I finally found a sweet 3930k. It runs at 4.6MHz on air. I installed a Corsair H100 cooler on it and it runs 4.8MHz With 1.34v in bios.
Now I just cannot get it to run prime95 at 4.9 I am up to 1.375v in bios and temps are hitting low 70c range for 30 mins or so before BSOD. I have not tried changing any other voltage settings yet. Load line calibration is set to High.
hey all, the upgrade itch has hit pretty hard and its not going away this time! I was planning on going 4790k with Z97 setup (Asrock OC Formula), but a sweat deal came about wherein i can get a 3930k with a hig end Gigabyte g1. Assassin 2 mobo for a little more ($500 for the new 4790k & Asrock OC formula vs $650 for used 3930k & Gigabyte's mobo).
Hi guys, I'm new in this and since my english is not so good I hope that you will understand me.
Well, couple years ago I bought MSI Big Bang motherboard with 3930K processor and machine was for video development, so I would like to overclock it but I'm not sure how to do it safely. For cooling I use Corsair H100with stock vents.
