Default Re: Overclock limit

Ya went back to put it down and the whole system crashed. Took me a while to reboot it. Set it to Asus' overclock profile of 10%, which is where I had it before. It's not bad but I wanted to see if I could push it more. Any ideas on why that happened? Subpar mobo perhaps?

Its either mobo or PSU. Try a different one.

Unless it's not enough power, my psu is nice. The mobo probably just isn't built for overclocking. I'm ok with it for now. I'll upgrade in the future. For now, having spent less than 300 dollars on it, I'm satisfied.

The PSU could be unstable. Try another if you have one. If not, I believe everest can monitor PSU voltage.

nope. It can't. At this point, like I said, I'm satisfied with core power.

I think unless you measure the vdroop with a precision multimeter your never going to 'know' what the true 'vdroop' value is.

I think the main thing to do is watch the temps.
