Overclocking a i5 3570k

#1XxTwisted26xXPosted 11/25/2013 10:33:02 PM
Hey guys, my friend just got me my first i5 3570k unlocked CPU! I was wondering how you would go about OCing it and what values you guys are using? From what I've read on Tomshardware it seems 4.5 is the average overclock? And do you simply change the ratio to 100 x 45 (on all cores) ?

Whats your motherboard. You have to ahve a motherboard that supports it. If yours does not support it then you can't overclock.

You need to do waaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy more research on overclocking. Google "Ivy Bridge overclocking guide" for starters.

Dang, I thought everyone said OCing was as easy now as just putting a double digit and then the bus speed with that number is multiplied by

^ Yes take the advice from grand master don gero as he was able to push his OC to a stable 4.8

Yes you can overclock on your mobo, and it is pretty much as easy as doing what you said OTHER than voltage adjustment.

It also takes patience and a lot of trial and error. Have fun

What is every else getting? I do have an after market cooler btw.

I set bus speed to 103.2 MHz and multiplier to 42. Getting 4326 core speed with temps of 40-50 degrees Celcius on 4 cores while playing Assassins Creed Black Flag

You need a stress testing program like OCCT
