ASROCK Optimized OC? Tags: ASrock Overclocking Last response: November 29, 2012 6:56 AM in Overclocking Share Ayll November 29, 2012 6:13:30 AM Hi Forum, Half a year ago I set up my gaming comp, total overkill rig but lately I started doing bioinformatics and had to run some pretty CPU-tense programs so I was playing around with OC. My setup: IB 3570K AsRock Z77 Extreme 4 8GB DDR3 (forgot the brand) HD Radeon 7870 OC@1150/1400 w/ AMD Overdrive -> Cooling with a NZXT Havik fan I was gonna follow a well written manual overclocking guide, but I noticed the "Optimized Turbo OC", I simply tried 4.4GHz pre-set and Prime ran at max load gave me ~65C Cpu temperature. I am utter noob at this, is this an OK temp? Or is there other parameters i need to monitor as well. FYI I don't need every last drop of juice from my computer, but the more the merrier THank you for reading.
