    Talking Z97M with 4790k

    I am getting this mobo soon and wondering what OC features it has and how much has one overclock this CPU up and being stable. I got water cool and DDR3 2000+ memory from corsair. Any tips?

    Z97M OC Formula, Z97M Pro4, Z97M anniversary, or Z97M-ITX/ac?

    Also, great that you added the specs for your other PC, but how does that help us with the new one?

    4790k oc to 4.5-4.7 is not too hard ... after 4.7 require a lot of voltage. I'm doing 4.6 and 4.5 now .... I'm on Air. 4.6 hit 90 in occt small and IBT ...
    4.5 it hit 80-81c max on all stress test ... trying to lower the voltage on 4.6 if can get it to 85c then i stay with that.

    * note... don't oc Cache. wait until latter cache don't offer much but will hinder higher oc. i set my at default 40x ( some time even 38x) .. when stable i'm up to 43x now

    I am getting the Z97M OC Formula. Is there a Anniversary version and what difference is that? Is there a way to when start up ...... given the option to oc automatically (average speed) to like 4.5 or less for the 4790k?
