    Hi All,

    Don't know if anyone else has this problem. If I OC Asus Strix x 2 to +70gpu and +400mem 3dmark (Dx 11) locks up almost immediately.

    If I run Time spy with same OC - complete's run approx 12000 3dmarks.

    Same thing happens if I run a game in Dx 11 or Dx 12 - the Dx 11 will lock, the Dx 12 title runs as smooth as.

    Any ideas for a fix?

    Thanks, Nate.

    DX12 is easier on GPU power than DX11 so it lets a little higher clocks.
    You have simply oversteped your GPU oc threshold.
