Stood the same between auto and disabled. Also had to bump up the initial voltage a little bit after encountering instability while playing LCPDFR on IV, still hitting a max of 1.496v so far according to HWMonitor. Honestly I think it just has something to do with this board. Really wish it had something to adjust the offset or how effective LLC is.

Quick question, pretty sure I know the answer to this.

CPU Voltage is most likely the culprit of sudden system instability while playing GTA IV, correct? Like for example I'll be playing and a few minutes in it'll stop working, close, then computer will start acting strange; Chrome experiencing errors upon every open until restart. I upped the voltage a bit and stress testing. Let me know if there is anything else that may be causing this. Maybe NB voltage? Currently have it at default (1.1000).

Yea, or you should check your ram timing...make sure you set it to default. I'm stable at 4.2 Ghz just by upping multipliers, but anything more would make the system unstable and experience symptoms you described above. I guess you could experiment a bit with the voltage. I kept my voltage at stock which is 1.475, so that might explain the situation.

I noticed afterwards when I was browsing through BIOS settings that the memory was running under 1600 when that's what it's supposed to be. Set it to that with same voltage but no success with IBT. Upped the voltage even higher, hopefully it works and passes through fine (Maximum stress with 10 passes).
