Quick question on power saving settings with an overclock

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey all,

So I'm wondering about the power saving features and their effect on a stable overclock. Is it as easy as turning on C1E or C6 (or both) once the OC is tested stable? Or will that possibly cause instability? Kinda a vague question but hopefully you get where I'm going. No need to run wide open when idle.

There's really no answer to that. Turbo, CIE, and C6 all wack voltages around quite a bit. They can play havoc with voltage offsets.They can easily cause a marginally stable overclock to go haywire. The best advice is to try it and see. If it works, or if you can play around and get it to work it's just money in your pocket.
