3 Step Overclocking Guide – Sandy Bridge (Miahallen)

April 22, 2013 in CPU, Intel, Overclocking, PC


Many users are searching around the net these days looking for advice on how to overclock their new systems, but aren’t sure where to start. To help everyone out, I decided a how-to guide was in order. Searching around forums can be confusing and intimidating. There are so many people willing to give advice, but who can you trust? It’s hard to know, and I have seen many users sent on wild goose chases because they follow advice that doesn’t solve or even address their specific problem. I have also seen too much trial and error overclocking, and unless you get lucky, it tends to be far too time consuming and frustrating. What I have attempted to do is create a very simple three step guide for overclocking Sandy Bridge based CPUs. If you want to continue searching out other opinions, please consider each suggestion with caution. Some will undoubtedly be great, while some will not.

***Note*** We are still planning to create a BIOS terminology cross-reference chart (like in the other guides), but I need your help! Thanks, and happy overclocking! ***
