However here is a suggestion i think you should do if VIN increasing or decreasing doesn't help, save all your settings to a flash drive, or write them down, then reflash the BIOS, shut down the system, clear the CMOS, and load optimized defaults and try the X264. See what happens with that.
I did, it passed completely fine (well, i didn't reflash bios)
I primed for 14 hours with 7000mb RAM, error checking, rounding etc whatever enabled, on 1.34v 4.7, before i applied LLC extreme on VRIN (which made me need less volts for everything) but x264 failed in under a minute when i stopped priming at 14 hours. It's just like "oh, why did i bother doing that?"
Also if you don't have C1E, C3, C6/C7, and EIST, you need to update the BIOS, it came in maybe with the latest BIOSes. If you have F3 or F4 then it wont have it i think.
Which version would you reccomend? I'l have to go borrow a pen drive or something from someone. You think it'd make a difference?
And x264 doesn't use the igpu - i disabled it anyhow, to see if it helped, it didn't seem to change anything
It's not really the volts that frustrates me, it's that i have to add a ton on top of an OC that seems completely rock solid in everything (i 14 hour primed with 7000mb RAM on 5 mins per fft lengh for a reason) and then just instantly fails x264 unless i add 0.02-0.05v on top of what i need to pass everything else. With my last CPU, x264 held up completely fine on volts that had no chance of passing prime. My temps will be a lot cooler than stress test, but i dont really wanna run 1.345v or 1.35v for 4.7, when i can run 1.19v and pass 12 hour prime on 4.5, it just doesnt seem rightEdited by Cyro999 - 6/21/13 at 4:08pm
