    DP67BG Watchdog

      When trying to find my lowest voltage for the current overclocking frequency, during Prime95 stress test, my PC just shutdown and after 3-5 seconds powered itself back on. When I got into windows, i ran the Performance utility and it reverted back to defaults because of a bad overclock.

       

      First of all I would like to know if this is because of Watchdog.

       

      In my oppinion the watchdog should fire during boot not during stress. During stress test you usually get a rounding error from Prime or a BSOD from windows, and that is enough to tell you that your OC is wrong.

       

      If anyone has any experience with Watchdog behavior please post it.
