Hey guys!
So I just got my new computer and I am eager to OC it, Im gonna boost it to 4.2GHz. What do I tinker? The multiplier, or the clock speed? Also, should I change the voltage by a tick? Or just keep it that way?
Got the NH-U9B SE2 NOCTUA fan for the proccessor, so no problem with heat.
If I do change the voltage, to what voltage should I change it? IE, one, two, three ticks?

first of all try to overclock with stock voltage, and 4.2Ghz could be easily done with stock voltage in this way your cpu will last about more than 5 years.

yes, you need to raise the multiplier by 100.
which mobo you own?

You could always read any readily available OC guides to figure out what you're

Here's one:

The short of it, though, is just increase the multiplier and when it crashes/doesn't boot/whatever you'll need to increase voltage. Bear in mind that 1.4V is considered a lot of voltage, so you're not trying to go 2V thinking that's proper lol. I've seen it happen (well, read about it).
