Asus and 3770k OCing

what up guys, so i bought a Asus P8Z77-V Pro mobo and an i7-3770k CPU. i want to OC it to 4.2 after i get everything installed, however ive never OCed an intel before. only AMD. so how much of a difference is there between the 2? is it just uping the multi and then adding voltage? also, whats the max safe temp under prime 95 load?

You will probably be able to make 4.2 on stock volts.

You could have a look at : Undervolting and Overclocking on Ivy Bridge and also MultiCore Enhancement to make yourself an idea.

also i want the CPU to scale volts and speed after i test for stability. i know speed step is one of the options that controls that but what else? also idk if this board had advanced LLC options, but what shoud LLC be on? and what max safe prime 95 temp?

You might have to go in bios settings for advanced LLC options (i have it on), then monitor and fine tune with the Asus AI Suite II software (Digit+ Power Control, tab).

Know what your temperatures are and what's safe.
A cold cpu is a happy one. Monitor your CPU temperatures. We always take the hottest 'core' as your max core temp. Never the lowest.
in my opinion, as well as that of the HWmon software, and Intel specs, these are the ranges for sandybridge.
Green is perfectly safe. Yellow is a little warm but ok. Red is too hot. purple is dangerous. The cpu will throttle and prevent itself from dying from overheating, but you still must keep a good temperature.

0-70 Safe
70-80 Safe. Attempt to lower the temperature
80-90 Approaching unsafe levels
90-100 Dangerously hot

If your CPU ever gets into the 80s, IMO, it's getting too warm. It is ok to allow 80-82 for the 15 minutes IBT takes to run. As a general temperature for any period of time, however, it is overly high. The idea is to have a Sandybridge system which rarely if ever exceeds 70 in normal use. It shouldn't exceed 80 in normal use. If you EVER hit 90, stop whatever you're doing and let the cpu cool to idle IMMEDIATELY. You should not allow the CPU to exceed 85 IMO.

I always try to stay under 70 max (use, ie gaming, etc) temp when overclocked. Please note that your actual use temps (ie, playing a game) will be about 5 degrees less than prime95 and 10-15 degrees less than Intel Burn Test. For example, I get about 55-65 gaming, 70-75 in prime, and 80 in IBT.

What c- states do I want enabled and disabled? I know c1e caused some performance loss on my AMD rig so the only one I left on was c6. While my PC is on, I don't need any power saving but when I have it in sleep I do want power saving enabled.
