I managed to oc my 6700k to 4.5ghz on 1.150v
Stable on aida64 and prime95
My cpu cooler is the cm hyper 212x

I tried to up my frequency to 4.8 ghz using 1.390v
I dont wanna go past 1.4v
My question is do i have a good cpu because i managed to oc it to 4.5 with only 1.150v?
If i get another cpu cooler maybe a nzxt x61
Will my cpu manage to get the 4.8 or maybe 4.9 ghz under 1.4v?

Thanks.
 
That's the silicon lottery for ya. That's how CPUs work, you might be able to pull crazy low vcore at a certain frequency, but that does not guarantee you can do the same for higher frequencies.

For example, I can pull 1.250v at 4.5ghz (4690K), but I can't even run 4.8ghz without going past 1.4v.
