Hi, I plan on overclocking my 3570K on the ASRock Z77 Extreme4 right out of the box after I get them. How fast could I go with the cooling options and power supply that I have selected? I apologize if any of the things I say sound strange - I'm new to overclocking and computer building in general.
- 2x 120mm Front (Intake, comes with case)
- 1x 120mm Rear (Exhaust, comes with case)
- 1x 120mm Side (comes with case)
- 1x 140mm Top (Exhaust, comes with case)
- 1x 140mm Bottom (Intake, aftermarket)
The PSU (Power Supply Unit) is not going to make an impact on your ability to overclock but with the board, case and HSF (heatsink/fan) that you have selected I would think you can reach around 4.3GHz (based on the voltage) before the temperatures started to spike and you would need much higher level of cooling.
With the Hyper 212 Evo most people can get to 4.5Ghz MAX. Some people can only get to 4.3-4.4. To go any higher your gonna have to spend at least 40 bucks on a decent air cooler like the Xigmatech Dark Knight II or the Scythe Ninja 3.
