My main question is, is my Phenom II x6 1045t @ 2.7 GHz bottlenecking my Zotac GTX 560 Ti OC. I see people running their games maxed out with completely stable FPS, mine IS maxed out, but it lags sometimes when there seems to be heavy processes going on. I can't overclock this CPU because it's an OEM build from HP. Specifically the HPE-410f. (Don't worry, I got a new Corsair 700 watt PSU)
OCing the GPU doesn't matter if it's in an OEM or Customized built PC.
As you're only OCing via software which is done pretty easy with eyes closed.
Also, he said

I tried overclocking it from 850 to 950 mhz, raised the voltage from 1000 to 1025 mV and the Piece of *** blue screened. The temps are fine and I get great airflow with all my extra fans. Excude my language, but i'm reading clocks of well over 1 ghz or at 1 ghz on here. It's too late to take it back now, so I just have to suck it up I guess. It's alright for what I'm trying to do. Even though this junk artifacts all the time.
(That's mostly a rant, I appologize. I just tested for artifacts on ATITool, and it blue screens. It makes me really angry.)
I max OC my GPU to 920/925 MHZ with 1400 memory clock, your voltage is too low. i set the voltage to 1149 mv, try this voltage and you should be stable.
Nah, it's alright, I'm scared to raise my voltage any more than it already is, my card is running at 45C idle. 67C max load. That's too warm idle in my opinion, so I don't want to raise it any more. I'm also scared of completely destroying the card, because I do NOT have another $250 lying around.
i have a 1045t running with a new hd 7850..
-idle is 45c, but that's according to bios.
-i just installed AC freezer7 and no noticeable temp changes
-i also have lags in performance w/ d3 esp
-im not happy with the temp range, but ive heard the bios can be wrong on my board
