Should have bought a K version bud.

So I shouldn't overclock to 4.3?

If it is unsafe to do it then why does the bios and motherboard software allow me to? I'm a bit confused.

I don't know what your BIOS is doing, but nobody here is going to recommend using BIOS auto-overclocking.

You asked a forum of overclockers for advice, got the same answer from all of them, and you're still debating?

Return your CPU and get the K. Trust us.

This thread gave me the belief that it was possible. And I might just not bother with overclocking if it isn't. I'll keep researching until I find a possible way to overclock to at least 4.2GHz and keep it stable.

You can OC a little bit - but I can't help you.

Check out this post from another forum for some info.

Done properly and with decent cooling, it's not going to mess anything up. And this isn't an "auto OC" like somebody else said so disregard those comments.



This may also help, from AnandTech's forums.

If this is the case then on an i7 3770 non K, you will be able to run at 4.3ghz by multi adjustment.

Ok! Thanks GanjaGreek, at least I know it's possible now. thumb.gif

I also tried to run it at 4.2GHz and test it with Prime95 but my CPU shortly reached almost 100 celcius. Is this just a matter of upgrading the cooler?

You can't OC a 3770 on a stock cooler, they get way too hot for that. Don't let it get to 100C smile.gif

Pick up a cheap cooler like a hyper 212 evo if you're on a budget. Don't go nuts on cooling because you're not going to get a crazy OC using that No K OC feature anyway...

Just the cooler I was looking to get! Thanks for the suggestion.

What should I do with the voltage? Should I leave that on auto? And is there any other BIOS settings I should be configuring?
