I7 4770K Overclocking, what else should i modify?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone. I read already all the guides and also the tips from ASUS to overclock my CPU (Maximus VI Hero)
My CPU is actually delided, i think my chip is great, i could achieve a stable 4.9GHz at 1.34v but thats too much i'm fine with 4.2GHz but im still very confused although i read everything i still don't understand what to touch or combine or whatever- What i only did to the BIOS is the following

-AI Overclocking tune -> XMP
-Turbo Core : Sync All Cores
-CPU Ratio: 42
-Max Cache Ratio: 42
-CPU Core Voltage: Manual (1.05v)
-CPU Cache Voltage: Manual (1.05v)

Thats all!.. In the guides there are stuff saying i should change my CPU Load Line Calibration, and many other stuff, everything is default except for those settings. My PC is running super fine and smooth but just wanted to learn how to do an OC the advanced way.

CPU Temps:

Idle: 34ºc
Load:52ºc

Cooler: Corsair H80i Push Pull

I'll be very grateful to see tips and facts about Intel Overclocking for noobs.

Here is a guide specifically geared towards Asus Z87 motherboards that you can look at.
