    Overclocking 4690k on Asus Maximus Ranger & Coolermaster Hyper

    Greetz.
    Here is a link with my system, i have been running it at 4.2ghz for over 10 days, at 1.062v (stock voltage), rock stable. http://valid.x86.fr/vpt1qv
    And now my question is: i want to get out of it a 4400-4500mhz. What voltages do i need to raise, beasides vcore?
    Also a friend said that 1.062v is a very low voltage for 4.2ghz and suggested that i should raise it coz it would "damage" the cpu?
    Thank you and greetings.

    I don't know who your friend is but the lower voltage you can run your cpu stable the better. The lower the voltage the better cpu you have.

    Before we begin what cpu cooler and psu do you have? Is that the hyper 212 evo?

    Yes, CM Hyper 212 Evo is the cooler.
    So i should't worry about the cpu degrading at lower voltages?
    The PSU is a corsair vx450w, pretty old, i need to change it, but it held with no problems a Q6700 @3.5ghz (1.36) with no freezez or crashes.
    Thank you for the reply.

    Yeah you definitely want to upgrade your psu, that is what can cause component damage over time if it can't supply enough power to all your components. There is nothing to worry about if you can run your cpu at a lower voltage and be stable in fact, that would put a big cheesy grin on my face.

    If there are no problems with your psu try this:

    Go into the bios and hit F5 to set defaults and set the ai overclock tuner to xmp. Sync all cores and raise the cpu core ratio to 44 and the cpu core voltage to 1.20v. If you get a blue screen try 1.21v if it blue screens again try 1.22v. keep raising it .01v up to 1.25v until you are able to boot to windows.

    Download these 3 programs:

    Real temp 3.70
    cpu - z
    ROG Realbench

    Open up real temp, cpu-z and ROG Realbench. Run the realbench stress test monitoring cpu -z for the cpu voltage and real temp for cpu temps.

    Run the stress test for 5 minutes and post the maximum temperatures real temp is showing.

    If you have any questions just ask.

    So i only need to raise the vcore in order to achieve that frequency?
    Thank you for the reply, i will be back with feedback as soon as i get the "results".

    Yep all you need to raise is the vcore. You only need to raise the system agent voltage if you are unstable with high speed ram or higher capacity than 16GB. This applies to the IMC (integrated memory controller) on your cpu.

    Please post your results.

    Temperature controls how far you can overclock your cpu, this is why I want you to post your cpu temps for me. We need to make sure they are in the "safe zone".

    Ran a temperature test with Asus ROG, but at 4.2 so far, here are the results. http://i.imgur.com/v9J1L8X.png
    Also i increased the frequency for 4.3ghz atm with a voltage of 1.12v, i am scared of going @4.4ghz so fast so i am thinking it would be a better ideea to increase it gradually.
    The other voltages are stock, i only increased the vcore @1.12v, 10 mins of stress testing so far and the systems seems stable for now.
    CPU-Z Validation here: http://valid.x86.fr/a13b5
    I will be back soon with more info for 4.4ghz, i also hope i can reach 4.5 too.
    Thank you for the feedback and i hope thid helps someone with a similar configuration.

    The cpu-z page does not come up but no worry.

    There's nothing to be afraid of as long as you can keep temps in the safe zone.Your temps are great and I think you can do 4.5GHz and still be in the safe zone.

    Please post your results.

    We are using realbench to make sure your cpu is stable, what you want to focus on is your gaming temps. After you get 4.5GHz stable, open up real temp and play the most hardware demanding game you have for a bit (10 - 15 minutes) and post those temps too please.

    Greetz, i am back with the feedback.
    I was able to achieve a frequency of 4400mhz with a vcore of 1.16v, i will try to lower it at 1.15, but i need to see if it's rock stable 1 week at this value.
    Here is a CPU-Z validation: http://valid.x86.fr/v7cba9
    Also a screenshot with the temperatures: http://i.imgur.com/28ZTzh4.png
    I need to get a second fan for the cooler CM Hyper Evo, the current one is only 1200rpm, at the temperatures are pretty high, i hope i can save at least 5' with a 2000RPM front cooler, and the default one for outake in the back.
    Thank you for the advice, and i will be back in a week with the results/voltages for 4.5ghz, which i hope my cpu can achieve.

    Back with another feedback so far.
    I was able to raise the cpu with no stress @4.5ghz, 1.18v. Here is a cpu-z validation: http://valid.x86.fr/zsm4u4
    Atm i am running some tests to see what the temperatures are, they seem to be pretty fine in my opinion, here is a picture: http://i.imgur.com/C3EaSFc.png
    Is the voltage ok for this frequency? Should i further attempt to decrease it if the system is stable. Also, are the temperatures ok?
