Overclocking Issues

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So I have been overclocking my CPU today and ran into a problem from the start. I overclocked from 3.4 to 3.5 using the multiplier of x17 to x17.5 but if I manually set the voltage to 1.375, I get an instant BSOD, I even set it to 1.475 and still get a BSOD. Right now my system is at 3.5 but only way to get it to run is to leave the voltage at AUTO. Looking at CPU-Z the voltage is at 1.475 and the temps jumped from 28C to 33C IDLE, so I just want to know if I should leave the voltage on auto or figure something else.

Start with a smaller overclock, figure out what voltage it needed for it to boot up and stay fine while stressed. Once you get that, move up a little bit. Take smaller steps. It will help you get a better feel of what your chip can do and cannot do. I don't like leaving my voltage on idle, though.

The smallest that I can overclock is the amount I just did because through the multiplier I can only raise it in increments of .5 and the voltage can only be raise 1.375 - 1.435 - 1.500.

I ran Prime95 for 30 minutes and these are the results, should I continue or should I stop overclocking and put it back to stock.338

Okay I set my CPU to 3.8 and did a 12 hour test on Prime 95, these are the results:

338

If you look at the temps, they are at 43C, these temps are kind of misguiding because this screenshot was taken in the morning where it is currently very cold here in New York City but normally that number would've been at 48-51C on full load. Looking at these results, should I continue overclocking or keep it at 3.8 because I have yet to overclock it more.
