Big boys do not use the "automatic" overclock because more often than not it will send too many volts and can damage your CPU. But if that's what you want to do I hope you have fun. biggrin.gif

That's a bad idea, you might pump a load of voltage that kills the CPU.

Your overclock will depend on your CPU itself and the motherboard also.

Assuming 1.5v is the safe limit you won't have to worry about it. Auto settings will apply more volts it all by itself for you. biggrin.gif
post #10 of 23
CPUNB and CPU Voltage should NEVER EVER stay on auto. You havent told us what your current volts are, you havent told us if you want to OC the RAM, you havent told us if you want to OC the CPUNB. NOTHING.

Be more specific and give me details so i can help you. Otherwise ill just leave the thread.
