As the title says I am trying to get my 3770k to 5ghz. With Gigabyte's EasyTune6 I can just click one button for 4.68ghz but I am hoping to get more from my cpu. I am new to overclocking but not computer building. I basically need help from someone with the same setup that could tell me the little tweaks I need to make in the bios in order to get to 5ghz. Any help is appreciated and I will try to respond right away.
The settings I have for the 4.68ghz are:
BCLK is at 104mhz
Multiplier is at 45
Voltage adjusts itself between 1.2v and 1.4v
My build involves:
G1. Sniper 3
gtx670ftw overclocked to 1.25ghz
vengeance ram 16gb 2 dims
nova 2 ssd boot
wd black data
wd velociraptor games
kraken x60 cooler
asus rog sound card
evga supernova750g psu
you cant do that unless you have liquid nitrogen. Ivy bridge chips run hot. hotter than sandy bridge cause they use thermal paste in b/w the chip and the metal heat-spreader. you can do 4.5ghz if you buy a noctua NH-D14 or a corsair H100i
Thanks for the replies. I want to try 5ghz because I see people are doing it and have a stable system. I do have a kraken x60 liquid cooler for my cpu. My idle temps at 4.68 are between 20-30deg C, and full load about 60-65deg C. Thanks
I have my PM's bookmarked so I check them regularly - when you do a little bit more research on how the basics work, send me a private message; I'd be more than happy to help. (I'm fairly talented at eking out the maximum a chip can get to.)
We all have our own reasons for why we do what we do, if you really want to reach 5.0ghz then you do it at your own risk, there's a lot of good information in this guide that will help you reach your goal.
Just make sure you read it through first to fully understand what it takes to accomplish it and where your cooling short comings will fall.
go ahead and push the vcore up a little at a time just watch temps should be able to reach 5 ghz IDLE 5ghz under load is too hot for ivy regardless of cooling!and still may not make it due to chip. To all the haters he wants to do it of course he knows he runs a risk and instead of a mill reply sying don't do it your crazy try to HELP just because none of you have any money or balls doesn't mean he doesn't. I say do it I myself have done it on both sandy and ivy with water wouldn't dream of keeping it there the diff between 4.8 and 5.0 is miniscule but always good for bragging rights providing you don't have any friends with nitrogen.
