- Do not install any Gigabyte crappy software. Install drivers only.
- Set Default Optimized Settings in Bios. Reboot.
- Insatll Windows. Reboot to Bios.
- Set XMP for RAM if supported.
- Disable Intel TurboBoost.
- Set multiplier to x40. Reboot to Windows
- Stress test with Prime95 and monitor temp with HWmonitor.
- If Prime95 is stable for 20 minutes and CPU temp below max limit which is 99C then you can OC some more.
- Raise multiplier by 1 and test again until your goal is reach (I leave mine at 4Ghz)
- If you get BSOD or Shutdown, reboot to Bios, set CPU Vcore to Notmal then raise Dynamic Vcore some notch and test again.
- Crash? Raise Vcore a notch and test again.
- If you get frustrated because you can't find that sweet spot (good OCing value and low Vcore=low temp) then set everything back to default and leave it the way it is. Good luck.
