I have recently started using a GA-970A-UD3 motherboard and it is working awesomely. Actually I am new at this stuff and I want your help. Actually I wanted to over clock my CPU for the first time.
To do so, I read a lot of posts and forums of which some were helpful and some were not. I have not yet over clocked it. So far I have just changed the CPU multiplier, VCore and the NB frequency.
I have attached the screenshot of what I am currently running:
I used prime95 for 6 hours to detect any errors if the over clock is not stable. Unfortunately an error was detected on 1 core at 4 hours.
Can anyone suggest how to remove that error?
Waiting for your suggestions.
Thanking you loads.
GA – 970A – UD3 motherboard problem
Here is a procedure to help you over clock your CPU:
First, you will need to understand that clocking is best done in the computer's BIOS. For some computers, you have the option of clocking by setting up a jumper but that may be a bit dangerous.
To get into your BIOS, you will press DEL when the computer is performing the POST.
In the screen that will come up, you can change the following: Front Side Bus, the memory timings as well as the CPU clock ratio.
When Overclocking, it is possible that the over clock may become unstable. What you need to do in this case is to reset the BIOS back to default and restart the Overclocking procedure. So in your case this might be the problem and therefore you should try restarting the procedure.
