Windows 7: Motherboard Installation Troubles

11 Apr 2016   #11

Windows 10 Pro x64 (UPGRADED - 10/20/2016)

So I got my CPU overclock to 4GHz, tried on for 4.2GHz and the system just BSOD. :P Probably because I didn't increase the CPU voltage enough.

Yep the AMD chips like a little more voltage if you have the cooling headroom.

Same connected setup with my V Formula-Z only that control panel no longer works. Realtek's audio chips are rubbish!

EDIT: Microsoft blocked my product key! It said I had 4 activations left of my retail key and it's only been activated once!

You can contact Microsoft for that now overclocking AMD machines are a little tricky due to heat

If you're using a Six core and you are OC'ing it turn off the turbo core it will not help you after a certain point
