My System Specs

Default i7 2700K & Sabertooth P67 (B3)

Hello everyone! I was hoping some of you might be able to help with your expertise on how to best achieve a good overclock, good temps, and a decent voltage.

I have 3 machines in total (but working on both i7 2700K's at the moment), I did my best to google on how to overclock as well as use our site. Appears not to many people have the i7 2700K's and if they do they don't put much detailed info out there on how they achieve the overclock and instead just say @ 4.5GHz - 5.2GHz. So I did some searching here and found this link in one of the forums to help so I went by this last night : P67 Sandy Bridge Overclocking Guide For Beginners

I'd like depending on my CPU's to atleast attain 4.6GHz but wouldn't mind 4.8GHz (I think 5.0GHz although cool is probably pushing it to hard over the long term.)

So first off last night I got my RMA H100 (last one was faulty and didn't work well).
I took off the old H100 (shipping it back to them today) and installed the new one (I left on the Paste it came with and its still running much cooler I can always remount later if need be with AS5 if you guys think it will make a big difference).

Machine #1 (Mine) ; Asus Sabertooth P67 (B3) + i7 2700k + H100 + GSKill F3-17000CL11D-8GBXL
Motherboard : ASUS - Motherboards- ASUS SABERTOOTH P67
**This is running newest BIOS 2302**
CPU : Intel® Core
RAM : G.SKILL-Products

The guide I mentioned above I tried to follow the best I can but I got completely lost and confused on the following :

Load Line Calibration : I have quite a few options here (its currently on AUTO)
CPU Voltage : Manual (I have mine at Auto as I was so confused what to actually set this too!)
CPU Manual Voltage : I tried the voltage in that screenshot and got no boot at all! Tried raising it a bit and still no boot then I put it back to Auto and vola!
CPU PLL Voltage : I can not set this to disabled it lets me do #'s and Auto that's my only choices in BIOS

ALSO for RAM I used the XMP profile but it would not boot at 2133 so I lowered it to 1333 and it boots fine.

So far with the settings mentioned (if you need anything specific let me know) I have a stable or seems stable overclock of 4.5GHz My temps when running prime were around 60 and idle was about 28-30

This seems pretty good so far I think but hope to tweak the above stuff with help from you all. Also I hope to up my RAM (not sure why it wouldn't run at 2133 as the board supports it!)

I will take screenshots tonight if possible of CPUz, CoreTemp, Prime95 (I still need to install AVX or whatever). Let me know your thoughts and ideas thanks!
