Soo Just bought new cpu/mobo the other day as upgrade to the rest of my system, so my crossfire wasnt bottlenecked anymore. Obviously did fresh install of win7 on my ssd, kept the rest of my storage the same though, so pretty swiftly I was back to the computer I'm used to. Anyway, obviously dishing out that extra $70 on the k version, I'm interested in overclocking, but not really sure how to go about it this time. These are my specs: Processor: i7 3770K @ 3.5 - stock Motherboard: AsRock Z77 Extreme4 Cooling: Coolermaster 212+ with 2x fractal fans Memory: 12gb ddr3: 2x2gb g.skill 1333 ripjaws + 2x4gb g.skill 1333 nt Video Card: 2x VTX3d 2GB 6950 in Crossfire Hard Disk: 128gb kingston hyperx ssd+ ~ 7tb of varied storage Optical Drive: Dvd drive CRT/LCD Model: 24" BenQ G2420HD + 22" v7 Case: Fractal R3 PSU: OCZ zx1000 Software: Windows 7 x64 ------------------------------------ I'd previously oc'ed my i5 760 to a stable 4ghz with the cm212+, but that was with help from alot of guides/alot of other people that had done it before, and yes I've since cleaned the thermal paste off the heatsink (coffee filters/methylated spirits) So currently I'm running stock, idling about 30-35c, and stress testing prime95 at 70c after an hour ish. ------- -Wondering how far I should aim for, for a stable build that wont break my parts (ive got 1000w @ 80plus gold to play with too ) -No clue how to oc with this board/uefi/ the 1155/ivy bridge way of doing things.. -General tips from people with the same cooler/cpu/motherboard?
