Turning off overclocking.

    Turning off overclocking.

    Got a gigabyte card. Came with an intel core i53470, 3.2ghz, overclocked to 3.6. I have some problems, and everyone is telling me to turn it off.
    So I'm in the Gigabyte UEFI DualBIOS Screen, looking at the M.I.T. menu, and it doesn't let me change anything. How do i undo the overclocking?

    Nevermind I found it. there's a submenu underneath advanced frequency settings i guess, and i disabled the turbo boost technology.

    Turbo Boost is not really OC. If you would run the CPU on more then 3.6GHz, then it would be OC.
