Help me overclock - Z77 D3H + 3570K

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Hey guys!

I just bought a Corsair H60 on clearance and decided to overclock. I was able to get to 3.9Ghz stable on the stock cooler, so I decided to push it a little further with the new cooler. It's set up as a push pull to pull from the outside of the case. I'm using 2 stock Corsair fans. One from my case and one from the H60, which both happen to be the same. I'm at 4.3Ghz right now with decent temps. Doesn't go above 65C. At 4.4Ghz I get pretty close to 80C after about 30-40mins of Prime95. What can I do to bring my temps down? I was at 1.177v (I think) at 4.3Ghz and I'm at 1.308v at 4.4Ghz.

Any ideas?

And sorry if this is the wrong spot to post. I don't post on here much. If it's the wrong place, feel free to move it.

Thanks.

are you using auto voltage or are you setting those vallues for Vcore in yourself? if you entered them then that chip is horrible to need 1.3 for 4.4

I'm using auto voltage for the 4.4Ghz. I set it to 1.177 on 4.3Ghz. I kept blue screening when I started Prime95 and I couldn't figure out the right voltage so I put it back to auto for 4.4Ghz. Also I believe i set PLL to 1.650.

set vcore to fixed/manual and set it for 1.25 vcore and for pll set it to 1.8 thumb.gif

Thank you. I'm gonna try that now. Can you explain what exactly PLL is? Google was no help.

thats a good question of what PLL is. but it's under your Vcore area in bios thumb.gif

Whatever it is, you don't need to mess with it for that kind of overclock. Just leave it on Auto.

lol I know where it is. I just wanted to know what its for. I heard if you offset it a little it can help bring temps down. Anyways, I set my Vcore at 1.23 and changed the multiplier to 45. So far its stable at 4.5Ghz and my temps are lower than they were at 4.4Ghz. Thank you.

You can usually lower it a little (along with VCCSA) without affecting stability and reduce temps a couple of degrees, that's true.
