Help With 3570K Overclocking on ASRock Z77 Extreme4

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi, I plan on overclocking my 3570K on the ASRock Z77 Extreme4 right out of the box after I get them. How fast could I go with the cooling options and power supply that I have selected? I apologize if any of the things I say sound strange - I'm new to overclocking and computer building in general.

It really depends on the CPU itself. Some people need higher VCORE to achieve certain Mhz. I myself am running 4.4 Ghz / 1.2V and after 10+ hours of small FFT prime 95 stress test the highest my temp hit was 76C. Im also on air, Zalman X11 Performa. You should remember to check your windows event viewer to see if you are getting any WHEA errors then after youve OCed you CPU. I got them when i used 1.18V or 1.19V for 4.4 Ghz and i managed to pass 10 hours prime 95 test at these voltage too. Just something to look out for besides passing stress tests.

I have the same board and processor, I was able to get 4.7 stable on a slightly less productive air cooler with a max temp of 84. Your mileage may vary. Its was a really easy board to OC with for my first overclock. There is a great thread here: http://www.overclock.net/t/1198504/complete-overclocking-guide-sandy-bridge-ivy-bridge-asrock-edition Just be careful using the load line calibration on our board because it can send massive amounts of unreported voltage to the CPU. Stick with LLC 4 for mostly accurate voltage reporting.

Just a little context, the asrock extreme4 should be using D-PAK mosfets which would result in you possibly using exactly as this guy says, higher VCORE than other people due to possible higher temps on the mosfets.

However, on that board you should be able to get a respectable overclock. Just giving you a little info.
