    Absolutely nothing gets throttled here on 4Ghz and disabled Turbo Boost Short Power Max.
    (Power / Current Limit, Thermal - ason Intel Extreme Tuning Utility)

    But on regular settings there ist throttling all the time with absolutely no difference in performance, no matter what the fans do. My fans are running 25% most of the time which is quiet acceptable while CPU stays around 40-43C most of the time. At 30% the noises start to get unpleasant...

    Let´s see... with your suggested settings, fans would be spinning from 50-75% here all the time up and down and up and down... Horrible for me! And there would be zero advantages, zero difference in user experience, whatever. All the same, just a hell louder.

    But well... anyone as he or she likes... Have fun...

    btw we should agree that Q-Fan control is just bs - I´d rather set wider temp windows with stable rpms than changing speed all the time according to actual temp. Can be seen on Macs.

    I'm of the opinion that firmware is the best place to run motherboard fan controllers, but Asus Q-Fan is a poor implementation. Really, Asus BIOS extensions are all rather sloppy to my mind, and it's pretty bad when many users don't really trust the motherboard firmware is really doing its job correctly, lol. I think that add-on (and self-powered) fan controller hardware accessories offer finer control and greater confidence.

    Your fan settings are probably better for you. My fan settings are intended to keep my machinery running hard and heavy in a hot (30C-35C) ambient, for me the added fan spinup/spindown cycles (and noise) are less annoying than lost performance. Just user preferences, and you seem to have approached a good balance.

    Hi Paul,
    How did you do undervolt in G20 bios?

    I`ve got 2 Q`s:

    -Among you who upgraded 4790 to 4790K on G20, are you satisfied with the results? how much (in scale of percent) have you got improvements?

    -Have your tweaked it or no just running the 4790K on its standard clock mode?

    Intel Extreme Tuning Utility

    BIOS does not offer ANY CPU / RAM modifications at all.

    I´ve upgraded from 4460 to 4790K and I´m running the CPU with disabled Turbo Boost Short, 4Ghz + -70mV Offset.

    The performance gain is very huge, of course.

    As long as the 4790 is not running too hot I would recommend not to upgrade to the K version.
    I´ve bought the 4790K to have a CPU as cool and economical as possible on regular 4790 speeds.
    The result is very nice, since I get 45-50C and 25-26% fanspeed on regular desktop usage. (Well, using Firefox....)

    Anyway I found out there might be another way to reduce the CPU temps (or get more speed):
    DELIDDING

    By removing the heatspreader and replacing the cooling paste with liquid metal the CPU should run 10-20C cooler !!!!
    I am really considering that... Since it´s winter here and thing will change in summer time...
