Guides for overclocking i7-2600k?  

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I'm looking for recommended guides or things of that nature for overclocking an i7-2600k. I've always been AMD, never Intel. And it'll have the new UEFI BIOS, so I'll be ultra confused.

I heard overclocking an i7-2600k chip is a joke, so hopefully someone can shed some light!

Thanks ^_^

Here's another guide wink.gif

No but on a serious note, overclocking these chips really doesn't take a guide...

1. Up the Turbo Ratio
2. Up the VCore
3. Reboot
