I5-4690k partial stability

Hello,

I have been trying to stabilize my OC in the past few weeks and there is some issues, would like to have so different opinion about it. 

Computer is:

I5-4690K OC to 4.5Ghz with 1.250V

Gigabyte Z97x gaming 7 

Gigabyte Gtx 1060

 

The CPU on idle is around 42-46 c

After AIDA64 for few hours average around 75 and max 82. I'm happy with the temperature on max load as AIDA64 really not simulating real-world temp, with day to day work (editing, browsing, gaming) it is maximum average around 65c.

 

When I try to enable C3 and C1E, the OC is not stable anymore, even with additional Voltage, with C states disabled there is no problem at all to work fluently. 

Any suggestion why?

Thanks.

C states suck, dont enable them. I got 4.7GHz at 1.335V on my I5 4690K with mid 80s in temps iirc, cooler was an NH-D14 with Fracral Dyanmic fans on it

I spent $2500 on building my PC and all i do with it is play no games atm & watch anime at 1080p(finally) watch YT and write essays...  nothing, it just sits there collecting dust...

Builds:

The Toaster Project! Northern Bee!

What PSU are you using?

Turn off c states

 

Even when I'm idling at 5ghz my CPU barely pulls 27w with all states disabled

C States are power saving options, which are the opposite of overclocking which is something that makes the CPU use more power

 

If you want to save power or run the CPU at low frequencies you'll need to underclock and undervolt.

I just want it to not always run on full 4.5Ghz and full 1.250V, so the C1E looks like a good idea, it is probably more cooling issue than C state. Thanks.

As long as it stable with no C state, there is really other reason why not to OC with it? And would it explain why with C1E it would be unstable? Or is it just C states not stable in general.  

I should mention that when it crashes with the C1E - it just restart the computer, no blue screen or anything, might point to PSU problem.
