jsclark1085When I set everything to defaults the mem test passed greatly! I overclocked it back to 4.5 GHz just to see if the memory test would fail and it sure did. So I need to set my ram at 2666 MHz ?, It was showing that it’s running it to 2618 MHz before it froze. You can see the top of the screen it looks like where some garbage came across before it failed.
kougarThat's good to hear. When in doubt it's easy to do a stability check overnight... Memtest86+ and Prime95 are two things I always keep in my toolkit. Stock DDR4 voltage is 1.2, you can likely bring yours down to 1.25v and I'd recommend doing so if it also tests stable. Upgrading to a 10th-gen processor would mean you'd have to buy a new motherboard as well, the socket changed with them yet again. You have an unlocked processor, I'd just overclock it instead of upgrading. You'll need to read up on it and make sure to always stability check so you don't corrupt your OS install if you do.
jsclark1085So setting the memory at 3200 and voltage at 1.3v it seems very stable now... "Knock on wood"... It had been running for a full day now. Is it worth upgrading to the new 10th gen processor? I would like more speed per core.
arestavo EVGA's X299 boards all support Intel 10900X, 10920X, 10940X, and 10980Xe CPUs with a BIOS update (but apparently cannot use the extra 4 PCIE lanes that these 10th gen CPUs now have over the 79XX and 99XX series). My X299 FTW K is running a 10940X right now.
jsclark1085I will try to raise the voltages on the cpu, what voltages should I do the an i9 7980xe that is over clocked to 4.2ghz?
