  1. Theres a guide here for the 3770k which will be very similar:

    Take your time, and work in small increments.


    Firstly though, do you have a upgraded CPU cooler, and good airflow in your case?

    The Arctic pro 7 is ok but not great for overclocking, but it should be fine for around 4.1-4.2Ghz I would guess, but keep an eye on your temperatures.
  4. I have a Hyper 212 Plus and I was able to hit 4.5ghz stable. The Artic Pro might be a little smaller but like previous poster said, you should be able to hit 4-4.2ghz.

    As far as OC, do the following to yield the best temps.

    offset leave it a +0.05
    Intel Turbo Boost increment one notch at a time. Begin with +0.04 and work your way up.
    Load Line Calibration (LLC) leave it on either 50% or 75% (Level 2 or Level 3)
    Spread Spectrum Disabled
    Everything else on Auto

    Each increment run Prime95 Blend for about 15 min.

    Using this method I was able to OC to 4.5ghz @ 1.186v with temps not going over 77c after many hours of full load on Prime95.

    let me know if you have any more questions.
