stability questions

post #1 of 10

So I have this problem that i'm not how to fix. Right now my cpu is OCed to 4.6ghz @ 1.39v. When I boot up sometimes it'll get stuck in a boot cycle before it reaches the end of the bios and sometimes it'll get stuck when trying to load windows. However once it boots up it runs fine. I ran it overnight with p95 running with no issues. My standard set of games I play also have no issues after hours of use.

I thought maybe it was a voltage issue so i bumped it up (a few times now) and it still has that same issue on boot up.

Any suggestions on how to fix this?

For starters, I would watch temps and avoid bumping up voltage without a specific reason (like a BSOD code indicating voltage as the issue). I would test with a few other programs- I like Prime95 as well but have had instances where it will run 24 hours without issue and another program locks it up in 5 minutes.

What test are you running in prime? Blend..etc

I would try stress testing with Intel Burn test, Linx and change the settings to test your memory as well.

Are you using offset (dynamic) or manual voltage? Which LLC setting are you using? Is 1.39V what you set in BIOS, or what you get while under load with prime95? I know with LLC disabled on my board, setting the voltage in BIOS to 1.4V only gets me a 1.272V load voltage.

your volts for that clock is way too high.. I can run mine at 4.8ghz with that..

i would suggest that you turn back all the oc settings to defaults and start with the cpu ratio and multiplier with the LLC level down to 1-2 (whichever the setting that doesnt drop the vcore to a huge amount, so that you can manipulate your desired volts easily).. if you cannot boot with that settings, try enabling the ppl overvoltage, though it is normally used for 4.7ghz and up..

I normally leave it on the default selected test so it would be blend. Sometimes I'll run it on small fft. the overnight test was blend though.

EDIT: well my with this setup peak at 71C. I usually have realtemp running when ever i'm doing anything stressful.

manual voltage. usually it'll sit a little bit below but 1.39 is what is set in bios. llc (msi's equivalent is vdroop control i think) is set to low vdroop. all the other voltage controls are set to auto.

EDIT: I switched it back to 1.37v in bios since the extra volts weren't doing anything except make it run hotter. right now cpu-z reads 1.368v

Well i had it originally at 1.37v with it running fine except for the boot issue so i stepped it up incrementally trying to solve it to no avail.

it turns complete off then reboots but only does that if it's stuck at the bios stage. Windows itself doesn't crash but it gets stuck at the stage just before windows loads.

I had this before but mostly because manytimes of BSOD while testing my procie, its like OS corrupt... when u do often BSOD it could corrupts OS, so after i got stable oc for mysystem i re-install OS and no more lagging or endless loop while loading OS

hmmm, maybe but i'm having my doubts. I returned everything back to stock settings and i'm not having the boot issues anymore so i'm fairly certain it's whatever i did to it.
