View attachment 210841
Yesterday i tried to overclock my CPU and RAM. After i changed my ram from 1600 to 1866 my PC was keep resetting so i was a little scared and i gave up
CPU. It's 3,3Ghz, but it was already set to 3,7 in bios. I don't know why. I changed it slowly to 4300 and voltage from 1.25v to 1.35v. Tested it playing pubg and with cinebench. Got a little bit better results. Core temp did not exceed 75 degrees. I thought everything works fine so i decided to test it more today. Btw. i resetted my pc many times during this operation.
Today i tried to start my PC and... surprise. I didn't want to start. Fortunately switching off and on my extension cord helped and i could enter bios to revert all changes.
Does it mean this cpu is too fragile to overclocking or maybe i used wrong voltage? Everything above 1.35 was written with red color so i thought it is a warning
Please don't eat me for being a noob.
Well the thing was that i didnt lose anything in that kind of OC. Because i still had 4Ghz all core boost, only difference was i set it so if 4 cores used its 4Ghz, if 3 its 4.1Ghz, if 2 its 4.2Ghz and if 1 its 4.3Ghz. Both scenarios wanted the same voltage so i thought it didnt hurt. Next time i will OC all cores to same value for the sake of simplicity.
Btw ... for those cases where bluescreenview shows nothing ... it would be great to have a program running in background logging all actions into file, kindof like a debugger when running my code in java. That way i could see the last thing my pc was doing and could see what the reason was.
