Quick question... What where the thermals like on the 4820k when @4.85?

Good review.. I'm feeling less remorse now.. I would put it as comparable to a 3770k.. Though I might have gone 4820k if the OC temps are good.

from what I have read so far, it sounds like temps are EXTREMELY well behaved with the 4820k and you hit a frequency/voltage barrier far before you hit the thermal barrier with basic water cooling loops.

Thats what I gathered but was looking for rough numbers... It's the only thing at this stage that would have made me go x79.

FYI....had my 3930K stress testing at 4.8 Ghz last week with peak temps around 85c (1.4v).....that was with room temp around 22c and H100i .....was all stable with 15 runs LinX, now we'll see what the Swiftech H320 can do ;)

Really getting bored with my i7 970 (@4.0). The 4930K is tempting, if I can get 4.5ghz out of it perhaps. I don't want to lose any cores from the 970, even if I rarely make use of them.

Appreciate the early release of your tests Sky. Thanks again!

Temperatures @ 4.8GHz were ~83C on a Noctua NH-U14S after 30 minutes of load, ambients at 24C.

I wonder where the frequency/voltage barrier is then for the 4820k. It looks like the 4820k is overclocking to 4.84GHz on very little voltage for an overclock.

Oh, that's more than I was expecting. So were you hitting a temperature ceiling?

Not at all. Temperature ceiling on these processors is much higher before it becomes a bottleneck for OCs. If we were talking 88-90, then maybe.
