I'm very new to OC

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
hey there people i have a system that i would like to over clock but im so new to it im looking for any help i can get before i go into my bios and just start changing stuff around

i have a ASUS Sabertooth X79 motherboard and a Intel Core i7-3820 Sandy Bridge-E at 3.6GHz im aiming to get 5GHz but anything over 4 is more then welcome if anyone can help or point me in the right direction that would be great

If I'm correct, the 3820 is a partially unlocked processor which means that you can Overclock it a bit with the limited multiplier available, but the rest of the way, you gotta use the BCLK to take it up any higher. I can't go into much detail as I haven't used this processor.

However, what you would be playing around in the bios is the Vcore, multiplier and in this case, the BCLK or bus speed.

I don't think you'll be getting 5ghz. Most people can't get 5ghz with any CPU (not to say there aren't a few on this thread)

i saw someone on youtube said he was running my same cpu at 5ghz hes motherboard was different so i didn't want to follow his settings also after reading the beginners guide to overclocking here i don't think i want to go that high i think ill just go as high as 4.6

Even though it's true that every chip has it's own overclocking potential and 5Ghz is quite a no. to hit, but it's not impossible. The only way you'll know is if you start trying from now and slowly you'll get the hang of it.

If you could take a screenshot of your bios OC'ing settings then that would be quite a lot more helpful than just making you read some overclocking guide. I knew it wasn't that easy when I started doing it the first time, but it only took me a day for general overclocking.
