Overclocking Ivy Bridge

Recommended Posts

I am planning to build a new Ivy Bridge computer, I7 3770.

 

Are there any simple instructions anyone can give me to overclock it?

 

Does it need cooling?

 

All I want is to build it and overclock it. I don't want to play with different settings.

 

I have never overclocked before and am only considering it if is economical.

 

Thank you if you give of your time to help me. It is appreciated.

Hey Daniel,

 

When you get your chip I would suggest checking out some of the more popular overclocking stes like:

http://www.overclock.net/

http://www.overclockers.com/

 

That what I did when I was OC my Sandy Bridge. Usually, you can find a good step-by-step tutorial, even with screenshots. First time I did it I was able to take my chip up to 5GHz. And yes, you will need 3rd party cooling either going with air or water. I went with Noctua NH-D14 air cooling for my rigs.

The Asus boards (maybe others) have a simple OC function in the bios,

or a button on the MB, or even via software.

 

It may not give the highest possible result but it is as simple as pushing a button.

 

What ever method you decide on it's pretty much a must to get a upgraded CPU cooler .


Processor: Intel Core i7 2700K@4.8GHZ

Graphics Card: Gigabyte GTX670 OC

RAM: Corsair Vengeance 8GB DDR3-1866 [9-9-9-24-2T]

Motherboard: Asus P8Z68 Pro / Gen 3

Best Ever FSX Tip: Adaptive Vertical Sync 1/2 Refresh Rate

Before overclocking be SURE to get a very good cooler. Something like the Noctua NH-D14 or the Corsair H100 would be great.

 

Also, I see in your original post that you said you want the '3770'. - This chip has a locked multiplier and your overclock headroom will be vastly dampened. I would strongly recommend that you buy one of the 'K' series chips.

Yeah, and have your temps skyrocket to +90C in an instant!

 

Please don´t use that Asus software, ot others EVER!

 

Overclock is easy, when you take it easy, and read the guides, good luck.

 

BTW why not get the i7 2700K instead?

 

:Peace:

Isn't the Ivy Bridge supposed to be great?

 

It is great. Good cooling is always a sensible idea whether you want to overclock or not and there is plenty to choose from, the Noctua being one of them. Do test the waters before overclocking though - you may not even find it necessary to do it at all, it depends what else you do with your computer. Just because you can overclock, doesn't mean you have to!

If OC'ed to 4.5GHZ with 2133CL9 RAM, and PCIe3 GPU, then yes, Ivy Bridge is a fast as a SB system at 5GHZ. = Great

Nah, it's just like a SB at 4.7GHz... with the same 2133CL9 RAM

Let´s have a song:

 

"Shine on, you crazy diamond"!

 

 

Remember when you were young, you shone like the sun.

Shine on you crazy diamond.

Now there's a look in your eyes, like black holes in the sky.

Shine on you crazy diamond.

You were caught on the crossfire of childhood and stardom,

blown on the steel breeze.

Come on you target for faraway laughter,

come on you stranger, you legend, you martyr, and shine!

You reached for the secret too soon, you cried for the moon.

Shine on you crazy diamond.

Threatened by shadows at night, and exposed in the light.

Shine on you crazy diamond.

Well you wore out your welcome with random precision,

rode on the steel breeze.

Come on you raver, you seer of visions,

come on you painter, you piper, you prisoner, and shine!

 

 

 

Yep, I´ve lost it, like Syd Barrett...

 

Why, oh why call IB an upgrade for FSX?

 

It´s SNTS

Thanks.

 

I'll keep that in mind.
