up and together
Will get better pics with the side panels and glass on it tonight.
Thought I posted this but, I might be going slightly mad...
Some realbench at 5Ghz
Installed my Asus Maximus X Hero, i7-8600K & NZXT Kraken X62 yesterday!
4.8Ghz is stable at 1.26v for me. I got it to boot at 5Ghz using 1.32v but temps got way too hot hitting about 82-85C and my CPU fans were hitting 100% which is really damn loud.
So far soo good.. I think I need to remount the Kraken X62 though. Temps are a lot higher than I was expecting based on reviews of that cooler. I had some issues getting it mounted at first so I think I screwed up the thermal paste a bit getting it mounted to the CPU. Might have gotten an air pocket or poor contact in parts of the cooler.
Not so much you could do apart from de-lidding.

EDIT: Nevermind, I have already received a result and confirmed that I will be purchasing a 8700k soon!
Hey...Welcome to the forums...I'm sure you will get a response soon...
You thinking of getting 8700k to?....welcome to the club!
Thank you! Well, I was, but now I've decided to purchase one soon!
The best result in svpmark would be a firstname.lastname@example.org......
Same with Gaming...>8700k is the new 2600k. (legendary brother stuff)
Honestly I’ve just been leaving mine at 4.7Ghz all core boost. It stays around 70°C on Prime95 and destroys every game I play. FM7 maxes at 1440 is staying above 120FPS at all times. I love this CPU. I played with the OC a bit and was using it around 5.1Ghz but I kept getting workers stop in Prime95 it was getting past 1.37V at that point so I stopped. Plus temps were getting close to 90°C.
I wonder how it does in old UE3 games that were bottlenecked by a single thread.
Do you have borderlands 2/ TPS?
i just tested both Borderland 2 and The Pre Sequel for about 15 minutes....
at max ingame settings (and some forced extra AA via nvidia control panel) @ full 4K with vsync limited to 60 FPS on GTX1070 and i7 8700K @4.7
max Cpu usage was a short peak moment of 21% cpu load while playing (average 14 - 18%)
max CPU Temp was 51°C for a couple of peak moments (but lower while actually playing)
(vallues read in msi afterburner)
just ran another test on borderlands 2
nvidia control panel: set up everything as high as possible (to increase loads on gpu and maybe the cpu)
Only DSR factor and V-sync were disabled...
tested again @ max quality settings ingame @ full 4K with vsync disabled and inlimited framerate ingame...
results fps never went below 85 (with fraps)
CPU load had a few peaks of 40% load but in game never went above 21% workload while actually playing the game...
CPU temp was the same 51-55°C for a couple of peak moments (but lower while actually playing)
(again vallues read in msi afterburner, i know i'm lazy...)
There's nothing interesting about BL in general; it's just the fact there are quite a few CPU bottlenecked spots that peg 1 core to 100% usage.
In Presequel the quickest spot to test is concordia.
One spot just hits 1 core hard for seemingly no reason.
I don't have BL2 installed. I will set it to install. Any area you would like me to test specifically? Also I will try out Battlefield 4 SP campaign. I remember a few spots that were un-playable for me before.
Do you have both games?
I can screenshot an example or two
i just tested the pre sequel in concordia specifically for about 10 minutes...
once at max ingame settings (and some forced extra AA via nvidia control panel) @ full 4K with vsync limited to 60 FPS on GTX1070 and i7 8700K @4.7
max Cpu usage on cpu core 2 (in afterburner) was between 85 - 100% for at several moments (mostly when multiple characters were walking and talking close to a shop and me of course)
lowest loads on cpu core 2 was between 35 - 40% (all other cores newer went over 30% load ingame)
then i ran the other test:
nvidia control panel: set up everything as high as possible (to increase loads on gpu and maybe the this also affects cpu a little?)
Only DSR factor and V-sync were disabled...
again @ max quality settings ingame @ full 4K with vsync disabled and inlimited framerate ingame...
results fps never went below 75 (with fraps)
so i had a lower minimum fps in concordia compared to other levels...
max Cpu usage on cpu core 2 was between 95 - 100% for several moments (again mostly when the characters were talking close to a shop and me)
lowest loads on cpu core 2 again between 35 - 45% (also: all other cores newer went over 40% load)
(again vallues read in msi afterburner)
i think (not certain) that all possible interaction in concordia with characters/quests/vendors etc. all crammed into one small map is the culprit for the high cpu load
Look who decided to show up for the party.. Goodbye weekend...
L733C495 Batch. Looks like 5GHz under 1.3v easy.
Blessed the hardware gods may be!
Mine is L730C307 so far it ain’t a great clocker with the limited time I’ve messed with it. Though I have not done anything but play with multiplier and Vcore.
What clocks/volts you got Loop so far? Delid? Temps?
On a side note, coming from the Asus M8H, the overclocking options in Asrock Extreme 4 bios are quite, well, lets say underwhelming.
BUT, this board and the new system in whole, feels a lot more stable vs my previous 7700K/M8H with the same ram and all else. Just swapped mobo/cpu. Didn't even do a fresh install on the 950 PRO.
Can't pinpoint why, but it just works. No hassle, no errors. Overclocking was a breeze even with the"limiting" bios options vs the M8H etc.
Quite glad and satisfied I went with Z370/CFL so far, even if tho I would had preferred the 8600k(€130 cheaper) tbh but I'm sure the a bit overpriced 8700k would do me fine.
