Hi all, today is my first day Over-Clocking, so please bare with me. So I've managed to OC my 4690k to 4.6GHz with no problem. I stress test it using OCCT and AIDA64, and my average temps after about 20 minutes (full load) are about 63c. So that's good news. However, when I try to stress test my CPU + FPU using AIDA64 my temps instantly start out in the mid 70's, and the test fails within a minute. Can someone please help me out, I'm new and dumb and could really use someone to baby me through it. Thanks so much in advance! Oh, and when I stress test the CPU + RAM .......CPU + CACHE.....CPU + GPU they all come out fine. It's just the CPU + FPU that shuts me down.

Sincerely,
James

Do you use some quick setting for OC or did you manually OC? Did you touch the multiplier or the BCLK? Did you set the voltages to a specific value or left it on Auto? What about LLC? Give us more information plz :)

No quick settings. I only used the multiplier. I set the specific voltage to 1.32 if I'm not mistaken. Idk what LLC is :( . No matter how many times I stress test it at 4.6 or even 4.7Ghz I have no heat issues until I add the FPU to the test. My last CPU passmark score was over 10k. It's just that damn FPU, and I don't know what to do about it, or how to stop it from causing instability. Thanks for the response!

I've got down to 4.4Ghz for the time being. Set the mulitplier to 44 and the voltage to 1.28. Getting an average temp on all 4 cores between 59-61, when I just stress test the CPU. And then when I add the FPU test, the temp immediately jumps 10 degrees on average. I just want to figure out a way to keep the FPU temp's down when I go back up to 4.6 or 4.7.

Well, FPU stressing is a really heavy stress for any CPU and that way, if u pass the test it ensures that whatever you throw at it, the CPU won't crash. It's all natural to get such temps. Now, your CPU cooler is a 120 coolermaster AiO? If so I don't think you can OC that high with it. You might want to get a Noctua NH-D15 or a CM Hyper 212 EVO or a Cryorig H7. Anyway, set the voltage to 1.32V with the multiplier to 44 and test it at CPU + FPU then post a screen here.

Well I ran some quick tests on my 4690k for comparison. My system needs 1.35 vcore to stabalize aida64 with the fpu test at 47x. Even with my custom loop I was seeing temps hover around 60 so the temps you add routing seem about right to me. Looks like you will need to tweak the system more to stabalize at that super assuming you have the thermal headroom.

Are you trying to stabalize 47x for a daily OC or are you just seeing if you can do it. If you are shooting for a daily OC why 47x. Are you doing something that will benefit from the speed? If not I find 45x is plenty day for most things and you can keep voltages and temps down by staying there.

Post up some screenshots like itachii said and we will try to help.

Well there's three reason's that I'm trying to hit 4.7GHz. 1.) Because I'm a gamer, and proc speed adds FPS(CS-Go) 2.) I just want to see if I can do it on my first attempt at OC'ing 3.) I'm going to buy a new system soon I think, and the faster I can OC this, the easier it will sell. With all that being said, I started off doing this for those three reasons. Now, I just really enjoy it! Btw, I ran Prime95 for 6.5 hours with my current settings, and no issues at all. Except my multiplier is at 45 not 44 as show in the pictures. bios 3.JPG bios 4.JPG


I'm currently running AIDA64 stress testing CPU + FPU. And after only 10 minutes I'm already way higher than I like to be.
