Need help with 8700k overclock

Beric77

Hello guys,

8700K + Asus Z370F + 16 Gskill 3200 CL14 + GTX1070

I need help to stabilize the 4.6Mhz OC, i run Prime95 some hours and i think was stable, but playing yesterday i get frezze screen, not BSOD.

I have this in BIOS:

vcore > 1.2 > LLC 6
vccio > 1 .1
vcssa > 1 .1
dram > 1.35 (recomended by gskill) - XMP > on

I run a memtest and HCI test to 800% without problems.

What could be the problem ?

I'm too disappointed with the test programs like Prime95, PC pass the test but after when i play some game my PC still crashing.

Thanks

Unfortunately, running Prime for hours can sometimes only guarantee Prime stability, and not a lot else. Have you tried running Realbench? This is more indicative of realword stablity than crunching prime numbers. Also, if overclocking uncore, revert to stock for the time being.

I set 1.23 vcore and passed 20 pass IBT and Realbench 1 hour.

I going to lower the voltage one point and try test again.

Thanks

Aim for two hours ideally, but sounds promising. You may just need to soak test the system in games to see if the problem reoccurs. It may be GPU related.
