The build is as follows:
-maximus hero vi mobo
-noctua nh-d14 cpu cooler
-asus 780 directcu II gpu
-corsair 860i psu
-corsair vengeance 1600 8gb x2 ram
Using the 4-way optimization software thing that came with the mobo, i can get to 4.2 ghz, but after that it bsod's and im scared to now go over 4.2ghz.
Also I've not OC'd my gpu at all either out of fear (actually i did once and everything went green - had to reset and didnt oc again).
Maybe oc-ing isn't worth it, but I prefer to get max performance out of this machine.
also, is 79 degrees ok for the gpu (it's default threshold value)? also what's a good temp for the cpu? I set the threshold to 60degrees c
Thanks for any help.
