hey guys i have a Phenom IIx4 940 BE 3 Ghz CPU and its normal base clock is 200 and multiplier is 15. When i play games i have mini freezes all the time but no problem when i m not playing a game. But if i lower the multiplier to 13 and make it 2600 Mhz , i have no freezes at all. There wasnt a problem like this before, this happened after i used the Auto Tune in AMD Overdrive section of AMD Vision Engine Control Center.That program tried till 3700 mhz and when it s 3700 mhz my computer freezed. My cpu s burned or something what s the problem here? And there s a chance that CPU Overdrive Auto Tune made and dmg to my graphics card GPU? I be happy if u help guys thanks.

If you are going to "Overclock", it is a good idea to have a high performance CPU cooler. Also use Arctic Silver 5 thermal paste.

Burn test and core temp.  Use them.  If your CPU overheats it throttles back to avoid overheating.  Not saying that is the cause of your problem, but it is a place to start.

I did used Hwmonitor. Played Grid 2 on 2400(200x13)MHZ, on Auto (200x15) and on 3400 (200x17)Mhz. There was no small freezes on 2400 mhz but on auto and 3400 mhz there were freezes tho they started after 4-5 mins of gaming. Min numbers on Hwmonitor is while on idle and max numbers are gaming.

From the max temps I see, it has to throttling down.  Input from other posters would be appreciated .

 

What sort of cooler are you using?

It's most likely a temperature issue seeing as your temps are quite high. I'd recommend getting a decent cpu cooler and maybe some Icy Diamond or Arctic Silver thermal paste. Here's a great cooler for the money: Hyper 212 Evo and here's some thermal paste: Arctic Silver 5 (Expensive but there's a lot in the tube and it's really good stuff.)
