Windows 7: Using AS-ROCK OC Tuner for this OC?

would this problem be due to not enough power going thor the cpu

Most likely just not stable.

Also, the idle temps mean absolutely nothing. To get a good idea where you stand, set everything at its stock settings.
Run Prime95 for a hour or 2 and see where the temps max out at. Im sure itll be much more than 30-40C.


Personally,I find Auto OC utilities to be a waste of time. Simply because they use very generic settings, and as mentioned much higher voltages than needed.
In fact, the auto setting may be pushing the RAM to hard.


I would look into & research how to OC through the bios.
In a nutshell, youll want to Underclock the Memory, then start overclocking your CPU, making sure the RAM stays within Spec.

This way you can test everything and when it does crash, you'll know if its the CPU, RAM, or NB thats to blame.


Also, I would strongly advise against running your RAM over its Rated speed.
RAM is the easiest pice of HW to fry while overclocking, and also more prone to cause issues, such as BSODS.

Of course this depends on the RAM itself, as some will OC decent. Still, Id keep it within spec.

thank u but?

well the asrock motherboard im running is very hard to overclock with bios settings , but with octuner i manage to run my i3560 cpu to 3.7 very stable. but still only runs at 36 degress under load, i tried runing my cpu max by runign a video converter and version of babcompany 2 which did the trick , so um would u be able to suggest a new cpu over clocking program to me plz

Wishmaster is right when she says overclocking software just uses generic settings to achieve overclock results. This usually results in higher than necessary volts as the software (software vendor) has to account for a whole host of systems thus will settle for a middle ground setting.

This is why most experienced overclockers don't use overclocking software since it doesn't include all the tweaks/settings the BIOS has.

No one is saying the software doesn't work, we're saying it may be pushing your settings too high for the overclock, which would show up in your load temps.

Anyway I would suggest you look to your owner’s manual to see what options you may have in your BIOS for overclocking features. And if you don't have any, or are limited, well..... that should tell you something.

And although the software works, and may be your only option, it still can't replace the manual tweaks in the BIOS itself.

BTW you might want to visit an AS Rock forum to see what users there are saying about that board for overclockability, and BIOS updates.

Good luck.

Any yes both myself, and Wishmaster are overclockers, and I can say I've toyed with Easy Tune 6 which is Gigabyte's overclocking software and it DID push my volts too high for my liking.

thank you

thank you very much wishmaster and syg.
i took ur advice wish with lowering the voltage to the dram , and i figured out how to over clock from bios but with great stress and still wasnt able to go past the 3.7 mark, i use the 10 percent more power rule with my bios and apemt to over clock the cpu but still not much luck but it let go to 3.7 a lot more stable the bclk frequency is curently at 173 but when i go to go high machine crahes and burns

I'm sure they can help you get the most out of that board - ASRock > Forum

I did the same when I go my Gigabyte board (gigabyte forum) and they helped me a lot.

Good luck.

Ironic how a topic I started a few months ago becomes active again.

Anyway, from personal experience, The OC Tuner is perfectly fine, but the tools for Overclocking within most As-Rock bios' are relatively easy to use - and I'd always go for lower level Overclocking as you have generally more control over the settings. In my As-Rock board, anyway, point to CPU Settings in the Bios, change the Clock Mode...or something like that, to "PCIE Async Optimised" - that mode keeps your RAM timings and speeds set to their normal level, letting you bump up the clock speed in increments till you hit the sweet spotm without killing off your DIMMS in the process.
