Is AIDA64 Extreme worth purchasing, or should I just continually get the trial version whenever I build a new system (every few years)? It seems to have a lot of neat stuff in there, and the Extreme version is rather inexpensive. I used it to test my cache as you suggested, and I got errors at 4.5GHz but was fine at 4.4GHz.
So I've got core and uncore at 1.2V each, with core running at 4.5GHz and uncore running at 4.4GHz. RAM is at 16-18-18-38-2T 3200MHz at 1.35V. Given my core temperatures are rarely past the low 70s (using HWBot, RealBench, or AIDA64), I'm wondering if I shouldn't try upping the core frequency even more...
Either way, I still would like to know:
* Should I have those other voltages set to Auto (PCH, PLL, etc.)?
* To get dynamic voltages based upon chip workload, I should set things to dynamic voltage in the BIOS and use voltage offsets, and now that I know what my final stable voltages are (assuming I don't tweak things further), I know what my offsets should be. However, I am still unclear on the other settings in the BIOS and in windows that are needed to run the dynamic voltage (cstates, etc.). I know what I changed to make the voltage constant, but I'm not sure which of those I need to switch back now that I know what my final values are.
It appears as though I've got a good CPU and chipset here, so I'd like to make them last!

I'm not sure either. Think it's to high? It spiked to 91c but holds in the low 80s but core max holds in the mid 70s
I have no idea what it is measuring so I cannot answer that question.Edited by stargate125645 - 2/29/16 at 8:21am
