My 7700k runs at 4.7ghz, 1.26V
Ram 3600mhz, 1.35V (manualy set)
Usually I play witcher 3 all the evening no problem.
Yesterday I have installed HOB. A sega 16-bit game in terms of graphics against the witcher.
2 strange things are happening:
1. CPU temp is the same as in witcher. (But after experiencing the "heat-spike issue" I can understand this). 70-73c on Core / 56-65 CPU temp.
2. After 30-40 minutes of playing the PC freezes dead. This I can not understand. Witcher, doom, play well, but a simple game causes BSODs.
I have set the XMP profile on (so I can use full speed of RAM) and have set the CPU to 4.6Ghz @ 1.25V adaptive (Or should I set to Auto?).
*Back in the days I had a 3770k. That system was freezing too, with XMP turned on. So current freezes are 99% related to OCing.
