Nice Overclock. I have the same problem with Corsair Link, it always shows 4-7 degrees above what RealTemps reads. 

Topic: I5-4690k Devil's canyon. Why cant i get past 4.3Ghz?   Go to last post

My 4690k is cooled by a corsair h100i on a MSI Z97-G55 MoBo. I want to get my CPU up to 4.5 Ghz but, when I try going up to 4.4 my system black screens and i had to reset the cmos. I raised the voltage to 1.2v since the temps were perfect even after 6 hours with prime95 (maxxed at 52 degrees Celsius) , and it still black screened. I don't know if I just have a bad chip, since i've seen people get it past 4.5ghz in their setups.

Its mostly about preference. Although Intel CPU's are more advanced than AMD (also more costly). Intel's Haswell chip has a 22 nano-meter architecture(smaller chip better power efficiency). While AMD's FX-series chips have a 32nm architecture. Having almost double the TDP of Haswell. Example: FX9590's tdp is 220w, the I-7 5960x's max tdp is 140w. Granted, the 9590 has a much higher base clock speed.

I was just talking to my buddy about using this processor in the next AMD build I do. Winning this comp would be beyond helpful! Good luck everyone!
