Not sure the exact ram but its Corsair 1600
Zalman CNPS10X HSF
I need to do one more test but this is all I can get so far:
3.8 ghz at 1.15v. Temps are fine but at 3.9 ghz I cant boot into windows. I've raised voltage all the way up to 1.3v but still cant boot at 3.9 ghz.
I need to test if 3.8 ghz works at stock voltage, or whatever auto is, I guess thats not really stock?
Is it worth it to try a different G3258 or could it perhaps be my mobo that is limiting me? Or am I doing something else wrong?
Wow that's really odd, I haven't heard of a single chip that couldn't do 4GHz.
In your bios is there a way how to monitor your voltages to see if they''re running at the voltage you set?
And another thing is your Input or Eventual Voltage, what are they set to? I believe you might need to raise them slightly if they're too low, they can help you boot into Windows, and there's a couple more voltage settings including uncore.
I can point you to this guide, it's packed with information!

I've got quite a few games to test and likely more, on my list currently there's:
League of Legends
Guild Wars 2 (More comprehensive)
My other Borderlands 2 video uploaded awhile ago, I'll post it when I can.Edited by TopicClocker - 7/28/14 at 12:18pm
