Solved!

HP Overclocking

HP Recommended
HP Envy Phoenix 860se
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I recently bought an Envy Phoenix with a 5820k in it, and I am looking to do some overclocking. I would like to mention comes with HP closed-loop water cooling, which I know nothing about. I was wondering how far I should overclock the 5820k (I heard it was a beast) with the HP cooling (is it even good?) and how to overclock on the HP motherboard. Thanks for your help!!

PhoeNiX777, welcome to the forum.

 

You can go into the BIOS to find the section for Overclocking.  As to how far can the processor be OC'd? -- it depends on the processor.  I have never found two processors that OC the same.  The best policy is to take it in small increments.  This will assure that it doesn't overheat too much.  HEAT is your enemy.  The liquid cooling will make a lot of difference, but it still has its limitations.

Thanks! I think I will OC to 3.6 Gigahertz, because that is as far as I am comfortable with. As for the BiOS, how do I enter it? I have never overclocked before and I don't know how to... Thanks for the help!

You are welcome.  Thank you for the additional information.

 

Here is a good article on OC'ing.  It is not specific to HP's BIOS, but it will give you an idea what it is all about.  There are hundreds of good articles that you can read.  It has been awhile since I have OC'd.  I had a DFI LanParty DF4 motherboard for several years.  It had over 250 BIOS settings that I could change.  I spent many an hour correcting mistakes that I made.  This is when I learned to take things in small increments.  Also, make certain that you make a note of your original settings.  This will save a lot of frustrations later.  Although you can reset the BIOS back to its Defaults.  You will find that HP has not given you many settings to change.  In fact, I just got a Phoenix 860-170VR as a loaner from HP.  It has a i-6700K.  I am in the process of learning how to OC it.

 

You can enter the BIOS by tapping the F10 key, as soon as, the computer begins to boot.  This will take you into the BIOS setup menu.  Also, you can begin tapping the Esc key to take you to the Startup menu.

 

Good luck!  Let me know if you have further questions.
