I've been messing with the Stress Level size, it works with 128MB size but gives me error with 64MB size.
Running 5 tests at Standard level gives me error while running 10 tests works.
I'm running everything stock (minus the memory, which I couldn't run all four of them at full bandwidth because apparently the FX-8320 controller can only handle 1 chip at 1866Mhz per channel).
Mobo: Gigabyte 970A-UD3P
Memory: 4x 4Gb Kingston HyperX 1866Mhz CL10
PSU: OCZ StealthXStream 600W
OS: Windows 8.1 pro 64-bit.
Does this makes any sense? What the hell?
Also, while writing this post I noticed the "VR T1" and "VR T2" temperature sensors catching a pretty high number on HWiNFO. Anyone know what is it?
Based on what I see there (a few things)
You are running much too high of voltage for that clock speed (which is not the reason for the error in my opinion, but is the cause of the socket temp)
The TR1 and 2 temps you are seeing are for your socket.... Your VRM temp will also contribute to your socket temp. In the case of the UD3P, the power phase is a good design, and most of the time, a little too good for the heatsink it uses, which is much smaller than the 990's and also lacks a heat-pipe.
If you are planning on running stock clocks, I would reduce your voltage and you will see that socket temp go way down.
If you plan to overclock, 1.4v is a good place to start testing. The socket can go into the 80's without a fan, but should be fine.
The error you are getting appears to be a stability issue not related to core/voltage. I am guessing you are have RAM issues.
Try running only 2 DIMMs at the stock XMP profiles, and increase voltage to 1.65v for stability if needed.
Sometimes our AMD's like a little extra RAM voltage to work at rated timings, and even when not, the additional voltage gives you some headroom to reduce timings.
