    Question Overclock Help Needed!! P8P67 PRO + i7 2600K + Kingston HyperX 12GB 1600Mhz

    Hey guys, the last time I posted I was asking for your opinion whether the build I was intending to buy was good for the budget I was on, In the end after alot of hardship, I have my rig, and It's as follows:

    Motherboard: Asus P8P67 Pro B3
    CPU: Intel i7 2600K
    Memory: Kingston HyperX 12GB 1600MHz DDR3 Non-ECC CL9 DIMM 1.65V 9-9-9-27
    Graphics Card: Gigabyte HD6950 2GB
    HDD's: 1TB WD Green Caviar + 1TB WD Black Caviar
    SSD: 64GB G.Skill Falcon SSD
    Cooler: Corsair Hydro H70 Cooler Push&Pull
    PSU: Corsair HX650 Modular PSU 650watt
    I have trouble overclocking with all 3 Ram Sticks in, so for now I'm only using 8GB, and I've used the Asus overclock tool, but it's unstable and causing me a headache, However it did overclock to 5.1Ghz.

    I would really appreciate any help, I need to manually overclock my system to 4.6Ghz~4.8Ghz, preferrably with 12GB ram.

    Also I have a question, will overclocking my GPU affect the CPU and ram overclocking?

    Thank you in advance.

    Have you tried increasing VCCIO(QPI/VTT)? Shouldn't need more than 1.2v.

    No I haven't, thanks for the pointer, but I don't know how to use it, I know it's a new feature in Sandybridge, I was hoping to get a recommended setting list, Lsdmeasap once gave me a list of all the values he thought I should change to get a stable overclock..

    There is not much to change in SB other than vcore and VCCIO unless you are setting memory timings manually.
    There is also VCCSA, which may need to be increased at very high CPU frequency and/or with a lot of memory. Some say not to touch, but I've seen people set it over 1.1v. Intel's max value for this option is 0.971v.
    Try to increase VCCIO at 0.01/0.005v steps up to 1.2v, this usually will be sufficient.
