dont do the second. just change the multiplier and then adjust voltage as necessary. either use a fixed voltage - runs at that voltage constantly regardless of cpu load/speed or offset voltage. Never use Auto voltage. Also read this, then read it again. http://www.overclock.net/t/1198504/complete-overclocking-guide-sandy-bridge-ivy-bridge-asrock-edition

just raise the multiplier to 44 should be some presets in your motherboard, those can work too

just to be clear that would be the CPU ratio found in here, correct?
