Any decent guide to do a safe overclock on i5 4690k?

Hey. Nothing crazy, just a little a safe oc. Something like 4.1-4.2GHz will be fine. Got a Noctua Nh-u12s and my case is Nox Hummer ZX. Thanks in advance!

  1. Best thing to do is slightly increase the multiplier, or mhz, until you start reaching instability crashes etc, or it gets too hot for your system to handle, and then when it reaches that point back it off a little. Just gonna be going to the bios a few times. But you should be able to start with 4.1, and go from there, increasing .1 at a time.

    I would keep that CPU under 1.300v and below 80C. Youll be able to overclock to 4.5GHZ most likely. Just bump voltage up and clocks.
