This weekend marks the start of a long benching season where overclockers around the world are flocking to their nearest retailer and buying lots of Intel 3770K CPUs and Z77 boards to go with them. I know among my friends (www.teamau.net), there was at least 15 CPUs purchased. Chips are getting frozen as we speak! Some CPUs are bad and some are decent, everyone is looking for that golden chip!
I took some time last week to compile a few video diaries (best way to describe this video) and pass on some of the knowledge I’ve acquired over the past few months of testing Z77 platform with Ivy Bridge CPUs. I hope this video will have something for the beginners and experienced guys and perhaps answer some questions about “walls” you may experience this weekend (hopefully not but overclocking is 50% trouble shooting particularly at the start of new gen hardware right!).
Without further ado, here is my overclocking guide video featuring GIGABYTE Z77X-UD5H and Intel 3770K Ivy Bridge CPU. Be warned, this video is 1h 20+minutes long, popcorn shouldn't be far away!
