is still know? What does that mean xd Does it mean I can increase more?
VRM's switch on and off very fast in order to achieve the desired output voltage. A higher frequency means it can switch on and off faster to maintain a stable voltage whatever it's set to. Increasing it will help get a better OC, but can also lead to coil-whine (not a bad thing, just annoying sound to some) and extra heat from the increased switching. I haven't had a chance to look up your motherboard, but most lower end Asus AMD boards are lacking in really good heat sinks on the VRM's. They are good at handling stock settings, but anything more and you must be careful.
As another member said, stick with adding a fan over top of the VRM area if you have any doubts.
