Newbie here...


Good news! I have a stable OC at 4.8Ghz testing fine in Prime95! I think my vCore is too high. as I'm still hitting temps in high 80s and some spikes to mid 90s. I've been able to reduce vCore in IXTU successfully by -0.04 and up to -0.045 and run stable Benchmark (~1590marks) and Stress Tests...and my temps come down to low to mid 80s and stay there.


Bad news! IXTU settings don't stick on reboot or on awake from sleep. When I try using EasyOC to reduce vCore, it always crashes (it only accepts 1.36v at 4.8Ghz, everything else is a crash over or under). When I go direct to BIOS, vCore is listed as "Auto" and nothing I can do will make this field active.


(XMP enabled, fans at full. Incidentally any time I OC to 5Ghz, I get a crash and frequently BSOD, whether I use IXTU, EasyOC, or BIOS. I can get a stable 4.9 but it runs too hot for my liking - again vCore)


Would appreciate any help or insight! Thank you!
