hello again guys.......
again i ended up with a new serious problem......
my specs are
1.i5 3570k
2.asrock z77 extreme4
3.2x4gb ddr3 corsair vengence
4.ati 6670 1gb ddr5
5.corsair gs600
6.cooler master hyper evo 212 cpu cooler

so i was going to overclocking my 3570k.......at 4.2ghz
i only change those settings to OC (at bios)
1.cpu ratio-all core
2.all core-42
3.power saving mode-disabled
4.cpu core voltage-offset mode
5.offset voltage-(-.065v)
6.cpu load line callibration-level 5

after that
when i start windows (win 8)
my graphics driver stopped working,frequently computer hanging and a lots of f*** BSODs but prime95 test passed (in 10 minutes test)
so
am i doing proper overclock ? or cpu needs extra offset volt?
please give a full simplified tutorial for how to oc my i5 3570k on my asrockz77 extreme4 at 4.2 to 4.4ghz.......and it'll be better if anyone give me a video tutorial or pics than text......
plzzzzzzzzzz help me guys i want to oc my i5 badly....

10 mins of prime95 is not enough. I would say you should add some more voltage but just a tiny bit. Also make sure you don't increase the BCLK because that causes instability beyond a certain value.

If your computer showing any errors during prime95?Like programs crashing,themes disapearing,etc?For 4.5ghz i am going with +0,040v offset so -0,065v
may be overdoing it.
Try intel burn test on standard,it will most definately crash programs and all

no my computer crashes after startup (amd catalyst driver crashes just after starup after oc,computer hangs while opening google chrome.....and a lots of BSODs frequently) not during prime 95.............
can you tell me what offset volt should i go with? for 4.2ghz and 4.5ghz....

I can tell you this.... I've ran prime95 and IBT for hours on it with no crashes. Then I go to play a regular game(borderlands 2) and my systems starts acting weird as hell with drivers crashing and BSOD's. No "stress test" will tell you everything is fine. You need to use your computer to discover this. Seems like you need a higher vcore voltage. I would definitely say up your voltage by 0.01 to start and keep upping it till you get stable or lower your multiplier. One of the two will stop this from happening unless it's something totally different.

With my 3570k at 4.7Ghz I have my voltage at 1.38v, for it to be completey stable. I can run IBT and Prime95 at 1.28v fine, but my games aren't stable. My voltage at 4.5Ghz needs to be 1.28v for it to be completely stable. I don't know what it needs to be at for 4.2Ghz but I would imagine you could probably stay with the stock voltage for 4.2Ghz. If I knew what it was I'd tell you, but I guess it should be around 1.12v. Somewhere in that ball park. But ALL chips are different. My chip only runs at 80c average with the 1.38volts I have going to it, with the Scythe Ninja 3 CPU air cooler and Antec 902 case, but your chip may run hotter.

as far as every chip being different...that is probably more true with this particular chip than almost any other chip there is right now....and also..your mobo could also have something to do with what voltage you require because the more droop and ripple you have (which is usually more on the lower end boards) the more compensation you're going to need...i myself have a pretty crap board (biostar Tz77A) and i have to set my vcore at 1.24 to get 4.4ghz stable on stress tests and also d3, wow, css, and adobe cs6. every guide i read says taht with decent boards (IE: asus ROG maximus V and similar) you can hit 4.5ghz with 1.25 easily...i cant even get 4.5 stable with 1.28v ... so there you go. bottom line is with you though, 99.9999% chance that your voltage is too low

right now i successfully overclocked my cpu at 4.2 ghz at 1.2v (fixed mode)
right now my goal is 4.5.............i tried with 1.28v but crashed...will try with more...
if anyone can suggest me the stable volt then feel free to post.........

As they said - noone can suggest anything. Each CPU is different. I have mine on 4,6 now and use only 1,24v. For 4,7 need 1,29. So as u can see - u can get lucky or not :)  Still no big difference for gaming between 4,2 and 4,5 or 4,7 on this monster :)

blazetro idk if this'll help you but, i could never get mine to work at 4.5 with anything less than like 1.32v until i turned c3/c6 states off turned off LLC and set it to "Offset mode" voltage and did +.02v added to a vcore of 1.21v and i get stable complete in games p95 and ibt on high stress so...try that maybe

and the way i did my OC was with speedstep ON fixed ratio OFF and manual turbo ratios set to 45 on all cores. that also made a big diff as opposed to just a straight fixed ratio of 45.

okay will try this and update my post after 24h p95 test..........

First of all if i were you i would start at 3.8GHz then start going up by 100MHz and diagnosing the issue, if it works fine we can tell A: Your cooler is malfunctioning B: Something is wrong with your mobo C: Other problem
PS: I fail at user name :p
