Advise needed. 2600k, P67 Asus Sabertooth

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone,

I'm sorry if I just walz in here with some questions like that, I know you guys don't appreciate it. But I really do not wish to research any further, my time is very limited.

Here's my specs:
2600k
Asus p67 Sabertooth (latest BIOS)
Corsair 1600mhz (forgot the exact model, will check later)
GTX580
1050W PSU

I wish to overclock my 2600k and generally understand overclocking a little bit more. Please do not link me to any guides or FAQs, chances are I read them already.
I did a little bit of research and changed the CPU Ratio to 40. I ran prime95 for about 30min which seemed fine, in CPU-Z it showed the core clock went up to 4000mhz. All seems fine. Temps under load are very good too.
I wish to take it further, about 4.5Ghz is my goal. I understand I need to adjust the voltage for that. I've never done that and am terrified of it because of the stories I've heard. Can someone please explain why and how I would approach increasing the voltage. Or better yet, how do I know I need to increase it and by how much, what would I look for to get an answer to that?

I see there are some Auto-OC options in my BIOS, I generally do not trust them and would like to do it manually, but I'm open for suggestions on those.
I have little to no knowledge when it comes to RAM. I selected the XMP profile to get to 1600mhz. Last year I tried doing it manually once by increasing the voltage and setting the timings to what it said on the label. The PC did not boot anymore after that and I had to reset the BIOS to get it to work again. Weird?
Some info on it would be appreciated.

All in all I'd like a short and quick set of instructions, it doesn't have to be a step by step guide, I just really have no time and hate to read 20 page guides and such. I learn better this way.

Furthermore, I also OC'ed my GPU, currently its running at 820/1640 - 2022. The temps are great and it appears to be stable, ran a few benchmarks and played about 7 hours of Skyrim with it. I guess I'd also have to adjust the voltage to take it further, just some advise on this would be helpful too.

Alright, thanks for reading through all this, I hope you don't mind me just asking like that, I know its a bit lazy.

There is no cheat-sheet for OC'ing.

It's all trial, error and research.

But, we'll wait and see the other, more knowledgeable people to chime in. Still think they'll say the same thing and link you to one of the many wonderfully informative guides here.
