Overclock Maximus Extreme-Z

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi guys, a few days ago I finished with my new build, and I use CPU Level Up the program that bios has to do overclock. i clock the CPu at 4.6 using that program, Everything is running stable..


My question is should I leave the overclock like that or should I do it manually???????

You should do it manually, you can 99% of the time get a higher clock with lower vcore (resulting in lower heat and power usage) - Just playing around with the "auto tune" on my board my chip would only do a 4.1ghz o/c, but by doing a manual clock its currently at 5ghz (could do higher).

What's your vcore set at? Also did you adjust any other settings other than the multi? I feel I'm doing somthing wrong as my chip seems way to power hungry.

I agree though, manual overclock gets much better results.
