GIGABYTE Z270 Overclocking Guide GIGABYTE 200 Series Overclocking Guide - Page 28

A quick way to fix this is to turn off the system and heat it up to -25C and then quickly bring back temps down to cold and start again . 90 % of the time , you will be able to get high clocks again but may not be able to get max clocks until full paste remount ( full CPU pot warm up , paste replacement etc ). We always prefer the full paste remount since it works better for us . If you see after some time that you start losing Mhz then it ’ s time to dry out your system and give it some time to recover and start again .
Potential issue : a few codes you might see on the diagnostic LED during overclocking
02 , 04 , and 06 : To solve the issue turn off your PSU and wait a few seconds and let the power drain from your system . Then switch it back on and turn on your system .
C4 : To solve the issue press the restart button on your motherboard .
Overclocking Software and Legacy O / S Support GIGABYTE TweakLauncher ( GTL ):
GIGABYTE Tweak launcher is an app to overclock in Windows . Below are things you should watch out for when using the application .
• We prefer to un-tick all the boxes (“ Clear all check ” option ) and tick only those which we use the most ( Cores and VCore ) each time we start the app .
• Un-tick PLL OC when you have it higher than 1.75V in the BIOS because it causes freezes when you re-apply it from GTL .
• For some Gaming motherboards which are missing the VCCPLL option in the BIOS you can apply it from here .
