Not sure i understand what jittery means to you or unstable in AIDA64 , is the app getting laggy with user input ?
is it crashing or erroring and how does your scores show compared to others . (I don't use AIDA but I believe there are benchmarks ) .
Just when the benchmark is testing the window moves around a bit and sometimes stops responding. My scores seem ok though. Just weird..
So now your running dual channel memory, (2 slots used ) ?
No i'm just using one stick right now.. One stick died on me and i cant return the dead stick since they don't have anymore to exchange at the moment. I rma my good ram so it should be back next week. Is it ok that i use one stick right now for testing? It shouldn't change anything once i put in a second stick right?
Do you have any game BM you can run or just play and see how smooth and performance is , you could play them with vsync off and at lower res to tax the CPU a bit more .
Yeah ive ran a few BM and played a couple games and everything was good.
Another thing with AIDA , does it act the same at 4.5 or even stock with same memory settings .
If you want to test just memory you could run memtest or run prime95 with blend>custom and set memory amount to like 80% of system memory and run test. This will use more memory as the small FFT tend to stress CPU L1/L2 more .
The ram seems ok since i've been running prime95 for 24 hours a day on custom with 90% ram used and reducing voltage after 24hrs with no problems. I haven't tried other settings yet on aida though.
