Overclocking an Ivy bridge processor

When you go for the overclocking of a processor, you are constantly in danger of damaging your system, board, processor, Ram etc. Reasons are multiple, but as you may be aware, is the Heat controlling.

No doubt, Intel did a remarkable job in introducing the Core i7 3770K processor, but it requires special cooling techniques. Tools like, Corsair A70, (http://www.legitreviews.com/corsair-a70-dual-120mm-fan-cpu-cooler-review_1389) fan coolers, or RTS2011LC, a sealed liquid cooling thermal solution (http://www.legitreviews.com/intel-core-i7-3770k-3-5ghz-ivy-bridge-processor-review_1914) maybe required when tampering with the overclocking of this processor. Both the solutions are very heavy on the pocket…

However the extensive tests using the above tools are provided below for your review:

TDP: 77, Cores/Thread: 4/8, CPU Base Freq (GHz): 3.50, Max Turbo Freq (GHz): 3.90, DDR3 (MHz):1600, L3 Cache: 8M, Intel HD Graphics 2500/4000: 4000, Graphics Base Render Frequency: 650 MHz, Graphics Max Dynamic Freq: 1150 MHz

The above are the legit results performed by different experts and are currently the benchmarks for this processor.
