On the Ring Ratio I tend to go 3 less than my max core and again just test to make sure you are stable.
As to speedstep etc, I always just leave it at auto as I like the CPU speed to drop when there is no load.
Other than that you are fine. On the vcore side, I do not like Auto as Gigabyte tend to blast a bit too much vcore when left to their own devices...
Finally a better CPU cooler in the future will help, a cost effective 240mm AIO or a better Air cooler will drop temps quite a bit. 240 AIO's have really come down in price so might be worth a look..
I've had mixed results, still with errors needing further adjustments... I assume it's my Fixed vCore of 1.25v?
Running the below settings with Handbrake to encode a 1080p video for about 20 mins and completed the encoding (without it specifically stating errors); however, WMP wouldn't play the file. The source file was good; I tried encoding again for about a minute before stopping and that small output worked fine.
HWiNFO screenshot attached, only a 40 second differential between me loading it and starting the encoding. The screenshot was taken with about 10-15 seconds left in the encoding.
- Multiplier = 50
- Ring Ratio = 47
- AVX Offset = 1 [I started with this for the sake of it]
- "Fixed" vCore, set to 1.25v
- LLC = High (one below Turbo)
Three cores peaked at 80c/max.
Per the attached screen shot, the vCores only "averaged" 1.266-1.269 throughout the entire 20 min encoding. There were occasional spikes that momentarily lasted. However, there were periodic spikes above that in both the "Current" and the "Max" columns. Does this mean that the process is obviously still reaching those increased voltages, but the motherboard is only allowing 1.25 + a nominal increase, due to me setting the Fixed Core Temp of 1.25v?
I assume that's the case and need more juice.
When I tried Prime95 26.6 (small tests), it ran for about 15 minutes, temps were low/mid-80's and maintained there. However, HWiNFO showed constant 1.303v for all the cores, maxing at 1.307-1.311. However, the average vCore for all cores was 1.28v. After 15 mins, it blue screened and had rebooted.
Any suggestions on what to try... such as 1.3v, any other settings or recommendations?
