Low Base Clock and High Multiplier Tags: CPUs Intel i5 Memory Overclocking Last response: February 13, 2013 7:00 PM in Overclocking Share UVB076 February 13, 2013 6:50:48 PM I have an Intel i5-3570K. Could I potentially set my base clock really low and then multiplier for my memory and CPU higher so that my minimum clock is slower. Would this work?
