Help a newbie out with 3570k overclocking

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
So I have the gigabyte UD3H motherboard, a 3570k and 4 gigs (1 stick) of corsair vengeance ram.



Now, using the bios I got my CPU to 4.2 ghz. However, In order to prevent it from BSODing, I had to change the memory timings to 9-10-9-27. I have no idea what these numbers mean, I just got them from somewhere online talking about corsair vengeance ideal timings. I also have the voltage at 1.25V.

The CPU is running cool and everything, even under full load (never going about 60 really), but I fail prime95 after a couple hours.


Im thinking it cant be the CPU because no 3570k overclocks that bad. Its just me not knowing what im doing. I think im messing something up by having my memory timings set the way they are.





So, im hoping to get to 4.4 ghz, but honestly if i can be prime95 stable at 4.2 id be content.

Can you guys please guide me?

default your BIOS to stock. I have the same board and CPU and RAM combo and you should be able to hit 4.2 by only changing the Turbo clocks to 42, 42, 42, 42 and rebooting.

4.4 will probably take a voltage change but if you can't get a multiplier OC to work you have to look for other issues.

Dual channel ram will help with everything else, but i dont know if it will restrict your OC.

There is a great Ivy Bridge OC guide that happens to be on Gigabyte boards in the OC forum.

Ok I am trying that now. Everything (including voltage and ram timings) is back to stock. I just bumped it up to 4.2 ghz. Running p95. Fingers crossed!

well its been running like 15 min now which is weird.

When I tried OCing it without changing any settings before it gave me a rounding error within a minute.

I dont see whats different this time around but il take it lol

What cooler are you running on the CPU and what temps are you getting? The stock cooler maybe overworked depending on your voltage. I didnt use the stock cooler on mine. And the the UD3 bios autos the voltage to around 1.25 at that speed.

here is the guide I started with. Although I couldnt get near his voltages on my 3770K.

Sounds like my rig. Personally if it hasn't crashed or given any errors yet I would pull up BF3 and give it a run. Or if you feel the need for speed go through the OC guides and push it up a bit to see what it can do.

Sin's Sandy Bridge guide is also useful. It describes the bios features a lot better than his Ivy Bridge guide.
