Cant quite figure it out. OC help

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello all, i seek your wisdom

Weird issue where ive been gaming all day and not till later that night do i start restarting. Can barely be in Arma 3 and it restarts anywhere from 3sec - 1min.

Last week I was clocked at 4.3 mhz and 1.400v, and it played fine all day and then started acting up late that night. Tried GTA 5, Squad, ran CPU test etc and was fine...loaded Arma 3 and did the same thing ..that overclock style immediate restart.

So i decided ok, must not be stable OC so i started raising the voltage...in 005 increments. rinse and repeat until i was didnt crash anymore. It was when I got to 1.500v's im going ok..this cant be a voltage problem...this is to high. So to be safe...

I went back to my last stable OC (at least i thought so)....went back to 4.2 mhz @ 1.350v. Played Arma 3 all day yesterday no problems....today toward the late hours....and now its doing the same thing again.

Tried reinstalling Arma 3, just in case. and lasted 5 minutes and it shut down and restarted again. Im at a loss, below are my specs.

Intel I7 4820k 3.7mhz stock clocked at 4.2mhz @ 1.360v single radiator liquid cooled.
MSI X79A GD45 Plus Motherboard
32 gigs of ramm Kingston
msi gaming 1070gtx
800w psu

intel turbo off, enhanced turbo off.
only using multiplayer and voltage
c1E support and c state i believe are off

I would like to go back to the 4.3 clock, 1.500v just seems high and i wanna make sure its just me needing to raise the voltage and keep going or maybe because im new to OC i didnt turn something off in the bios i should have turned off.


thanks in advance

That's a lot RAM. What frequency is it running at? If it's running higher than the supported frequencies of the chip (1866mhz probably?) then maybe try drop it back to 1600mhz (if your kit is higher than 1866mhz, maybe look up an equivalent kingston kit @ 1600mhz and get it's timings).

Might at least rule out addressing so much RAM as the issue.

I think the system agent (VCCSA) voltage needs a bump due to the high amounts of RAM being used.
