I've had some problems since i got my new mobo/cpu/ram 1,5 weeks ago, have some posts about it a few pages back, its now solved and want for future reference/help others to write a little down Issue:
New parts = overclock. As soon as i gotten my new parts i wanted to overclock. Got some nice overclocks. However, when doing x264 stresstest the cpu usage graph looked like
a heart monitor. Just up and down on usage all the time. And games crashed HARD. Didn't mater what game. More volt, less volt, vccio, vccsa nothing helped.Solution:
Tried other ram slots. Using 2x8gb by the way. Didn't help. Removed one ram chip, everything was fine :S Turns out i for some reason can't run in dual channel at all. As soon
as both ram chips are in the same channel its just fine...
Maybe not 100% skylake relevant, but i wanted to share in case other stumble over this issue
