Is it bad to keep changing BCLK Frequency?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So I'm pretty new to overclocking and decided to go ahead and try it by changing the BCLK Frequency (changed it to 105) . I did find a massive performance increase in games but now temps are really high just using chrome. Is it bad to keep changing the frequency because I'm thinking of having it set high when I know i'll be playing games and then lowering it back to 100 when I know i wont be playing?

If you overclock, you'd better take over the voltage controls to keep thermals in check, not changing BCLK every time you dont need the performance. You're not targeting the correct cause of problem.

don't think it'll hurt the lifespan of your build, most modern mobos have profiles, just load them if you don't need the performance, make sure your voltages are optimized. i have a 1.05v 4.4ghz 95w (my mobo doesn't let me go under 1v) profile that i use most of the time and a 180w 1.38v 4.9 profile i use for certain games.
