Change Vcore or multiplier

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
It has been years since I have been into computers. Everything has changed regarding overclocking. I have been reading a lot of guides and youtube videos. I have found a pretty good guide that I am using right now. Im using aida64. I ran a stability test for 6 hours with everything at stock. I am now running the processor at 3.8 with 1.2v. Ran another stability test and all is well. My question now is should I keep at 3.8 and keep lowering the voltage until it is no longer stable and go from there? Should I keep it at 1.2 and raise the multiplier? My goal for now is to get at 4.2ghz. I am running realtemp and temps are good.

Intel 4670k with asus z87 motherboard.

I would keep it at 1.2 and see where it starts petering out. If you lower the vcore now, you'll hit a wall a lot sooner than just leaving it as a static variable for the time being.

Once you reach your goal, you can fine tune your settings.

I dropped the voltage before you responded. I dropped it to 1.950. I upped the multiplier to 4.0. So far so good. My temps reached a maximum of 63 on 3 cores and 67 on one core at 100 percent load. Will run aida64 for the afternoon and go from there.
