I have just built my first PC, and I wanted to overclock the CPU, but so far no luck.
I am a complete newbie when it comes to overclocking and I have no idea what I'm doing, I mostly followed youtube videos and online tutorials.
I tried to overclock the i7 6800K to 4.2Ghz and 1.3 voltage, it run stable for 5-6 hours but as soon I started playing overwatch it went blue screen.
The second time I tried to use the settings from this YouTube video: https://youtu.be/ZZEl21JpXSo
4.2 Ghz and 1.299 voltage and other custom settings, no luck this time also.
I tried at 4.1 Ghz and 1.225voltage and still no luck, 4.2Ghz and 1.35 and it was the same story, looks like I got the CPU from a bad bin or I totally have no idea what I am doing.
My Specs are:
CPU: Intel Core i7-6800K
MOBO: MSI X99A GAMING 7
COOLING: NZXT Kraken X62
RAM: DDR4 Corsair VENGEANCE LED 32GB (4x8) 2666MHz
GPU: MSI GTX 1080 GAMING X 8G
SSD: Samsung 960 PRO 512GB
HDD: WD Black 2Tb
PSU: Corsair RM850i
and a Dark Base Pro 900 Case from be quiet! (if that matters).
I really hope that someone will be able to help me.
I did few benchmarks but that told me nothing
And I did a stress test using Prime95 and all it told me that there was a fatal error but not why or I just can't understand what it want's.
I kindly ask for your help!
