Overclocked (i5 3570K) to 4.0ghz (@ x40 multiplier) on a Gigabyte (GA-Z77X-UD3H) mobo.
Loading temps are currently under 50C (i haven't stressed the processor out with stability softwares yet.) Idle is temps are 29C, voltage is from 0.975 to 1.1v
Literally all I did was manually raise the [CPU ratio #] from "34" ~ 3.4ghz to "40" ~ 4.0ghz on the frequency page of the bios. I then went into advanced CPU mode, and had to manually change each core (4 of them) to "40," as well.
I then set internal ppl overvoltage to auto, I set the memory mulitplier to "21.33" ~ 2133 mhz I turned off XMP multplier, enabled intel turbo, set my motherboard to EXTREME, set memory to "Quick." I haven't touched anything else after that.
Everything seems stable, so did I miss any crucial steps in my overclocking? Seemed almost too easy...im afraid i missed something.
