I just got my cpu fan installed today, so I tried overclocking with AMD Overdrive.
I read somewhere that someone got a stable 3.8GHz overclock at 1.45 volts so I tried that. Then, I restarted and did I short test with OCCT, while doing that I opened coretemp to see the frequency of the cores. They wouldn't go any faster that 3.2GHz, stock voltage. BUT, if I change the frequency and the core voltage and won't restart, during the test the frequency will reach 3.8GHz.
It seems like the overclock just doesn't want to stay. Anyone have this problem?
When I go into overdrive, I click the performance control tab, all cores is selected, drag the multiplier to 19x, then drag the voltage to 1.4568. I then hit apply and OK.
Is there a step I am missing or not doing correctly?
