So I am new to overclocking and my brand new computer I built is all at stock settings. I figured I would try 4 way optimization before trying to do things manually to see how that would go. When I tried to use 4 way optimization as outlined in this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_zb499DBvMs with my system: http://pcpartpicker.com/user/Wingzero01/saved/3Bmr In the TPU when 4 way optimization was running my BCLK if that is what the value is called was 80, so in the 4 way optimization it was this 80*44= 3520mhz obviously basically no change. Does anyone know why it wasn't a hundred? What is wrong, what should I be looking for? I had no other programs open or the second monitor plugged in. I also tried to run it multiple times and got the same result. I realize manual is the better choice once I do more research, but it would be nice to see something I paid for work.

auto-OC’ing is still a little awkward, id try to manually OC your system. it brings a lot of benefits if you do it manually, F.E: YOU decide what clocks/voltage its getting, you can easily troubleshoot, you learn how OC’ing works etc...

i can recommend this guide, i used it too and am now running my 4770k at 4,4GHz

EDIT: looking at your cooling, you cant relly expect a very high overclock, bet you’ll probably get to 4.2 if you’re lucky with your chip :)

@krapton thanks for the guide, I will take it into consideration. I have been looking for a good guide for manual overclock basically all of yesterday. And yeah I just wanna get at least 4.0ghz, I would be fine with that. Wonder if it is worth it because, doesn't the cpu turbo boost when needed to 3.9ghz by itself anyways?

Yes, the it increases its clock speed if the temps allow it, but its better to switch off turbo boost and set up your own clocks. Its all described in the guide i mentioned :)
