View Full Version : Unable to parse system specs

Hi all, well I just got my build completed and am attempting to try an overclock.
I'm following "Guide: Overclocking Core i7-6700K to 4.6GHz on the Maximus VIII Extreme"
and have just run the preliminary test. Unfortunately it has come up with an error of
"unable to parse system specs - report to forum" All suggestions and hints/tips are welcome this point.
Case: Phanteks Enthoo Primo
Mobo: ROG Maximus viii Extreme
CPU: Core i7 6700K
CPU Cooler: Corsair H110i GTX
RAM: 16GB (2x8) Team Group DDR4 3733 mhz
GPU: ROG GTX 980 ti Matrix
SSD: 3 x 1TB Samsung 850 Pro
Sound Card: Asus Essence STX 2 7:1
Optical: Pioneer BDRW

Hmmm could it be that it is due to the ram settings that enable the ram to reach the 3733 mhz ?
The stock speed was something like 2300 mhz but I had to alter settings in bios to get it to the correct speed ..

Oh .. just read that it will not work with i7 6700 Skylake .. my bad :-(

But if the temperatures were low with the testing at %100,
can I assume it's ok to start with the overclock? I also need to
know if I need to make any allowance for the changes I made
to the RAM speed or will this just overclock the CPU and nothing else?
