Over Clocking GigabyteHD3z270

I recently got a z270 Gigabyte hd3 but i have no idea how to overclock it. i know the basic principles of overclocking, i know that you have to change the frequency and the cpu voltage. But i dont actually know how to do on this motherboard. The settings are set to auto, and I dont know how to change it. Help would be appreciated !

  1. what cpu first?
    Dont touch voltage at the start, just oc and do some prime 95 when it start to crash up the voltage a bit, i dont recommen over 1.125 of v if you want a Long lifespan ( liek 8 years)

    1.125v is less than stock voltage on Kaby Lake CPUs. Stock voltage on these are 1.2V. Try to stay below 1.3v or 1.35v at max to get a long lifespan.

    But we do need to know your CPU. You don't overclock your motherboard, you overclock your CPU.

    Voltage don't kill the CPU heat does unless your try to put like 1.5 volts to it.

    we are talking about common use with the oc, not a 30m overclock just to run benchmark and archive it
    right?, Cpu usually last very long like 15 years, as all of us know the kabylake is just a rebrand and oc of the previus generation Skylake. So intel just pushes higher voltage because well the product will be discontinued for they when the cpu lifespan end. Thats why Kabylake has less lifespan than others, and pushing more voltage over it and just sayng that the stock voltage is high and upping it doesn't matter is wrong, the actual stock voltage is decreasing lifespan and ov will make it less , thats why i calculate something like 8 years. And if you say that oc dont hurt if temps are low, well actually i have been watching more cases of i7 of 2011-2012 with cores that cant sustain the oc ( this will be long sorry xD, Cpu's tend to gradually need more voltage to reach the same clocks, usually this doesnt matter, but in cpus that have been pushed far away that "little" degratadion make notable, and to push the same oc you up the voltage and the degradation goes faster and your push more voltage and well thats the cycle ) So if you want to have a 24/7 ( or well just continium use) oc dont push the voltage over 1.30 aprox.
    Resuming
    Dont push voltage over 1.30 aprox ( depends cpu) if you want a high lifespan :3

    Most of that is total BS!
    You can run the new chips on 1.3 volts if need without hurting them. I don't know of anybody that will use a CPU for 8 Years.
    I have a OC i5 2500K that has pushed the limit since the chip came out at 5.0 and had it pushed to 5.2 for a while al the time pushed over 1.35 volts .
    Intel will not tell you the volt limits on their chips just what is recommended.
    Over 15 years building and repairing I have never seen a chip dead!
    Their a lot of boards that will put much more voltage to the chips at stock speed than is needed if you know how to OC a chip then you do if not you get into giving bad advice like you are.
    A OC can become unstable over time true BUT IS THIS THE CHIP OR THE BOARD?
    8 Years ago you would be running this I don't know of a single person that still has one but I'm sure some do but their not a gamer or using modern work programs. (Q8400) or on the high end a i7 950 on the 1366 socket.

    i have been using a Q9650 for well almost 8 years? xD, and you dont go to hurt it, but you will reduce the lifespan.

    I'll put this post up to what Forest Gump's mana said and leave it like that.

    Keep in mind that over-clocking does not depend only on the Vcore voltage and processor temperature, but also you need to take in consideration other options in the BIOS itself.
    Anyways, since we do not recommend over-clocking we do not provide support on it, however if you still want to over-clock the processor, you might want to do it in an escalated way for processor safety
