You know what the sucky part is? After I learned how to overclock manually through the BIOS, I found out that my ambient temperature is too high, my case lacks airflow, and my cooler is hardly good enough to run a good 24/7 overclock.[/quote]
ur case is good , just control the fans with the fan xpert 2 make them turbo for now, also on the ambient how much is ur room temp ?
I used to be in UAE it is a desert and I have 25 c' to 30c' ambient and my overclock with h100 4.6ghz at 77c' that is with cpu level up i did reach less manually around 73c'
coz cpu level up don't give u best option thats why i was like use it then try to drop down from that temp by decreasing the volts
Thats NOT good advice. Learn how to overclock first. Then you can see how bad of a job the 'level up' feature does if you want
EDIT: Why not learn how to drive a car by taking it up to top speed on the first run?
that is not how cpu level up works, and it will give him 4.2 Ghz he can start from there coz he Want to at least know how much his chip can do with how much voltage's cpu level up will give him idea about that and then he can increase the overclock to be same but with less voltages that way he can try to get 4.2 ghz with minimum heat output as his chipset can acheive , if he cant reach 4.2 with cpu level up then there is somthing wrong with his cooler hyper 212 should easily reach 4.2 with 3770k
