How to overclock i5 4670k to 4.0ghz - 4.5 ghz

Hello I am new to overclocking on the desktop and I have a Silverstone AR01 81.4 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler with a Gigabyte GA-Z87X-D3H ATX LGA1150 Motherboard

I was wondering how to OC the cpu and what software should I use to OC it. What is a good cool tempture I should hit? Also how long should I stress test my CPU and what software do you recommend to stress test it?

Hi Mrjellop, welcome to the world of overclocking smile.gif.

Before we start however, make sure you have a lot of time overclocking takes a while.

Your set up seems to be set for overclocking, HOWEVER: your CPU cooler will not be optimal for 4.5ghz+. I'd say only for 4.2 ghz.

There isn't anyway "program" for overclocking per se, its generally DIY.

Here is a guide on how to overclock on your board:

As for stress testing, you should use AIDA 64: http://www.aida64.com/downloads/a64xe (trial) and should stress test for about 10 - 24 hours.

NOTE: DON'T GO CRAZY WITH THE VOLTAGE. I'D SAY STAY BELOW 1.3v.

Thx and 4.2ghz is fine smile.gif

So I go 4.2ghz first or go 4.0ghz then 4.1 then 4.2?
And he has a i7 4770k should I still follow what he does and put the setting like his on my 4670k?

Also in the bios do I leave everything to auto and just put the clock ratio to 4.0 ghz etc if I don't know what I am doing ?

Don't leave everything to auto, make sure your CPU voltages stay under 1.3v! Also, I'd say just set it to 4.2ghz, an overclock to 4.2 isn't pretty hard on the CPU.

Make sure to read all the guides and videos posted above.
