What will it take to get my 3570k from 4.2 to 4.4 ghz?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
It appears I have hit a wall. However, i don't think its my hardware, but mostly the fact that I have no idea what I'm doing.


I have a

Gigabyte UD3h
3570k (currently stable at 4.2 ghz, stock voltage, temps are 25ish idle and 50-55ish load)
4 gigs Corsair Vengeance ram
Corsair 500 Watt PSU



I really wanna get a 1ghz overclock out of this chip. The problem is, if i just bump it up to 4.4 without a voltage increase, I cant even boot to windows. And even if i bump it up to 1.2 it wont boot. I really dont wanna push the voltage high at all.


Is it really just a matter of going into the 1.25-1.3 range? Or will i have to mess with my ram timings/voltage?


I am a complete noob at this

pretty much, that's within normal range. Mine at 4.3ghz, needed 1.28v. Alot of people usually have to go up to those ranges with that chip, depends on your chip but from the majority of what ive seen, they had to get the voltage up there for stability. And no it wont mess up your ram timings. And it's normal for you to have to increase voltage by a big amount after a certain threshold is reached, even for 100mhz, you may find have to increase the voltage in bigger increments.

1.2v-1.25v is not uncommon for 4.4ghz don't worry about voltage until 1.35v and just stay under 85c and you will be golden

If you are a noob, and there is nothing wrong with that, then you probably have your bios setup incorrectly.

It will take time, but it is time very well spent. Read through the first post of the following thread then post questions that you have in it:
http://www.overclock.net/t/1247413/ivy-bridge-overclocking-guide-with-ln2-guide-at-the-end

It is an oc guide using a Gigabyte mobo. Welcome to ocn by the way, here is how to get your rig in your posts:
http://www.overclock.net/t/1258253/how-to-put-your-rig-in-your-sig

As junkerde posted, vCore won’t change ram, those timings and voltages are set separately. Until you know you have your bios set correctly you will not be able to know what is the minimum vCore to get a give multiplier stable. Some chips can do 4.5 at below 1.15v and others need over 1.35v, that is just the luck of the silicon lottery.

When I first installed my 3570k it just put the multiplier up to 45 and didnt touch the vcore and it was all set to go! So you are very close to what you desire.

Thanks guys, and also thanks for the warm welcome.



Hmmm il have to think about raising the vcore.


Do you guys think there will be a noticeable fps performance increase in games like Arma 3 and Planetside 2 from 4.2 to 4.4 ghz?




Also maybe i phrased my original post wrong. I didnt think that raising my vcore will mess my timings up. I should have asked, "Should I worry about changing my ram timings or ram voltage or just leave it at default?"

Always do one thing at a time first get a stable cpu overclock than tweak timingsand dram voltage

Your cpu is not going to make a lot of difference in games unless it is bottlenecking your gpu, which is not the case for your rig. 4.2 or 4.4 is not going to make a noticeable difference in much. Ocing your ram is good for benchmarks, and for people who like doing it, but with modern ddr3 1600 ram it is usually not bottlenecking anything like games or normal use. As already posted, you need to oc only one thing at a time, and make sure each is stable before doing another.

If you want better game performance then save up for a new video card and oc that.

Does your motherboard have an offset voltage setting?
