A question about overclocking!!!! - Page 2

post #11 of 16
Well, it's not the PSU's capacity I'm concerned about; it's just that I don't know how high you can go before this PSU makes achieving stability a bit on the difficult side. So, I guess I'd stick to more average overclocks.

For GPU, you can MSI Afterburner, EVGA Precision X, or any other alternative. For CPU, all you have to do is alt+tab and open task manager. If your CPU is maxing out at 100% then there's your bottleneck. smile.gif

Which ever happens to be your bottleneck.

I'm wondering the same thing: do you overclock the the that's at 100%? Or the one that's not at 100%? My guess is, overclock the one that's at 100% because then it won't have to work that hard.

Sorry, I haven't slept at all. Yes, you overclock the one at 100%.
