First Time Overclocking, how are these numbers?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
As I said, this is my first time overclocking. I have been running this for about 35 minutes. I'm just a little nervous is all and I'm hoping for some good news.

Any tips or just to say it looks alright/normal would be great!

Looking good so far! Don't be nervous, those temps are fine and the voltage is low. You've got some head room. Despite what many say around here, it'll be hard to fry your hardware if you have a basic understanding of how to OC.

So I set the vcore to 1.5 right? However I know it's in some guide but I just need a quick reference. I increase the voltage and the multiplier at the same time? Or just the multiplier then the voltage?

Another quick question. I'm running WoW right now and my Core Voltage is at 1.272v and I thought I saw it go up to 1.280v. My question is why under the stress test it stayed at the lower core voltage during the stress test but it is increasing when playing a game? Did I miss something?
