Hey guys, Got a brand new rig that I'm going to overclock, just wanted to ask the community what the safe stable will be, cause I honestly have no clue. Only other CPU i overclocked was a core duo 2, from 2.0 to 2.40.

Here are my specs:

CPU: Intel Core i5 3570K

Motherboard: ASRock Z77 Extreme4 Motherboard

Graphics: Gigabyte GeForce GTX 680 2GB Overclocked 1137MHz

Memory: Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3

PSU: Silverstone Strider Plus 600W

Cooler: CoolMaster Hypercooler 212 Evo

I'm looking for at least a 4.2 GHz OC, but if I can go further let me know.
My main concern is the PSU.

Cheers.

Your psu will be fine, along with your cpu cooler.

Go ahead man :)  Try not to go too high in volts btw.

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.

Is that just so it receives more power? Because it seems like quite a major increase.

To be honest, it doesnt make a difference. But the guide that i used said it should be increased. It is only used to give some headroom.

Ahh, kk.
Could you link me to the guide, seems like it'll be pretty useful. Could also use a bit more knowledge of the BIOS.
Thanks again!

So, what the Turbo Power and Turbo Current Limit does is... It keeps the processor from downclocking back to the core clock, when hitting the limits, for a longer time.
