post #351 of 1411
Hi all, I just had my first PC build done not long ago, and I want overclock my CPU and GPU. I am absolutely new to overclocking, so i need your guys guidance.

mainly i want to OC the CPU to 4.5Ghz if i am able to, and i am not sure how much i can OC my GPU.

here is my build:

CPU- Intel Core i5-3570K
GPU- XFX Double D HD 7770 Black Ed. 1GB DDR5
Motherboard- ASUS P8Z77-M
RAM- Corsair High Perform Vengeance 8GB DDR3 1600Mhz2x4
Storage- Kingston HyperX 3K 120GB SATA 3 2.5
PSU- ULTRA X4 750W POWER SUPPLY MODULAR
Watercooling- Corsair Hydro H60 CPU Liquid Cooler
Case- Cooler Master Storm Scout ATX Mid-T Blk

By changing some of the other voltage settings, and upping the BCLK a little I managed to get a nice stable 5.0ghz. I think my Vcore was too high, and my other voltages were too low tbh.

Managed to keep my temps during gaming in mid 70s, so I'm happy.

So my opinion to anyone else who reads this thread, start with vcore, and if you want more speed play with some of the other voltages before you give up.

Thanks guys.

Which chip are you running i5 or i7? What are your voltages set at to get 5.0 in the mid 70s? I'm 4.7 at the mid 80s on a i7 3770k.

^ Impressive - I like it! My chip gets to that max temp of 75C at 1.112 volt...NO JOKE!

Are you using Fixed or Offest?

i wonder..if fixed will provide cooler temps than offset to achieve same OC for me....hmmmmm....

I am a bit dissapointed, have a MSI Z77a G45 Mobo and i5 3570k, i could only go until 4.4GHz with 1.3v Vcore with temperatures being 72-75C with a Hyper 212+ Evo.

I tried hard to reach 4.5GHz stable, but i had to until 1.35v and temperatures jumped to 85+ which i stopped even trying. Any ideas, what could be potential problem of not hitting 4.5GHz stable?

I read that my Mobo has only 6 Phase PWM, and not super overclocker. Or is just the chip itself?

3570k.

I'm doing 1.3v and it's mid 70s to low 80s during gaming. No blue screens , crashes or thermal throttling during gaming, but Prime95 cooks the chip to high 90s in just a minute or 2 of stressing, around 10 minutes in it bluescreens every time.

But I'm happy as long as I can game with it.

Be aware that it will crash whilst gaming at some point. I had prime stable, at about 70C 4.3Ghz, 1.1V. IBT stable, some whea errors being thrown in Bf3, lots being thrown in Total War, both Bf3 and TW would occasionally blue screen, I probably a good 12hrs of clear play on BF3 under my belt before the first one, TW didn't last for more than 1-2 hrs. Why not just back off the OC there's no need for 4.7 is there? one day that crash will come during a disk write, and it will corrupt your installation.
