cpu-1055t (should have gone black edition as the multiplier is locked at 14. supposedly i can get higher multiplier, but it applies to only 3x cores. i may have to go this direction) 125w. wish i went with the 95
mobo-ga-880ga-ud3h (has newest beta firmware f8i. should i revert back?) http://www.gigabyte.us/products/product-page.aspx?pid=3425#bios
mobo supports 16gb max. should i max it?
Support for DDR3 1866(OC)/1333/1066 MHz memory modules (Note 2)
cooler-Cooler Master's Hyper TX-supposedly insufficient for mult-icore processors. 92" vs 120" ie Cooler Master 212+. Clearly having heat issues however shutting down due to instability and not heat. Max says 62c and hitting 62c+ by +3 to +5 c
Ok here is the biggie
I was uneducated and still am when purchasing ram. Made the mistake not buying pre approved ram by my manufacture for oc. Chose different ram because it was significantly cheaper and the list was short. http://download.gigabyte.ru/memory/mb_memory_ga-880ga-ud3h.pdf
The ram I have is G.Skills F3-12800cl9-2gbrl http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231277
I then bought CORSAIR XMS 4GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 because it was cheap. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820233132
The timings on the g.skills are
9x9x9x25x40 t2 @ 1600
9x9x9x25x34 x @ 1370
8x8x8x22x31 @ 1218
7x7x7x20x27 @ 1066
The timings on the single stick of corsair is
9x9x9x249x34 @ 1332
8x8x8x22x30 @ 1184
6x6x6x16x23 @ 888
Possibly the ram i got is just wacky wack hard to oc/get stable idk http://www.overclock.net/t/1124040/solved-g-skill-f3-12800cl9-2gbnq
I read info that states latency is more important than ocing the ram, but i have read information that says oc ram and lower lat is fine. i know that oc and lowest lat is the best situation.
anyways I am trying to see if i can salvage this solution with the ram I have or i need to dump it and get new ram. If i do get new ram should i be going tripple chan 12gb or do the 16gb max.
I am also thinking about dropping the 1055t and try for a 1090.
