I've tried looking everywhere but still need help

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi Guys,

I have a GigaByte GA-Z68A-D3-B3 Intel Z68 Chipset DDR3 ATX Mainboard and an intel 2500k. I have liquid cooling and 750 watts power. I cannot find a guide that gives me a successful overclock, and most of them don't match my motherboard. I've been inside BIOS and all I know is to set the core multiplier to 45x. Any help or guides on how to overclock would be great.

I would read this thread...

Everything might not match up, as far as terminology, every BIOS is different. I read that thread and was able to get my OC going fine. See sig rig.

dont go for 4.5ghz straight away.... try something easier like 4ghz, and just bump the vcore to 1.3volts that should be plenty, everything else should be set to defaults volts and make sure you set your ram voltage right ... then make sure you're stable before you go any further,

you cant just dump in at the deep end unless youve had some experience
