overclocking scrub i7 7700k 5GHz @1.3V Stable so far

im new to overclocking and it seems like most people have issues getting to 5 GHz? or am i wrong? i seem to be getting to it at 1.3 whereas i see alot of people at like 1.375V at 5 GHz max OC they can get...

about to go try 5.1 GHz, what should i set voltage too to test that???

I will be actively talking in this tread

  1. Yeah 1.3v to 1.4v is normal for 5Ghz. Long term you don't want to go above 1.35v because at any point in time the chip can just die without warning. I don't think that people can't get 5Ghz but no one wants to kill a chip just for 100-200mhz.

  2. It seemed to be at stable 5.1 GHz @ 1.375 my temps were averaging just under 80C and spiking up to 94 occasionally, Obviously for the 7700k that is normal to have spikes, so unfortunately i cannot test it

  3. delid you cpu. You have a good chip :)

    I reached 5.0ghz at 1.29v and decided to leave it there. I never see above 60c under full load after my delid

    You shouldn't go higher than 5GHZ then because your temperature is already too high for 24/7, you wont get noticeable performance in games for 200mhz difference. Not only useless but stupid too. Unless you are enthusiast, delidding not recommended, cus performance gain from extra 200 MHZ is unnoticeable.

  5. Deliding is not recommend for beginners. Getting it apart is easy with a auto delider that cost $30 but afterwards you have to apply liquid metal (properly) and reseal it. This is where you can really easily screw up. Unless you have money to burn or really have experience, do not delid it.
