Crashes / Freezes

Try putting the clocks back to stock speeds, if you were on the edge of stability it likely became unstable over time. 

If it fixes it, you know you just needed to dial back your OC a bit. Thermal paste transfers heat worse over time (hence needing to replace it) and the VRMs on a GPU/Motherboard can also age over time providing less stable overclocks.

hey, so lets get straight into it, just yesterday my pc has been acting weird it freezes whatever game, i play, and i can close it in task manager no problem, but other times, it freezes the whole pc.

i think your right, i am at the absolute limit of my overclock, 1 MHz more, and it crashes.

ill check if it works if i lower it down a bit.

Is that 1mhz more crash during just sitting at desktop, or is there a load applied?

 

I always use a stress test while overclocking. Prime95 for CPU overclocking (I'm on AMD so I can OC my CPU within windows) and MSI Kombustor for GPU overclocking. Makes sure it'll be stable no matter the load given in the future. 

 

If you're on Intel, just make sure to run Prime95 for 2-5 mins with each overclock increment and make sure you know where your BIOS wipe button/pins are since many boards will fail to post if you OC the CPU too far.

it was stable at 190 MHz for both cpu and gpu i used a benchmark, and it was stable at the time, no crashes. but anyway you helped me i lowered my overclock from 190 to 175 and it has not crashed once for me.

Thanks

Might be worth checking thermals via SpeedFan while under load, if you're over 80'c on CPU or GPU it might be time to change your thermal paste, then you can likely go back to the OC you had before.

CPU - 40C

MBU - 32C

GPU - 35C

SSD/HHD - 34C / 31C

 

Its All Fine

yee that's just your VRMs / other power delivery settling in. 

 

Just make sure you run a stress test when benchmarking like I mentioned before and you should be fine from here out :P
