I just purchased an ASUS Rampage IV, i73930k, G.Skill Ripjaws 1866 Cl9. Corsair H80i. With overclocking option by my VENDOR.
Now, I wonder, cause since he demonstrated me this build computer, he showed that every overlocking change does force Windows to ask to get Re-Installed.
So, he concluded, that I usually need to install Windows AFTER overclocking.
I never heard anything like this. Is there something true about ?
Since he OC to 4,5Ghz or even 4,7Ghz with some standard Bios settings, CPU-Z showed up a dynamic changement of the Core Speed. Starting at 1200Mhz.
In my times I oc an longer time ago E6600 and I remember, that stable Multiplier Settings ended always up in better results than Turbo, or Asus "intelligent Dynamic Performance" options.
He told me, with the newer CPU generation, this has been changed and it's better to stay on "dynamic" or "turbo" option.
Is he correct ?
Thanks a lot dudes,
