andrewharley89 Posted January 10, 2016 Share Posted January 10, 2016 Hello, first post, but was hoping someone with much more knowledge than I could educate me a bit. I'm currently overclocking the 4790K I just received and after benchmarking using XTU I got a score of 1084-Marks. However, when looking at the posted results from other community members, I see results with a 10% increase in Marks at lower frequencies such as 4.6Ghz. Now I know that pure frequency isn't the only thing that matters, it's how you get there, but does anyone happen to know what the parameters are that allow lower clocked CPUs to score higher? System information, just in case it's needed to accurately address the question- CPU : i7-4790K @ VCORE 1.325v with VCCIN 1.850v with x49 multiplier and 100Mhz base RAM : 1600Mhz DDR3 @ 1866Mhz CL10 @1.5v Motherboard: ASRock Extreme4 (this board came out with alot of issues, but it's the latest revision with the issues "fixed" and I couldn't help but pick it up for $85 from MC) I would greatly appreciate any insight that could be provided, thank you for your time and assistance.
