Advice on overclocking the i7 2600k

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
Hi, I'm a long time lurker, but haven't ever posted here.
I like reading what enthusiast achieve with their builds, it's quite interesting to me.

Recently, I ordered a new rig, and I'll soon be putting it together.
The specs are below:

Case: Corsair 600T
Motherboard: Asus P8P67 Pro
PSU: Corsair HX 750W
CPU: i7 2600k
CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-D14
VGA: EVGA GTX 470 (Fermi) SuperClocked
RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800)
HDD: Crucial RealSSD C300 64GB

I really did my best picking the parts, reading up on reviews and comparing them to others.

Where I am lost are how to overclock my rig manually. (CPU, VGA, RAM)
I know that ASUS has their auto tune utility, but I want to achieve higher clocks on my own (That's the fun of it after all smile.gif),
and I think it just overclocks the CPU, but I may be wrong.

Does anyone have a similar build that can lead me in the right direction with a good safe overclock?
From there I think I can tweak things a bit.

If you're out there, please post your exact settings! I'd greatly appreciate it.
Thank you, I'll post what I achieve once it gets here! Can't wait!

lower the multiplier, or higher the multiplier. The End.

If you get this board, you'll be able to get plenty of help OC'ing your CPU here on OCN once you have everything put together. Lots of people here going with it.

Everything you picked looks pretty good to me.

I shouldn't change the default 100 B clock?
Oh, and do you have any advice for RAM timings or the 470 fermi superclocked?

there are sandy bridge voltage threads and sb oc guides here. http://www.overclock.net/intel-general/910467-ultimate-sandy-bridge-oc-guide-p67a-4.html
look at the bluescreen error codes in that guide too.
read your motherboard manual and heep in nearby.
with your realssd make sure you use intel 6gbs sata port on your motherboard. dont use marvell

Thank you, I'll definitely read into voltages. That's something I really have no insight on.

If I understand correctly, on my motherboard there are two kinds of SATA ports? And I should use the 6gb rated one, not the "Marvell" one. Right?

And thank you again, for another great response smile.gif

correct. ocing on this board is pretty easy. You increase the individual core multipliers and the vcore as needed. Here is a link and a video that has about everything you need.
