iNoob, need OC Hlep!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello,

I searched many a forum for some hlep, but alas it was not specific to my needs entirely, so I thought I would just ask by starting a thread on my specific rig.

I has:

Intel i7 3770k Ivy Bridge
Gigabyte Mobo

Geforce Gtx 670
16gig ddr3 ram

Noctua NH-D14 heatsinkfan
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835608018



----

The OC program I was using kept crashing, I was wondering what program I should use to OC my stuffs?

Also, when I OC my CPU, should I leave it OC'd? How long should I run my computer for? Right now I leave my computer on for maybe 2-3 days in a row, then I'll turn it off sometimes when I leave for work. Am I OC'ing for specific things, like playing games? Or OC'ing for everything?

Same with my GPU, what prog shoudl I use? And ofc, I dont have a good heatsink, fan on it to leave it OC"d i wont even ask.

And finally what temperatures should I be seeing from my GPU and CPU? I get good speeds for playing video games, which is what I mainly use it for. But I'd like to OC my stuff to play some games, and ofc to run programs like max.

To overclock your cpu it's much better to go into the bios and start overlocking by increasing the fsb by increments of 5mhz. You will just have to see what can hold stable and if it's not stable then you might have to add some voltage. Don't forget to check your temps on the cpu. Once it's overclocked you should leave it overclocked. For your gpu the best programs to overclock would probably be afterburner or evga precision x.

How do i know its stable? Do i put a glass of water on top of my tower, and if it falls off its unstable? b/c ive been trying that i dont thnk it works. sorry.

how hot is my compoopoo supposed to gets? RELINQUISH YOUR SECRETS!

First of all don't try to overclock by changing the fsb (blck). Leave that at 100. Change the multiplier instead, that's what you bought the K version for. Try testing your clocks with prime95 to make sure no errors arise. This should be done for a number of hours as 30 mind is just not going to cut it. There's a whole tom of information on this forum about overclocking that processor so I'd suggest you do some searches. Good luck!

Telling me to do my own research and not be lazy? What kind of reply is this! ofc i didn't use the search function before just making a thread. I like to do things the easy way. I thought people would crawl over each other to show off how much they know to the noob.

I haven't touched the bios yet, if no one wants to slay me with their info sword, then I guess i'll just...have...to...use google...

thanks for the replies, and i will be crossing my fingers for some more nuggets of info. dont be shy now! thumb.gif

If you can play a game while your computer is overclocked to see if your cpu will hold stable. You will know it's stable if you don't get any bsod's. If you are getting bsod's while your computer is overclocked drop the overclock down a little bit and try again.
