So I just started exploring the idea of oc'ing and did a little research. The main guide I found gave some beginning steps to download hwmonitor and prime95. run them side by side and see what the default settings can do. my system crashed. i tried 3 times. first crash happend at about 2 minutes. 2nd and 3rd crash happened seconds after starting the test. what am i doing wrong, what can i change?
this is my set up
asus mb z97-A
nvidia geforce gtx 1080
corsair ddr3 1600 (800MHz)
if you need any other info, let me know. I want to understand why my build is crashing and if there is anything that i can do to help. thanks guys.
