AOD vs. BIOS

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I was wondering how secure OCing from AOD was. I got 3.7GHz stable @ 1.3875v and I was just wondering if there was a huge difference from AOD to BIOS. I know that GPUs use software so why can't CPUs? I can't OC my NB through AOD so I have to do that through BIOS for sure.

Software overclocking saves the settings into the BIOS while it's still running, so it's less reliable and can cause crashes.

BIOS overclocking saves the settings into the BIOS when you exit it.

ah I see.

I set my CPU to 3.7GHz and voltage to 1.3875v

What NB Voltage and NB Frequency should I use? stock NB voltage is 1.250v

Yes, there can be a big difference, namely between being stable or not.

Use bios. much reliable than using AOD.

You need to increase cpu-nb voltage, not the nb voltage. Try 2.8ghz nb with 1.35v cpu-nb.

guys aod has its uses. I am really greatful for it. got an fx 8120 and the bios couldn't disable the apm so it would throttle. only way around it is to enable turbocore in aod ,apply, disable it, then apply again. so aod is great and really useful. wouldn't actually use it to oc my pc but it is great for disableing turbo core
