OCing While in windows with an A8N-SLI Delux

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I am sick of OCing and booting into windows to see if it works out then going back the booting again and so on and so forth. I have heard that there are some good programs out there now for OCing through windows. Can anyone tell me what the best ones out now are? One came with my mobo but I have heard that it sucks so havent even installed it.

Clock-Gen is the only one I really know of... Alot of people use it.. Just run a search for it.

If you want to be able to get everything out of that great rig, you need to take your time and go by the steps, yea it might suck, but the end results will be well worth it

I have heard of Clock-gen, but i have never used it. You could Goggle it.
Also i find that if your clocking through windows, you will still have to reboot.

Another words:
I clock through my MSI Core Center ((Windows based)) I can do all my changes on my desktop. But i still have to reboot to make my bios match what i have done in windows. If i don't do this. i find that the system becomes very unstable. And or wont preform to its fullest.
For instance: I clock my CPU to 4.0 or set my V-core to a certain volts. Then me computer will run between the 2 settings (Bios and Core center) My volts will fluctuate between the 2 settings. My CPU will fluctuate between 3.4 and 4.0.
Which is not good for a stable system.
Hope you understand?

ClockGen works great, that is the one you need for NF4 motherboards. It's a very useful tool when fine tuning however its voltage options are limited so you'll have to adjust those in the BIOS. With ClockGen, just set the speed you want and it will automatically adjust the system speed, no rebooting required.
