And that explain me why when my system is cold I can use IntelBurnTest without problem but when it is used few hours it got black screen with same voltage.
You need 2133MHz RAM with little OC or 2400MHz RAM.
My RAM is unstable above 2440MHz and I gain nothing at this speed because that I downclock it for lower timings.
I have 2133 ram. But having four banks of it installed is stressful on Visheras memory controller. This ram unfortunately isn't great. 2 kits of Vengeance 2133cl11. But they aren't matching kits. One is Samsung. One is Micron. And they don't play well together (thanks corsair) I am getting new ram. When I can afford it. I'm currently looking at getting 32GB (8x4) of Adata XPG V3 2600. I don't think the IMC will handle 2600MHz. But my goal is [email protected]
cas9 or lower. But at the moment it's not the ram I am worried about. This ram is 2000 at cas 9 stable. Which isn't the issue. The issue is getting 303Bclk stable. Because just that 27MHz onto my CPU-NB clock is throwing the whole overclock. And keeping it cool works as Shrimpbrine has mentioned. If I crank my backside socket fan to the max I can keep it a bit stable for longer in the stress test. But I need to get it stable in a way that isn't an assault to my ears. 6 fans @ 2400rpm and another 7 at 2000 about four feet away. Can really grind your gears.
