I didn't believe it because after some adjustments I finally was able to run memtest86 (and HCI memtest in the boot CD version, too!) for whole days. But it seems that the desktop version of HCI is stressing the Ram much more and that showed my remaining system instability like after 5+ hours. I have different Ram now and have finally seen the 1000% mark for the first time.

What have I learned from it?
1. If your Ram isn't stable at default values on your board, get a different one.
2. More important: Listen to what experienced people have to say.

The stupid thing is: that is what I posted here for! But that is just me: I always have a hard time believing things I don't understand. And people don't like that, totally understandable.

So experiencing quite a relief I wanted to thank you and say I am sorry that I asked for advice and then dismissed it! Sorry.


No problem, although I don't think I was the only one telling you this. You and Deders were bouncing off each other and going in completely the wrong direction to the point of obscurity. Only other thing that you might want to take note of is using Google Stress App is a faster way of finding memory instability.

In my case I tried offset +0.010 and auto. Both cases vcore shoots up to 1.5+. Really annoyed since my last build, 2500k/P8P67 PRO vcore don't reach those levels. I really don't want my pc idling with vcore at a constant 1.29v.

Hmm Raja mentioned something about 1.50v being the upper boundary.

With my -0.08v/-0.06v offset I get 1.42/1.44v. With your +0.010 offset you got 1.5v+. Seems its intended behavior for avx workloads, just that I haven't given enough thought on the right figures to dial in. I'll wait for others to confirm Intel adaptive bug (separate issue) is fixed before I venture to try offset/adaptive again.

As a rule of thumb set 1.5v an upper limit for general use but if wanting to stress a lot with the heavier floating point side of things keep to around 1.4v.

Thanks Silent Scone, but to clarify are you saying for short bursts of avx workloads it's ok to touch 1.5v for awhile, but for longer heavier loads like running prime try keep to 1.4v+ and below?

I would be wary at 1.5v when running Prime yes. Not something I would subject my CPU to personally

Is there a working download location for the x264 CPU benchmark 5.0.1? From here I only get a broken archive with the 64bit exe missing. Tried to unpack on 3 different machines, one of which is even Win7.

I am using Windows 7. Not sure; I haven't changed anything around that specifically, so it's at the default, whatever that is.
