Hello Guy's

I cant seem to find any info on this so can you help please?
My past 2 pc's I have built have had auto overclockers in the BIOS
so this time i thought i should do it myself, im not too sure if i can overclock on these specs but any help or info would be great!

spec:

i5 3570K
Arctic Cooling Freezer i30
Gigabyte ga-z77-ud5h
Kingston Hyper X 4GB 1600MHz x 2
OCZ 650w PSU

Thanks in advance for the help! smile.gif

Just bump the multiplier up to 4.4 and put the voltage up to around 1.3v. I would put voltage control on manual. Lower the voltage to a stable point where you can still run Prime95

Pshhh, you are totally mistaken...



I'm joking of course. Legonut is correct, and for the 3570k you should be able to get 4.2 easily, but going an higher depends on the cpu. Some 3570ks can get 4.4/4.5 right out the the box, others need better cooling than the stock cooler.

There are good guides, but maybe here some basics.

The goal is to achieve a certain clock speed by adjusting the multiplier and then finding the minimum CPU voltage (Vcore) it takes to run stable. Always make sure you don't go past the max safe voltage. Use the manual mode to find the right voltage, not the offset mode.

Compared to idle, the voltage drops when under load (Vdroop). There's something called load line calibration (LLC) to make up for that. You will want to find a setting for LLC that results in about equal voltage for idle and load.

Then there are some other settings that should be set manually, but since every board manufacturer names them differently, I can't really help with that. There are a lot of great topics around with good recommendations on OCN.
