UPDATE: Looks like 4.4ghz is the highest I can go, with Prime95 being able to pass. I kept bumping the voltage at 4.5ghz up to 1.496, but was still not able to run for more than 20 min or so. The highest the CPU temp got was 55c also.

So I decided to try overclocking only using IBT and OCCT as stress tests. I set it at 4.5ghz, 1.44v. Ran OCCT for 20 min, then 1 hour, then 5 hours, followed by 20 runs of IBT at the very high setting. No issues on either.

Currently running at 4.6ghz, 1.46v. Tested with the same set of test listed above. Once again all passed fine. However I did have to drop the RAM speed to 1333 form 1600. Is the extra 200mhz on the CPU worth the drop in ram speed? Looking for some input on this as i dont have much experience with over/underclocking RAM

I had a similar experience with P95 and could not run it. Sometimes it would last for a few minutes but mostly it just lasted for a few seconds. OCCT and IBT AVX work much better.

You had to drop the ram speed? That does not sound right at all and you do want that extra ram speed. Have you bumped the ram voltage to 1.6volts?

The 990 gaming tends to run a little low on NB voltage. I had to set mine to 1.25 in bios in order to pass IBT AVX at 5 ghz on the 8370e. You might try bumping yours a bit ( at your own risk of course)

RAM is running at 1.52v. Its rated at 1.5, is 1.6 safe? This is the RAM kit. Also I should have specified that when I set the RAM at 1600 the PC will not POST until i clear the CMOS

NB currently set at 1.21 if I remember correctly. Do you happen to know the max safe voltage that the NB can run at? Someone on another forum said that this NB is very unforgiving if you set the voltage to high, i.e. permanent board failure.

Ram will be fine, personally I'd set it at 1.65 volts and see what happens.
Normally it's not necessary to change the NB voltage, but my 990 gaming's seem to respond to it . I'd set it to auto with the ram at 1.65 and see what happens first, then consider bumping it or the cpu/nb.

What are your cpu multiplier and cpu bus settings?

I'll give that a try and report back.

CPU is at 200x23
