Ok i've never done this before but i'm wanting to do it.

I'm wanting to do the CPU and i've heard the RAM i have works great with it too so CPU and RAM.

Current setup:

CPU - i7 2700k 3.5 GHz
RAM - Corsair Dominator platinum 2x8gb DDR3
Mobo - Gigabyte GA-Z68XP-UD3P
Cooler - Corsair H80i
GPU - SLI GTX 570 (GTX 690 in a few weeks)
PSU - Corsair 850W

How should i go about this, and i know it's a lot to ask, but could i get a step by step guide if you don't mind? I'm happy to do the stuff myself but i need to know i'm doing it correctly, don't want to botch it up!

Thanks in advance!

I just changed the cpu clock ratio to 45 and cpu vcore to 1.3. Doing prime 95 atm and it's sitting at around 64-72 deegrees and doesn't seem to be going higher. I'll keep testing for a while to make sure but does that sound fine?

72c is the max safe limit, prime 95 will put 100% load on your cpu so you'll never see that temp in normal use so id say your fine
