Gigabyte Smart6 Questions!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I am just wondering if Smart Quickboost is safe, or even a smart thing to use when OCing. Or should I just OC the old fashioned way. It seems too easy to just click a button and it OC completely stable.

I tried using Gigabyte's Automatic Overclocking Utility on my Z68X-UD4 just to see what it would do. Chose middle option of 4.33GHz, I ended up having to shut off the power and short the clear CMOS terminals to get it out of the boot loop that occurred upon restart. I went back to using x45 multiplier. Turbo boost disabled, all power saving features enabled, offset voltage +.060(not sure if that's the board or my chip). That puts me at a very stable 4.5GHz with right at 1.35v under load. It drops down to 1.6GHz and just over 1v at idle. I would definitely suggest doing it manually.

I had issues with my computer just by installing that garbage software. I did install the touchbios just so I could see voltages.
