Can i7 4770K be overclocked?

4.0 GHz can easily be obtained with your i7 4770K. Turn off Turbo Boost, C1E, C States and other power saving features. Set VCore to 1.250V (you can try using less volts, most reach 4.2GHz+ at this voltage ) BCLK @100MHz, Clock Ratio for all core active counts at 40.

What generation is the i7-950?

The i7-950 is a first generation Core processor which is now three generations and four years old. The 950 was included in the group test as a reference for how fast processors were back in 2009.

How much does overclocking the i7-4770k increase performance?

Pushing the Core i7-4770K to 4.7GHz increases performance by 19-26%, which is in-line with the rise in clock speeds. Our 4.7GHz overclock works out to increases of 21% and 27%, respectively, over the chip’s maximum Turbo frequencies for single- and all-core loads.

What is the best way to overclock a Haswell CPU?

Multiplier tweaking has been the preferred overclocking method for the last few generations of Intel CPUs, and it remains so for Haswell. The CPU frequency is the product of the multiplier and the base clock speed.

Is 4770k too hot for 24/7?

Intel Temperature Guide guy at Tom’s Hardware recommends no more than 1.3V VCore for 24/7, and mine does 4.4 GHz at that voltage with HT on and stays below 75C with a Noctua NHD-15S cooler. Your results aren’t bad, they are just normal for how bad 4770k is.

How high can a CPU overclock go?

It has been said only about 70% of current chips can reach 4.5GHz. There is a lot that goes into a high overclock to avoid damaging components in the computer, so make sure you read the whole guide before trying to overclock yourself. DISCLAIMER! WARNING! Overclock at your own risk.
