googling the board...brb
TBH I dont overclock ram at all, leave it stock, CPU and vid card are what i focus on.
looks like CPU VTT from the bios images i could find. Should be at like 1.08V stock. Only reason i bring it up is because you weren't using the XMP profile where that addition is a hidden feature if you don't closely look at all the voltages
Well, I am currently speaking to Intel live chat and arranging an RMA for the proc.
how did you manage to get them to take it back?
just told um it stopped working, he asked how did I know it was the proc and told him I took it to pc world, only a noob would go to pc world so he gave me a service number
Good to hear, new processor with no issues sounds good
Ive had to do that...Seriously, when all else fails act as oblivious to the situation as possible...
Playing dumb is usually a good solution. When you know they won't get you what you need/deserve sometimes you just have to pretend to be a dumb consumer.
Think it's degrading faster now, have had to reduce the multi, lower ram to 1066 and up the volts as Youtube is making it BSOD
can i get my guitar out and start playing 'hail to the chef' yet?
Thank god I have my lappy to fall back on, its not that great but if I plug my monitor mouse and KB into it, it will do for 2 weeks while I sort something out, man I hate when shit goes wrong with my PC
Good luck on the new CPU.
Lesson learned huh dude? Lets hope the ram, motherboard, or powersupply are not screwed up aswell
I bought a new board turns out it wasn't the board, RAM passes memtest and GPU is ok.
Also got my RMA approved from intel this morning
Yep, unstable chip!
I heard that the CPU pins are something to suspect with socket 1156 and socket 1155.
You may have a fried contact.
OT CPU was delievered today, just need to get home and pop it in
Omg missed my main PC thank god it was a very quick turnaround time, honestly I would recommend sending a CPU back to Intel over the reseller as turnaround from me sending to receiving was one week and that's taking the weekend into consideration also
Have waited nigh on 1.5-2 weeks waiting on an RMA from the likes of ebuyer as they will not send out replacement without testing and from them receiving the defective product to getting round to testing can take 4-5 days alone by experience
damn them moderators and their infernal moderatin's! Im sick of these motherf*ckin mods on a motherf**kin plane!!!!
shall i prepare some eggs and get the bacon ready incase you fry this one sir?
Haha you ass!!
No frying of this one, am scared to even OC, popped it in, set to stock like I did with the last one and it wouldnt boot and it's booted fine, ran IBT on full mem with no issues. Am going to ease it up to 4ghz+ in windows with gigabyte's new touch bios and see how I go
No posts have been deleted. If they were (even if a user deleted their own post), they would show up for me and they aren't.
Id say just aim for 4.6 or 4.7Ghz and call it a day.
you dont need that kinda speed anyway.
Yea, I will edit that post, half of them weren't showing at work, though they are all back now
Meh, there the goes the idea of using the Windows touch bios I CBA updating bios and downloading it and faffing in Windows, changed ram to xmp1 (1600 7.8.7) in bios, multi to 42 (to be safe ) and vcore to 1.28 and disabled thermal throttling, left everything else at stock/auto and she booted first time and passed a run of IBT not going higher than 55c on the hottest core
Might leave it at this for a while before I find my 24/7
I find IBT isnt great for finding instability. I can put my rig through 50runs of IBT and it wouldnt find a thing.... 2hrs with Prime95 and one core fails.
I had to re-tweak my OC a bit after that but its all solid now. more then 12hrs stable with prime
