great guide, just got my i5 and thinking about overclocking it!
I have a SABERTOOTH Z77 whit a i7 2600K.
I want to now what i have to eneble and desable in my BIOS.
I put my BIOS on YOUTUBE for you can see what i deed, i just try to repete what i deed on my SABERTOOTH P67 to have a stable 4.0GHz and that dont work
I dont want 5.6GHz whit my CPU but just a stable 4.0 or 4.5GHz
MOBO.: SABERTOOTH Z77
CPU Cooler.: CORSAIR H80i
RAM.: 4XMUSHKIN 1600 REDLINE ENHANCED, 6-8-6-24 CL6
PSU.: CORSAIR HX750
VGA.: EVGA GTX 660ti OC(company) 3Go
Very informative thread, is it possible to like certain threads like they do on the social networks?
will definetly be reading this before i overclock, thanks
Nice post. Its really helpful to beginners.
nooby question seeks answer!
My rig has been clocked from 4 to 4.5ghz. Running a benchmark at 4ghz, I get decent scores. If I run the same benchmark, but at 4.5ghz I get a much lower score. The scenes seem to fly by so fast that the gc can't keep up.
I'm running a fx8350 - 8 core with a HD7970 ghz ed (slightly ocd) and 16gb kingston clocked at 2133.
Is this a case of the gc simply not being able to keep up?
came accross a similar problem here, so will tyry take some advice from it
any further advice greatly appreciated
Going to make the jump to Haswell soon - overclocking that seems to be about as different to 775 overclocks as it could possibly be - am I best relearning all I know from scratch? Been reading up on the net on various guides and it seems a damn site more complicated than it used to be! I'll be going for either a 4670k or 4770k.
Is Windows Re-Install Required?
The above is taken from the guide posted by Jokester.
So my question is, do you have to re-install Windows if overclocking your CPU?
Or is it one of those, sometimes you do, sometimes you don't and it's not until you try it that you find out?
Thanks & Regards
No you don't, but it's entirely possible to corrupt an existing Windows installation when overclocking, so make sure you have backed up anything important.
Jokester, thanks for the reply and information.
I know that I'm going to sound a complete idiot , but even after reading/understanding ( or trying to ) the different information thats contained on this thread.......It all seems a bit too complicated for me...I'm having trouble getting my head round it all together
And I dont want to OC using software I would want to do it via the BIOS as that seems to be the better or more reliable option ...and I dont even know if the Ram @1600 would be up for it anyway
This guide really helped on my first adventure into the vast world of overclocking! Thanks for putting all this great info together
How much overclocking can I do with Intels stock cooler?
thanks for this nice explanation
Nice guide! But has it been super-seeded? 8 years is a very long time in the computing world!
Anyone having issues running OCCT? With it open, it's causing my bus speed to fluctuate and jump around and stops when I close it :S
thanks for the guide, should be very useful in the near future
Love this. Handy for me, only ever overclocked by using XML profiles for ram setups. Will give this a go when the transfer of my system takes place
