Help With 3570K Overclocking on ASRock Z77 Extreme4 Motherboard

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.

CPU: i5-3570K

Motherboard: ASRock Z77 Extreme4


CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus

Thermal Paste: Arctic Silver Arctic Alumina

Fans Shipped w/Rosewill BLACKHAWK ATX Mid Tower


Cooler Master 1000rpm 60.9 CFM Case Fan

- 1x 120mm Side (comes with case)
- 1x 140mm Top (Exhaust, comes with case)

  1. 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.
  2. I reached 4.3 with just a multiplier change on my 3750K , but I'm cooling with a Noctua NH-D14.I also have 5 case fans installed and 2 on the Noctua.\4.5ghz.\1.23 volts\mid to high 70's at max stress.
  3. 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.
