lol, it's time to reformat. you don't wanna risk having your firmware or bios patched and autoloading/encrypting your drives
or worse having it run far more power than the pc can handle and causing a fire/cancer from components catching fire
in other news i got a new hs&f finaly, can push my chip to 1.55v before hitting my thermal limit (long as my ambient doesn't get uncomfortably high)
sadly i can't get past 4.4ghz because of that last module being so worthless.
tried 1.6v briefly but it still threw errors past 4.4ghz still.
i was able to boot into 5ghz though, which was nice to see until it bluescreened.
even better, now i can achieve 4.7ghz when using 6 cores, and 4.8ghz when using only 4cores. i could push the voltage higher than 1.55v when using less than 8 cores, because the heat/power output plummets, yet i haven't bothered to test with higher voltages on less cores and simply tried to see how fast 1.55v could achieve.
really don't see the point in running at such high volts though. chances of overheating/degrading/breaking something skyrockets and i barely get more than a few hundred mhz more.
oddly enough even with my new cooler i can't get 4.1ghz stable under 1.5v, which is really strange considering i can push 4.3ghz stable at those volts.
anyone else have experience with one module group being a complete dud, holding back the rest of the chip?
