One thing to add to what other have said, when you are running a stress test on your GPU or CPU put the keyboard and mouse down and go watch TV

When your CPU/GPU is running at 100% trying to smash through even web browsing can cause a freeze or other types of instability.

1st rule: if you can't afford to replace it, don't OC it.

LOOOOL

I was surfing OCN while doing Prime95 on 3.5 GHz on my processor. Then bam! BSOD. I might do the overclock again, this time leaving my PC alone.

But yeah wouldn't upping the volts require protection on the mosfets? I've been told that OC'ing CPUs with voltage increases might risk the mobo's components frying so I'm not pushing above stock 1.4v as of now due to a lack of mosfet heatsinks.

Yup, the mosfet's would be burning away as you know it. Run Prime95 for 10mins and touch the mosfet's heatsink, and you would be surprised on how hot it is. Especially on mine. I will get a picture inside my PC later and put it up on one of my thread that i posted on "AMD CPU's" earlier.

I had the vcore @ 1.45v when it crashed. And yeah, trying to watch youtube whilst running stress test was probably massive fail on my part lol.

But it doesn't seem to of affected anything thankfully. Right back at 4Ghz as i type. Now up to 1.5v. Wasn't going push/pull before either, but that has improved temps at high voltages A LOT. Now sitting at 35c with my heater on full.

About to begin stress test (very nervous). Will use Prime95 instead of OCCT this time.

Do you have a C2 or a C3 CPU? CPU-Z/CPUID will tell you if you don't know. Mine is a C2 and I need 1.5125 volts on the core to get to 3.78GHz stable 24/7. I've gone all the way up to 1.55 volts but can't get anything above 3.78 stable. It'll usually boot if I go higher than that, but crashes in a minute or two of intel burn or prime95.

Keep at it!

Good Luck Just don't be scarred , You got use OC people to help you out

Just make sure the CPU temp "NOT CORE" goes past 60C preferabley and no damage is done

The funny thing is, I was stress testing my CPU the other night after trying to re-enable the power saving settings on my current overclock. I while I was running LinX, I was also browsing the web. Still no issues. I figured if it truely was stable, it should be able to handle it

I don't know if I would have done that if I didn't already know my overclock was stable. I still think I have headroom left on my CPU. I'm at 4.085 GHz on my i7 9.30 at 1.27 volts and my hottest core during an overnight Prime95 stress test was 63C. I had run that way for months before deciding that I wanted to turn the power saving features back on in the BIOS.

Well i ran about 15mins of prime, which isn't long i know. Was very stable and coretemp was 55c but CPU went up to 66c. Should i go off core or CPU temp?
