Overclocking the 3770k - Heelp Tags: CPUs Overclocking Gigabyte Last response: May 31, 2012 6:46 AM in CPUs Share jediarron May 30, 2012 1:24:20 AM How would I go about doing this? I've never over clocked before and I built my PC myself What voltage would I need and what is the max I can do without it overheating to the extent of it being bad over a long period of time. I don't want that My specs: i7 3770k Gigabyte 2GB GTX 670 RAM 8GB (2x4GB) Corsair Vengeance LP WD 1TB 7200RPM HDD Noctua NH-D14 Double Air Cooling Fan Gigabyte GA-Z77-D3H Motherboard More about : overclocking 3770k heelp erunion May 30, 2012 1:32:20 AM Get yourself CPU-Z and Prime95 http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/cpu-z.html http://files.extremeoverclocking.com/file.php?f=205 Here is (almost) everything you need to know. http://www.clunk.org.uk/forums/overclocking/39184-p67-s... abekl a b à CPUs a b K Overclocking May 30, 2012 1:34:20 AM All you need to do to get a 4.0 or 4.1 GHz overclock is adjust the CPU multiplier to 40 or 41.

Ask ! Get the answer erunion May 30, 2012 1:36:28 AM Intel's auto voltage will give you more voltage than is needed so your two options are: manual voltage, or offset voltage with LCC. Best to find a good voltage by setting manually, then try to hit that target with offset. The advantage of offset is your voltage can drop when your cpu idles. erunion May 30, 2012 1:39:11 AM abekl said:All you need to do to get a 4.0 or 4.1 GHz overclock is adjust the CPU multiplier to 40 or 41. No voltage changes required. Sure, and it will go a lot higher than that. But it won't be at stock voltage, auto voltage will increase voltage beyond what is needed. jediarron May 30, 2012 1:45:58 AM Guys, how am I doing this - through the BIOS? Are there any certain values? Also what temperature could I expect to see my CPU at, when playing BF3 in ULTRA when my 3770k is OC'd to 4.5GHz? erunion May 30, 2012 1:53:11 AM jediarron said:Guys, how am I doing this - through the BIOS? Yes jediarron said:Are there any certain values? Yes, but I don't know them. I have a 2500k. Time to google. Oh, get the program Core Temp, too. jediarron May 31, 2012 4:00:44 AM erunion said:Yes Yes, but I don't know them. I have a 2500k. Time to google. Oh, get the program Core Temp, too. I downloaded it *scratches head* What would be my next course of action? erunion May 31, 2012 6:46:12 AM That program, and the other two I listed earlier are for monitoring/testing. The link I included explains the basics of overclocking, the voltages for your specific cpu you will have to either trial and error or find online.
