Overclocking proccessor

#1XxTwisted26xXPosted 8/16/2013 11:47:13 PM
Hey guys, I see a lot of people overclocking their proccessor (this specific one) to 3.7 GHz. And I know this particular CPU is locked, but how are they still overclocking it? im still new to the PC gaming world. I was to raise the GHz a bit as I think my CPU is bottlenecking me pretty bad.


CPU: Intel Core i5-3350P Ivy Bridge 3.1GHz (3.3GHz Turbo) LGA 1155 69W Quad-Core Desktop Processor BX80637i53350P

Mobo: ASUS P8Z77-V LK LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS

GPU: SAPPHIRE 100351SR Radeon HD 7970 3GB 384-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card OC with Boost

you can raise the turbo boost up 4 bins or 400mhz on locked non "K" cpus like the i5 you have.

There's also a setting in Catalyst Control Center under Performance--->AMD OverDrive that shows:

High Performance GPU Clock settings 950 MHz

high Performance memory clock settings: 1425

Is there a reason you didn't get the 3570k? You bought a Z77 motherboard design for overclocking, but you got a processor not meant for that.

Ah sorry Im a noob at all this! Oh, but also if I wanted my memory to run at 1600 (I have 8 gigs of RAM) shouldnt the memory clock be 1600 or is that something else?

This was the first PC I built and I made it at the beginning of the summer. I had originally planned on making a budget gaming PC that can run most games on medium settings. But then I got addicted to newegg and its sales and got more items :P. I want to upgrade the CPU but school is starting up again and now Im broke </3
