Automatic Overclock?

I was loading my computer up and it said Overclocking success. Does this mean my mobo is automatically overclocking my CPU.

Ive never seen a msg telling me it was successful.
Although I have seen a message before that my Overclock wasnt good, in the form of a complete lock up and BSOD but still ...

You can only know if its a successful OC if
1)Windows is able to boot .. AND
2) it is able to maintain stability under heavy load and tempratures are within a sensible range.
(such as stress testing)...

How did you OC?

The sales brochure on that should read:

"Enjoy replacing hardware frequently? Why suffer the scorn of your friends because you have three month old hardware? Use our new Automatic OC function! It slices! It dices! It burns up those pesky old out of date components, so you can justify the new gear to the wife!"

I've never been a big fan of any "Auto OC" feature of any board.

I admit Im not familiar with the ASUS in particular, but from the few I am, they all tend to show the same behavior.

They work, yes. But also tend to be quite generous with voltages. Far more than is actually needed in most cases.

More Voltage = More Heat
which in turn significantly reduces the lifespan of the components.

True OCing of any kind will reduce the Hardwares life, but overvolting and heat do far more damage.

Just my take on it for what its worth.

I have to agree with wishmaster, volts=heat. That's why most overclockers will always tell you to manually set your voltages and stay away from "auto" if you can. The trick is figuring out which items to manually set, and which can be left at auto.

BTW my Gigabyte board comes with Easy tune but I don't use it. In fact I don't even have it installed.
