It really highlights how far Ocing has come in just a few years. From wildest dreams to a click.


On the downside, it's really taken the fun out of Overclocking.

Nice overclock, michaelst. But, I agree with smarteyeball, it's just getting too easy. We really used to have to work at overclocking. And some of us still do it the 'old fashioned' way.

Way too easy. I've read that "in the old days" people rewrote or modded BIOSes and in some case used a pencil or metallic pen to make different connections on a CPU.

Using one of the auto-clockers will change many variables that are really too high, like volts.

The nice thing about these Asus boards is you can still do your overclock the manual way. There's even a semi-manual method, It's completely versitile. I just chose the one click method to see what it would do.

And of course you don't even need to overclock the new i7 4790k to get 4.4ghz.

We often use it to find a ~stable OC then make the BIOS settings to match and see if it flies.

Be careful using auto clock. Sometimes it will jack up the cpu vcore a bunch.

My motherboard had an option to choose any speed I desired. But I think it might be too much on the chip to bear. Was playing with DOTA2 the other day and the Idiot PC blank-screened on me. Might have to haul the clock down to ~4200 Mhz.
