Built a new PC - Need help OC'ing - Page 4

You cant just ask 1000 people with 1000 different chips what your voltage should be.

Your chips requirements will be different than anyone elses, and less will cause instability, more will cause it to just die faster.

learn your system, and then decide whats best for you.

I dont understand the concept of how much i should raise my voltage or anything. I dont want to burn my pc.

why is it complicated to tell me what i should raise my voltage too from 1.350v to try and test 4.7ghz again, an experienced user can tell me what setting to try. if you read all my posts, maybe you can answer my question sir

what do I need to do to raise it?? do I just raise it to 4.7ghz and not touch voltage or how does that work?

also my max temp reached was 84c but its averaging around 79c while under 100% stress

another thing I noticed is my temps are fluctuating a little between cores...like 5-10C, is that just thermal paste that needs to be re-applied or could it be something else or is it completely normal??

Haha, increase multiplier only!

boot to windows and test.

if it crashes, up voltages 1 or 2 steps.

When its stable for an acceptable amount of time you can keep that setting or move on.


keep settings in notepad. learn your hardware.

This is applicable for like every aspect of setting in the bios. It will take forever, but at the end your computer will have a name and personality and will probably be insanely fast and reliable.

quickly edited for skipped a step. :]

man im asking the voltage so i dont fry my computer, uve probably overclocked hundreds of chips and instead of telling me what i should try and not try, ur being a douche

If you want a step by step Asus Z87 / 4770K guide read this.
http://www.simforums.com/forums/haswell-48ghz-on-air-building-a-haswell-system_topic46180.html

It is long and a lot of it is written with people in mind who's main interest, if not their only interest is in maximum performance with FSX, so some of the opinions contained in regards to developers, etc. would not be of interest to you if you do not care about anything FSX related.

As far as I know this is the best, if not the only, step by step 4007K/ Asus Z87 overclocking guide on the net. There is an Asus Rog guide, but that is for ROG boards.

You make it sounds like you want someone elses settings, I am trying to tell you it wont work that way because your chip is going to react different, and have slightly different margin for error.

You need to start from ground 1, which is bone stock. even following a guide, they generally tell you to test with everything at stock first.


Following a guide is one thing, but in most cases will only take you so far, and one has been linked already so there is no need to repeat the things in the guides. Sorry I didnt realise it was a guide for a different platform.

The one Isahosurge linked is basically what you should follow.

If you cant understand, then it is not your time to overclock young padawan. There is a learning curve, and that curve needs to be surpassed so you dont break stuff.

are you ready and willing to start replacing broken stuff yet? What would you do if you fried your entire computer?

I did a quick browse around the search function, it looks like most people are having the best luck with this guide, whether you have a gigabyte board or not.

biggrin.gif I would pop in here, ask your questions there. You will get alot of suggestions and help, far moreso than in this thread!

I am sorry If I seemed rude. I was kind of hopping around your questions with my own suggestions, But I support the idea of you learning your hardware, as opposed to using other peoples settings.
