I mean there is a difference between reading stuff, and opinions and someone there to answer questions..
On the other hand I feel like everything is working smooth.. why mess with it and create more windows errors and all that stuff.. I don't have the best luck in life.. my luck is pretty terrible actually... Sometimes i feel someone put a curse on me... This overclock went pretty well ... My computer didn't explode i didn't end up with a faulty chip... I didn't crack my motherboard in half trying to install that fan.. Plus we added about 60 new pages to this thread of you patiently walking me through.. You got me to a stable 4.5 and im pretty happy.. I think ive pestered you enough.. Maybe ill just conclude the OC as a success and enjoy it for awhile and pick things up again in the future.. maybe an issue will come up where i have to.. but for now im just actually enjoying a faster machine that is stable on a fresh windows , new ssd.. Soon i might even turn my cache writing back on! lol
Well, dude, I can very much relate to the feeling of having a curse... That's how I am feeling right now. Went to serious professional heights in my life and (very) few lows. Every time people wow at my credentials in my field at the highest level, then a few, not all, without even talking to me, start nitpicking at my bio. I even found a few scared once. I don't even pay attention to that. Between my former colleagues, 99.99% of them still reach out to me with respect and request for advise or opinion. I consult them and with them, and actually consult other people too now (you including
) For me every perceived "fall" is an opportunity to start new, to learn about whom I can trust, learn about various situations, new ways to approach matters - troubleshooting, dude
I stand up, dust off and go up step by step. I am in a serious predicament for over a year, but I don't intend to let my hands down. And I'll get out of it, even if it takes lots of time. That's why I am good (enough
) at overclocking, if I fail, I try another approach, until I do it and I read and learn
What a parallel, LOL
I need to overclock my life
Life is a more complicated matter than OC, but your first OC of that 3570k was a clear success, nothing less. Now enjoy that, maybe a small, but pleasant success! Good luck in 2019!
