How to 4770K OC + HDD Issues (Updated)

I have used AI Suite 3's 4 way optimization and that has bumped the turbo to 4.2 Ghz... However there are so many options and things to do in the BIOS that I don't know where to begin ! I want to get a stable OC stuck at a frequency ( and IGPU OC) on Air cooling and I really need as much help as possible.

+ my 3TB HDD needs to be sorted in disk management.. However it has sectioned 2 parts off... One part is about 2TB and the other is 746 GB and I cannot join them together and it only allows me to set a "new simple volume" on the 2 TB space...

Asus MAXIMUS VI EXTREME
4770K
16GB 1600MHz corsair
Samsung 840 SSD

UPDATE : I tried to run AIDA 64 Extreme trial version with a multiplier of 44 and CPU Cache at 44 with a voltage of 1.3v... in the test i can stress the CPU alone but when I selected FPU, Cache and memory I got a BSOD.. Yes I don't know what I'm doing xD

got it to boot at 1.3v at 4.4, however how can I stop it from going back down to 3.5 Ghz and keep it like the voltage at 1.3 ?

Here is a good video to get you started (he uses the same board as you):

He doesn't say how to stop the frequency from staying at the set amount, my 4770k is going from 3.5 to 4.4 atm

Is it dropping down to 3.5 under load? If so, the CPU is throttling. What are the temperatures?

either a thermal throttling - or... more likely, this is a turbo effect of power saving feature. Have you turned off power save settings? EPS, Green power, C1, c3? settings?

Good guide to start with:

I reset everything and let AI suite 3 take over, set it to 4.4 with 1.25V at 50 degrees with 60% fan power, however the Hard disk problem seems serious, I can only seem to use 2TB in disk management and now I can hear a clunking sound every 1-2 seconds, have changed cables and still makes noise, I fear a bust HDD HELPPPP

Oh dear gods.... you summoned Beelzebub himself....

I cannot say this enough - OC software is horribly unreliable, known to cause registry issues, known to not efficiently OC. PLEASE avoid. Not sure how i missed this the first time tbh... But that was the point of giving you the guide.

As far as your HD - you can try a program like partition magic to reset - dump partitions and rebuild. But i fear you might have a failing cache or actuator. This can also happen if it has recently been bumped or gotten too hot. Try unplugging the HD for a few hours and let it completely cool -internals too hence the time frame. SOMETIMES can solve. Fire back up and get in bios screen. If you here the clunking while in bios you have a hd hardware issue. if it only occurs while in windows you have a drive recognition issue that can be related to drivers or registry corruption

I know people have had bad experiences but I managed to do a stability test and play games on it with ease, still no BSODS or anything so I think I MAY be ok... and I changed cables, during boot it was ok.. some clunking maybe during a load, but once I opened HW monitor CPUID clunking began again... May send it back... and it's cool to te touch + In front of an intake fan
