Recommended Posts

I overlocked my cpu to 4.2 on 1.1V and i only changed the cpu core clock and the cpu core voltage, should i have changed other settings? or just these two? my temps while running prime 95 are 65-75C

asus p8 z77 v pro

i5 3570k

65-75 what? Celsius? Fahrenheit? Kelvin?

its super easy just put 4 clocks on it and you'll get a 4Ghz overclock

i put 4.2 is thats what your talking about, is 1.1 a good voltage for 4.2?

It's pretty obvious that it's celsius :D Anyway, ivy-bridge will be totally fine with 1,2 or even 1,3 volts. (more volts means basically more heat output and stability)

4,2GHz seems very good for 1,1 volts. I'm not experienced with ivy-brige overclocking, but you might wanna try 1,2 volts and 4,3 or 4,4GHz.

 

You also might want to try increasing cache multiplier. It will propably do 4,0 or 4,1GHz nicely, but when ovecklocking the cores higher

than that, leaving the cache multiplier to 4,2 or 4,1 might improve stability. Watching some oc'ing tutorials on youtube the helped me with my oc.

 

If I said something incorrect, please correct me. And good luck with you oc, it's ain't easy to brake that CPU (needs somehing like 1,5 volts), so you can experiment with it pretty safely :)

i have no idea what the cache multiplier is O.o i'll look into it i guess

i'll have another look, also i'm finnish too :D

 

 

Alright :D but u somehow live in Canada :P But since you speak Finnish (I'm assuming) I could give you some help via skype if you need. Just pm me your skype, or ask me to pm you mine.
