i5 3570K Overclock Help

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I've the i5 3570K overclocked to 4.5GHz with 1.295V and 1.320V at full load for a year and a half now, but recently I keep getting BSOD and it seems to be a unstable overclock over a period of time, so I want to reset the BSOD to default and start the overclock again,

My main use of the computer is for university, internet and a little bit of gaming with onboard graphics, what's the best GHz I should get the chip to?

Is it best to also do a full clean Windows installation as well?

Also can someone guide me through the overclock process please, my specs are listed below,

CPU: Intel i5 3570K
Motherboard: Gigabyte Z77 D3H
Cooler: Alpenföhn Matterhorn Pure

To overclock, I raise the CPU Clock Ratio to 4GHz and leave CPU VCore at default and use Prime95 to stress test for about 30 minutes, if no problems, I keep upping the CPU Clock Ratio using default CPU VCore until I get either error or BSOD? If so how much CPU VCore I should up?
