Mr Jpmboy says - memtest86 is not a good enough test anymore. - mci memtest has a bootable cd option - just like memtest86 - pop it in and boot from it. thumb.gif

Thx for that, i now have that as i updated HWINFO, but i dont see VCCIO like you, did you rename it from IMC like others have done, cheers

Ah i see you have different board to me, i have ranger, maybe named differently on your board.

Only thing about using bootable HCI memtest is that it can't really replicate ram/cache in the windows environment. Great to use before loading the OS, but once you have, the standard version is probably better. If you want to test your ram in that wayu, Google Stressapptest is best:

"Google stressapp test via Linux Mint (or another compatible Linux disti) is the best memory
stress test available. Google use this stress test to evaluate memory stability of their servers
– nothing more needs to be said about how valid that makes this as a stress test tool.
Install Linux Mint from here: http://www.linuxmint.com/download.php
Install the Google Stress App test from here:
http://community.linuxmint.com/software/view/stressapptest
Once installed open “Terminal” and type the following:
stressapptest -W -s 3600
This will run the stressapp for one hour. The test will log any errors as it runs. This test is
more stringent than Memtest for DOS, Memtest for Windows and any other memory test
we have used so far."

Hey guys, I haven't posted in a few pages but my problem persists :
  • Motherboard throttles CPU like crazy via BD PROCHOT
  • When BD PROCHOT is disabled, computer shuts down after a few seconds of Prime95 small FFTs

I'm pretty sure the problem is with the motherboard's VRMs getting too hot and am looking to change my motherboard.

I posted a new thread asking for advice on choosing a Z170 ITX motherboard, since I apparently did a poor job the first time...

I didn't get any feedback in the new thread, but here are the 3 options I'm considering. I'd really appreciate feedback of any kind regarding these specific motherboards, or just the motherboard manufacturers in general.

Quote:
The ASUS Z170I PRO GAMING at 220$CAD. The red color accents are almost all on the heatsinks which I could remove and spray paint easily enough (there's a small red line on the PCB around the audio chips). And the USB3 header is on the edge of the board, not right in the middle like the Gigabyte board I currently have.

The MSI Z170I Gaming Pro AC at 255$CAD. This one has a lot of red accents on the PCB, which I dislike.

The EVGA Z170 Stinger is the most expensive option, at 280$CAD, and it doesn't have integrated wifi. It does have the black color scheme I'm looking for though.


I think I'm leaning towards the ASUS board, seeing as it's cheaper, more in-line with my color scheme than the MSI version, has built-in wifi, and is marketed with overclocking features and high-quality VRMs.

Is there any reason I should stay away from this ASUS board?

Mr Klutz0 - i haven't had any of these boards but if you need to go itx - i would bet asus is yur best choice - see if you can find any review on the board. smile.gif

linx mint is easy to install on sandy and hasewell - just as easy on skylake?
still you have to take the time and HD to instal it - maybe they'll come up with a windows version at some point?
I'm just being lazy I guess. smile.gif

yeah - that's the downside. It can be run off a bootable USB, but usually leads to more problems than it's worth. A small partition on an already installed HD will work... eh with HCI in windows, better to be lazy IMO. thumb.gif
