Overclocking my Z68 Extreme3 Gen3/i5 2500k 3.3ghz

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi OCnet!

I would like to overclock my cpu, I have past experience with overclocking my GPU, but then I was told all the max settings I could use for the overclock.
I would like to know what my max settings could be for this overclock, if anybody possible could help me, that would mean a lot.

Also; should I use the BIOS or the Asrock Overclock Tuner?

I saw this on another thread

CPU Multiplier x45
BCLK: 100mhz
Short and Long duration: 230/200.
core current limit 200
Vcore: OFFSET mode +0.020Volts
Load line calibration: LEVEL 4
Spread spectrum disabled
SpeedStep: on

Could that work?

The ASRock utility has its place, but it is not in traditional overclocking. I am going to point you to this thread, as there is more to it than just plugging in "max settings". Every chip will have different voltage requirements, and temperatures will highly influence your final overclock as well. Read the guide on the first page, and feel free to post questions here or in that forum as well. Filling out "rigbuilder" at the top of the page and adding it to your signature will also help people to help you. We will be able to see your hardware configuration and suggest solutions based on your specific needs.

Hope that helps!
