Re: New pc build with i7 3770K

The only problem with those 'painless' Asus OC BIOS profiles is that they are all based on upping the base clock, which overclocks everything; it is actually Turbo Mode OC and they are not guaranteed to work or be stable as a result.  I ended up doing manual overclock (bypassing Turbo mode completely) using just the multiplier, XMP and By All Cores with my 3930K and overclocking to 4.5GHz using only a few basic BIOS parameters - very easy. I suspect it may be the same with 3770K chip and BIOS you are considering.

Regards,
Mike
