Hi everyone,
I'm fairly new to overclocking, but I've done my research here and there. But I've got some questions..

First off, my part list

i7-3770k + corsair h60
asus p8z77-v pro
samsung 8gb 1600 - MV-3V4G3D/US
msi n670 pe
samsung 830 - 256gb
wd black - 1tb
corsair ax850 (**i know, dont need to lecture me on overkill psu**)

This is the guideline i followed:








so its @ 45x100 on 1.196V and the ram is clocked at 1800 11-11-11-24 1T @ 1.5V
Havent stress tested yet.
my temps are 30c-35c idle. on load 50c-60c (3 hours borderlands 2 + 4 hours adobe cs6)

My question is my voltage is steady @ 1.196v but my clock speed fluctuates from 16x100 (idle + small load) to 45x100 (max load) why is this happening and is this safe?
2nd question: are my settings safe?
3rd question: any room for improvement?

thanks in advanced for dealing with a nub.. :D

Disable the C states, like C6 and all that nonsense in order to keep a constant clock rate(Also intel speedstep)t. Your voltage is safe, heck i'd push it no further than 1.35v. You might still be able to get ~4.7 or 4.8 with that voltage, make sure your temps don't go over 90C lol.

By C states + C6 you mean the CPU CIE, C3 Report, and C6 Reports? From my knowledge, those control the amount of power the board gets once in sleep, correct?

As for the fluctuating multiplier, sometimes under load the cpu clocks down to 16x when I'm sure 45x is needed. Whats the reasoning behind this? I wish to have speedstep on because it just gives me a peace of mind that the cpu wont be cooking when not needed.

And another issue arose this past week. Once my pc sleeps, sometimes waking it up I get to the login page and it freezes. No keyboard + mouse controls. Very annoying.

Did u connect anything on usb3 ports?

Try to disable USB3/USB power management from device manager

If it's at 1.6 GHz, it doesn't need the boost. That's how SpeedStep works. If you aren't confident in it, disable it. That's all you can do.
