polo dress pants How to check if CPU is overclocked

Your CPU is supposed to have a maximum turbo boost frequency of 4.4 GHZ without disabling Turbo Boost or changing any other bios settings. However it seems like its up to 4.5 GHZ and 45 x setting, barely 1 bin above max stock frequency. I wouldnt consider that an overclock, especially with a K series processor. Assuming that CPU Z is correct (yes it can be wrong, unlikely but possible) technically you have a very minor overclock, which could come from your Asus Z97 P motherboard’s default settings. I also see that its set to go up to 46x max turbo freq. Make sure the temperatures are ok, because that is what really matters. What would bother me, IF I were in your shoes, is that the heatsink was clearly used. Now I take it you bought it new, right? But if someone else used it before you, then its not new. Hell, if the CPU box has been opened it not new for me. You said there are “leftovers” of thermal paste on the heatsink, surely you dont mean the stock thermal paste applied by Intel, correct?Your CPU is supposed to have a maximum turbo boost frequency of 4.4 GHZ without disabling Turbo Boost or changing any other bios settings.

It was my first build, i was stressed, i was struggling with installing the motherboard and i wasnt focusing, i didnt even find the intel sticker inside the box, but the box wasnt opened . it had intel stick tape and no trace are left behind in the box itself . anyways, the tempeture is around 70 80 C Edit: well the thermal paste was not “clean” and “pretty” as i have seen in the unboxing videos . so i assumed it was used?It was my first build, i was stressed, i was struggling with installing the motherboard and i wasnt focusing, i didnt even find the intel sticker inside the box, but the box wasnt opened . it had intel stick tape and no trace are left behind in the box itself . anyways, the tempeture is around 70 80 C Edit: well the thermal paste was not “clean” and “pretty” as i have seen in the unboxing videos . so i assumed it was used?

If the box seal tape wasnt ripped or otherwise tampered with, then its reasonable to assume the box was unopened. Its up to you to decide since you are the one that looked at it and opened it. I have no way of telling you. Your temps seem average, not great but not bad either, for this CPU with the stock cooling solution. it had intel stick tape and no trace are left behind in the box itself . anyways, the tempeture is around 70 80 C Edit: well the thermal paste was not “clean” and “pretty” as i have seen in the unboxing videos . so i assumed it was used?

Indeed, an i7 4790 is exactly the same as an i7 4790K but without the unlocked multiplier. Even if you wanted to overclock, that stock cooler is very limiting. I noticed you are using the integrated graphics by Intel. I assume this isnt meant as a gaming pc then?VID is at 1.31 volts, it is only very slightly higher than it should be. No surprise since the bios settings are stock. Indeed, an i7 4790 is exactly the same as an i7 4790K but without the unlocked multiplier.
