I would like to overclock my 3770k. I just want to know some steps doing it, want to go between 4.0 and 4.4 without damaging/reducing life badly of my system. Well in fact, I want to keep it a interesting but not a big overclock. I've got a not too bad computer case Antec nine hundred two.
I guess I will need to buy a new cpu cooler ?
I'd have 40-100$ CAN to invest in this.
Why do I want to overclock? Well for the of having even quicker computer and to load league of legends's game faster. About quickness it's already not that bad having a mushkin deluxe SSD drive 256go and 16GB ddr3@2133mhz with gtx 560.
After.. Could I have some quick instructions on how to do It safely ?
Oh, and sorry for my english. Thank you a lot !
first of all, not all chips will go to 4.5 they all have different tolerances, but you will need to download a program called cpuz and one called hw monitor and one called prime 95 http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/cpu-z.html
