Overclocking password? Tags: Overclocking Software Last response: August 15, 2011 9:13 PM in Overclocking Share junaid96 August 5, 2011 11:31:28 AM Hi guys, I'm not sure if this is in the right section... b ut I'm new so please cut me some slack Basically, I just built myself a new SB build, and my GPU and mobo includes OC software in Windows. However... non-admins seem to be able to open the software! Will they be able to overclock my PC? This is a shared computer, and I don't want anyone to blow up my PC. Perhaps I should make a BIOS password? Will this stop software from OCing? Thanks guys. I daren't leave my PC alone!

Last part was a jk! Sorry couldn't resist! jsc a c 197 K Overclocking August 6, 2011 3:27:20 AM Like ryan said, do not install any Windows based overclocking software. Then do not permit users to install software. Learn to use the BIOS to overclock your system. And password protect the BIOS. That will solve about 95% of your problems.

The user password will let you boot the system. junaid96 August 7, 2011 10:52:49 AM Cool thanks for the help bit annoyed that i have to uninstall the software tho - I found it pretty useful... majorgibly August 15, 2011 9:13:32 PM Learn how to do it in the bios will be better anyway.
