post #3151 of 3151
Hi guys, I've followed the guide very closely and I have a stable (at least 2 hours prime 95) 4.7Ghz with 1.375v set in bios and a Semi-stable (20-30 mins on prime 95) 4.9Ghz 1.4375 set in bios with 2 cores disabled. Both have power saving options re-enabled and neither has crashed yet as far as I'm aware.

If I am staying under 60c during load with my 4.9Ghz setup can I use this as a daily gamer?
4.8Ghz all cores enabled seemed to be unattainable for me as well (high thermals and much higher vcore needed).

I am very new to this as it is my first build and overclock, just curious to find out if I'm doing this right.
