Some overclocking problems

#12Dhas_a_MIGRANEPosted 9/7/2013 10:28:22 AM
I recently started trying to overclock my CPU. I have a 3570K, z77X D3H motherboard, and a Hyper 212 Plus cooler. Whenever I set the voltage manually and restart, my computer freezes at the boot screen and I have to clear the CMOS to get it to boot again. If I leave the voltage on auto it ramps up to 1.5V under stress for only an overclock of 4.3 GHz which causes the temps to go above 100C which I know isn't good for the CPU.

So what I'm wondering is, what am I doing wrong when setting the voltage that it isn't letting me boot m computer. I've seen people easily get to 4.3GHz with a voltage of only 1.2V with manageable temps, but I can't set the voltage manually at all without it freezing upon boot.

Bump. I'd post this in the Tech Support board but no one seems to post there.

Do you have your motherboard's latest bios? Have you tried using the voltage offset?

accept that you have a bad chip

I'm not sure for either of those. How do I check the version of my bios?

If you can't figure out how to find the bios version then maybe you should read a little bit more on overclocking.

From what I had already read it seemed easy. I followed exactly what it said but I can't even get boot. I get the post beep but then it just freezes. If it was just a bad overclock that would be one thing.
