I am looking to overclock my i5-3350p from 3.1ghz to ~3.5-3.6ghz. I am completely new to overclocking, so any advice or walk-through is greatly appreciated.

Most people have told me that if I have to ask how to overclock, then I shouldn't be doing it in the first place. I hope that this is not the case. I built my pc, so I'm not completely useless, although I know that is no difficult task.

If you need my dxdiag, please let me know.

What motherboard do you have?

You actually need a K-series CPU to overclock BUT if you have B75 chipset you can reach max turbo speed.

If you wanted to overclock you should have bought a K processor, not a P processor.



You really need to stop this, every thread you are not helpful at all. Instead you "attack" the OP every time. Please stop it.

Then all you need to do is go into the BIOS and raise your multiplier to 3.3GHz(x33), that is the max you will be able to go with that CPU.
To be honest its not worth it since your CPU will mostly run at that speed when necessary if it is well cooled...

Thank you! Is this safe?

Perfectly safe, just keep an eye on temps but it should not overheat.

As helpful as always knowitall......

Contrary to knowitall's answer, its is possible to overclock with out a 'k' processor, depending on which motherboard you have. Its possible to overclock with BCLK, but it is tricky and you should most definitely read about it. For certain SB/IB processors it overclocks the base clock, ram, and other components, and as such has the potential to fry them if you don't do the overclock correctly.

Have a look at this link:

http://www.masterslair.com/determining-your-maximum-bcl...

it's a guide to bclk overclocking, but has an unlocked 'k' processor in the system. However you should be able to get good information on where to start. And as I said read, read and then read some more about it, before you star messing with it. Overclocking can seem a bit scary, but it's great fun, and very rewarding when it works. :)

Would it be possible to walk me through this, or point me in the right direction on windows 8?

You need to do it in your BIOS. Its not in Windows. press delete at start-up.

Delete is not working, that's why I stated I was using windows 8.

"To get into the BIOS, open Settings, then select General. Under Advanced Startup, click on Restart Now. This will restart your computer into the boot menu."

Shouldn't I be doing this? And I meant what to do once I am in BIOS.

Hi Tuckc,

Here is the manual for your mobo.

http://www.asrock.com/mb/manual.asp?Model=B75M

Have a good read. You should always be as knowledgeable as you can when entering the bios and considering making changes. To enter your bios you press ' delete' or F2. Read the manual, and get an idea of what each setting does. You must change the Turbo Core multiplier up a notch, so it's most likely in the Overclocking/Advanced Settings section of the bios, under CPU configuration or CPU Ratio. There will be some setting that can't be used, and these will most likely be greyed out.
