UEFI Bios overclocking? Safe to use?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Right now, I'm using an Asrock Z97M with a 4690k. I used one of the default overclock options. Now, in MSI Afterburner I can see my CPU is at 4199 MHz constantly. Min and Max are set to 4199. 

 

Is it okay to for my CPU to run like this all the time? I overclocked in hopes of reducing dropped encoding frames in OBS. It actually helped mitigate the problem, unless I'm placebo'd. 

 

If not, how else should I got about overclocking just a little bit.

If you're using one of the presets then pretty much it's recommended overclock and can be labeled as "safe" compared to the risks of manual overclocking, but then again, a lot of people would still recommend you overclock your CPU manually...

Yes, it's a preset. I am too stupid to do it myself. I just don't feel comfortable changing settings without really know what they mean.

 

Thanks for your reply, I have gotten mixed results from google.

Pretty much any research online will always get you mixed results since CPUs have different lifespans from each other and some are better than others... Welcome to the silicon lottery. 

But yea, pretty much if you want to overclock, just search for a tutorial online (e.g. How to overclock a 4690k) or study first on how overclocking works so you can be comfortable with tweaking those settings.

The asrock presets are fine, all you need to do after setting that preset is to slowly back off the core voltage.
