Looking for somewhere to start in overclocking 3570k

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Hello, i finally got my Hyper 212 evo today, after my stock cooler being broken and my CPU running at 105c. I tried going into my BIOS and changing the clockspeed to 4.4ghz, but then i got a blue screen, Added some 0.05 voltage to it as well and still didnt post. Where to start my OCN fellas?

OK, you'll need to edit some bios settings to get this working:

Lets start off with a manual voltage of 1.22V for a 4.2 GHz overclock:

BIOS Settings:
Core Multiplier = 42x
BLCK: 100.00 MHz, always keep it at that speed.
Memory: Use X.M.P Profile if available, if not, set the clock speed to the rated clocks on the ram stickers.
Use a LLC of Medium or High (50% or 75%)
CPU Spread Spectrum: Disabled
Enhanced Intel Speedstep Technology: Enabled
C-States: Enabled for now

So your CPU clock speed is calculated by this: CPU Multiplier X BLCK = 100 x 42 = 4200 MHz = 4.2 GHz.

Use software such as Prime 95/AIDA 64 for stability testing. I'd usually like to keep the temperatures under 79°C for 24/7 use. Also check the Windows Event Logs for WHEA errors, this will tell if your CPU is somewhat stable.

4.4 or higher is going to be pretty hard with that cooler due to voltage and high temperatures.

In order to get to the event logs follow these steps:

Open start menu
Type Event Logger in the search bar > Open up the event logs pane and there you'll see if you might have WHEA errors popping up there, Sometimes error code 19 with it as well, this usually means the Voltage needs to be increased by a notch. You could also decrease the voltage until you get errors.

Most i5 3570K chips can do 4.5 GHz at 1.25V, looks like an unlucky chip.

Hello, thank you for the advice.. Reading the guides and going for it, i seem to have a 4.5 ghz Overclock at 1.306 v. Temps are minimum 35, max 44.

Temps are perfectly fine. Push it more. Try 48X multi and 1.35v

Max 44 on evo 212? Is that also with stress testing? I'm pretty surprised.

Forget you guys, I need well over 1.3V for a crummy 4.4.

Yeah you want to keep it under 95C in stress testing but you will never reach that high in anything other then them
