Overclocking cautiously - Have some questions.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello All,

Just as a background, I am new to the overclocking arena so I am also wary when it comes to modifying my hardware for obvious reasons. Here are my specs of the PC i recently put together.

GIGABYTE GA-Z77X-UD5H LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Intel Core i7-3770K Ivy Bridge 3.5GHz (3.9GHz Turbo) LGA 1155 77W Quad-Core Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 4000 BX80637I73770K

CORSAIR CWCH60 Hydro Series H60 High Performance Liquid CPU Cooler

Currently using standard speed pc3 ddr3 -14gb but will be replacing with 4 X GB - 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2400 (PC3 19200) Desktop Memory Model F3-2400C10D-8GTD Today hopefully.


I installed everything but memory on Tuesday and everything started up and is running like a champ. Like most people who order the k model processors I was very interested in OCing and getting the most out of this. I heard of heat issues with the 3rd gen processors so i decided to get an h60 corsair liquid cooler. I wish I had done more research before impulse buying that but I have an extra fan hooked up to the radiator for push pull system.

Through the bios ( this is where I have the major questions) through the pre research on OCing using this board I saw to increase the cpu frequency. By default it was 35. I move it up cautiously and stopped around 43 or 4.3. Did some stress testing and it maxed out around 50 deg Celsius. Durring this I noticed my memory getting very hot so I decided to order some memory, which i should get today.

There is something called "turbo" on the board that I am unsure if this affects but my next question is regarding the voltage applied. Does increasing my ratio with turbo on also increase my voltage or should I manually increase this or please offer any tips on the best process to OC this board safely and effectively.

Also: Is there is there anything i should be aware of or manually set to get my computer to run and recognize the new speed of the memory or should XMP take care of this generally?

Thanks for your time and help.
