Overclocking 7700K - Where to begin?
So I built this system and want to do a general use basic overclock, I have extensive computer experience but have never overclocked before
CPU: Intel Core i7 7700K
Motherboard: ASUS Strix Z270E
RAM: 16GB G. Skill Trident Z 3000MHz (8GBx2)
Cooler: Corsair H100iv2
GPU: EVGA GTX1080 SC
SSD: Samsung 960Evo Pro m.2 500GB
HDD: Seagate Barracuda Pro 6TB
PSU: EVGA G3 Supernova 650W
Case: NZXT S340 Elite
I used the Asus EZ tuner which gives me these values in ROG CPU-Z:
I'm just having a feeling the voltage on that is a bit too high. I ran AIDA64 for an hour (Stress mode) and my average temps were 67-70 C although I saw max temps of around 81-82 C on some cores. My CPU idles at 35 C with that overclock.
Can anyone help please?
