    Hello there zaxaz and welcome to the ROG forum.


    What I'd like you to do is download ROG realbench, real temp 3.70 and cpu-z. Once you get these three programs installed post back here and we will begin overclocking your cpu.

    Post the speed of your ram for me too please.

    Thank you

    Before we do any overclocking I would like you to go into the bios and hit F5 to set defaults. Boot to windows and open up ROG realbench and real temp 3.70.

    Run the Realbench stress test for say 5 minutes and post the maximum temperature real temp is showing. Temperature controls how far you will be able to overclock your cpu. This will give us an idea of how far we can overclock. We don't want to see temps above 75c.

    Post your maximum temps please.

    OK, Let's see how well your seidon 120 can handle 1.25v. Your cpu core temps are good and are pretty equal, this is good.

    Go into the bios on the extreme tweaker tab and set the ai overclock tuner to manual. Sync all cores and set the cpu core ratio to 42 and set the cpu core voltage to 1.25v. F10 and Enter to save and exit.

    Open up realbench, real temp and cpu-z.

    Run the realbench stress test for 5 minutes again monitoring the temp with real temp and check cpu-z to see that the core voltage is 1.25v.

    Temp wll be higher now. Increasing the cpu core voltage will increase the temp. Post your maximum temperature again for me please.

    All right, 1.25v looks to be the maximum voltage for you.

    Now go back into the bios and set the cpu core ratio to 43, F10 and Enter.

    Run the realbench stress test again for 5 minutes to see if you are still stable.

    If you are stable after testing, go into the bios and set the cpu core ratio to 44 and test again. If 44 is unstable back it down to 43.

    Once we get your max overclock we will set your ram.

    The only way I've seen anyone hit 5.0GHz with a 4770k is by delidding, and you're not guaranteed to hit 5.0GHz even with custom cooling.

    All cpu's are not created equal the voltage will vary from a little to a lot to hit the same speed.

    So what is the outcome 4.3GHz or 4.4GHz?
