Then raise bclk again, and repeat until you get to you highest or desired bclk.



ok so, take my multiplier from x23 to the lowest setting? and then just raise the bclk?

also whats a good stress test, i have OCCT, but is there another u would recommend?


oh yeah, the only thing i will not touch is any of my RAM, i would rather not overclock it as its not in my motherboards qaulified vendor list, but i have noticed i can set it to a slower speed and it will go up with my overclocks, i want it to be as close to stock 1333 as possible
