I'm getting strange results...basically, I don't feel that the stability of my CPU increases with vcore!?
Here's what I tried and results (all using 1:1 RAM and same BIOS settings except vcore)....
firstname.lastname@example.org RAN OCCT FOR 17h36m56s and I stopped it
email@example.com RAN OCCT FOR 2h19m48s and I stopped it
firstname.lastname@example.org RAN OCCT FOR 1h22m44s and I stopped it
email@example.com RAN OCCT FOR 0h00m20s and it CRASHED
firstname.lastname@example.org RAN OCCT FOR 1h26m52s and I stopped it
email@example.com RAN OCCT FOR 1h13m28s and it CRASHED
firstname.lastname@example.org RAN OCCT FOR 0h13m00s and it CRASHED
email@example.com RAN OCCT FOR 0h11m45s and it CRASHED
firstname.lastname@example.org RAN OCCT FOR 0h12m04s and it CRASHED
email@example.com RAN OCCT FOR 0h12m00s and it CRASHED
I hit a wall REAL FAST. Voltage doesn't help...have you ever hear of someone not being able to get even 2.9 stable??!!?!?
I'm feeling like I'm having the exact same problem that this article describes:
They were even using an E6300. When I reset my settings, I did back off the NB voltage, I think I need to pump it back up....it's just that that NB heatsink really gets HOT! I think everyone here would agree, based on what the values I've listed above, that this is a MB issue, not CPU, right?
