3570k oc to 4.4GHz

I'm new to overclocking and I'm a bit confused about the voltages and multipliers. I have a 3570k and a noctua nh d14 and I want to overclock it to atleast 4.4GHz. I have an AsRock z77 extreme4. Can somebody help me with this? Thanks for answering in advance :)

  1. Learning is the KEY to overclocking. Study your board, bios, and even stock voltages/temperatures.

    I want you to google every single option you have in the BIOS overclocking settings. This way, you'll know what you are doing before you do it. I can't stress how important it is to LEARN about overclocking rather than just having someone tell you what settings to go to. I am not being mean, just for your own benefit. Learn about that board/CPU and know what you're doing before you start clocking anything higher than stock.

    I can't access the bios; the screen goes to the windows logo before I can read which key goes to the bios.
  3. When you first boot, 95% of motherboards will go into the BIOS with the "Delete" key. Just remember, learn about the settings before you ever adjust them. That way you know what they do and you know if they'll fry your CPU if you adjust them.

    I've got an AsRock mobo. Can I use the AXTU right?
  5. You could, but there's not much for options there. Do like I said and get into the BIOS and learn about the settings before you start overclocking. You'll be glad you did trust me.

    The short answer is changing the multipliers to 44 and leaving the BCLK at 100.

    But there's more to it than that, because if you leave voltages at stock, it'll probably BSOD, and if you push them too high it'll fry your CPU.

    I agree with steddora - read up on stuff.

    That's a guide to overclocking Ivy Bridge CPU's, which explains a bit more of the jargon, and limits.

    Happy reading.
