    i7 4790K Default Values


      I am not familiar with the overclocking but I afraid tried to do something. I researched about this subject and read a lot of pages. After a few changes my temperature values started to get higher when CPU is under stress.

      In normal usage the temperature is 45-50°C. When I try to benchmarking, it goes beyond 80°C and almost reach the 90°C.

      I am using Intel Extreme Tuning Utility which comes with MSI motherboard's disc. I guess I messed up. There is a lot of options to modify but the problem is I don't know which settings is the best.

      I know (According to my research), every hardware overclocking limits is different. I don't have a problem with that. Because I am no longer interested in this topic. I just want to set my settings to default at least.

      My native tongue is not English. I hope my writing is easily understood. Please help!
