Overclocking on Maximus hero
Hi, I have some problem with overclocking my i7-4770k running on maximus hero. I have gotten it running at 4.6ghz but i have to use 1.3 core voltage, that is probably too high. I have only adjusted the multiplier and core voltage, is there some more stuff i should adjust?

If the system is really stable at that speed and voltage that is lower voltage than most need for that speed.

There are many many folks who would love to have that voltage on that clock mate.

Hello. My Name's Jon. I just recently built my first rig two months ago so I'm very new at all this. I have a quick question about the Maximus vi hero and ai suite 3. I'm running a 4770k on this board and was wanting OC it. After going onto ai suite 3 and looking at the core speed I noticed it never go's down. Is there a setting to make the voltage and frequency lower at idle? or does it stay the same all the time. Just wanted to check before I OC. That way its not at 1.25 or 1.3 volts @ idle after I OC. Thanks for your time.

The OS is Windows 8.1. Thanks I'll give it a try.

Hey Praz. Thank you for the advice. It worked like a charm.

When making manual changes in the bios for over clocking; does the changes apply to the ai suite 3 program as well? I know this is true the other way around. Also... If I were to use the ai suite 3 to overclock the system, does the ai suite 3 change and tune the ram (Kingston HyperX Beast 16GB DDR3 2400) with the xmp profile automatically?

You would have to set the XMP profile in RAM, and AIsuite is only really for on the fly OCing. Please do your OC in bios.
