Intel Core i7 4960X Review - PCSTATS.com Intel Core i7 4960X Review
Tue, Sep 03 2013 | 2:04AM | Filed under: CPU / Processors| PermaLink Posted by: STAFF

Overclocking on the Core i7 4960X was bit of a disappointment after pushing to over 4.7GHz on the Core i7 3960X Sandy Bridge Extreme with a core clock of only 4.44GHz possible on this chip fully Prime 95 stable. At 4.44GHz I had to push 1.42v through it to gain stability. A push to 4500MHz needed another boost in vcore that really was too high for daily use on Intel`s 22nm architecture long term. It could be just my sample and is hopefully not the norm or average for the 4960X."

Any major computer upgrade generally requires a full software reinstall too. No so if you heed the advice in the guide to Upgrading a Motherboard without Reinstalling. PCSTATS Tips
