3770k help overclocking

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hello guys !

First of all, im Felipe, and im from Argentina, so my English could be a bit disgusting hehe.
I've never done any overclocking before, so, i dont know how to do it biggrin.gif .
Here's my build:

Intel i7 3770K 3,4 GHz Ivy Bridge
8 GB DDR3 Kingston 1600 MHz (in BIOS it says 1377 MHz, idk why)
Asus P8Z68- V PRO /GEN 3
Radeon 6850 1GB DDR5
Topower 650 W

Personally i only thought to overclock the i7, but i dont know if you can overclock the ram too. So, can someone explain me how to do the overclocking? Does it have any risks of damaging my PC? Please let me learn what you know about this smile.gif

ed. i have to add that i downloaded CPU-Z and checked that Cores is in 2 and Threads is in 4, i think actually they have to be in 4 and 8.... see

Go into your bios, and manually set the ram to 1666mhz.

Hey Felipe, your english is fine.

I would not recommend overclocking RAM, as I find there is little to no benefit at all in real world scenarios, so I don't think its worth the time and effort.

The cores thing is probably wrong, open up task manager see if you have 8 threads. If you do, you're fine.

Let me know if you need any other help, Dave.

thanks dave !

i opened task manager but i dont find where should i see the number of threads. Also, what i wanted is to overclock the clock speed in order to have a faster pc

First off, according to CPU-z, you have a 3770 non-K CPU, not a 3770k. Because of this, your overclocking is going to be limited to what you can change the Bclk to. It looks like you've already done that some yourself. You're currently running a bus speed of 103. In the process of changing the bclk, you also overclock your memory, as it is tied to the bclk. However, Ivy Bridge and all compatible boards support XMP, so you can manually set your memory speed. Keep in mind that you may encounter instability while doing so.

4 bins over? isn't that how it goes? I can never remember because I don't own any non-k chips.

As rockgod213 has pointed out, you have a non-K version, however I feel like I have read that even the non-k have 4 bins above max turbo that you can go, 43x being max.
