need help with overclocking

Recommended Posts

hello everyone!  :wave:

this is my first post on this site, i want to buy the ASRock B150M PRO4/Hyper motherboard to overclock an i5 6500. now the specs on the motherboard's page says that the motherboard has an external BCLK generator which should let me OC without being restricted by the BIOS updates. if i succeed in OCing the CPU, will i be able to read any of the CPU's temperature's? and is the AVX instruction set very important?

I do not see why not since all the bios revisions including the stock (original) supports CPU temperature readout. Unless I'm missing something new.

 

Not sure about AVX instructions.

Personally I would not disable or mess with AVX to possibly get a higher overclock,.. the instability hit would not be worth the small gain.  http://overclocking.guide/stability-testing-with-prime-95/

:withstupid: I remember disabling HT on my old 920 for a slightly higher overclock and just felt dirty inside lol

Some strict gamers that overclock disable HT all the time.  That's a lot different than disabling AVX though.

but then why buy an i7 when they'd just revert it to an i5 :lol:

I don't know. I guess they're hoping for better binned chips by getting the i7.  I wouldn't ever do it.  The minimal gain for specific situations isn't worth it to me for when I do video encoding.  I guess I could jump back and forth but.. why? 3 more fps?  :no:

If you're not familiar with OC'ng. I suggest NOT to mess around just yet. Play with it and get to know the HW you have. I personally don't think it's a good idea to "jump right in with 2 feet" a OC. ....slow down young gun. My advice is this; Know your parts. 

 

OCing isn't always better. Performance is what WE ALL NEED. after you get the performance, get the OC and let's push it!!! That's IMO of course....

I've never seen any evidence that disabling HT was ever good for gaming except for over a decade ago when OS scheduling wasn't as good.
