I finally took the plunge and started working on overclocking my system. I have an ROG Maximus IX Hero motherboard with an I7-7700K processor. I got to 4.8 GHz fairly easily and my system is really stable and my CPU temps only reach about 69 C. When I try to bump up to 4.9 GHz, everything gets really flaky, really fast. I'm lucky to even get Windows 10 to load completely before the system locks up and, even when I do, I usually make it only a couple of minutes. Temps still don't look bad, when I can last long enough to actually load Core Temp. It's just super unstable.
What would you guys suggest I start tweaking first to see if I can go up anymore an gain some stability? My VCore is at 1.30 V currently. I was thinking I'd start bumping voltage up by 0.01 or 0.02, to see if that helped any.
