Hello and welcome to the forum.
Let me recap what you want from the system.
1 You want all the Intel EIST and C states enabled
2 You want your OC to be ???GHz depending on cooling.
3 Dynamic overclocking to find your maximum OC.
If I have those all correct we can move on.
First of all I do not like to use AIsuite for anything. I remove it and use third party software to monitor my system if I feel I need to monitor my system. Now AIsuite works for some people and they are happy with it. I do not like it personally:)
So what I do is all my OC'ing via the BIOS. If you are happy with the BIOS route let me know and I will walk you through it.
I will put a board on the test bench and set up the system as per your images above.
Please can you tell me what your OS power plan is set at, and if you have made any, and I do mean ANY changes in BIOS at all. 🙂

Sorry for the delayed response. I've been traveling and did not have access to the forum.
Yes you are correct. I want to be able to utilize the power saving states although I understand that this is not the best for stability in am OC, I've always used a static setting myself.
I'm more than happy to use the BIOS to OC, always have. I just wanted to try and utilize the new software.
Target OC is 4.5. I did some inital testing at 1.2 and it should be close to stable as I was able to get a few rounds of OCCT in without it crashing.
As for BIOS settings, I had completely restored to Optimized Defaults.
I can post more detail when I get back home later today.

I tried lowering the ram to 1600mhz thinking i could get the preset to work flawlessly but it still locked up. I'm thinking either overclock is heavily limited by the amount of ram someone has installed, or i just have a crap chip.

We have put a lot of work into the auto tuning utility. Do not underestimate how good it is for finding a base to work away from. The ceiling VID in that utility has been capped by us to take AVX routines into account. The application will fail at the point where your system falls over running the Prime derivative at the ceiling voltage.
We can make the process of the testing longer but then we get complaints that people think it takes too long (n magic bullet). I have some ideas for future directions, but it works as a good base to start tuning a system for now.
Use it as a starting point, and then tune manually if you wish.
