Wow, a promise for a fix and undervolting makes it better. I love how we are improving going backwards, it is so today.

Sorry for my negativity, it's just that I had to throw away another ruined light because of leaky modern batteries.Upset

they're talking about "under-volting", not "under-clocking".  this isn't really a surprise to me considering both cpu and gpu manufacturers typically pump too much voltage thru their procs at stock frequencies anyways. 

i begin all of my oc'ing by first finding the lowest voltage for stability at stock clocks.  i'll then increase frequency only until i reach instability and then decide whether or not to add voltage for further increased frequency and stability.

Doesn't everybody OC that way? I mean you have to know your OC like a back of your hand, which points need extra voltage and etc.

 you'd be surprised how many people and even system builders don't bother to under-volt at the beginning of their oc'ing procedure.  they just increase the multiplier from the stock settings w/o ever finding their particular proc's baseline.  most probably just hit the auto tune feature and call it a day with no stress/stability testing at all.

Thats just lazy , one has to know every aspect of one's oc otherwise IMHO one doesn't know one's limits in that oc, and headed towards all kinds of headaches specially with no stress test
