    Hi Drecan

    Sure I'll give you a hand overclocking your cpu, before we begin I want to say the quality of your cpu and cooling will determine how far you can go. You have a good cooler so that's a good start.

    First you'll need a monitoring program and a stress testing program, would you have any installed ?

    If not I'll recommend HWinfo for hardware monitoring and ROG Realbench for stress testing.

    HWinfo - Click the green "Download Installer" in the middle.

    https://www.hwinfo.com/download.php

    ROG Realbench

    https://rog.asus.com/rog-pro/realbench-v2-leaderboard/

    If you have a hardware monitoring program and stress testing program already installed, list what you have.

    All right

    Open HWinfo and click the sensors tab.

    At the bottom left click the the blue arrow pointing to the left three times, Hwinfo should now show all hardware readings.

    Open Realbench and run the benchmark, when the benchmark has completed post us a screen shot of HWinfo.

    The readings in red are the current and maximum cpu core clock, cpu temp and cpu voltage, this is what we're paying attention to for now.

    Click the pic to make it bigger.

    Thank you

    We want to see the maximums for all readings.

    At auto it's drawing 1.296v with core 3 hitting 77c, that's not too bad.

    Before we overclock your cpu, I see your ram is up to speed at 3200MHz with CL14, nice !

    On the Extreme tweaker tab change these two voltages...

    CPU VCCIO voltage - enter in 1.15v
    CPU System Agent voltage - enter in 1.15v

    F10 and enter to save and exit.

    You can run the Realbench benchmark again to see it's stable, if it is we'll move on to overclocking your cpu.

    Post a screenshot with the maximums and confirm if you passed the benchmark after changing the two voltages.

    All right

    we can't see the maximum Vcore, here's a quick video to get all readings to show the maximums, you can have it show the averages if you like too.
