Hi all. Thanks in advance to the wealth of knowledge I have found here I am approx 1 week into OC'ing this rig I just upgraded. Steep but interesting learning curve. I noticed cpu-z showed my RAM at 400 instead of 667 after I uploaded this. Accordingly I made some adjustments. I just ran PRIME for 90 mins @ 4.5Ghz.. Test ended with an ERROR: ILLEGAL SUMOUT. One of the cores spiked above 70C & shut down the worker. Surprisingly system remained stable. I was able to shut down PRIME. Other than the 1 temperature spike CPUv TIN stayed between 58C - 65C. I'm able to use the system while PRIMING without notice or adversely impacting temperature. I'm so pleased I want to know what else I can do lol

Currently:
CPUv 1.5125
CPU NB 1.1750v

FYI: I like the GUI in OCCT & the ability to set cut off limits on each core as well as the CPU TIN. I prefer the test abort than overheat CPU and/or reboot unexpectedly. Also I'd rather not physically monitor each test configuration likely to push temps to the limit. Once I suspect a configuration will work I test it again in PRIME & let OCCT monitor/record PRIME stress test. I find their temps are within 1 degree if not the same as HWMonitor most of the time and always within 3. Plus OCCT updates more often and records changes less than 1 degree.

PRIME fluctuates CPU between 2Ghz - 6.7Ghz using the APM. However my normal use and/or opening every program on the system simultaneously/consecutively keeps the CPU nicely around 4.5Ghz. I will still compare it with 4.4Ghz after I add a little more NBv. I reached these levels of stability manipulating only CPU Multiplier, CPUv DRAM and CPU NBv. I hope that the more experienced minds here can advise other settings that would be more effective?

The following are stock benchmarks from PRIME and results from the two (2) aforementioned PRIME stress tests. Let me know if you need any further info omitted.
