    Overclock Question ASUS Board Sandy Bridge

    alexdejesus Community Member

      The BIOS utility for the P8P67 Pro B3 Board has an EZ Mode that allows you to select from 3 performance presets: Powersaving, Normal, and Overclock mode. When I set it to Overclock, the system becomes unstable - won't bootup or will freeze during some operation.


      There is also a tool for overclocking from within Windows after bootup. Again, anything other than the stock setting causes instability.


      I had hoped to overclock the traditional manual way, but don't think it's a good idea if the presets don't work. I was wondering if anyone else had similar problems or should I disregard the presets.
