Looking to OC my core i5 760 Looking for a sort of guide

I know these cpu's have a lot of extra features, i've overclocked my p4 lga 755 from 3.2ghz to 4.6ghz on air cooling with decent cable management and High airflow case.

But i feel almost overwhelmed by the new features on these processors.


Also i have my new cpu cooler arriving about 5 days from now so i was thinking about OCing from stock, not much OC'ing because well, it's stock lol.

What number's will should i expect to get from this OC.
What is the easiest way to tell cpu temp for the new brand of cpu's.


thanks for the help in advance i might some more questions with the more information i receive, if i left anything major out plz let me know i've had a lot of brain farts today ; lol!

  1. Hello.

    First, download CPU-Z. Second, I am not sure what you mean by #'s? Do you mean the frequency of information cycling or the initial temperature?

    The more information the better i wouldn't mind knowing voltage, fsb, frequency, etc.
  3. Try to reduce the Multi to 19, then You will start form there.
  4. I overclocked my i5 760 to 3.0 ghz, and here is how i did it
