Hiya @pedrodowd I'm glad to hear you managed to sort the issue. Please if you have any other problems, don't hesitate to contact us and if necessary create a support ticket and we'll get to you as soon as we possibly can.
So the Intel i7-4790K is a very good chip for PC gaming and technically whatever you really need to do. The only issue with the 4790K is it likes to overheat a lot. I have found myself in the same boat. By default, the i7-4790K comes overclocked to 4.5GHZ which is okay except if you don't have a water cooler your technically screwed or you better get one fast. Even though if you have a water cooler, your still going to be running hot. I have found the solution & how to fix this issue. You probably don't know this but in your BIOS your settings for OC is most likely set to allow your pc to (AUTO) which will decide for you on what voltages to apply randomly which is DANGEROUS and you need to change that. You all probably know the more hotter your CPU is and stays it shortens it's life-span especially if it's over 80C. Before moving onto fixing this issue, please note, I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR THE DAMAGE! Anyway how to fix this issue? I have attached a screenshot below so you can see my voltages etc. You may follow my settings but please be aware, I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGES.
STEP 1: DO NOT USE THE INTEL(R) EXTREME TUNING UTILITY OR ANY OTHER 3RD PARTY OVERCLOCKING TOOL BECAUSE IT WILL HARM YOUR PC EVEN MORE.
STEP 2: ONCE YOU FIND THE VOLTAGE YOU WANT WRITE IT DOWN, HOWEVER MAKE SURE IT'S CORRECT OTHERWISE YOU RISK DAMAGE TO YOUR CPU.
STEP 3: ONCE YOU HAVE FOUND THE INFORMATION YOU NEED, RESTART YOUR PC & GO INTO THE BIOS OVERCLOCKING SETTINGS DIRECTLY.
STEP 4: SAVE YOUR SETTINGS & RESTART YOUR PC.
PERSONAL SETTINGS I USED ARE BELOW WHICH YOU MAY USE IF YOU WISH BUT REMEMBER, I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR DAMAGES TO YOUR CPU.
- Disabled Turbo Boost
- Changed the voltage settings from Auto to 1,21 V
- Changed the CPU Core ratio to 44 (using the multiplier of 100 = 4.4 GHZ)
