Hello, I have an issue overclocking my CPU
Specs: 8600k 212 EVO cpu cooler Asrock z370m Pro 4 Samsung M.2 ssd Gtx 1070 Seasonic SSR-550FX 550W 80+ Gold
I had my CPU running at4.7 ghz stable (standard voltage) under prime 95 stress test. I decided to push it to 5.0 Ghz based on settings from a youtube video ( slight voltage bump and some other settings, nothing crazy). So, at 5.0 GHz prime 95 gave me hardware failure error. I decided to restart and decreased it to my stable 4.7 Ghz, but it gives me hardware failure error as well. I am only able to push up to 4.5 Ghz stable now.
Whats failing? CPU, Motherboard or PSU?
