4.7ghz with HT or 4.8 HT off

Recommended Posts

So basically as title says wondering which would be better , I'm able to clock my 4790k to 4.8 with 1.43v which is high I know but I'm on water temps are good . But with HT enabled im getting BSOD. 4.7ghz however with HT enabled doesn't , so which is better for flight sim? 4.7 with HT or 4.8 with out

Cheers

Riche

You dont mention which sim you use, but Nick Needham advises for P3D2.5, to turn HT off when using his settings. Those settings work great for me, so I've got HT disabled.

 

But 'best' settings tend to differ per system, so I think your best bet would be to just test both settings and see which suits your system best.

HT = more heat which means less stability. AFAIK, neither FSX or P3D gains any benefit from HT being on so try to use the higher overclock if possible. Obviously it goes without saying that stability should be of primary concern as you go higher..

Yeah cheers for replys, I don't see much difference in performance wise with HT ON anyways so HT OFF with 4.8 it is then,

Thanks!!

Define: "temps are good"

 

I hope, at the very least, they're beneath TJMAX. I also keep HT off in P3D as I've done some extensive testing and saw an improvement ranging anywhere from 5 to 10%. No AM.

I'd say HT off for FSX.

Q1) What flightsims do you mainly use?

Q2) Did you also need 1.43v for 4.7GHz with HT off?

Q3) Did you stress test the system at 4.8GHz and 1.43v?
