using the flare X at 3.2ghz cl14 unless i unplug the power cord i have no issues with cold boots i can leave it however long i want and it works if i do unplug it then i get a simple fail oc settings i go in bios n restart n it goes into correct settings no issues after
i very randomly get a black screen crash its not very repeatable but it happends
i could be playing games for hours straight no issues n then black screen crash
i found before when i had 16gb corsair dominator 2400mhz CL10 kit i had to run at 2133 to run stable but i got no crashes
id assume i get no issues if i ran at 2133 but meh it doesnt happen often enough to bother me tho i would like it to stop
im assuming its related to the pch overheating tho... my temps will climb over 60 and in the previous bios it would crash on overheat
its been much better in 604 bios
What is your ambient temp?
Here the PCH reports 54deg but here in Salzburg is rather chilly. Still kinda hot, nothing else in the machine runs as hot. (only the CPU under load)...Summer is coming, that could be a problem.
I would like to know what exactly the PCH is, maybe we can put some extra heatsink over it.
