Delidding and OC-ing 7700k What went wrong?

 Share

Got all the right tools and delidding the 7700k. Got liquid metal, thermal grizzly, and even a copper IHS. 

 

The system successfully turned on. Ran Cinebench, geek bench at ratios of 45 and 46 and 47. AIDA64 successfully ran for 30 mins for those ratios too. 

 

Decided to push it a little further to 48. Ran the aforementioned stress tests. However, with AIDA 64, things got a little hot and showed a small level of throttling. I clicked "stop". All was well, and I wanted to check my email before I shut down, and opened a new tab on chrome. Instantly the system gave me the "Your PC ran into a problem" Blue screen and the thing now doesnt turn on in that I can't boot into Windows. Mobo, PSU and GPU seem intact as they run when I start the system. 

 

 

What went wrong?  What are the usual suspects?

Running at 1.23v all the way through. Temps were alright. high 50s to high 60s stable. The case doesn't have great airflow tho. Its my tiny itx silverstone sg13. 

Running at 48, it reached low 70s and by the half hour mark, it touched 80'c, hence I decided to stop.

80C at 1.23v, what the heck!? Is the voltage set manually? What cooler are you using?

Yes. This figure was the stock figure when I first received it. 

I'm using the NZXT x42

Not the best cooler, but since this is what you have I would try to open up as much airflow as possible. you aren't going to go very high if you can't bring those voltages up above stock. IMO the delid wasn't really worth it in this case.

Nothing went wrong it's just not stable, clear CMOS and start again. 80C isn't really that hot if you're running a 140mm radiator in an ITX build, real world usage will create temps quite a bit lower than stress testing will. Considering 1.35V is probably average for a 7700K at 5GHz it's not that surprising it wasn't stable at 4.8GHz 1.23V.

but i've already delidded it tho lol 

so i guess I'll raise the voltages?

The system successfully turned on. Ran Cinebench, geek bench at ratios of 45 and 46 and 47. AIDA64 successfully ran for 30 mins for those ratios too. 

 

Decided to push it a little further to 48. Ran the aforementioned stress tests. However, with AIDA 64, things got a little hot and showed a small level of throttling. I clicked "stop". All was well, and I wanted to check my email before I shut down, and opened a new tab on chrome. Instantly the system gave me the "Your PC ran into a problem" Blue screen and the thing now doesnt turn on in that I can't boot into Windows. Mobo, PSU and GPU seem intact as they run when I start the system. 

 

 

What went wrong?  What are the usual suspects? 

1) Warning: Don't mix metals. Liquid metal + copper have nasty reputation. 

More info read here (CLICK ME !)

2) If it doesn't boot, reset bios CMOS. You probably are running in a low voltage overclock failure.

So I guess I'll use thermaly grizzly paste for the copper IHS then?
