post #18691 of 22487
I found out today why my overclock was stable in stress tests and not in game. My psu seems to have given up, as soon as the cpu and gpu are under load for some time, the pc will completely freeze and then shutdown and when my cpu is overclocked it will affect my gpu overclock and vice versa.

4) When you are referring to temperatures, voltages or other values it always best to post a screenshot from the monitoring tool you are getting these values from. The best monitoring tool available is HWiNFO64. Always use the latest beta. Hide / Disable monitoring of the arbitrary, erratic, values your motherboard (eventually) feeds it with.

I don't think that you should disable EIST.

I followed your x264 guide and my computer ended up shutting off and turning on on that 4.7GHz overclock reference you made. What voltage(s) should I alter to fix that stability issue?

Edit: Going to try x264 5 loops with my personalized 4.7GHz profile.

"My x264 guide"...?!

Excuse me, but I never created or suggested any x264 guide. In the my post that you've quoted I just give some general and well-known suggestions, and I link to two O/C guides, one of which happens to be the very popular GIGABYTE Z97X Overclocking Guide by Sin0822. This particular one might suite you nicely since you use a Gigabyte motherboard, as shown in your sig_rig.

By the way, I recall that you were having issues with intermittent restarts with your system or that you weren't able to boot. Have you resolved that issue? Is your system now functioning well?

When it comes to what voltages you should use, please a post a screenshot of HWiNFO64 where all the critical voltages will be shown under full load, so Vccin, Core VID, VCore, CPU Cache (Ring), CPU SA, and the temperatures, as well as all other values, and then I might be able to assist. Or at least, write them down. Sin0822's guide has everything you need to know, though.

Oh no, the boot loops on power on for bios is back again.. This was after I loaded up my 4.7 GHz OC profile. There must be some setting causing it to make my computer unable to boot up at all (stuck at BIOS, just keeps cycling with that tick sound, like when you hit the restart button constantly).

Anyway, I got it to boot again with my overclock, set the switch rate for VRIN and VCore to Auto instead of 300.00 KHz (I don't really remember what the setting was called.)

This did end up passing 5 loops. Should I be testing longer? Maximum temperature with all fans at max was about 83°C in realtemp.
Here are my Hwinfo64 after running x264 for a bit:


Edit: Currently troubleshooting boot loop issue, no matter what I do. It just happens. Issue seems to disappear if you don't shut down then turn on your computer in a short period of time. Going to stay on my 4.7 GHz profile for now.

It was setting an excessive VCore of 1.4V, which of course I never used, but observing this preset profile helped me set some of my settings, too.

And take 10 minutes to understand HWiNFO64 and remove any arbitrary values. Also, when posting your results state your ambient temp, too.

Good Luck! thumb.gif


This is excellent advice and the only true way to know what is going in with my motherboard, as opposed to just bumping values and hoping for no BSODs.

I did try to download X264 as well as WinRAR and avensyth. I couldn't get the program to open. I extracted it, ran as admin...even disabling UAC as instructed by the dev. Maybe I was overlooking something?

Anyways after failing to load x264, I decided to run the stress test on Intel Tuning Utility (as used by the OP) to get a general idea of my limits. I set the BIOS up based on your recommendations as well as the link provided by kl6mk6. I ran the stress and it shut down 20 minutes into. I bumped Vcore and few times to get it stable. Then I tried @ 4800 and ended up bumping to Vcore 1.325, where it seems stable enough to run a longer test. Don't know if I want to run that high of a Vcore for everyday use but I'm starting to see where she's topping out on my current rig.

I'm trying to upload screeshots but the function seems screwy right now and I haven't used my photobucket account in years...lol.

I used the x264 from the haswell overclocking guide, pretty straight forward, for the one edited. You'll see once you read through the information about x264 in that guide.

Ignore the values from the Intel Tuning Utility, the temps were about the only thing accurate. It posts the cpu voltage .015 lower than actual values.

Glad you made it.

Two IMPORTANT things:

1) Download the x264 V2 test from here: https://mega.nz/#!ywAFDQQQ!hEQCeRXDKpHoeRYEaspux3ZA9Smx6tp8h0leb7ZHdJo
Click "Download through your browser"

2) Get, please, the latest beta of HWiNFO64. Expand it to at least three (3) columns and then run your stress test. IF you wish, before stress testing, post some screenshots of the latest beta of HWiNFO64 here, and I will try to tell you which values are erratic/arbitrary, and thus you should Disable/Hide them. Use your system normally for 10 minutes before that.

Then post your screenshots. So, that the people will understand exactly what is going on.

Thank you.

One of your devices, most probably your motherboard, is faulty. RMA it the soonest. If I were you, and if this was still possible, I would replace it. Check out your PSU, as well. Just my 2c.

Please excuse my ignorance but I'm not sure what you mean by expanding columns in hwinfo64? There seems to be a lot of info in that program about my system specs. I do have the latest version.

I'll try the link and see if I can get x264 to work this time.
