2600K & Gigabyte Z68XP-UD3 Help!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I've been reading the guides and watching videos on how to overclock the 2600k CPU, but they all seem to be written as general guides and I'm looking for a precise, step-by-step solution.

My goal is simple: overclock my 2600k from 3.4Ghz to 4.5Ghz. I have a Gigabyte GA-Z68XP-UD3 board. Can someone please tell me specifically what I need to do?

I know I need to increase the multiplier to 45, but what about VCore? Are there other settings I need to change?

Please help. I'm sure this is easy for many of you, but I'm new to overclocking.

What I'm looking for is a step-by-step instruction on how to achieve a 4.5Ghz overclock through the BIOS. I have the BIOS set to Optimized Defaults currently. Someone please tell me what to do - I know this is easy for you all.

Watching the video probably provided you better step by step guide than just reading. However, the voltage is varies among chip to chip so don't assume if the video use 1.35V Vcore to reach 4.5ghz you can do the same with your chip. Overclocking is mostly experimenting on the user part. So be patience and trial and error with the voltages, mainly is the vCore you have to focus on.

See post #1

It has a *lot* of useful information/links to common issues, fixes, tips etc. If you're willing to read a little then you'll most certainly benefit from the information.

I helped someone else out, there are bios pictures (above my post) and pretty complete instructions there.
