Hi,

I've been planning on overclocking for a while now, but it seems that I can't go up any higher then 3.8 GHz in my motherboard. I have a feeling that turbo boost is holding me back so I would like to have it disabled. If not, then please tell me why I cannot go up any higher then that. Here are my specs:

CPU: Intel i5 3570k
Motherboard: AsRock H77 Pro4-M
GPU: GTX 570
PSU: OCZ 600 Watt

Let me know if I missed anything, and please try and help me out!

Thanks!

H77 is not for overclocking and is holding you back since it does not allow for using the multiplier like a Z77 board will.

You have a h77 mobo it's normal that you can only get 3.8 ghz with turbo boost cause you can't overclock with that board.
You should have bought a z77 for that.


Z77 :

• Processor frequency adjustment
• Processor voltage adjustment
• Memory clock adjustments
• Memory voltage adjustments


H77 :

• Processor Maximum Non-Turbo Ratio (processor multiplier can only be adjusted down)
• Memory multiplier adjustment
• Memory voltage adjustment
• Graphics multiplier adjustment

You still can overclock can you? I've seen a video that overclocks my CPU with my Mobo.

Yes since then you can overclock using the unlocked multiplier on your "K" CPU.

Well that's just great, I got a K CPU and can't even overclock past 3.8 GHz... Is 3.8 GHz even good?
