ASUS X99 A-II now used with 3 power cables - better chance for overclocking?

Hi guys,

I have been running my system with a 6850k for a while now. Today I noticed that I did not attach the 4pin power cable. My system was only power by 8 and 24pin cable.

How comes my system was stable all the time?

The 4pin power is now applied to the board. I was wondering if now a better oc is possible? Also lowering the vcore?

Thanks 🙂

Unless you're doing extreme overclocking, the 4 pin power cable is usually not needed. However, it's good practice to use if your PSU has that extra cable.

Thanks mate. Still, is there a way to test if the oc works better? Tweaking the cvore?
