A64 was free for me.... :scared:

I'm not suggesting people don't use it. I'm just explaining why I don't

I know.
I was just explaining why prime95 is preferred over AIDA64 most of the time.

Well I have just had something unfortunate happen. It appears there is some faulty wiring in my house. A light was switched on in the same room that I pull power for my projector while me and the boys were watching some youtube. The circuit breaker was thrown, so I went to switch it back on. The damage seems more like a lightning strike. Whatever voltage spike that killed the projector must have traveled across HDMI and took out my 7850, and possibly some of the pci slots on the ext4. mad.gif

i'm getting some ripjawsX and we'll see. if the issue persists, i'm never buying Asrock again.

The OC Formula is the one good board they have, not sure how much difference the memory will make, but mid range corsair vengeance ram is pretty bottom of the barrel for memory.
I see in previous posts you are using Nick's preloaded profiles, I would start overclocking from scratch. I don't have the OC formula to see myself, but if Nick's profiles are anything like Shamino's profiles on the ROG boards, they could have settings preloaded for 6Ghz + overclocks (possibly too much for a daily OC).

I've found the preloaded profiles are a good place to start. I set it and then go through it and change the values I need to to get the system stable. Also gives me an idea of where to start with the more unfamiliar settings

don't give up. it took me a very long time to get it stable at 47 when loaded under p95 AND with 12.288GB of 16GB ram committed to the stress test.

something like 45 should be simple. try first clr cmos. then set all parameter as described on pg 1 of trhis thread. The OP did an outstanding job of detailing key settings for offset. before delidding and watercooling (yes - the stock heatsink1) this worked for 45.

Dram on AUTO
Offset @ +10mV
Turbo @ +23mV
iPLL OFF
LLC 3
(everything else on AUTO)

IBT was 1.208 using open hardware monitor, and 1.196 using a DMM (temps were in the 90s! very quick - !)
P95 stable with 85% of 8G committed. (2133, Cl 11, 1.6V (HyperX)... I added two more sticks and it worked too.


your voltages may vary some, but 45 should come easy. once I dellided this chip, the stock HS worked fine temps < 88C.

i liked my previous Asrock board a lot to be honest, a P67 Extreme6. overclocked my 2500k very well (ran @ 4.8ghz 24/7 on a NH-D14), using the same Corsair mems.
i've also tried from scratch, without using Nick's profiles as basis, and still couldn't get the mems stable at only 4.4ghz even tho they're very stable at 4.3

i'm not giving up just yet, but getting new mems cause these Corsair ones are frustrating the **** out of me. hopefully it will be better with them. we'll see, i'll be reporting back for sure.

I have had zero problem with prime, but I use it more than most. I do 24 hours with default torture test settings, but the memory used raised to at least 90% of available. Then when I switch to offset mode I do another 24 hours. While the tests are running I have event viewer up to check for WHEA or anything else that pops up, and I don’t use the machines or ask them to do anything else while the tests are running. Just my two cents.

ok ran 4.6 for 4 hours with no errors.. trying to get a stable 4.7 i go alright till i hit the 10 mins mark with an error. my settings atm is

core voltage in cpu-z: 1.136v
turbo: +.039v
offset: +.05v
cpu pll: 1.89v
temps at: 58 max
internal pll ovrvoltage: enabled

since i can get go steady for at least 10mins does it mean i have a chance to get it stable with a little more tweaking or ive hit my limit.?

EDIT: all other settings are set to what the OC guide says on page 1.
