Hi there guys,
Gonna post later today some pictures when I get back home but for the moment I need some advice...
I am running a delided i7-7700k and resealed with RTV with grizzly conductonaut under IHS and Gelid on IHS and NH-D14 as cooler + 1 NF-F12 industrialPPC-3000 for the RAM/VRM.
I am at 5.1 core 5.1 cache - 1.385V 2x16Gb Trident Z @ 3733 16-16-16-35 Cr1 / Mode 2 with 1.392v, 1.2125 SA 1.1625 VCCIO, MRC Boot and Fast Boot Disable, AVX 1, Everything else on Auto on a M8I.
Everything is stable (Cinebench, Aida64, RealBench, Memtest etc etc ) but for the life of it I can't make the Adaptive/ Offset work...
I keep OS in balanced mode, Core freq jumps up and down between 4.1 and 5.1 but volts don't move at all.
Whenever I try Adaptive or Offset the opposite happens no matter what...
It boots into windows...and I can open aida / cpuz and It shows 1.320 - 1/350....and as soon as I put some load on it it drops to 1.250 and BSOD's... Tryed LLC 3 up to 7 Load Ia dc to Auto or 0.01 etc..nothing works.
On top of everything I updated bios last night to latest release (3401 I think ) and Aida can not read Temps on CPU anymore and some other bugs (it is not a beta release)
can shed a bit of light...I know the later had a M8I.
NB. Sorry if I butchered some of those terms (MRC Boot or MR boot can't remember ) I am at work at the moment and don't have the bios in front of me.
I want first to try and get everything working how I want it to be (Volts going up and down as frequency ) and than I will try and tighten the Ram timings or shoot for lower volts.
Whatever you are about to suggest, do not suggest more volts anywhere as This is my limit till I get under water at the end of the month.
Temps are 80-83-77-75 under 1h RealBench ( might need to redo the delid)
CB score is 1115, Aida mem bench is 51 - 57 - 50 - 43ns
