I'm new to overclocking, and would like to know how to overclock my i7 4770k

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello, I recently got a new rig, a pretty beast one, and I'm loving it. However, my friends were telling me I should overclock my CPU to 4.50ghz, but the thing is that I have no idea how to overclock it.
All I know is that I have to use the BIOS, but I still don't know how tongue.gif.

The CPU I'm using is a i7 4770K @3.50 GHZ.
I'm also using a COOLER MASTER Seidon 120V Watercooling Kit for my CPU, and my motherboard I'm using is a Gigabyte GA-Z87X-D3H Socket 1150.

So if anyone can teach me how to overclock my cpu, and explain the risks or the pros and cons, I'd really appreciate it.

Thank you very much

If there's any more information you need, please let me know.. thanks.
