My temps (I am talking about temp per Core not CPU temp) are oscilating within the range of 19-21 IDLE and 35-46 under heavy stress in IBT
. So I could say they are quite cool
What I have found out is that no matter I do my system won't be stable while running Prime95. It is perfectly stable running IBT 10-15 passes and stress level HIGH and when running LynX 20 passes (the same stress level like in IBT). I've checked my memory using MemTest
- 6 threads using 1100 MB of RAM each - it reached 300 % and no errors
Anyway I just don't know - maybe it is my CPU. Just it doesn't have much overclocking potential
Serial number is quite high so I just didn't have luck buying it.

I can't seem to get my memory ram to hit 1600, as should be compatible with the corsair vengeance 2x4GB kit I've got installed. I've tried setting everything manually, and ended with a 9-9-9-24-34 with 1T 1.65V, but on another site I read that I needed 9-9-9-24-41 2T 1.5V. I've tried both now, after having shut ecc memory off, I still can't get the ram to represent itself in CPU-Z, nor Bios or the AI. Does anyone have a tip or suggestion? I'm fairly new to all of this, and my research is only meeting me with failed attempts. I'm using Bios 0901 I believe, on windows 7 ultimate.
First of all try to manually bump up CPU/NB Voltage
to 1.3375 V
I run my rig and sometimes it gives a little help stabilizing the whole system and IMC.
I have to warn you that everything you do at your own risk.
As for the memory I got Crosair CMX8GX3M2A2000C9
so theoretically they should be able to run with speed of 2000 MHz (didn't check it though).
At the moment I am at 1800 MHz with timings like this - from the top of Dram Timing Control section in Bios:
You should be able to run your memory at least with 8-9-8-24-36 1T timings.
Which banks on your motherboard are occupied ? Dimm A2 and B2?
