Overclocking i5 3570K using Asus P8Z77-V LX

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hey Guys,

I'm trying to figure out how to overclock my 3570K using a Asus P8Z77-V LX Motherboard, but the settings are different in my motherboard than the guide im trying to use which is for the P8Z77-V LK.

The missing option is DIGI+ Power Management, when i have DIGI+ VRAM.

Has anyone overclocked using the Motherboard and is willing to share?

Thanks in Advance! thumb.gif

All good, I figured it out. thumb.gif Managed 4.2Ghz at 69C and 1.25v. Could probably get more from those voltages but only had a short time to play.

I'll post up some sort of guide for this motherboard later, 1am here so time for sleep.

Im running the same setup... Wouldn't mind seeing a screen shot of your settings...
New to OC'ing and just want to get my feet wet wink.gif

I have an i5 3570k, and it's stable at 4.2ghz (when my room isn't too hot) at 1.16v

OK, I've taken some screenshots for you. I'll give you a quick run through.

Please take this as is, and im not responsible for any damage caused by this short guide. Overclock at your own risk.

I would also recommend doing a stress test on your CPU and seeing where you stand before beginning an overclock. For example, if your CPU is getting to 75C without an overclock then there are issues with your cooling and need to be fixed before overclocking. I would start at 4.2Ghz and work your way up from there. Stress test your CPU and see what temps your getting.

Moving on.

First step, go into the BIOS and Advanced Mode. Go to Advance and CPU Configuration, Disable Intel Adaptive Thermal Monitor.



Second step, Go into Advanced then CPU Power Management Configuration down the bottom. Once in there i disabled everything except for Turbo Mode and Package C State Support. Leave the CPU Ratio as is for now.





Third Step, Go into AI Tweaker, then DIGI+ VRM. Once in there, Set CPU Load-Line Calibration to "High" CPU Power Phase Control to "Extreme" and CPU Current Capability to "120%". Everything else remains the same.





Fourth Step, Change the CPU Voltage to Manual Mode and input the voltage you want. I'm using 1.250V and it's stable at the moment at 4.3GHz.


Fifth and Final Step. Go to Advanced\CPU Configuration\CPU Power Management Configuration and change the CPU Ratio to whatever you want. Basically X this number by 100 to get the MHz that you want so 43 x 100 = 4300Mhz or 4.3Ghz.


As i said earlier, Overclock at your own risk. But keep in mind, I'm air cooled so you should be OK if your under water.

If your PC Fails to boot to windows, you might have to wind down the frequency.

Use a Benching program to stress test your CPU Before and After the Overclock. 80C is getting a bit warm, if your hitting 90C you'll need to back off.

Good Luck thumb.gif , and if it was helpful, Rep me biggrin.gif

Try lowering pll for better temps. It should be fine at 1.71v, but many can run much lower than that. I'm at 1.627v pll and it's rock-solid at 4.5GHz.

Thanks for the screen shots and at my own risk goes without saying...
Thanks..

Do you mind linking to that guide? I've got an LK myself.

would it be safe for me to do this if mine has a i7 instead?
