1.4v? That's some BS.

Intel, c'mon. :shadedshu

LOL like I said its the lottery not all oc the same a lot can't even get past 4.9 on reg cooling

If I put it on the single stage I need less then 1.3 for 5ghz

Also I'm not using Liquid Pro and I'm getting some new fans for the Rad only been running 3 fans on the 480 for a while lol

Got some corsair sp120 fans see how much they help :)

Also this is is an older cpu my first one when they first came out its been trough a lot and it does run 1.2v @ 4.5

Frogger - nice batch that 3231B415, huh?

What is your serial number on the box BTW?

Just trying to see if a certain range yields better chips.

My 3770K just went poof and went to silicon heaven. Had a pretty bad power surge, but this means I get to go to MC this weekend and swap it for a new chip :D

Had batch #3229B506 1.28v for 4.6ghz so it was average. Hopefully I get blessed by the OC gods :respect: :D

Yeah that MC $19 option is pretty awesome to replace or upgrade your chip even if u kill it by delidding!

Just a budding theory of mine but when u go if they are all the same batch try to get one with the last 4 digits of the serial as close to 1000 (above or below) as possible, preferably a little higher than 1000, but refuse any less than 0200.

I'll see if I can find a chip close to that, if it sucks it's all your fault :p

But again with that MC warranty, I LOOOVE it. I've used it an insane amount of times and they don't even question why I return it. Paid 130 for a 955, returned it a year later when it cost 90. They gave me 130 instore credit so I got myself an 8120. Killed that after a year, returned and got another. Returned that one last month and got myself a 3770K with the credit. Now I shall return the 3770K and get another :D

Have also used it on my mother and father's work builds when their CPU's get messed up and they never question anything as long as you have the receipt, and even if you don't they just look you up in the system :D

I won't return a bad clocker (feel too guilty about a perfectly working chip) but closer to Haswell when I get another 3770k I'll buy the $19 so I can upgrade to a Haswell.

My theory is that the ones less than 200 are the crappy edge ones on the wafer, 1000 the sweet spot, and 2-3k decent.

Just checked the S/N of my #3229B506 chip and the last four numbers are 1604. Chip is average tho. Might be able to drive down tomorrow night once I get off work if it's not snowing.
