Overclocking I7 4770k

I'm going to begin overclokcing my I7 4770k.

I'm using a Gigabyte Z87x Ud3h motherboard. Was hoping to get some recommended settings for overclocking with these two components. I'm reaching for 4.2 GHz.

    I'm using a Coolermaster 212 Evo. Just pull config at the moment. Idle around 35c.

    You should be able to just put the multiplier at 42. Done. Shouldn't even have to mess with the voltage.

    I'll give it a shot. run stability tests and report back. Thanks.
  6. Just set it to 4.2. Ran in Prime95. Hit 90c Instantly. What should I do from here?
  7. disable turbo?
  8. I'll give that a try. Let's see what we can do.
  9. You can set everything on manual but leave voltage on auto.

    Disabled Intel turbo boost. Still getting 90's in prime95.
  11. This is my current status. http://i.imgur.com/ZAQ0zN4.png
  12. Bump it down to 40 and check again. Looks like you'll need a voltage bump to get 4.2ghz.

    I think we're getting better temps here. http://i.imgur.com/TzNr8Yt.png I think a voltage modification is needed. But what settings for what?
