Closed Over clocking Tags: CPUs Antec Last response: December 19, 2012 11:49 AM in CPUs Share epic_errors December 8, 2012 9:37:07 PM I currently have: Antec 900 case Antec H100 water cooling asus z77 motherboard Intel i7 3770k ivy bridge 24gb corsair ram Nvidia gtx 680sc thermatek 850w power supply I wanted to try over clocking my cpu but a little foggy on where to start. Any help would be highly appreciated. I'm currently running at 3.5 in normal or 3.6 in turbo mode.

LOL Here is a guide that will help : http://www.thinkcomputers.org/intel-ivy-bridge-overcloc... Work through it and then ask a question or 2. epic_errors December 8, 2012 9:58:00 PM sorry, not corsair but antec. Antec Kuhler H2O 920 Liquid CPU Cooler System I posted the wrong one I bought.

Ok keep in mind Ivy bridge hates voltage... If Offset mode voltages seem confusing, set it to fixed mode... epic_errors December 8, 2012 10:18:51 PM I'll still be able to over clock it to 4-4.2 from 3.5 in fixed mode? Novuake a c 131 à CPUs December 8, 2012 10:23:26 PM Yes, just make sure to test properly with Prime95 in between bumps in voltage and multiplier. Start with a fixed 0.900v at stock multiplier. Then increase multiplier, testing with prime95 for atleast half an hour while keeping in eye on temps... As soon as you get an error or are unable to get into windows, increase the voltage by 0.050v... Continue the process... epic_errors December 8, 2012 10:42:20 PM Do I just increase the multiplier by .1=1/10mhz or should I increase in bigger quantities? Novuake a c 131 à CPUs December 8, 2012 10:45:05 PM Wait a minute. CPU core multiplier? Stay away from BCLK... For example : Stock is x35, bumping it to x36 would add 100Mhz... epic_errors December 8, 2012 11:17:59 PM O alright. I think I understand now. Since I'm 3.5 right now my multiplier is 35. So just gradually increase like 36, then 37 and so on till the computer turns off and then go back and bump up the voltage by 1 selection until it becomes stable? Novuake a c 131 à CPUs December 8, 2012 11:25:00 PM Correct, but run halfhour prime95 between each step while keeping an eye on temperature with realtemp. But you can skip to 4.2GHz(x4.2) on 1.2v voltages, start there. epic_errors December 8, 2012 11:42:42 PM If i'm understanding correctly I assume you mean (x42 and not 4.2) Thank you very much for the help. I appreciate it epic_errors December 8, 2012 11:49:45 PM and my max temperature would be 90c like the article said?
