But I'm allowed, and it's usually when peoples are spouting BS and passing it off as fact. There's some truth in your posts but also a lot of misinformation .... I've no idea where to begin...oh here's a start - how about the 62c max temp for Piledriver you claim... utter bollocks.
And no you did not know what Handbrake was or you would be telling me my OC could become unstable during encoding AFTER said I used handbrake to check for stability. Handbrake is
a video encoder.
I feel sorry for some of the people trying to get help here.........
g3d i lol.
62 is amds recommended max temp. i never said dont go above it. sorry to brake it to you. as i say below i have had my chip shut down due to hitting 90
it is easy to come in here and spew lies from your keyboard. all i ask for is proof.
so prove to me i am wrong.
i dont have time to find it before work. but i will after work.
also i know handbrake is an encoder.
i use dvdfab buddy

My comp was just sitting then when my antivirus software updated itself and rebooted my machine, upon completed of the update it does a scan to conclude it, and I hadnt noticed.
walked into the room with my fans going full speed with a scan going, and it blue screened.
After it blue screened it would not boot again, and kept getting blue screens just before the windows boot logo.
I had to down clock my chip to be able to boot, now back at 5ghz at 1.42 vCore with Ultra LLC.
Did I just ruin my chip? Am I likely to ever get high clocks out of it again?
I had left it at the 5.2 because it only hit a max of 54C in BF3 which is the highest CPU stressing game that I have, regretting my decision to do it on a chip this awesome, 5Ghz stable at 1.42 vcore is pretty nuts, I hit 64C on prime95 after 4 hours. Overnight at about 8-10C ambient Hits 47 average in BF3

My question is, would excessive heat. for a small duration enough to bluescreen the comp cause the chip to degrade to the point where it would make the chip unstable at higher overclocks?
Im not sure on the heat the core got to, but im assuming that it was in the 70's before it blue screened.
It's just the fact that the OS is fine with a lower overclock, but bluescreens when trying to boot on the one that it bluescreened on makes me think the OS is alright..
Just seems like it's no longer able to run at that speed anymore, making me think I ruined my chip
I thought that the chip would throttle or reboot if it got too hot, but the system bluescreened.
The chip would have been at that heat for about a minute or so.
you are probably fine my chip has gone to 90 several times.
bios or os could be corrupted. as already statedEdited by Mega Man - 9/20/13 at 8:12am
