Overclocking Tools ... ?

When attempting to determine what's causing an overclocking related crash, how do you determine the culprit ?

Are there monitoring tools that can indicate the problem and solution ?

Hi Denna

If your pc is unstable you could reset to defaults and start over, first get your ram stable with a stress test then move on to overclocking your cpu.

Doing one thing at a time helps you to know where the instability is.

Nate152,

At this point, I've got a stable overclock on a 4790K that passes RealBench stress tests with:


  • 4949 MHz Core
  • 4646 MHz Cache
  • 2424 MHz Memory


I'm not sure if there's much wiggle room left.

I haven't performed a RealBench stress test with all the unnecessary services shut down, just a configuration used for day to day purposes.

With the IGP disabled, the RealBench score is usually around 135,000.
