It was automatic! Please I understand that if you oc too much it can freeze and if its a too low a voltage it will freeze. It was automatic what could I do? It set it for me. And its an xfx so the stock cooler is decent.
I manually oc'ed to 630mhz and it is stable.
Thanks anyway but please read other posts.
