I'm new to overclocking, what i did was basically just go into my bios and set the multiplier to whatever number that was reasonable to me like 3.4 -> 4.0 but lately ive been getting errors. I've done stress test with prime 95 before but this was about 6 months ago and it crashed about 5 hours in.
I'm not too sure about setting the other options in the bios other than the cpu multiplier. Can anyone give me assistance with setting the right calibration options for overclocking?
