i5-760 Hit 4GHZ, but can I do better?

post #1 of 7

Hey guys,

I am trying to push this chip to its limit, but while being stable (which is the point of overclocking right?). I currently have my chip with these specs:

Now I have read that you should drop the multiplier down and increase the BCLK & Voltage, is this true? Any tips would be greatly appreciated.

If I remember correctly, the average for an i5 maximum overclock is 4.2ghz. (or maybe that was for i3's, or both).

It's the other way around. Leave your BCLK the same and increase multiplier. You might need to bump voltages a little.

I will give it a try. I had the Multiplier at 19X and had the BCLK at 214, but went to 215 and my system restarted, lol. I was like OH SHI*

Raise the CPU voltage to 1.35V and the uncore to like 1.32V and push the BCLK as high as it can go on that voltage while staying within temp limitations as well. A higher BCLK with low multi will perform better than a lower BCLK with a higher multi. But it also requires more voltage for the same frequency.

I notice you have 8Gb of RAM, are they 2x4Gb or 4x2Gb. If they are the latter then you will need more Uncore voltage due to the extra stress on the IMC

Also BSOD's are just part of the OC process, nothing to worry about

My memory is 2x4GB

I am assuming that Uncore is QPI since in my bios there is no mention of Uncore except for an option to remap the memory. I have no voltage settings for QPI, just rates which are:

Auto
4270MHz
4800MHz

So which one would I choose to overclock to 1.32V?

I really don't think there is an UCLK option for these processor or Asus decided to leave it out, because it does not seem to be in my bios, so do i just skip over the uncore voltage and just bump the Voltage to 1.35 and increase the BCLK?
