Revert Overclocking

Once of the main causes of the Valheim Unity error is overclocking of the CPU or GPU. If you are using third-party software like MSI Afterburner to overclock the CPU or GPU, it must be disabled. Turbo boosting features need to be disabled as well from the BIOS. Ensure that the game runs without overclocking.

Go to the computers BIOS settings and disable the ‘Intel Turbo Booster’ if you have it enabled. To prevent the game from crashing, you should reset the CPU and GPU to chipset manufacturer specifications.

Underclock RAM & GPU

You must note that even when you have not manually overclocked the GPU or RAM, it may still be factory overclocked. Hence, you must Underclock the RAM and GPU. If you are using a software to overclock the GPU, disable the software and revert the settings. To Underclock the RAM, you can do it via the BIOS.

This fix is for advanced users and if you don’t know what you are doing, don’t try it.

  1. Click on the battery icon in the System Tray and drag the button to Best Performance
  2. Right-click on the battery icon and select Power Options
