First time OCer
I have a msi meg z390 ace, corsair 150i cooler, 64GB ram (4x16). I am trying to OC for the first time. I did the minimal bios changes:
xmp, cpu ratio 50, cpu ratio mode dynamic, ring ratio 47, cpu core voltage 1.30v to 1.32V, Intel C-state disabled
I have tested memory with memtest overnight in xmp mode with no cpu OC. Passed.
I am using hwinfo64, prime95, and cinebench r20 to OC.
Here are my results:
Standard plus memory at XMP:
Cinebench R20 : 4826, 4841, 4844 ~60deg
Prime95 w/AVX2 10m : max 77deg
5.0GHz, 1.30V plus memory at XMP:
Cinebench R20 : 5192, 5165, 5187 ~86deg
Prime95 w/AVX2 10m : FAILED (windows froze)
5.0GHz, 1.31V plus memory at XMP:
Cinebench R20 : 5171, 5159, 5180 ~90deg
Prime95 w/AVX2 10m : FAILED (1 worker had rounding error after 7m) (saw thermal throttling at about same time)
5.0GHz, 1.32V plus memory at XMP:
Cinebench R20 : 5151, 5174, 5166 ~92deg
Prime95 w/AVX2 10m : PASSED, (Ring/Core throttling after 7m, CPU package 100deg)
Looking for advice from this forum as it looks like it's filled with the best of the best. I'd like to know how to fully test stability from here and any other advice you can offer.
