I5-4690 to I5-4670K OC'd performance increase?
United States whatisthisidonteven 
Thinking about swapping out my 4690 for a 4670K and overclocking it. Seems like 4.5Ghz is the most likely obtainable OC frequency. How much of a FPS performance increase would I see from stock 4690 (@3.5GHz) to a 4670K @ 4.5GHz? I have a R9 380 and 8 Gb RAM. Right now I'm getting around 240-300 FPS with everything on low and at 1024x760 stretched but it drops down below 200 a lot. I have a 240Hz monitor and, given that CS:GO is CPU intensive, I am hoping that going with an OC'd 4670K would get me closer to constant 240 FPS.

I have a 4690k @ 4.7 ghz with a 1060 6 gb I get 299 fps with fps_max 300 on. it dips a little but i rarely see it go below 250 fps

RESO? AA? QUALITIES? stating fps in a game without giving the variables that determine the fps is worthless.

Are you ok bud? Literally the answer is in the original question... He said "Right now I'm getting around 240-300 FPS with everything on low and at 1024x760 stretched" I stated the variables that differ from what he's asking being a different CPU and GPU than what he would be setup with.

you stated your personal performances, without confirming any of the variables. vegan french kiddo confirmed.

I literally posted my personal performances stating the only variants in the original question. It must really hurt your feelings that I didn't answer the question to your liking to bring out the fact that i'm french. It's ok, life must be hard at home for you to take out your frustrations on a random stranger for no reason other that your sheer amusement. What ever you find to pass time to prevent yourself from committing suicide is ok. Keep up the hard work keyboard warrior <3

"I have a 4690k @ 4.7 ghz with a 1060 6 gb I get 299 fps with fps_max 300 on. it dips a little but i rarely see it go below 250 fp" does not state your resolution, your ingame settings for quality, AA, hertz of your monitor etc, things that are all important when determining the actual performance. 300 fps means fucking nothing, you could be playing on all low, 640x480 60hz. literally brain dead kiddo. No wonder you're 4 generations behind and bottlenecking that average at best 1060 with ddr3 ram and a slow processor from 2014.

an OC'd i5 4690K is slow for gaming??? In what world do you live? I lol'd hard, even an i7 920 from 2010 is still enough for modern triple-A titles... (not CS GO, since that thing is a CPU-intensive inoptimized mess using a 15 year old engine...) ALSO, DDR3 1866+ RAM with decent timings doesn't bottleneck anything, not even the top-of-the-line Broadwell 5775C CPU, which is the best CPU for gaming excluding the 8700K/8086K thanks to its L4 cache.

to play them in high quality? on 1080p 1440p or more? on 144+hz? the answer to all 3 is no lmao. The fact its obvious you havent read anything on the subject is very obvious. To top it off, you assumed that thew bottleneck only pertained to gaming performance proving both that you missed the OP's post and assuming GPU's are meant for gaming only ?! LMAO

"to play them in high quality? on 1080p 1440p or more? on 144+hz? the answer to all 3 is no lmao." What the fuck? Are you retarded? By playing in higher quality with a great GPU for the game you're playing you actually relieve the CPU bottleneck. There's a reason why most reasonable people recommend Ryzen 7s instead of CFL i7s for 4K nowadays, because the bottleneck in 4K is mostly on the GPU, on high quality settings even the GTX 1080 Ti sometimes struggles to maintain 75 FPS in many games on high/very high quality settings, and the CPU is free of any noticable load, ofc if you're not running a Pentium 4 lmao... "only pertained to gaming performance proving both that you missed the OP's post and assuming GPU's are meant for gaming only ?! LMAO" Not gonna respond to that. GPUs can be used for mining and compute too....

