John, this it the best overclocking guide I know of. Ivy Bridge Overclocking Guide ? Asus Motherboards. Don't worry about the type of board they use. All Asus boards have the same basic overclocking options. Set your board the way they have their board set. You may want to save your current profile in case you want to go back to it. The guide will explain some of the terms in bios and what they do. They're are very few you need to change. Disregard their Dram frequency, voltage and the CPU vcore. You will have to use your own. Just set the timings and Dram voltage and frequency for your ram. You will want all the C states enabled if you set your Vcore to Manual. When you move to offset set the C states to C1 as enabled, C3, C6 and C states Package to disabled. It is very time consuming to set a high overclock, so just be able, but in the end, it will be worth it. Make sure you have Cpre Temp, CPUz and IBT, Prime95 or AIDA64 installed. Just remember when you run them, your core temp will go way up. That's normal. In normal usage you will never see even half those temps. Just try to keep your temps while stress resting to 95C or below. Set your Vcore to manual and set a vcore. I start at 1.250 and run prime for about 30 minutes at a multiplier of 4.5. If you pass, no workers shut down or no BSOD. You can either raise the multiplier or lower the vcore. Keep core temp and cpuz open during that test. Just keep playing with the Vcore and multiplier during those sessions until you find the lowest vcore you can run at the multiplier you want without going over 95. Don't worry, you'll get the hang of it. Post a screenshot of it while prime95 is running. post the screenshot of prime95, CPUz and Coretemp all in 1 screenshot. after setting the bios by that tutorial, set the vcore to manual, the vcore to 1.250 and the multiplier to 45. Save and exit. see if you can boot into windows and run the stress test for 30 minutes. If it runs well, post the screenshot of those 3 programs open. You'll get a lot of help about where to go after the screenshot as well as how to convert back to offset in your bios. If you have questions, just ask. But, always keep a close eye on temps while running the stress test. If they get too high, on Prime95, press file, and stop, yes to the window that will open and the test will stop.
Sorry late reply Steve have just had a huge batch of this thread replies come though I'll duck in and check out that link.
At the moment it is running 4.2 and the RAM 2400 and I really don't know what I am supposed to be looking for.
VID looks OK John, are you running an offset for the voltage? I expect you could run 4.5-4.6GHz at around 1.25V no problem, just need to set the offset right in the bios.

That's the guide I recommend to everybody John, and pretty much everyone has had great results using it. Let us know if you have any questions about it when you get the time to read through it.

So just a query I watched the first video and it says to use the balanced power settings. Now does this mean that my CPU does not have to work so hard at low usage say like I am doing right now?

I wouldn't change any power settings. The Intel Enhanced SpeedStep Technology feature, along with an offset CPU core voltage will allow your CPU to idle at 1600MHz at a much lower voltage, and "Turbo" up to your OC only when it needs to.

Yes, speedstep and offset is what you want, it should idle at 1600MHz @ less than 1V and power up to whatever you set it to under load, in my case 4.6GHz, the offset in the bios is to control the voltage for when it comes under load, it takes a little fine tuning but you should be able to find a sweet spot in not a lot of time.

John, I think the Balanced Power Settings are in the OS under power Plan. That's what they were talking about. You can also set it to balanced then go to advanced options and set it any way you want to. What everyone is mostly talking about here are the BIOS settings.

I thought he meant the preconfigured settings on the initial BIOS screen. There is a power saving/balanced/performance set of buttons that will automatically do stuff.

Yep Steve I got that bit I was just thinking that that was happening. I did that and set my minimum to I think it went to 5% and watching the video was impossible as it kept stalling. So I reset it to to high and well the videos are quite amazing and it is going to take me a long time to catch up as that fellow goes so fast but I did see a lot of really good things in the BIOS parts that were handy to know and how that test stuff was just amazing as in just the simple stuff like setting the amount of RAM.
Mind putting the old girl through those videos has bumped the core temps up a bit LOL!!

Thanks to all of you for the help it has thrown some light on the BIOS if nothing else!!

John I have my minimum Processor State set to 55% and it will still idle back to 1600. I think Intel Speed Step overrides the OS setting for that. Run CPUz minimized and it will show the CPU frequency in the taskbar.
