Suggested overclock

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have a i5 3570k

I wanted to get into overclocking a bit, but I didn't want to go crazy on my electric bill at the same time

My aim was to be somewhere between 4.0 to 4.5ghz.

I recently ordered, and haven't yet recieved a hyper212 evo cooler.
I have a asrock z77 pro3 motherboard. At the moment, since I don't have a non stock cooler, I undervolted everything by a large margin. I but this in the motherboard section since I have no idea how far the pro3 can go with its limited voltage regulation.

I was wondering is 4ghz at 1v reasonable? How high do you guys think this will go?

I'm currently sitting at 3.4ghz at .922v with my idle bouncing between 0.78x to 0.802

If you have your voltage set to auto and have some power saving stuff on there, then you when you go to load your voltage will not stay at 0.922v. If it did at load then you would have an amazing chip. See what your voltage is at load then I can tell you.

There you go.

Currently set to a -0.185 offset undervolt in the bios, and it raises the voltage a tiny bit when turbo is being kicked in. The multiplier is 34, but turbo is making it average 36 in this test.

I haven't changed the cooler yet, still stock intel.

I'd really like to know at what clock speed does the voltage requirement start spiking on my board.

My voltage was not set to auto.

Ananatech got 0.9v static on 3.9ghz

I'd just base my values off reviews but I have a cheap motherboard so I don't know
