Hi! It would be very helpful if you can also provide what exact processor you are using and the make and model of your motherboard as well. You can overclock your SandyBridge processor through the CPU multiplier but the only motherboards that will allow this are P67s. You would also be able to “Turbo Boost” standard Sandy Bridge processors a little higher than normal if your cooler is powerful enough. On the other hand, K-series processors have unlocked multiplier that is limited to 57x. For example you can overclock a Core i5-2500k to 4.5 Ghz, you need to go inside your computer’s BIOS settings > go to the advance menu (click top-right corner button) and set the CPU multiplier to 45x. Next you need to enable Load –line calibration and set the voltage to 1.3-1.35V. CPU PLL set to 1.9V, VCCIO to 1.106, VCCSA to 1.1V, save and exit by hitting F10. Hope this helps.

Hi,

Over clocking is a complex procedure. Some over clocking methods based with increasing voltage. So over clocked processer generate more heat. So you should get some steps to cooling you system, If not it will burn our processor and then Go to BIOS and check your motherboard and processer over clocking capability under performance tab. Then increase your processer voltage by 5% and check your system temperature. Increase your voltage and increase your speed in ascending order. But this is a Risk. Manufacture warranty will be cancelled and your processor life time will be reduce in 60-70%. So I personally didn’t recommend over clocking.
