I ran my 1600X for 8 hours on Realbench at 4050, which had no issues. Memory clocked at 2133
I ran my Trident Z kit at 3200Mhz 12-14-14-14-44-267-1T (remaining timings followed Stilt's 3333 FAST timings) for 8 hours on Realbench with no issues. CPU at stock.
However, when I join them, I get major instability. I can't go for more than 50 minutes or so without BSODing (or sometimes just failing Realbench). What other settings should I look to change?
Try setting back your RAM to default when you first installed or prior to messing with its paraters and see if the issue goes away. Could be a wrong setting in your RAM.
I’ve only had mine running for a few days and recently set the ram to its design spec of 3200 cl14. Have not really put the system into a stability test like Prime or mem test but haven’t had any issues. I only use the Asus tools in the bios to oc the cpu to 3.7 GHz on air. Cinebench runs fine. I installed Witcher 3 and will try to play later on the day.
Here is what the BIOS set my 3200 CL14 GSkill FlareX using DOCP and randomly decided to raise the voltage to 1.36V from 1.35V . . .
All other settings are in Auto. Played Unturned with this settings for the past few days and Witcher 3 just a few hours ago without issue (cross fingers).
I tried 3333 CL14 using DOCP but raised the voltage to 1.37V . . .
Played Witcher 3 with this setting and so far without issue. Much rather use the 3200 settings, though. Not much difference in imo. From 3200 to 3333 only gained 10 points in Cinebench MC score.Edited by rdr09 - 10/13/17 at 9:21am
