    Default Intel i7-4770K - ASUS Z87 Sabertooth 24/7 OC

    I'm going to go through some of the OC settings I'm using on my i7-4770K and Sabertooth setup.
    It's nothing extreme, just a nice performance increase while trying to keep heat and therefore noise to a minimum.

    Intel i7-4770K
    ASUS Sabertooth Z87 BIOS v1405
    16GB Corsair Vengeance LP Black DDR3-1866 (2x8GB)
    2x Corsair Force 3 120GB RAID 0
    2x WD Black 1TB RAID 0
    EVGA GeForce GTX 770 Superclock ACX
    ASUS Xonar DX PCI-E
    Corsair H100i CPU Cooler
    Corsair AX860i
    Coolermaster CM-690 II USB 3.0

    EIST – Off

    Turbo - On
    CPU Ratio – 42 (42x100 - 4.2GHz)
    DDR Frequency - 1600MHz
    Core Voltage - Auto (giving me 1.198v)
    Min Cache Speed - 39
    Max Cache Speed - 42 (locking it at 4.2GHz)

    These settings have given me a nice stable 24/7 overclock, while my Corsair H100i Fans are locked at 1000Rpm using Thermal Radar.

    Some other settings I have changed…

    System Agent Config -> CPU Audio Device -> Disabled
    System Agent Config -> NB PCIe Config ->
    Gen 3
    System Agent Config -> Graphics Config -> Primary Display -> PCIe

    Bit of an update, as with the newer BIOS versions I have been able to use the 16GB Corsair Vengeance LP Black DDR3-1866 (2x8GB) at 1866MHz.
