Turbo Boost, BCLK, QPI: Exploring Intel's Core i7, i5, i3 CPUs

This article will get you up to speed on the basic's of Intel's new Core i7, i5, and i3 architecture, so you'll be able to more effectively overclock it. We'll go over all of the new frequencies (such as BCLK and QPI), multipliers, and how turbo boost can dynamically increase your speed based on demand.

Tightening Your Memory (RAM) Timings

So, you've found your maximum memory frequency, but is your ram performing at its best? If you haven't tightened your memory timings yet, they are probably higher (looser) than they need to be. These timings play a big part in how well your ram performs, so it's definitely worth fine tuning them as well.

Should you Overclock with SpeedStep, C1E, or Turbo Boost Enabled?

One of the first things most overclocking guides tell you is to disable all power saving features (such as SpeedStep, C1E, C-States), as well as, Turbo Boost and Hyper-threading because these features could limit your overclock in the past. Is this still the case though, and if not, is it really worth it to disable them?

RAM, CPU Stress Testing - Software, Tools: Prime95, Intel Burn Test

Whenever you overclock, you'll need a variety of software and stress testing tools, so you'll be able to keep track of what's happening in your system. In this guide, we'll go over how to monitor your CPU temperature and how to stress test your processor, RAM, and overall system to ensure it's stable.

Optimizing Your Overclocked System for the Highest Performance

Whenever you overclock multiple parts of your system, it's unlikely that they'll all be able to perform at their best unless you've optimized them to work well together. One component will usually hold the others back, so in this guide, we'll discuss exactly how to make the cpu, ram, and bclk get along.

Memory (RAM) Timings & Latency: CAS, RAS, tCL, tRCD, tRP, tRAS

If you're trying to overclock your memory (RAM) or tighten its timings, you'll definitely need to understand how the most common memory timings and latencies work. In this guide we'll explain everything you'll need to know about CAS, RAS, tCL, tRCD, tRP, and tRAS.

Determining Your Maximum BCLK (Base Clock) Frequency - i7, i5, i3

In order to overclock your CPU, you'll usually have to also overclock BCLK. However, if you try to overclock the CPU and BCLK simultaneously, it's hard to know which one is holding you back. So, in this guide, we'll focus on finding your maximizing BCLK. Once you have it, you'll be able to overclock your CPU much more easily.
