Recently during gaming sessions I see that the CPU reaches 89-100% usage causing my game to lag for a couple of seconds every couple of minutes, I got told it's worth OC'ing as my processor is getting quite old compared to newer ones. How would I go about OC'ing, i've never done and hence why I come here for help off professionals
I've turned prime95 on for a couple of minutes now while having all of the things on the startbar open and i'm getting around 50 degrees on stock clocks etc, is it even safe for me to OC with these temperatures as i've not got a clue in the slightest.
Alright thanks for this, i'm playing Farcry 3 right now and i'm at around 59-61 degrees, is it still worth overclocking? I'll keep the voltage stock at 1.35V but raise the multiplier at x18 for an apparent stable 3.6Ghz.
id stop playing right now i think amd list the safe limit for that cpu as 62c ive just noticed you said prime95 for a few minutes you need to do around an hour anyway for a decent test but you don't ever want to reach over 60c on full load,
you may need to look into your cooling system as to why such high temperatures on stock clocks
