Now here's my dilemma. I've been running P95 on Blend and I always crash with no error message of any kind nor a BOSD. Before, I got sum errors, rounding errors and Page fault non-paged area BOSD's and then I increased DRAM voltage and those problems subsided. But now, there's just a P95 crash. Am I to keep upping Vcore til P95 proves stable? I started at 1.225 and have been upping in 0.005 increments to the current 1.250v and I just dunno what to do if this Prime crashes as well.
I'm doing a Manual overclock, LLC set to Ultra high. Anything lower and my voltage actually drops lower than what I set in BIOS. Any ideas? Thanks in advance if you read all that lol x.x
I don't recommend doing for what malmental recommended.
I would stick to the guide for the time being.
First and foremost, as mentioned in the video guide:
-TEST your RAM on STOCK BIOS -> this eliminates you having RAM problems.
So here's what I suggest you do:
1. Re-download prime (latest version)
2. Make sure you have core temp and monitor your temps
3. Go to your bios - hit F5 and RESET to stock values
4. Get the RAM manufacturer specs (see sticker on ram) and input them in your bios: timings, voltage & speed - so if your specs are firstname.lastname@example.org, 11-11-11-28-2 - INPUT that directly into your bios - don't do XMP for the time being - as mal seaid - those ram specs are horrible...CL11 @ 1333 with 1.6...really no headroom and bottlenecking.
USUALLY I would suggest upping the voltage 0.05v on RAM if you have 4 sticks...but 1.6v is really the most I would ever want to go to.
5. If that passes, report back and then we will continue with the OC (make sure you enabled the two options in P95, as shown in the guide)
6. If it fails, do a memtest86+ via USB - if it comes with errors, RMA or chuck that given RAM in the bin lol.
