Help the n00b, please

Recommended Posts

I've just completed my first home-built computer, with an i5-2500K on an Asus P8P67 Deluxe board and a Corsair H70 cooler. I have it running nice and cool at stock speeds, so next stop is overclocking.Before I begin messing with the settings in the BIOS, is anyone aware of a good guide that explains how to overclock this particular HW combination? It looks fairly straightforward, but a little preparation probably won't hurt.Any help would be much appreciated,Tom

For me, one of the best articles explaining and teaching a lot:http://www.overclock.net/intel-general/910467-ultimate-sandy-bridge-oc-guide-p67a.html

Thanks for your help with this. I have it stable now (running Prime95 for a couple of hours) at 4.5GHz, 1.295V vcore, and temps maxing out around 55C.I'll leave it there for a couple of days, then I'll see if I can push it a few hundred MHz higher without going nuts with the voltages.
