I have overclocked my system to 4.8GHz@1.41V using the guidelines shown by JJ in this video:
The memory is Corsair dominator GT and is at default set by XMP.
I am able to boot and run AIDA64 stability test for 30min with no problems. Maximum temp is 71°C.
The problem is that when running games (e. g. Crysis 2) sometimes the computer freezes completely (after like 1hour).
I am able to reproduce this freeze if I run Unigine Heaven 11 for 1hour too.
When I run at stock speeds apparently no freezes occur.
When I updated all the mobo drivers from Asus website I got bsods while gaming instead of the freeze:
Then I did a system restore and came back to the original drivers.
Can you help me to get this overclock stable?
Here are my specs:
Asus P9x79 Deluxe
4 x 4GB Corsair Dominator GT 2133MHz
Corsair GT 120GB SSD
Custom loop watercooler (Block EK Supremacy, Rad XSPC EX360, Swiftech mcp655 pump, EK advanced reservoir)
Corsair AX1200 PSU
HAF-X Coolermaster case
