    i got my 3570k running at 4.2 right now , had it up to 4.5 on a asus sabertooth z77 mb, wasnt hard at all

    i would just watch about adding to much voltage i personally wouldn't go over 1.3v from what i have read


    just saying tho the turbo 3.8 is problly all you really need for moderate use

    Yeah you'll probably get 4.2GHz just by using the performance option in the UEFI.
