Overclocking my new system...

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Not sure if this is the right place for this, so let me know or move me to the correct place if needed...

I'm in the process of switching from the MSI z77a-g41 to the ASRock z77 Extreme 4 (for obvious overclocking reasons).

Here are my specs:

-i7 3770K
-Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO (//www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103099)
-G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (http://www.newegg.co...N82E16820231455)
-Kingston Hyper X 120GB SSD (for OS and virus protection) (http://www.newegg.co...N82E16820239049)
-Crucial M4 512GB SSD for games and Photoshop, etc... (http://www.newegg.co...N82E16820148527)
-Seagate 2T for everything else (photos, video, music)
-Zotac GTX 680, 4GB (Amp edition) (http://www.todaystec...mp-4gb-gtx-680/)
-Either onboard sound or Zonar DX (http://www.newegg.co...06&Tpk=xonar dx)

Looking for the best overclocking solution for CPU and Ram as well as any other tips/tricks for the rest of my hardware on the new ASRock board

Thanks in advance...

I use the ASrock Extreme4 and love its OC ability, Very easy and straight forward I have my 3770k @ 4.6ghz 1.2 volts with no issues any time I could not boot the clear cmos button on the back made it all right love it. ASrock designed one hell of a board. Sorry not so much a tip only thing I can say is don't use presets there alright but pushes more volts then you need to be stable well in my case it did.
