Using EZ MODE i applied the air cooling scenario and that resulted in overclocking our 4770K to 4487 MHZ using a 1.25V voltage.Memory was overclocked also by a mere 50 mhz due to BCLK increase.
Our benchmarks consisted in running stock and overclocked test consisting in:
- PCMARK 8,Home and Work conventional scenarios
- REALBENCH,a benchmark consisting in rendering,image and video editing with heavy multi-tasking
- CINEBENCH R15
Manually tuning i got a maximum BCLK frequency of 184 MHZ,a nice result but clearly lower than our 199.5 MHZ obtained using Maximus VII GENE.
The CPU also reached 5200 MHZ for validation while i could run my kit of G.Skill F3-2600C10D-8GTXD to a 2800 9-12-12 S-pi 32M run,DDR3-2860 was not a valid option even for booting,a result clearly below S-pi 32M DDR3 2860 9-12-12 obtained by Maximus VII GENE.
