Hi guys.
I have been searching for months trying to find out how to overclock my gaming rig. Is this the place to ask about an Asus 970 pro gaming aura?
I understand the risks and the potential rewards and have read everything I can find on how to overclock. I understand the theory but not the practice. Asus, in their infinite wisdom decided to name everything in my BIOS something different than any guides I can find.
I would be glad to include the details of my rig, but only after I can get a yea or nay as to whether I am in the right place.
Any responses are greatly appreciated. I have a detailed list of parts on ASUSTeK but can not get a response.
Thanks in advance!

Hi Dopeus

You're in the right place for overclocking, please list your pc specs including your cpu cooler and we'll get you overclocked. :)

Install these three programs.

1) ROG Realbench to test for stability.

2) ROG CPU-Z to monitor cpu voltage and frequency, scroll to the top of the page and click "setup" in the ROG version then click download now then click run.

3) Real Temp 3.70 for cpu temp monitoring.

yes what Nate said.

Also run a stress test / benchmark on default and post this with what Nate requested.
