Tutorial request: How to overclock with the MSI Control Center

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi, so I have the MSI Z77A-G43, Socket-1155. But right now i have the i5 sandy bridge 2300. So I know that I cannot overclock just yet but Im going to buy the IVY bridge i5 3570k and then overclock with the MSI programs. I don't want to do it myself in the bios/uefi and risk crashes and shit that Im not sure of how to handle. But I guess these programs calculates a safe number that it handles to overclock and im fine with it not being at it's absolute maximum. And yes I do have a watercooler and all, but what I would like some help with is if I should modify anything in the bios/uefi to make it more stable and where and how to overclock in the MSI programs.

Hi there,


All the program will do is help you achieve around a 0.1-0.2 overclock. Tiny Tom Logan over on the To Live customs channel did a very nice guide not too long ago that does go into the BIOS and he explains everything very well. I'm not sure if you have ever seen his videos but I hope you have a cup of tea on standby they are long...... :P  


Hope that helps.
