Intel Core i7 Overclocking Q&A

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello, im new to overclocking, but ive done my best. So far ive overclocked my 3770k to 4.5Ghz with a Coolermaster Hyper 212 EVO. Ive run a stress test (Blend) for 8 hours with no errors. All ive done is increase the multiplier and increase the voltage to 1.205v. im just wondering if that voltage seems right for the overclock.

Here are my temps at full load:



Thanks.

Now you need to keep decreasing the voltage until unstable, and keep the lowest voltage that was stable. This will reduce temps on your cpu and electrical use.
