Overclocking a 3770K :Please Read Description

Ok, I know there are tutorials for overclocking every CPU known to man. I am just requesting what values/digits/numbers to input into my BIOS to overclock my CPU to 3.9 GHz. I am just very hesitant on trying to read information and attempting to overclock from there, if you can help me please post.

My Specs:
i7-3770K 3.5 GHz
GTX 780 Ti
ASUS Sabretooth Z77 MoBo
16GB RipJaws X Series 1600MHz
750W Corsair Power Supply

Note: My system is air cooled that is the reasoning for me wanting a modest overclock.

If you need any other information please post it.

    what are you current temperatures and what is the air cooler that you're using?

    that aside, no one knows the exact voltage and multiplier values you should use for your CPU. every CPU is a little bit different, to overclock is to experiment and find out how far you can go with your particular chip. that said, just step up the multiplier slowly without changing the voltage, and see how far you can get

    I am using the cooler master hyper 212 evo.
  3. oh great, that's a pretty good cooler.

    anyway, keep an eye on the temperatures, and slowly nudge up the multiplier until you hit instability. afterwards, if you want more performance, you can clowly increase the voltage (one or two steps at a time), and continue to push for higher clock speeds. it's a pain I know, but it's the safest way to overclock
