    I forgot to mention that's with a AVX offset of 3. I'm thinking of lowering the voltage and just rolling with it though. I actually got a good ~15 hours in Prime95 29.4 at 1.335 V, no issues in Cinebench either, but when I tried Prime95 26.6 that's when I had to start adding voltage. Took 1.4 V to get 24 hour stable but even at 1.35ish I could get 4 hours or so in Blend. Each 10 mV I added got me further and further. Also, before I got around to testing with 26.6 I had a pretty long gaming session, about 5 hours in ships without issue at 1.335 so I think I may park it around there and see how it goes. I don't do any video editing or streaming or any of that. Just gaming, so I think it might be alright. I also tried out offset voltage instead of manual but that shit boggles my mind. I set it to -100 mV and it maxes at 1.31 V in Cinebench which isn't enough and causes a crash but the same setting in Prime small FFT immediately jumps it up to over 1.44 Volts so I have to stop it right away so I don't fry the chip.

    Well my lottery results are finally in. 5.0 GHz at 1.40 Volts and 85C max temp. Not stellar but not the worst.

    Yep, 15 hours and 24 passes with no errors in parallel mode with the XMP profile enabled this time.

    RIP. Well, didn't cost me any $$, just a week with no PC. Which was ok with me, I ended up digging up some old RPGs out of my console game stash and having a go with them.

    With the not + version of memtest, I have 32 hours of successful testing without the XMP profile. Did about 15 hours on the default round robin test, then the last 17 on the parallel testing (although it only used 6 cores and not all 12 threads). I'll test it with the XMP enabled tonight.

    Apparently I lied. New RAM, same problem. I did manage to get a pic before it totally crashed: The interesting thing is that if I let memtest run in single thread mode instead of multithreaded mode it runs fine. Got to 5 good passes overnight before I left for work this morning. Multithreaded crashes at the same spot every time.

    I couldn't. It would throw up a few errors then the whole screen would artifact and the entire system would crash.

    Well so far the RMA has been smooth. Getting an RMA issued from newegg was super easy, however getting them to send me a shipping label so I didn't have to front that myself was a bit more of a pain. You have to either call them or do the online chat with them and ask specifically for a return shipping label. Sat in the chat queue for over 3 hours. Once I got through only took 5 mins or so though. My package got to their warehouse yesterday, they processed it and issued my return order within about 2 hours. Took till today for them to get it shipped out, and I'm expected to receive it Thursday which is exactly a week after I dropped the bad sticks in the mail with FedEx. Not too bad imo. I was expecting them to hassle me a bit since the ram was good enough to boot with but I'm guessing based on the turnaround time that they just wanted to confirm that I returned both sticks and they weren't obviously damaged or altered. Guess I have the fact that GSkill warrants these sticks for life to thank for that.

    Any particular reason to use 26.6 over 29.4? Just curious. I have both, I went out and got the latest version in the hopes that 26.6 was bugged or something before I finally realized my RAM was kaput.

    Well for now the ball is still in Newegg's court because it's been less than 30 days since the purchase. I'll let you know how it goes though.

    Good call on memtest. It's good enough to boot and run software but fails memtest after about 3 and a half minutes without fail on XMP or standard. Throws up 80 errors then crashes in spectacular fashion. RMA here I come.

    Got it all put together finally. Is the stability testing software for the Intel CPUs still the same as it used to be? 8 years is a long time in the PC world. Still have IntelBurnTest and Prime95, but I hear a lot about Cinebench too. Do I need to get some other tools in my belt or am I good with IBT and Prime?

    I'm slowly scrubbing my way up the IJN and US BB lines as well as the US Cruiser line. Only have Fuso as my highest tier though. Just got New York and I'm like 2/3 of the way to the Cleveland. I played some in Alpha and O/C Beta, but I basically quit at the CBT wipe and never picked back up again till like a month ago. I'm not shit, but not that great either. (I did full health KO a La Galissonnière at 18 KM on a blind shot behind a mountain in my Fuso like three days ago, much tears collected).

    If you're going for the oven trick, do use caution as some people claim that it releases toxic chemicals into your oven making it unsafe to cook food in after.

    Finally got all my parts ordered. I was waiting to find the 1070 at anywhere close to MSRP and I hit the jackpot today and got it directly from EVGA. I did end up going with the Evo 860, saved me about $80 bucks. Also went with the ASUS ROG Swift PG249Q for the monitor because I couldn't find the AOC model in stock anywhere. Got it for $740 so not a huge loss there.
