Help CPU Overclocking I7 3770K/GPU Overclock Tags: CPUs Overclocking GPUs Intel i7 Last response: March 1, 2013 1:53 PM in Overclocking Share MooreM February 28, 2013 2:42:07 PM Here is my computer that I just built http://pcpartpicker.com/b/Asx I had overclocked it at 44 multiplier and left the voltage offsets alone. Here it is at idle http://s22.postimage.org/foic29bep/idle.jpg Here it is with prime95 http://s18.postimage.org/vjspds015/prime95.jpg It ran good then blue screened so I move the offset +.015 Here it is at idle http://s1.postimage.org/ge94ciwr3/idle1.jpg Here it is with prime95 http://s22.postimage.org/dmmg1r2td/prime951.jpg The voltages are lower and it runs about 10C cooler in prime95. Is this better or worse then it was before? Do I need more voltage and should change it to - offset or is this ok? Also, I messed around with LLC and it wasn't very stable with voltage drooping so I leave it on auto. Also, the mghz stock was 103 and I changed that to 100. The ram I have is 2133 but was set one lower so I raised it back to stock As for my GPU setup, I have 2 Sli GTX 660's (non-ti). I also messed around with 3dmax11, turning vsync on/off and testing. This was my best run http://s17.postimage.org/rh69s0nfz/sli_gpu_non_oc.jpg The GPU's are not overclocked yet. Do I need to raise the Vram only or what direction do I take with overclocking and reducing any bottle necking? When I overclock the cards does it automatically do both of them? I haven't looking into overclocking gpus yet just build me computer. Any help would be great, thanks More about : cpu overclocking 3770k gpu overclock Rustyy117 a b à CPUs a c 125 K Overclocking March 1, 2013 10:26:05 AM Quote:Is this better or worse then it was before? If you really don't know the answer to this then you need to read some overclocking guides. I'd recommend using MSI afterburner for overclocking the GPU's, this program has an option to apply the overclock to both GPU's which I recommend you use. Your other questions should be easily answered in any good GPU overclocking guide. Have a look on google.

That's what I use for my GTX 660 Ti. I had two of them at one time and it automatically overclocks both of them. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
