I use Realbench for stable testing. With 4,5 GHz Realbench freezes. After that i can move my curser for some secounds over the screen and after that the PC does a reset. Maybe the Ram is not realy stable... but i run the XMP with a bit more voltage. 1,4V. XMP want 1,35 but this is not stable at all
Nope. 3000 is achievable thru 125 strap. You just might need a bit of VCCSA help.
And/or RAM tuning.
Faulty sticks can also ruin your OC. I have tested mine individually that proved it. Even went from stick to stick to slot to slot.
I believe people would advise you to stay away from XMP and leaving things on Auto. Esp the voltages.
3000 on 125 strap and manually entering the timings (you should of seen at least the primaries so start at that). Set tuning to manual if on Asus. Not XMP. Someone out here can ellaborate this better.
To test each stick, set XMP and run at stock CPU speeds, if a stick fails, RMA.

So I'm fine to stay with 4.2Ghz, only gaming at 1080p@144hz so even stock would be fine for that, just like the increase in encoding times..
Got my VCCSA lower by going back to 4.2Ghz from 4.3Ghz though
Yeah. Sometimes, you just have to accept things and force your self to stop gunning for higher clocks. It hurts the chip and will just require for more Voltages.Edited by mus1mus - 11/5/15 at 5:23am
