Overclocking i7 5820K ( EVGA X99FTW motherboard/ Corsair Vengeance 2666MHz DDR4 32GB)

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello, a few weeks I built a gaming rig. I'm interested in overclocking my CPU. I'm a little bit confused with the BIOS when it comes to overclocking. Is there anyone here with experience with this same hardware combo that can help please? I couldnt find it on YouTube. My friend told me what to do but he is hard to reach( In case he sees this, he knows who he is...hehehe)
Here are my overall PC specs
Case: Corsair 780T
Windows 10 Pro
EVGA X99FTW motherboard
GPU: MSI GTX 980Ti
Intel i7 5820k CPU
32 GB RAM DDR4 2666MHz
CPU Cooler = Corsair H100i GTX (4 fans push-pull)
Intel 535 240GB SSD boot

Thanks in advance for your replies. smile.gif

There are some videos out there for the 5820k with another motherboard combo... just follow their easy to follow steps and you should be good. The common OC for a 5820k is to just increase the step to 45 and cpu voltage to 1.3 and fine tune it from there... but if you just looking for a boost without going balls to the wall then going for something like a simple 4.0ghz should be easily obtainable with a small voltage increase.