ur 4690k at what voltage
2018-08-18 02:41
nice, thanks for the data point. the 4690k is also another option. i can get one, but it's about $30 USD more than what I can get the 4670k.
2018-08-17 18:39
i have 4670K with 1060 6 gb 8gb 1600 mhz trust me its unplayable sometimes
2018-08-17 18:40
In what way is it unplayable?
2018-08-17 18:44
i5 4670k here with gtx 970, 8gb of ram, no clue wtf is he talking about
2018-08-17 18:46
what kind of FPS are you getting, and what stable OC frequency are you able to achieve?
2018-08-17 18:48
I'm playing at 1280x960, around 250-300 fps as far I can remember. Only OC'ed to 4.2 ghz, didn't go further than that because I had some trouble (not related to CPU doe)
2018-08-17 18:49
dude i get some massive fps drops. never been close to locked 300 fps, in some maps like dust2 or cache i drop below 200
2018-08-17 18:51
Sounds like flushing money down a drain for a miniscule performance gain.
2018-08-17 18:45
How so? I can actually make some money by going to a 4670k after selling my 4690, and going to a 4690k would be maybe $10-$20 out of pocket.
2018-08-17 18:47
okay, then why not?
2018-08-17 18:58
why would u buy a 240 hz monitor when u have a shit pc
2018-08-17 18:49
because i got it for the same price or cheaper than most 144Hz monitors. whats with the toxic comment?
2018-08-17 18:51
how am i supposed to know for how much money u got your monitor im just saying they are expensive if u buy them at their full price and u won't get a huge difference in fps between these two cpus just get some money and buy something good
2018-08-17 18:52
you are awfully defensive for someone who came into this thread to attack me
2018-08-17 18:54
u made a thread because u want help or attention? have fun with 150 fps and a 240hz monitor
2018-08-17 18:55
i never drop to 150 fps with the current setup, but thank you for your input
2018-08-17 18:56
that is a great upgrade imo if you manage to get 4.5ghz at a decent enough voltage you should see a good improvement it should not be dropping below 250 I think, keep in mind that some maps are just extremely poorly made like cache and inferno (even the new dust2 is pretty bad in terms of performance) these older gen haswells are still a perfectly viable option, all the new gens are mostly just money-grabs by intel without any significant improvement imo
2018-08-17 18:51
yeah the real bummer about having a haswell is the LGA1150 socket, so that pretty much precludes me from any other intel architecture. hence the reason why i'm trying to squeeze more performance out of the 4th gen
2018-08-17 18:53
why you just dont buy a new gen cpu + cheaper monitor? you can find 144 hz for 150-200$, even less
2018-08-17 18:57
are you suggesting selling my current monitor? i got my 240Hz monitor for $250
2018-08-17 18:58
oh shit didnt read the whole thread soz
2018-08-17 19:00
no worries man
2018-08-17 19:00
not really. rather wait and save some money for a better upgrade. I have the 4670k, got it at 4.4ghz with air cooling, still get drops below 200 sometimes, especially on new maps like dust2. on faceit with AC i got fucking issues even on inferno, terrible performance. once I had stable 300 with the same setup! save the money or if you cannot wait: the i5 8400 anyday for a budget csgo gaming pc. but right now is a bad time to buy a new cpu anyway. imagine that sweet boxes under the christmas tree in a few months...gonna be gud ;)
2018-08-17 19:21
Oh men me have the same pc, i never oc the procesor Get clean your hardware and you got 300 solid fps and get a good heat dissiper
2018-08-18 02:35
maybe couple of fps lol, cs go so shit game i have 4690k @ 4,4ghz and i see no major perfomance change before and after oc
2018-08-18 02:41
fuck dude that is terrible news
2018-08-18 04:54

Depends if you hit the silicone lottery, some chips can easily hit higher than 4.5ghz even up to 5ghz while others can barely even hit 4.1ghz to 4.4ghz. Unlucky for me, mines can only get up to 4.3ghz.
2018-08-18 02:48
A brief update to this thread: I ended up getting a 4690k (and selling my 4690 for about $10 less). Haven't had much time to play around with it. I only had a few minutes to test it out this morning at 4.3 Ghz and don't really drop below 250 FPS anymore. I'll probably see if I can push it a little more, but pretty happy with the $10 investment.
2018-08-27 18:59
Another update: Had some time to mess around with it a little more after work, and I'm up to 4.5 GHz stable.
2018-08-28 04:32
Depends on your setup honestly. I have a 4790k (with a GTX 1080 for reference) which with everything closed and on one screen I easily get over 300 FPS no issues. Though with multiple 144hz monitors and I tend to like watching videos on one of my screens (or maybe even a 1080p twitch stream) while DMing, I can dip as low as 130 FPS. So really depends on what you enjoy doing. Myself I plan on upgrading to a 8700k, not necessarily for necessity but for comfort, especially if I decide to stream for my circle of friends and would like consistent FPS. One option you could go for is for a K version but splash out for a really good cooler, should be able to keep you happy for a while.
