I'm surprised the chip needs 1.328v for 4.4GHz though, that is below average from the forum posts I've seen. Have you tried backing your RAM off, just running one stick etc. to make sure that is not affecting the OC?
Thanks for the reply, thought it was going well until I got some BSOD running prime95. It is now stable upping the offset one notch to .08 giving me a Vcore of 1.336 LLC HIGH (50%) Its been folding for about 20hours with no problems (max temp 72)
Prime temps will be somewhat higher.
When my offset was lower I would get CTD in games like Borderlands 2 , since highing the Vcore it is stable, since gaming are not stressing my cores to much my temps are nice and low.
I will try and run with one stick and swap it around to seee if the memory is the problem, and when reduce my Vcore back to about 1.3.
Took one stick out and reduced my Vcore down to 1.32 and it seems to be holding fine up to now, temps are high 60s running prime95.
Also Furmark runs without crashing which it always did before
So do you think I should RMA the memory ?
RMA'ing the memory . Anyone recommend some good memory for my Asus P8Z77-I here in the UK ?Edited by Darkmoonshine - 10/2/12 at 11:10am
