    Intel burn test or linx run full memory for 10 loops for quick test and 20 loops for full stablity. Key eye on core temps. If using prime95 for at least 6-12 hrs.
    I usually do a LinX max mem 5-10 run, although I may try for the 20 run mark with this 4.5ghz OC. Everyone has their own idea of "full stability" its one of the very few things in computers I have found is completely pointless to argue about. :)

    Guys i really need some help with this...its the same old story...4.5 still has boot issues although i can run LinX though, once in windows...ive even set the VTT high

    4.45 (bclk=212) is stable as a rock=0 boot issues, after that though i get boot issues...in fact sometimes it wont even boot.

    Any chance that buying single sticks of Super talent ram (same ones, but not matched) could be giving me these boot issues...i still cannot boot past 4.5ghz

    PS: I really need some experts here


    EDIT: oh yeah ive noticed something very strange that sometimes happens...when trying to boot at 4.6ghz, sometimes if it does initailly post it will show 4.7 or 4.8ghz...ive seen the same thing in bios also sometimes the clock speed gets jacked real high for some reaseon. Yes, all thermal controls are disabled and turbo is enabled but the multi is set to 21x

    I doubt the memory not being a kit matters, but it could be the memory itself or the timings if you are using very tight timings?

    Try with super loose timings as a test just to see if this is the issue. Also, if you can try another single stick of different memory, just to rule out your STT's as a cause themselves.

    As for your Turbo/Multi issue, can you disable Turbo and set 21? Sorry I forget, been using unlocked CPU's for a long time

    You do have all cores enabled correct?

    turbo is enabled and all CPUs are enabled. When overclocking i always use loose main timings of 8-8-8-24...just recently for my 4.45ghz OC i started using 7-7-7-21.

    Can u take a look and see if any of the subtimings seem out of whack or too tight?

    Timings all look ok to me.

    Maybe try 17-18 uncore and see if that helps

    hmmm ill give that a shot...i just figured running the uncore as slow as possible would be the best idea

    I also tested each ram stick individually to see if i could boot at 4.55ghz or higher and it was a no go, so i think my ram is fine.
    How high should I be going on my IOH voltage?

    Sometimes it is, but there are times where a higher uncore will be more stable (And it's always better for performance too)

    IOH should be fine at 1.1-1.2, stock or close is generally good, going to high can cause more errors than helping.

    So each stick one by one failed cold boot tests? You did each test one by one on a cold system correct, 4+ hours downtime per test?

    4 hours of downtime per test??? Ive never heard of that before. Basically I just tried each stick on at a time at 4.55ghz (215 bclk), booting at stable settings first then ocing to 4.55...there was no downtime between tests

    Well you wanted to test cold boots right?

    When I do that I actually make the test a 3 day thing, cold booting each morning with a new stick to test each one.

    You need to do it that way if you want to rule out one of the sticks as a possible cause to your cold boot issues.

    check this out (not the cracks on my LCD)...i get this from time to time when im overclocking...what would cause this to happen?

    I cant believe it booted at 5.92

    and no i did not set the bclk to 282
