Looking for suggestions

Trying to figure out what settings to use to further OC my cpu from its current settings, below is general info.

I am currently OCing my 3770k to 4.7 VIA Autotune 6, at these settings I game at 45-60c pending on the game and when stress testing at 100% load I get 70c with peaks of 75c.

The settins I currently use run at its maxed Automated setting of 4.7, I can adjust them manually if I want to push it further but do not know what to adjust. Ideally I really want to know how far I can safely push it to get the most out of CPU, even if it was a move to 5.0, frankly my set up seems to be able to handedly allow a bit more Over clocking than what I currently run and would like to get a bit more out of my equipment.

My mobo is GA-z77x-UD5H, I7 3770k cpu, CM storm trooper gaming case, w/ HC80 water cooling unit.

Any general programs I could use to auto set it like I currently do w/ Autotune 6? anyone else have similar set up and suggestions? New to over clocking and appreciate all info. Thanks

  1. Using software to overclock is generally not the best way to overclock as it tends to use high voltage to force stability, if you seriously want to test how far you can push the cpu then use bios settings read the guides for overclocking intel http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/forum/265056-11-2600k-2500k-overclocking-guide (its same for ivy bridge) and check out the intel overclocking club thread http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/forum/277215-11-intel-overclocking-club for info on stable settings, its more effort than autotune but more fun and worth it in the long run
