Rampage V Extreme
I can easily OC my CPU to 45/44 with AI Suite II, but it will constantly crash on Prime95. I have to reduce it to 40 before Prime95 gets stable (24 hour test). My RAM (Corsair Dominator Platinum 3200) is stable at 3200, according to Prime95. No matter what stress test I use, except Prime95, it shows that the CPU is stable at 45/44. I can OC it to 46 if I up the core voltage to 1.35v and maybe even furter if I did some research in OC'ing, but it's too much of a hassle. With Prime95 the CPU will run at 85C to 105C, but the water (with Aida64 CPU, RAM and GPU) doesn't get seriously hot (35'ish) if I keep the room temp at 25C or lower.
My questions is: reading the forums about Prime95 and OC'ing, crashing in Prime95 shows that your CPU isn't able to run at that speed and that you will corrupt the data on your PC, over time. I would think that Windows (10 64 pro) had some safeguards built in to check that what it saved was correct, so that that statement would be void, is that correct, or will I have to downclock it to 4GHz?
