Windows 10: How to Overclock i5-4690k properly
It's not my first choice but it's work so far in terms of stability but I'm probably just going to have to read more and keep testing till I get a stable overclock manually.
I use to run an MSI Z77A-G45 with a 3770K, the OC Genie is pure garbage, do not use it.
Just my opinion, and Doug may say differently, but I never considered MSI a good choice for an OCing motherboard, I may have gotten to 5.1 GHz, but it took a lot of effort.
Describe why you think you are getting not so good game performance ? What are the problems ?
I have no problems with a Z77 board, so yours will be somewhat similar. I dont like the genie because it tends to put in high voltages. Just take your time and read through the guide
My CPU seems to be lacking, my idle load is at 40 percent and idle temps are about 40 to 50.
Before I used oc genie my system would have a hard time running newly released games at high or ultra, once I used oc genie it helped my performance. Now playing titanfall 2 if I play for an hour and a lot of things happen in game I get 1-3 second freezes for about a minute and it goes back to normal.
I had started thinking the CPU should just be replaced.
I had excellent gaming performance with a 4790K on my Sabertooth Z87
Is there anything I could get test results to see if the processor is operating properly?
You can run Intel Burn Test, Prime 95 etc
Just google cpu benchmark software.
I`d also run Atto on your Adata ssd and post a snip of the results.
Disk Benchmark Software | ATTO
Download ATTO Disk Benchmark 3.05
That test tests the hard drive/SSD not the CPU. To test the CPU try using the Intel Processor Diagnostic Test. Download IntelĀ® Processor Diagnostic Tool
Addram asked me to post a test of it.
Hello :) I wanted to try overclocking for the first time today, but I didnt come very far. After applying the overclock and restarting my PC, the whole screen goes black. Then I have to force restart my PC. After that Im getting sent to this screen...
Hi, I would like to overclock my CPU but I dont know what to do. Is their anything like MSI Afterburner but for CPUs. You can see what CPU I have in my System Spec.
This isn't a big deal at all, but I noticed in the main System screen that lists Windows edition and hardware etc, it lists my cpu @ 4.2 GHz, when it is actually OCed at 4.620 GHz. It is figuring the multiplier, but not the increase in FSB.
Here you can Post your Overclocks and Benchmark results!
I use an AMD FX-6300 and I was testing the MSI OC Genie on my mobo. Here's the results via CPU-Z.
Nothin amazing. :rolleyes:
I've always wanted to know how to overclock, but everything online looked so complicated and different from my mobo.
So here are some photos of what the OC section in my BIOS looks like. What should I change to get the most out of...
