New to overclocking requesting help with a I7 4770

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
So I currently have a computer in the mail, it should all be here within a week. The build is for a corsair 900D (I figured might as well go all the way biggrin.gif ) my motherboard is a gigabyte lga 1155 ddr3 and the processor is a I7 4770. the processor will be water cooled with a XSPC Rasa 750 RS360 triple radiator. My question is, how much can i squeeze out of it while still being at a safe level and what programs should i use to test.

let me know if you guys need further info or anything ill defiantly post pictures once its all here

I hope you don't mean that about the motherboard being a LGA 1155, because the 4770K is a LGA 1150 chip. So it wouldn't fit that motherboard.

But assuming that was a typo, you should check out this thread on Gigabyte overclocking.

From my experience to get any meaningful overclock you have to delid. Think twice whether this path is for you. Before I delided I only got it to 4.2 with insane temps(95C). Now I have it 4.5 at around 65C.

You probably won't get a higher overclock on a 4770 compared to a 4770k since the blck multiplier is locked but it should do 40ghz+ easily. thumb.gif

Thank you for pointing that out i had the right parts on the list but ordered the wrong part. But seeing as the motherboard and radiator has been shipped id rather just switch the processor. I was thinking of getting a Intel Core i7-3770K but would that be optimal ?

sorry for asking so many questions i just want what will work best any feedback is appreciated

Yes, if you already have a LGA 1155 motherboard on order, I would just get a 3770K. Pretty much the same performance.
