Need help with OC 3770 (non-K)

Hi,
Can somebody help me with OC my 3770 non-k version?
I OC'ed it to 4.1 with multiplier but even if I set it to x43 I can't pass 4.1 ghz (I've seen some people did and I have some room for OC left too), so what is the best way to do it? Right now I get around 50-60c with only +0.2V over stock and I use MSI Z77A-G41 with latest BIOS.
Also, I have my RAM on 1866 and I wonder, should I worry more about ram freq or cpu freq? I play at 1440p and will buy 1080 or 1080 Ti soon when I'll find a good deal.

Use a good cooler, add voltage, delid and add more voltage.
Make sure you're cache and ram have been set manually to lower speeds so they aren't causing the crash and make sure your input voltage is around .5v over vcore.

Edit: oh crap...non K...gotcha.

You need to enable the C states, C3 or C6, so the non-K CPUs can access their maximum multiplier. When this is working correctly, you should see a difference in single threaded benchmarks.

I used to have one of those. You can get 1 core to 43 on multi, but really, it's all about good cooling and then BCLK (bus speed from 100 to 103 or so). Fastest 3770 non-k on Dry Ice I have seen is 4677MHz at a BCLK bus of over 108, but most of the time, your PCI devices start to act weird after 103.5 BCLK in daily use (it can also potentially damage them if you clock BCLK too high), give or take...also remember that your memory speed will change with the bus speed. I suggest you max the multi, then change BCLK to 101, test thoroughly, then another 0.5 MHz BCLK step after that...rinse and repeat.

Good luck

You are subject to rules set by intel for running turbo states for non-k multiplier OC. Intel allows you to set the multiplier 4 bins higher than the stock max turbo frequency. A 3770 has a max turbo of 3.9GHz, so you should be able to set 4.3GHz, but it is still considered a turbo frequency, so don't expect those clocks 24/7 as it will still obey rules and limitations of turbo (amount of current, length of time of turbo state, temperatures, etc).

Thank you guys for your replies, I will try one more time as soon as my case fans will be delivered! Performance is still good @4.1 but I'm still thinking maybe I should go with 9700k and not to wait for the 10th series
