Overclocked system slow when multitasking

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
So I recently Oc'ed my system and I was wondering is multitasking supposed to be slower after doing such or is my Oc not good. For example I am unraring or moving files on the hard drive and surfing the web or going through the file system and its dragging or semi freezing. Is this normal or do I need to change some settings? Thanks

Doesn't sound stable.
How did you check for stability?
post #4 of 16
Can you post up your current settings?

Also, prime95 and IBT should confirm system instability

Are your temps ok during LinX/IBT?

Are your Uncore and RAM clocks in line with the CPU OC?

This is noticably only after overclocking? It sounds like disk access issues but those would be there regardless of OCing.

Sounds like thermal throttling. Check your temps please when running IBT.
