Hi I have been searching for a guide on overclocking the Asus Sabertooth X58 with a socket 1333 I7 975 extream Arctic Freezer Xtreme REv2 12 GB of Corsair Dominator memory 8-8-8-24 16000mhz an 850 watt Coolermaster PSU it will have and Video will be the GTX 750 TI super clocked it the best of all in the GTX and a Samsung EVO 500 SSD OS drive, Lg Blu-ray drive with a 3 terabit storage drive. The stuff is all new but dated I am upgrading this system for my wife She plays mostly Browser games online and we paly LOTRO.
My goal it to overclock this rig to 4.2 to 4.3 bump the memory to about 1800. the 975 is an extream. Now it been like 4 years since I worked on an X58 board and then I was using a 920 so I need some advice on getting started on overclocking I do remember there was something tricky about the CPU voltage when overclocking socket 1333 I7 CPUS

Ok that's the rig
Any help would be really appreciated

Wow, I am surprised no one has answered. I am pretty sure not that long ago this was a hot setup I know that the setup should not be all that different than a locked CPU I know that it must set up just about the same as any other i7 but from what I remember you don't have to push the memory as you can set up the multiplier. I know there is a bunch of stuff you disable just like any other overclock what I need to know is mostly about the CPU setting so I don't cook the chip it been a good 3 years since I clocked anything and that was this one I am using know I7 1155 2700k socket that only has dual channel memory and the CPU just about overclocked itself so if someone could please point me to a post that would give me the basics I would really appreciate it
TIA

Wow. That was quite the pile of non-delineated hardware.

Overclocking this should not be too difficult.
1. Try just increasing the multiplier to the desired level and monitor for temperature and instability, nothing needs to be disabled.
2. Try increasing the base clock, monitor temperatures and for instability. Nothing needs to be disabled.
3. If you have instability in either of the last two steps, increase the voltage slowly and thoroughly test again.
4. If you have overheating in either of the last two steps, make sure the computer is getting plenty of cool air and replace your thermal paste then try again . If that doesn't help, clean/replace the cooler and try again. If that doesn't work upgrade to water cooling.

The only time you will "cook" your cpu is if you let it overheat for too long, or jump the voltage too high. If steps 1 and 2 work for you as-is, enjoy.

The only time you will need to start disabling things is if you need 5.0GHz overclocks and are maxing out your current cooling solution; In this case you might need to disable a core for heat management reasons.

non-delineated ? Ok what that mean. It a bunch of older high end components is all it is for the type of gaming we do that is plenty we play Lotro and my wife plays browser games. The components are all good stuff just not the newest good stuff. I know that is a bit older but now days computer are no more jumping ahead it leaps and bounds you can build a top of the line PC now days and get 5 years out it easy back when I started you got 5 months and it was out dated. I know everyone think they need 4 video cards now day and latest and greatest of every thing but he fact is benchmark is the only thing that will show you any difference. I built myself a 17 2700k when I retired my 17 920 and in reality I never really noticed any difference now day someone gain 2 frames a second and thee bragging I know that this forum is all about the latest and greatest but I have been a member here forever and I was not got to change forums because I have to work with some older gear. My point is what was great 4 years ago is still damn good today other than every one have to use 4 1000$ video cards that than really can't see any difference in. Pc Hardware just is not going in leaps and bounds it just kinds crawls 4 years ago it would have cost like 3 grand to build this PC along and any Pc that hit 4.2 to 5.5 GHz is just fine. Now don't get wrong I not one of those folks still using XP
I going with win 10
Im feel that this set up will do just fine and I should get a decent clock out of it and for the 4oo to 500 bucks. I will have into it my wife will love it after all shes still happy with her socket 775 with a extreme chip and 560 ti and a raptor drive clocked to 4 GHZ and 8 gigs of ram and its running Win 10 just fine and I always turn off all that cpu throttling junk that don't play well with overclocking and I know you just don't crank up the Multiplier some is multiplier and what the other BLK or something and I know I have to loosen up the timing on the memory a bit and add a bit of voltage there too so I can hit around 1800mhz and if I get the over clocking right tweak the video card a bit I should get some respectable Frame per second for her MMO games she plays and all the hardware is good solid stuff most of was top shelf a few years back and it sure 10 better that that junk they sell at best buy
