Ambients were 67F, I take it?
Or were you running in the oven? biggrin.gif

I would start with putting your ram on the specced settings. 1866 + the timings that are on the stickers on the modules.
And then start from scratch.
Now you are playing with 2 things at once.

cheers!

Fan on the back of the board helps allot, true.
Mine lowered the socket temp for like a good 10c.

Can you fill out your rig in your sig more completely?
I think you reached the limit your cooling can take, but I can't recall which cooler you have...

Good luck on making it rock solid.

I've had what I thought was a stable overclock for the past couple months, except I had an unexpected Windows shutdown yesterday.

Out of curiosity I decided to burn test my overclock with turbo setup again by using Prime95 on a single core.

After about 2 hours I got: ERROR: ILLEGAL SUMOUT repeated across 3 pages (all at the same time stamp) before Prime95 stopped.
I've never seen that before. Does the specific error mean anything or do I just test some more voltage?

Edit: The Vcore already peaked at 1.404v so I instead decided to lower the half turbo multipler to 19.5x (4.6ghz instead of 4.7ghz). So far 4 hours stable. Seems a shame, but I'm sure as infrequently as half turbo engages 118mhz isn't going to make any difference.
Edit 2: 6 hours fine. Stopping testing for now. I'd still like to know if the weird error from Prime95 means somethings specific.

I don't know about the specified error you are talking about.
But usually I just see it like this: any error, whatever type, code, number... = unstable

So yeah. You probably need more voltage.

What is your non-turbo clock? You only talk about a 4.6 turbo clock.
I know for sure mine likes some more juice then 1.404v for a 4.6 clock.

Can you post a SS of a IBT-avx run?

I have temperatures issues in my case for now so I only keep my base speed at 4.1ghz (17.5x236). With the voltage set to -.01875v offset, it's nice and cool even when the turbo kicks in. The 4.1ghz is 24 hour stable with less voltage than that. It's just difficult to burn test turbo and I thought I had done it well enough. Apparently not.

4.1 may not be much, but when it isn't idling to save power under regular light/medium use (which is most of the time) it's usually at full turbo speed (4.4ghz) with occasional spikes to half turbo. I've seen turbo kick in under heavy use as well.

It's a good compromise when heat or voltage is an issue.

Ahh, ok.
Yeah thats nice of the turbo feature.

If you want to go higher I highly recommend getting a better cooler though.
It's mentioned allot of times here, the 212 just doesn't cut it with these hot-head 8-cores.

I don't know if it is the 212's fault or not, but my biggest problem is my socket runs 15 degrees hotter than the CPU. That's been my limiting factor. Additional fans in the case, on the mobo sinks, etc. don't help. Probably need a new case or to cut a hole in back.

Cut a hole in the back of the case. Most mb's have a heat sink on the back. A fan on this area will improve temps big time!!

This.
I have done this with my case and it helped allot. Can't find screenshots of before and after but I think it was a good 10c cooler after adding a fan to the back of the socket.

Lined things out


Took out the dremel


Filling things down


And the results.



This was a run from when I just had my custom loop together:

Just a 4.7 clock, no turbo
