It's possible its just the break in period you're experiencing. I'm seeing the same thing right now running 4.7, i originally had it at 1.415v. And after a week i got 1 whea error late at night playing an older MMO. 2 days later i got another whea error (after bumping the voltage .005v) around the same time, on the same game. I'm gonna keep tabs on it though. Cause ive ran 24hr Prime 95 custom blends using 90% of my ram and get 0 errors, have run IBT on custom for 20 runs and get no whea errors. Might just be a false positive from a 15 year old MMO
My temps are absolutely in check. Idling with a 24/7 1.420v @ 4.7 I'm at 28-31c accross all cores lol. Gaming even when the ambient gets warm i hit 58c max. I have a massive amount of wiggle room to bump my voltage or my OC if i really care
I can do 4.8, but it requires 1.520v+ (My temps are still insanely good at that voltage too). Max on P95 custom blend after 4hrs was around 76cEdited by EnthusiastG4m3r - 7/24/13 at 10:18am
