Hey everyone, i have a rather basic understanding of overclocking, and stress testing so let me just start with that.
To start off.
I run a
750 power supply
MSI Gaming pro carbon 270z
MSI GTX 1080 TI
Gskill 32gigs @2117
Water cooler blah blah blah.
When i run a stress test on Memory @ Stock Specs (for everything including GPU) everything passes and nothings unstable.
MSI has this nifty "Gaming mode" in its BIOS which Clocks my CPU 4.8 Max and my RAM @2800 (which is the advertised speed).
Once i run a stress test on the Memory in said Gaming mode i get "hardware fail" from ADIA64.
This is rather quickly after starting the test, 10 seconds top.
once i push everything back to stock and reboot everything runs stable which makes me believe my RAM isnt "bad".
Now i can't for the life of my figure out if i have "bad ram" or i don't have the correct voltage.. or...
i can post logs if needed not sure on what information is needed here.
I bought my PC recently, and I noticed that my system temperature is pretty high. I ran multiple tests with AIDA 64, HWInfo and HWMonitor and they all showed some problems which I do not know to solve on my own.
First of all, my CPU voltage is not stable and can go very very high. For example while playing some games, the voltage hits up to 1.5V and so the temp hits for about 72C. I'm using a stock Spire cooler so this is very dangerous. I tried to change my CPU voltage in my motherboard to 1.2V but to no avail. My PC started, it loaded up my config and the screen turned off while the EZ debug led lighted up.
I never tried overclocking but I changed the curve of my GPU fan speed, as it was also getting hot during gaming.
One last thing, a small red led is always lit up between my CPU socket and RAM. I asked about its purpose to a technician and he said to me that it shows that my motherboard is getting power. I thought it was a little bit ridiculous and I still don't know its purpose. Maybe it's an indicator for over voltage?
My specs: Ryzen 1500x with Spire cooler
GTX 1080 graphics card
8x2 2400 mhz ram
MSI b350 mortar motherboard
650w 80+ power supply
Windows 10 as OS
I can provide pictures of my system and its benchmarks/monitoring
I have a computer in a setting with 6 monitors show video (Sometimes 4k is in the mix) and the video is over network share.
The video was choppy and i realized that my network was getting pegged at 100mb. I ran all new wires and made sure everything was on gigabit Ethernet. Now it is much smoother.
The problem now is that my slightly overclocked computer hangs sometimes. I believe it's because the machine is getting taxed with the flood of new data from the ethernet card and it didn't have to work so hard before.
The question i have is, Do you believe this would be because of the overclocking on the CPU or because one of the video cards is old?
I have an older video (NVS 450) card and a new card (Radeon R9 390).
Trying to narrow this down. Thanks for any expertise.
