First of all I'm using this guide:
So I'm referencing everything to that guide http://www.overclock.net/t/1198504/complete-overclocking-guide-sandy-bridge-ivy-bridge-asrock-edition

It's a 3570k on an H100

Okay I don't know if I'm doing this right, someone tell me if I am doing so or not

First I changed every setting to what it has in the "Settings" section, then I started with the starting off section, having the Offset to +0.005v and turbo boost to +0.004v and I've been increasing the CPU multiplier by 1 after every successful 5 min prime test, right now I'm at 4.4Ghz. The thing is, were you supposed to be changing the Offset and Turbo boost also?

I only saw that it says "Pass: Increase CPU Multiplier" and "Fail: Decrease CPU Multiplier" I haven't failed it so I've been increasing the CPU multiplier and it doesn't say to mess with the offset or Turbo Boost.

Should I continue increasing my multiplier and leave the turbo and offset alone?
Like I said, Offset is at +0.005v and turbo boost at +0.004v with the CPU Multiplier at 4.4GHz

Also I don't know if I should include, but my max temp is 76c, is that alright?

That temp is fine and lower than the stock temp on prime95 w/ a stock cooler. Do you have LLC enabled? If so you are running more than +.05 over volt. 4.4GHz is about the wall for little to no over volt and some can hit that without even over volting at all.

So no you don't need to increase the offset each time you up the multi. You only need to up it if it crashes or a worker fails and you want to secure that multi. Otherwise lower the multi.

Just an FYI because of the crap TIM between the CPU and the IHS mid 70s is about as good as it gets. I have a huge radiator and I hit 70s at 4.4GHz.

I have the LLC at Level 3

From the guide:
Quote:
CPU Load-Line Calibration: Level 2 or Level 3 (whichever one will get you closest to BIOS Vcore)
~When a CPU increases to max speed, the Vcore usually tends to drop down. This is known as Vdroop. If the Vcore drops down too much, it can lead to stability issues. To combat this, CPU LLC was made to offset this loss. Level 5 (0%) will net you the least compensation, Level 3 (50%) an average compensation, and Level 1 (100%) the most compensation. You want to find the setting that will get you the same Vcore that is says in BIOS, during load in Windows as reported by CPU-Z.
~Level 1 seems to spike your Vcore up really high during load, so I do not recommend using that.

IGPU Voltage Offset: Auto
~This option is only shown if your motherboard supports Intel's Internal-GPU (the GPU inside the CPU).
~I wouldn't mess with this setting. You should have a separate GPU card anyways.

IGPU Load-Line Calibration: Auto
~This option is only shown if your motherboard supports Intel's Internal-GPU (the GPU inside the CPU).
~Works the same as CPU LLC but for the IGPU. I wouldn't mess with this either.
Alright so I should continue increasing the multi and leaving the offset at +0.005v and turbo at +0.004v?
Is a 4.5Ghz good enough to settle on or should I continue pushing it?

I'm sorry for asking so much, it's my first time overclocking and I don't want anything to go wrong

Stop at 4.5... It is likely that you will hit a HUGE vcore wall very quickly after 4.4GHz so if you made it to 4.5 with no overcore aside from the +.05 offset and the LLC at level 3 then I would quite.

That sounds about right for my proc as well. I need the 2nd highest LLC for 4.5 the lowest LLC (besides off) for 4.4GHz and the .05v offset (just to keep it off auto really) If you want to get the processor cooler then turn then measure your vcore under load with CPU-z then turn the LLC down one click. Up the offset 6 clicks reboot measure again and then reduce or increase the offset to where it is 1 click less than what it was with the LLC up a setting. Then test for stability and keep dropping the offset till you are unstable (then go back up) or you hit +.05. Don't let it go to auto and I don't really recommend mixing negative offset with any LLC setting because it is causing the processor to be over volted under load and under volted when on part throttle.
