This is a split board - You can return to the Split List for other boards.

This is my last effort at overclocking this POS.

I run mine at 1.45v 24/7

Granted it's a different cpu brand entirely...

You gotta be overlooking something, nobody loses the lottery that badly

LLC?


I've set it to turbo, which is the highest I can choose. Obviously I've tried it on auto as well. No change.

I really wouldn't expect it to be that bad. I'm wondering if the motherboard is the problem. Does Amazon allow refunds on opened items? I might buy a motherboard to try and see if that's the issue and then return it if not.

Never had any issues Over clocking my CPU or GPU. took all of 2 minutes.

should be fine running that stock.

With the turbo setting on, run a stress test. What are the voltages what are the clock speeds, see if you can replicate that in the bios. If you can't it's likely a mobo issue.

You mean go auto settings other than LLC and see what the voltage and CPU clock is? Let's assume it's 3.8ghz (turbo speeds) and I'm guessing 1.067v. Basically normal, and no problems. What then? What's that supposed to tell me?

Oh, and what stress test? I've seen like 5 or 6 different ones being recommended. Aida64, Intel burn test, OCCT, Prime95, LinX

Just a quick test with Aida64, Prime95, and LinX...

CPU clock is 3591.43 in CPUZ
Voltage fluctuates between 1.025, 1.030, and 1.084v, yes with LLC on Turbo
Ran 20 sets of LinX and got no errors.

I can do longer tests later if you think necessary.

Okay, I gotcha. I set the clock speed to 3.6ghz, disabled turbo, LLC on turbo. Put the voltage at 1.025 ( after a more thorough test) and I get the same issues shown in the video.

Are you using the onboard video or do you have a discrete card?

How many sticks of RAM do you have? Try running with just one at a time.

What PSU are you running? It might be faulty and the increased load from the overclock is causing it to not provide clean power.

So it runs fine when you have it set to auto-overclock? Sounds like a mobo issue IMO. Maybe an issue with the BIOS itself on the board.

Maybe you can try out the overclocking program(assuming your mobo has one) that actually runs in the windows. Try changing options in there to meet the auto-overclock, and see if that works. If it does it's likely an issue with the mobo itself.

Nothing wrong with running a cpu at stock.

There is not, but there is when you go out of your way to spend extra money to overclock. He could have saved $50+.

I've tried different parts in the machine, so it's either the motherboard or the CPU. I've tried the auto overclock thing for 20% or 40% increase. I get the same issue. I'd love to try a different motherboard, but I don't know anyone around with a 1150 board. I'm checking with Gigabyte, but they're just idiots about troubleshooting it sounds.
