Hello pdastrly, I can help you overclock your cpu but before we get started could you list your cpu cooler please?

Ok great, overclocking your cpu is easy. Temperature controls how far you will be able to overclock. Do you have real temp 3.70, GPU-Z and prime95 installed by chance?

gpu-z, aida64. I can install the other ones now

Ok please do that and I meant CPU-Z not GPU-Z. When you get those installed post back and we can begin overclocking your cpu.

Wow that was fast.

OK, go into your bios hit F5 to set defaults, go to extreme tweaker tab and set the ai overclock tuner to manual, sync all cores and set the cpu core ratio to 42, then set the cpu core voltage to 1.25v. F10 and enter. Do this and return.

you are on the ball.

Open up real temp, cpu-z and prime 95. Run the small FFT test in prime95 for 3 minutes monitoring the temp with real temp. If the temp goes over 90c stop the test immediately. Monitor cpu-z to see that the voltage is 1.25v. Post your maximum temps please.
