I desperately need someone to hold my hand and help me overclock my new system as the last time I overclocked a CPU was when Lynnfield and the P55 chipset had just been released. Incidentally that was using my old MSI P55-GD80 (awesome board).

New PC spec -

MB - MSI Z87 GD65 Gaming
CPU - i5-4670K
Memory - Patriot Viper "Black Mamba" 4*4GB 1600MHz
Cooling - Corsair H100
Case - Corsair 600T SE
PSU - Corsair HX+ 750

All I've done so far is increase Vcore to 1.25V, change the multiplier to x45 and enabled XMP for the memory.

Anything past that is beyond my know how and all this talk of BCLK, PLL, CPU cache etc just makes my head hurt but explained properly I'm confident I could get to grips with it all.

Any help to get the most out of this cpu and motherboard would be greatly appreciated.

Sounds good to me if your getting 4.5@1.25 vcore... Wish I could use such small amount of voltage to be stable, I require about 1.44 at that speed for stability.
