There are many guides online that will show you how to overclock Ivy Bridge processors. It also depends on your motherboard or software you use to overclock. I can verify that the 3570K will run perfectly fine at 4.2Ghz without much modification to other settings. My mobo came with an overclocking utility though, and all I really needed to do was change the offset voltage to .004 (I believe?) and raise the multiplier up to 42.

Exactly because before when reading off a Guide before it Broke all my stuff everything went badd & I spent over $600 bucks now its gone & now I have Spent another Over $700 bucks & Wanna OverClock my Cpu but Need Help from someone that can Help me :/ ......... I'm a Gamer & Wanna see Really Great Performance here on this Chip!!! Why I bought it & stuff & it can go More then 4.2ghz lol I have Great Cooling in my system total 9fans all around & temps are between 20 & full load 35...

If you keep your voltage below 1.35v and your temps under 70c you will not hurt your equipment, unless you start messing with variables beyond your CPU multiplier and vcore. (you could go higher on vcore and temp, but I'm leaving you a safety cushion)

It's up to you to verify that your voltage is set correctly and your temps stay under control.

You have to run multiple stress tests while monitoring voltage and temperatures.

You have to watch for little voltage spikes between full load and no load.

You have to continually verify your temps while load testing with more than one program because some programs read low with some equipment. Find two programs that agree on temps.

Oh ya ok so all I have to change is the Cpu Ratio & mess around with the Vcore?? that what I change for the Voltage for Cpu?? & DO I have to do anything with the Ram?? Its already set at what the timing & all that stuff is suppose to be 1333 but showing 1375 must of Overclock some how :) ... & If that all I have to do is change the Cpu Ratio like when I bump it up like from 3.8ghz to 3.9ghz are you suppose to do it by 1 point everytime going up?? & if it Crashes set the Volts up one on the Vcore or something else for the Cpu???

It's important that you understand conceptually what you want to adjust, because different BIOS have slightly different names for the variables in question.

For instance, I can't remember if my motherboard calls it "CPU multiplier" or "turbo multiplier" But I knew not to mess with the variable called "BCLK" (Base clock)

If your RAM is running at 1375, it sounds like your base clock may be off by a little. ( The base clock influences just about all other variables in your system) It should be 100.

You only need to increase Vcore if you get unstable. In fact, I recommend attempting to lower your vcore once you hit your target frequency just to ensure you are not applying extra voltage that you don't need.

You will eventually get to a point where you lower the vcore and your system goes unstable or doesn't even boot. If it won't boot, you need to clear the CMOS to reset back to factory settings and then go back into the BIOS and redo your overclock with slightly higher vcore than what caused your system not to boot.

If you go in small increments, you should get "mild" instability and adjust your voltage back up long before you get a failure to boot. (Blue screen of death is the most common indicator)

1 update your bios
2 set multiplier to 44
3. raise vcore to 1.22 starting up to 1.3v
3 alway testing with linx or prime
4 watch temps keep them below 80 on load

you will need a better cooler than a hyper evo for higher clocks tempts start to rocket after 1.35V

"CPU clock ratio" is what it's called on your board.

You may have to adjust your "Turbo Power Limit" also. I think my overclocked 2600k pulls 115w at full load, and the stock limit for your chip is 77w. You probably won't need as much power with your ivy bridge chip, but if your chip starts downclocking under load with good temps, it's probably this feature kicking in.

Your vcore will increase automatically of all you do is change the multiplier. Move in small steps and see how the motherboard increases voltage. I have found that many motherboards increase voltage more than is needed. I have ended up using a negative offset with all but one of my overclocks.

Probably in the "vcore voltage response" section of your motherboard, but I can't seem to find what options become available when you go there...

Oh ya redeemer? So do I put the 44 on the Cpu Clock Ratio First or do I go up one at a time where its 3.8ghz to 3.9 & all that?? & bump up the Volts to 1.22 & if it Crash keep Raising the Volts to under 1.3v till I find it Stable?? How long do I have to do Test for & stuff??

That depends on what kind of overclock you are going for. If you want to run full speed 24/7, just set your voltage to "manual" and then type in the voltage you want to use. (as well as you multiplier)

A dynamic overclock, that idles at low clock speeds and voltages, will require "offset voltage"

Test for at least 30 minutes with a good load test and watch temps and voltage.

& on My Ram its a DDR3 1333 and it shows 1345mhz idk if that is suppose to be like that?? I change it all back to Auto & it saying 9 timing & stuff when its 7-7-7-21
& I also dont understand how windows rated it 7.9 now its 5.9 showing Blue low Performance :/

The motherboard increases voltage automatically when you increase speed.

What's your voltage now under load?

