Getting the most out of your machine:

CPU: 4790K

image

Have gone from BIOS F6 to F7

Motherboard: Z97X-UD3H

Intel Devil's Canyon Core i7-4790K CPU Cinebench results

http://www.theregister.co.uk/2014/06/30/review_intel_devils_canyon_cpu/

So possible 10% increase in perf going from 4.4 to 4.8

Look at BIOS update..

http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=4960#bios

latest is F7 – 19/06/2014.  Had to format a mem stick to Fat32, copy the files over, then reboot and run the flash update in the BIOS.

Overclocked to 4.5GHz

http://www.overclock.net/t/1490835/the-gigabyte-z97x-overclocking-guide – Changed the Performance Upgrade switch in the BIOS

image

no overclock (4.4GHz.. or 4.0?)

image

4.5GHz

Also how to find drivers http://social.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/9adcf4df-0dfd-47f0-a955-2dd1cb56e151/driver-question-pci-simple-communications-controller?forum=whssoftware

Installed :  Intel Management Engine Inerface.. got rid of 1 device not there.

And an INF update.. all good.

EasyTune.. need Gigabyte AppCenter utility

image
4.6GHz

image

4.5GHz… with newer BIOS.  not good…ahh was running other tasks

image

4.5GHz.. much better (80% on motherboard)

image

4.6GHz.. (100% of motherboard)
