Request: Guide/Support to new overclock. (GA-Z77X-UD5H + i5-3570k)

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I upgraded from a EVGA 780i FTW + Q6600 running at 4ghz to the list below.
(Link are two actually purchased items off local computer company website)
i5 - 3570k LINK
GA-Z77X-UD4H LINK
Intel SSD 330 Series (120) LINK
Patriot Memory's Viper 3 Series | PC3-12800 DDR3 | 9-9-9-24 | 4x4gb LINK
Thermaltake 805W ToughPower LINK
2x8800GTS 512 (Upgrading soon, good enough for TF2)
Case Cosmos 1000 Cooler master LINK

Cooling System.
3x120mm Fans on triple Radiator | 1x120mm fan on Single Radiator | 1x120mm Fan on bottom of case.
Acrylic Danger Den Double Bay reservoir LINK (Just example, this is single bay)
DD12V-D5 Pump Fixed Speed LINK
RayStorm CPU WaterBlock LINK
Swiftech MCR120-QP-K LINK
Swiftech MCR320-QP-K LINK




Overclocking is very different on this from my old system and it appears I need a lot of help!
So far I've just loaded EasyTune6 and clicked on the "Quick Boost 3" and it has overclocked me to 4.40Ghz | BCLK 104MHZ.
I can't find any guides to overclock this thing with my setup so I would be grateful for some support.

I would like a 5Ghz or higher if possible. @ 4.40Ghz my temperature on HWMonitor were just under 60c (~58c) on (TMPIN1 and TMPIN2) But I have no idea what TMPIN0,1,2 are even indicating.

Idle currently.



Any suggestions on what steps I should do? Should I use EasyTune6? Or Bios setup?
Thanks in Advance

I would not use EasyTune. Auto overclocks tend to hit lower frequencies, sometimes on ridiculous voltages.
Enter your motherboard's BIOS, and find the frequency/voltage settings. Start by raising the CPU multiplier about 5x. Then, save your changes and restart. If your computer POSTs successfully (it should), continue to raise the multi in increments of between 5 and 10x, saving and restarting each time, until you get error messages. Then, go back, raise the cpu voltage a little bit, then continue raising the multi. I think that 5GHz would require 50x on the multiplier. When you finish, boot into Windows and run a stress test, such as Prime95 for at least an hour and a half. If you don't receive any error messages, you have a successful overclock. If you do get errors, go back into the BIOS and raise the voltage again. Make sure to keep the voltage under 1.45, under 1.4 if you can.
Hope this helps. Good luck.

Thanks for the reply. I'm having a hard time once I get past 4.8 ghz to boot.
All I've done is change the multiplier, it does boot at 4.8 ghz.

What I though I was suppose to do is look at the 4.8ghz boot voltage and then maybe put it up a bit from there....
IT seems that CPUZ is having some issues though because it doesn't appear to be reporting things correctly. At times it says I'm at 1600MHZ instead of 4800. Any Thoughts?

@ 4.8ghz CPU-Z reports the voltage wavering between 1.01V - 1.236V constantly.
If I try to increase to 5GHZ what voltage would you suggest I try first, so far I have not been able to get it to boot.

Also anything else I should disable or increase in the bios at the same time?

What voltage did you set in the BIOS? It is difficult to give an exact voltage because I have not overclocked a 3570K before.

Automatically clocks down to 1600MHz when idle to save power, if you want to stop this then disable Speedstep and C1E in BIOS.

BiG_LiG: Thank you. Should I be disabling this option if I want to run an Overclock on this board?

@ 4.8 Ghz I've tried 1.20, 1.25, 1.30. 1.35, 1.4
and have had zero stability.

Again I have not changed any other options other then the CPU voltage so perhaps I need to address that?


I'm going to use this computer primarily for gaming, so should I just leave it at 4.4GHZ or would I get a bit of benefit from 5ghz?

You should disable the power saving states if using fixed voltage, but enable them if you are using offset voltage.

Spread spectrum should be disabled
LLC should be set to ultra high or whatever the highest setting is. (these are the terms used for Asus, I don't know the Gigabyte terminology and it may be different).

Go for 4.4 - 4.5GHz, I read you don't see much performance gain going to 4.8GHz, but we mostly just want to see what are chips can do. I have mine set back to 4.5Ghz now.

el gappo: HAHA I was hoping you wouldn't notice that. I wrote the question then looked at the version smile.gif It was just a version I had on an external hard drive that I plugged in.... thumb.gif


Yeah I think I might just stick to like 4.6 or 4.7 ghz then since it seems to work well. I'll give a good 24 hour run on Prime95 and then call it quits. I havn't really seen anyone with specs on 5ghz with this chip anyways.
