I am new to overclocking.
My current rig has just been fitted with watercooling and I would like to do some overclocking on my rig. I have read on the asus rampage forum on some stuff to adjust when having 64GB Ram. Yesterday I manage to get it stable at 4Ghz after the adjustment and I proceed to push the ratio to 4.2Ghz. Intel Burn test passed on stress: standard but failed during stress: very high. I have put the vcore to offset mode with +0.03v however it still failed at the stress: very high - after 3rd loop.
Should I keep on increasing the offset voltage or is there anything else I can do the the stabilise the ram?
This is my current rig spec:
ASUS Rampage Black Edition X79
Cosair Dominator 32GB kit x 2 1866MHz
PSU Seasonic x1250
Stress test program : Intel Burn Test and Prime 95
Memtest86 (Tested on all the memory - no issue so far)
Things I have done so far to the mb.
Intel Speedstep :Auto
Set AI OC Turner to manual mode,
Memory Frequency: DDR 1600MHz (Suggested by Raja when overclocking 64Gb ram to put one ratio down)
VCCSA Current Capability:Set to 130%(max on my mb)
DRAM-AB/CD Current Capability:Increase to 130%
DRAM-AB/CD Power Phase Control: Set to Extreme
(with the above spec the sys will run stable with all stress test at 4.0Ghz)
Once I up the ratio to 42(4.2Ghz)
The cpuz will show the CPU being downclock(from 4.2 to 1.2) when stress test is ongoing and vcore going at 1.3+v)
I increase the vcore offset to +0.02 ( The cpu seem normal under stress test, going around 2.8-4.2, usually around 3.3ghz) passed standard but failed the very high part -Intel Burn Test
I increase vcore offset to +0.03 (Same as above )
Qns, Do I still increase the vcore offset or is there anything else I can do?
