The last benchmark I ran with my vcore upped showed much better marks over factory levels.
Prime95 ran stable for a while but my temperatures were jumping to 58-59c. Which I think 60 is bad times if I read correctly.
Considering my computer tower is in a closet that usually has the doors shut I'm going to back off my settings to run 3.0ghz (333x9) so my temperatures on my cores will be lower. Then I'm going to work on maximizing my memory.
I'm hoping to get the most juice out of my system while it's in a closet and it needs to be stable for at least a 16 hour Prime95 (That is a little bit longer than transcoding a Blu-ray). I might have to consider somethign different than my thermaltake big typhoon if I'm going to be shooting for 3.28. Any suggestions on which memory settings i should be focusing on?
Your temps are great @ the voltage you have. If you continue to fail Prime ,then run memtest 86 to be sure RAM issues are not causing problems.
I noticed that some of your voltages other than CPU V-Core,CPU term,and MCH Core are bumped up from stock. I am certainly not saying that they are wrong as I don't know much about them. I only bumped the 3 already mentioned and of course set DRAM voltage/timings and enabled LLC in my rig to achieve a stable overclock All of my other voltage choices I have set manually to stock BIOS settings. If Acoma Andy stops by again he can guide you on those other voltages. Listen to him,he's very good.
