Asus Sabertooth Z77 with Core i7 3770

Hi All,

I've just finished building my first PC (specs below), I don't have any/much experience of over clocking but want to get the best performance out of my system, I understand the core i7 3370 cant be over clocked as such but the Asus motherboard does give some options to play with, my CPU currently runs at around 30-35, Can any one help and advise how to get the best out of this please?

thanks in advanced

  1. Hi,

    Just thought I'd update on with some screen shots of the settings I can see, I'm guessing Asus have already made some default changes however I still have more settings to play with, any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Here's my set-up a little higher overclock.





  4. Thanks for the reply, I'm only using the i7 3770 (non - k) so unfortunately cant OC as much as that, But from what you can see is there anything else I can adjust to get better performance, My CPU is still pretty cool

    Question, Does your TurboEVO SAVE this setting when you restart or do you have to go in and set it everytime. I can not get the Turbo EVO save and restart with it clocked at all!

    I have essentially the same setup as you and that voltage is unnecessary, I got it down to 2.81v whilst maintaining stability.
