Overclocking study – Intel Core i7 4790K & Intel Pentium G3258 – air, water, phase-change, DICE & LN2

Did you like the results we got using the extreme water cooling methodology? Or maybe our beer cooled rig? Do you want to try this at home? Well, you could be one of the lucky winners that do!!! Our friends at EK Water Blocks are offering one EK-Supremacy Clean CSQ – Acetal for one lucky LAB501 reader !!!

Again, this giveaway is opened for international readers, so it does not matter if you are from USA, Russia, Japan, Germany, Indonesia or Romania – if you enter this giveaway you can be the lucky winner of a cool EKWB waterblock, just like the one we used in our review!!! It works with water…or chilled water… and even beer!!!

The request is very simple. Please comment on this article by July 21, 23:59 Romanian time (16:59 New York Time, 21:59 UK time) answering these two very simple questions:

1 – At what frequency did the Pentium G3258 ran fully stable using extreme water cooling?
2 – What maximum frequency did we achieve on Intel Core i7 4790K using LN2?

Rules:

-The contestants must post a reply for this article with their answers (see the “Leave a reply” box bellow)
-The comments will be approved after the contest ends, so no nobody can take a peak at the right answers from the others participants
-You must fill in a valid email address when you leave your comment (in the “email” box) – this is how we will contact you and send you the prize in case you win
-The contest ends on July 21, 16:59 New York Time – 21:59 UK time – 23:59 Romanian time
-The contest is open to all readers from all over the world, except LAB501 and EKWB employees and relatives
-The winners will be designated by using Random.org
-The winners will be announced on July 23, 2014
-You can only submit one entry for the competition (we will be checking the emails and IP addresses)
-The prize will be shipped by EK Water Blocks directly to the winner

Good luck !!!

    16. You had to go up to like 1.35V or higher to get your 4790k to almost 4.8ghz?
      I set my BCLK has high as it would go at stock (101.5), set voltage to 1.30 fixed, set multiplier to 50, knocked it down until it would boot (48), knocked it down to temperature within operating ranges (47), and then tweaked the voltage down until it stopped, then set it to Adaptive, with a max of just above where it stopped.

      result: 1.23V 4770.5MHz

      Then I bumped CPU Cache till it wouldn’t work anymore, at 45x.

      Max temp at 86 degrees. No matter what I set voltages to I can’t get it to operate at 48x without it constantly going into thermal throttle. Works fine at 47x.
      I can even get it to do 48x on one core, so long as I don’t start up GTA V.
