I have a water-cooled 4790k OC'd to 4.7 GHz stable on a Z97X Gigabyte Gaming 3 mobo and recently upgraded to 32 Gb of Corsair Vengeance Pro 2400 DDR3. With the latest F8d BIOS, I activated the only XMP Profile available and was able to log into Windows 10 but was bombarded with a barrage of crashes, errors and blue screens with any demand put on the CPU.
The voltage is at 1.65v and the timings are set at 11-13-13-31 despite corsair's recommendation of 10-12-12-31 which did not work. I tried memtest86 which produced errors well into the thousands but everything comes back to homeostasis when I drop the frequency to 2200.
I know there is minuscule performance loss, if any at all, but I've paid my dues and want to enjoy the performance.
I am enthusiastic about computers and open to learning. Any advice will be helpful.