& The Cpu voltage is Stock settings right now havent touched it yet when I look at the
3D Bios its on Auto it shows 1.200v or something but that auto!! Do you think I can go any Higher on my Overclock?? if so do I just bump the 1ghz up at a time? & see if its stable on that voltage on not?

"Stock" voltage changes as frequency changes.

Now that you have increased your frequency, you need to check your actual voltage under full load.

If you leave you voltage "stock" and overclock too far, you WILL reach a point at which your chip is getting too much voltage.

If you are not careful, it will die an untimely death just as your last overclocked chip.

2hrs is a decent amount of time to test basic stability and temps...

But YOU NEED TO CHECK YOUR VOLTAGE. (with CPU-Z, under full load, at full speed)

I'm not trying to be harsh. I just don't want you to break your stuff.

Checking the actual voltage under load is important.

Ok I found some screen shots I had had last Night when I did my Oc it says here

on Core Voltage Stock is at 1.068v is that good?? its set on auto & I came across someone else ad & saw this Should I do what this guy said??


Your PSU is just Great. (as stated by chris) Since you've got a EVO 212 don't push the voltage too high. High Voltage = High Temps. Stick to Stock Voltage if need be.

You can easily get 4.3Ghz at stock voltage and hit max 65'C at load with a EVO 212.
At least my 3570K made it to 4.3Ghz at 1.15V, I hope yours does too..

All you have to do is change Core voltage from Auto to Normal and set Dynamic Voltage to Auto. And then you can change the Turbo Frequency to the Multiplier that you wish to target: 4.3Ghz and below should give you 1.15V max... (if you go up to 4.4Ghz, the voltage will increase to 1.23V though).

So as long as you target 4.3 and below, you'll get a power-efficient but strong overclock.

Update: Also, You must change the Turbo Power Limit (77W) and the Turbo Current Limit (112Amps) -- Both to 250.


Update: You must change the default values of Power Limit (77W) and the Current Limit (112Amps) to 250, each.

1.200v under full load is fine.

Did you get the voltage from CPU-Z while you were running a load test?

You said " core voltage I look into my mobo"...I don't know what that means.

The motherboard doesn't concern me for this particular reading. I care about what your core voltage is when your chip is under full load. (As displayed by CPU-Z or similar program)

If you are looking at numbers in your BIOS, your CPU isn't under load when you are in the BIOS.

Core voltage on CPU-Z is the voltage we are talking about.

IF you are seeing 1.2v under FULL LOAD in CPU-Z, your voltage is fine.

Windows gets overclocked frequencies wrong all the time. If cpu-z and core temp say it's 4.2, it's 4.2.

I would expect it to be CPU ratio. (That's what it is on my ASUS board.)

Don't change a bunch of variables at once.

Too many variables can make a mess of things.


Change your CPU ratio. Leave everything else alone. (for now) Check your temps and your voltage under full load.

If that doesn't give you the desired results, put the CPU ratio back to stock and try the turbo multiplier....then test.

One thing at a time.....then test.

You need to take the time to read what settings you can change, and what settings you cannot. Even if you only read a guide for this reason it is worth the time. If you are not willing to be patient enough you will not likely get a decent OC anyway. You can sit there tweaking things and stress testing for hours without even increasing performance.

Main thing i used on my MSI z77a-g45 board to OC my i5-3570k were:

Vcore voltage, I/O voltage, and the multiplier.

Just figure out the safe range of voltages for these and learn how to reset your cmos and you should be fine. Make small changes on the multipliers like 40 to 41(find stable) then 41 to 42(find stable). when you are not stable increase the Vcore by .005 or .010 and see if you become more stable.

Also it is very important you learn the "Default" voltages for your components so you know a safe place to start.

ok bud sorry took me so long to reply been dealing with the hurricane sandy :/  power lost & stuff!!! But ya man I got into trying to OverClock it today & I was at 4.2ghz on Stock Voltage & when I went to 4.4ghz or 4.5ghz & bumb the voltage to 1.225v & it was Crashing first time it was saying the ghz was 3.8ghz when I had it on 4.5ghz idk what was going on!!! I reset my Bios & put it back on 4.2ghz & stuff & added another Good Fan on heatsink & I passed Stress test 2hrs of testing & my Highest temp I got was

core 0 64c min 26 max 68c
core 1 64c min 29 max 68c
core 2 63c min 28 max 69c
core 3 63c min 32 max 69c

Maybe you should have bothered to learn how to overclock then... any hardcore OC site you go to will laugh if you tell them to give you a complete OC setup. Part of achieving a good OC is understanding what your doing and tailoring it to your specific hardware, as well as doing it yourself. *snarky comment here deleted although justified, feeling merciful*
