I5 3570k OC halp.

I've finally gotten around to giving a shit about overclocking, however I literally have no idea to do so. I had a buddeh swing by my house a few months ago to give me a rundown, but I've completely forgotten out on how to do eet.

I've tried different guides on various sites however it seems as if my motherboard is considered a minority, thus a whole different BIOS shennagins are going on and I end up feeling like a little boi lost at walmart.

My CPU is an i5 3570k as already mentioned. Motherboard is a gigabyte z68x. I've tried that BIOS menu and shiznit but I just derp out.

So, yeah it'd be great if someone could throw some advice my way. If not, perhaps some harsh criticisms. Thanks. Or not.


Edit: I'm currently @ 3.4ghz, standard I want to be in the range of 4.0-4.2ghz, and please disregard any threats of damage as I plan to replace said PSU sooner or later. Probably later.

    I dunno, that'd be a step up from being a moronic grammar nazi.

    ahahah what a fail.
    Anyway, it's not a PSU, it's a CPU.
    Follow this guide, he has a different CPU but the same motherboard so it should be very similar.

    Basically to overclock, you just want to increase the CPU frequency, run IBT and keep on doing so until either windows can't boot or IBT crashes. Then you should increase the voltage up one step. Keep on doing this until you get the frequency you want, and when you do, try and put the voltage down by one, until you get the lowest voltage that's stable with the frequency you want.
    Good luck.
