    Nevermind again. I guess I'll start at 1.12V. The gradation is much more fine than I thought.

    Argh! Someone change the layout of function of this quick reply feature. I don't recall how many times I clicked on "reply to thread" instead of "Post quick reply" and lost the message in the box!!! Why do you have to lose the message just for clicking "reply to thread"? >.>

    Anyway...

    So I learned that raising ICH and IOH in tandem made the cold boot memory corruption worse. That's when I learned that IOH CORE has a phase locked loop relationship with QPI PLL. In fact, QPI PLL and IOH VCore have the same V increment options. For instance, both skip a 1.12V option. ICH, instead, is the old SouthBridge. This does not concern the HD 5770. And I can confirm that I can cold boot into stable system with ICH left at 1.1, which is the default, but which I will leave manually set anyway.

    After 2 hours of power off, booting to my system with IOH and QPI PLL at 1.38V successfully entered into a stable state. However, the soft power cycling still occurred. In fact, it ran longer than ever before. It took more than 10 seconds, I believe, before I saw the Gigabyte logo screen! It was noticeably longer than before. Still, the system was completely stable as far as memtest is concerned. Of course I will have to reformat and reinstall windows before I can run windows based stress tests. But, intuitively, nothing about raising these two settings indicates that they will leave windows in an unstable state.

    I am not surprised that when I reset, I saw the Gigabyte logo screen almost immediately. This cold boot phenomenon is curious...in a frustrating way.

    I am going to test at 1.28V when I wake up from my evening's sleep. -_-

    What's the ram voltage rated at? 1.5v? If so try one click more and see if it loops from cold

    It's rated at 1.6. 1.5 is not stable. I have read warnings about raising it higher than rated V, though.

    I'm gonna skip down to 1.16V instead. But I'll try with 1.62 VDIMM. But I think that voids the warranty.

    Anyway...

    If using Firefox and that happens you can always click back or backspace key and it will go back, then in the quick reply box right click and choose undo

    I think that only holds the past 5-10 seconds though, so if you quickly wrote something it may not be there.

    Or if the screen did not move forward, just try the right click undo and it will put back what you wrote.

    Did you test QPI PLL 1.2? That is all I ever use, unless I am pushing things super high while frozen. This with 1.14 IOH

    Whatever rams rated voltage try one click higher and test cold boot,if no luck put back to rated voltage,a slight increase won't hurt things
