First Time Overclocker - Need Some Advice

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I've never overclocked a CPU before and was wondering if I could get some advice. I have an Intel Core i5 760 (2.8GHz) on an Intel DP55SB motherboard and would like a relatively mild OC to 3.6GHz. Can this be accomplished using the stock Intel fan/heatsink? I've already tried it once but 3DMark 11 crashed. Maybe I'm doing something wrong with the voltage tweaking? I tried using the Intel BIOS and Intel Desktop Control Center if anyone is familar with those. Thanks.

Intel DP55SB
8GB (4x2GB) Corsair XMS 3
Geforce 570 (overclocked to 810 core/4000 memory)
Antec TruePower 750W

Get yourself a good cooler, something like a hyper 212 or maybe higher end air cooler.

Don't use any software based overclocking, learn your way around the bios and just play around with the frequency settings. Don't touch anything you don't understand and you can't go wrong. Best of luck.

Try setting 171MHz BCLK, vCore 1.25v, VTT 1.35v and memory multipliers so it stays under rated speed.
