post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Can someone tell me why I can't overclock my rig past 4.6. I auto tuned it with the extreme auto system level up but kicks off just past 4.6. I seem to have the same system ( or close to them ) as others that have overclocked higher. Where am I going wrong? Thanks for any help.

What is this rig you speak of?
What are the problems you're having? Failing Prime? BSOD? Can't boot?

Can't help you unless you give us more information to work with.
You're also in the wrong forum.

I would start with that for one. Research your Hardware and learn to OC yourself. I find those Auto OC tool's dangerous and utterly useless. My opinion wink.gif
