Whats the best way to check for errors. I have done tons of testing with inconsistent results. All i know is i had whea errors once before reflashing (bios flash screen wasnt correct resolution) and another while mixing pll values. Both happened with +0.005v but im not sure what the pll was at for the 2nd whea error. Theres a couple things im gonna post, might take awhile to read but I would REALLY appriate the help.
1st) Before doing Win7 SP1 which included the AVX Intructions for Intel CPUS my offset gave me 1.264 max in Games and 1,248 in prime, after the update or while using windows 8 (containts AVX) The same Offset gave me 1.28v in prime and 1.264ish in games. Is this normal, is my MB Screwed up? I am using 75% LLC ( Ultra High )
2) How come I got whea errors once and my bios didn't have the right resolution, version 1802 gives me the high resoltuion flash screen but when I got the first whea errors afte the 24 hour run upon entering the bios I noticed it wasn't proper resolution, after reflashing I could not replicate the Whea errors after multiple 12 hour and 24 hour runs.
3) AI suite says I get around 1.276-1.278 with +0.005v and then says I get to 1.28-1.284 with +0.010v, there won't be any noticable difference life wise right?
4) I have ran alot of Prime95, I believe I overestimated by saying 500 hours but considering the vcore isn't that high and temps never got over 80c how much time do you think I killed off my chip, lets say 500 hours to be pessimistic.
5) Temp wise what difference should I expect from 1.7PLL to 1.8 PLL, nothing worth wasting time to see if its stable for and pulling out hair?
6) Whats your Steam ID, I owe you something small, this goes for anyone here that will take the time to help, I have been having alot of mental breakdowns and it keeps me up at night and away from what I want to do ( Gaming )
8) Okay say if I have no Wheas, no bsods after a few weeks of testing there is no reason to keep thinking about my votlage right? I keep thinking what if there are errors happening that I can't see, what if I could be getting a higher framerate with a higher vcore? There is no reason to think this right?

8) Considering my chip needs 1.28ish volts for stabilty in prime and 1.264/72 in games how is my chip compared to average? My old 3570k that I rma'd needed 1.356v for 4.4ghz and I know no chip is the same but is mine still below average?
If you could read that to make your final opinion that would be awesome. Really means alotEdited by maneil99 - 7/14/13 at 10:23pm
