Help overclocking an Intel core i5 2300k processor

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, first time here, recomended by a friend.
I'm getting fairly poor performence out of my CPU when I record or stream, so I want to look at over clocking. I have no idea how to overclock or anything like that, in fact I'm new to overclocking. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Here is my build as shown by speccy

You can do a multi increase up to 4 bins on a locked chip on a Z77, Z68, P67 motherboard, otherwise you're out of luck

hey there welcome to ocn! you came to the right place. make sure you check out the new members forum so you know the rules and what not.

anyway, your processor is not an unlocked processor and will not be able to overclock on it frown.gif your best bet would probably be to turn on turbo core which would bring you up to 3.1ghz.

You have an H67 board and a locked chip. I am pretty sure you are SOL for overclocking... I would sell it and get a Z68/Z77 and a 2500K and a cooler. intel's stock cooler is crap. Or you can swap out to a Xeon E1230

you would need to go into your bios and turn it on. it is different on every board, but with your board, you will want to go into advanced mode at the top right corner, and then go to the advanced tab. from there you will see a list and there should be turbo mode. if it is disabled, enable it. if it is already enabled, then you are set.
