Thing is it hasn't stopped me from enjoying the games I play and I max or put close to max everything I play and I am playing at 1080p. Still after seeing these new posts talking about high overclocks it has me feeling not quite right and not so good about what I have done to these rigs. LOL!
    Your OC was fine and I didn't think that anyone was berating you.

    My post about my FX-9590 was supposed to be funny because it runs at 4.7GHz stock, and it's turbo frequency is 5.0GHz. (I don't OC it at all~~~LOL!~~~)

    O/Cing and pushing limits are what we do here. Everyone understands that we do this at our own risk, but we tend to throw caution to the wind and do it anyways.
    I always enjoy reading about other people's successes and how they did it. You just keep on keeping on DeViLzzz. It's all good.

    This site would be boring without the class of people who participate here.

    I was pretty much asking for the hate as it is stupid for me to have aftermarket coolers and no overclocks on the pcs right now. LOL! Btw not sure I mentioned my OCs in this thread but I think I had them in the 4.5 to 4.7 GHz range for an AMD FX 6300 and an i5 2500k and they had been tested 24 hrs+ each time I overclocked them even if I just increased the overclocks a small amount and they passed every test I threw at them but for some reason despite a proper fan setup plus having aftermarket coolers these things eventually started giving me errors, blue screens, froze up, etc. It happened too much to ignore. The thing was temperatures were always very good. I don't know what happened. :S
    I wish I could build pcs each and every single day for the rest of my life. PC FTW !

    Overclocking is labor intensive and an exercise in tweaking different settings until it works the way that you want it to, or you give up.

    How many settings are there in a motherboard BIOS? All of them work together (or not) to modify the way everything runs on your PC.
    Many of them can affect the way other components work as well. There are so many combinations to screw-up, and only a few to succeed.
    Sometimes not having proper airflow across certain parts of your motherboard will make an O/C fail. A semi-bad PSU can do the same.

    BTW: Nothing in my house is running on the stock coolers, and I don't think that it's stupid to use a better cooler when running stock.

    When you run things beyond spec, expect there will be little problems.


    I didn't have a lot of luck with my AMD FX overclocks since Bulldozer came out. I tweaked a lot and didn't really get good results. All of them ran excellent on stock clocks, so I ran them that way.
    I have no problem with O/Cing my Intel boxes, so I run them out of spec all of the time.
