Haswell 4770k - what Uncore do you use on your OC? (Cache ratio)

megastarkey

I have been reading a great deal about Haswell lately. I have noticed people are starting to state using the base uncore is just as good as using uncore 43 plus.

So, what uncore (cache ratio) and voltage do you use?

Thanks,
MEGAStarkey

Overclock in this order of priority:

CPU
Memory
Cache speed

When you get to cache speed overclocking raise it to the limit of voltage you are comfortable with and that the speed does not impact you stable CPU overclock. Lower cache speed does impact performance but is really not noticeable outside of some benchmarks. Setting it lower than x39 as some users are reporting doing will impact daily performance and is just plain silly.
