Does anyone know what this particular error means? Do I just keep on upping the volts to get stable as I am wary that I am getting closer to 1.3v which is not a good thing right?
I am following Dub's video down to the T just for reference, if I need to post any more info let me know and if anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated
Any error in Prime95 means you are unstable, I don’t think the actual error will tell you specifically what the problem is. Usually it means more vCore, but you would have to be confident your ram and chip are stable at stock settings.
Have you had any runs of Prime95 for 12 hours with zero errors, stopped workers, or WHEA? There are chips that need more than 1.3v for 4.5 unfortunately, you could have one of those, but you won’t know until you finish testing.
Have you run memtest86+ overnight with those manual ram settings but your chip at stock settings? Have you tried running Prime95 with those settings as well?
