Max OC on a i5 750 using stock voltages?

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Hello all. Soon enough, I plan to finally dive into overclocking.. slowly but surely of course.

I'm just trying to get an idea of what i can using stock voltages, my 1333mhz memory and still have decent temps at the same time.

I'll be using this as a cooler,

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835186134


The ARCTIC COOLING Freezer 7 Pro Rev.2 92mm Fluid Dynamic CPU Cooler.

I'm aware its kind of on the small side, but I'm kind of strapped for cash at the moment.

Also, does anyone have a templates of overclocks i could use for reference? I know all chips are different, but it would give me something to start off from.

Thanks in advance! Your help is greatly appreciated!

Hmmm i'd say maybe 3.0~3.2Ghz? But watch your temps VERRYYY carefully.

3.0-3.2GHz sounds pretty good to me, thanks for your input man!

Anyone else have any estimations/ideas?

Well... I went to 3.6GHz on my e7400 on the stock cooler, without reaching the 70º mark while blending on prime95... But that was a temporary situation and it's a different chip

I thought you can have a hyper 212 + cooler for maybe 4 or 5 bucks more. I would check it out.
I reached 3.4 Ghz with just one notch increase in volts. 3.6 Ghz can be had for less than 1.2V (mileage may vary). With the hyper 212 + cooler, you can reach 3.6 Ghz in a breeze. From 3.6 Ghz to 3.8 Ghz was another story and yet another from 3.8 to 4.0. But just to get 3.6 Ghz is easy as breeze and that is just about right. I know it does not bottleneck my crossfire 6950s overclocked.
I would check out www.directron.com They seem to have pretty good price on coolers - I nabbed a Silver arrow one time for about $68 shipped.
General guidelines:
1) Make sure all power saving options are disabled (Speed spectrum, C1E state, etc)
2) Make sure RAM is at its lowest multiplier (or middle)
3) Make sure RAM timing and voltage are set at manufacture suggested.
4) Overclock away!

if your not going to mess around with the voltages then i would say around 3ghz, maybe 3.2-3.3.
remember to set your dram voltages to what ever it say on your ram.

if your willing to fiddle with your voltages, i would say clock it to around 3.0, and then start bringing the voltages down, for the least amount of heat at that speed.

(dont just leave the voltages on auto tho, set them manually, i find it works better, but thats just me)

i wanted the best out of my 750, so i changed voltages as i saw fit. (got it up to around 3.4GHz on a 212+)
but your going to want to do alot of research to see how everything comes together. (voltage wise)

trial and error is the only real advice i can give you, dont try something dumb, and youll probably end up with a nice clock.
btw max safe voltage for the 750 is 1.40V
make sure to stress test it (i like intel burn test)
if youv raised you bclck, and wanna make your ram faster, then tighten the timings a bit too. your can probably bring it down a couple notches.

now, im certainly n00b when it comes to over clocking (compared to most people)
for the most part, but this is what i did, and it worked out for me pretty well.
if you want a step by step as to how i did my overclocking, feel free to pm me.

thank you everyone for your help +rep to all

Question though, would my 1333mhz limit my overclock? Also how to timings tie into how overclocking works?

Kind of a noob here

My i5 760 is running at 3.55 at stock vcore (1.136). 160(.7 - because Asus is weird) x 22.
Why upgrade?
