    MAybe I should downgrade the bios to 2202 ?
    Some threads here report problems with last two update 3007 and 3301?
    But that's at 4.6+ GHz

    Found interesting behaviour of RB stability issues.

    If I run in parallel to the RB stability test a video player, eg. MPC-HC playing SD video in a loop.
    Stability improves! It can run at least for 2 hours without failing, but once you stop the video playing, a few minutes later you are given the dreaded instability warning. So the heavy multitasking test gets distilled by having another application slightly using the CPU and GPU, thus offloading the stress?

    Scores are not effected, since benchmarking works fine on a clean boot. The question is in long run stability.

    Just for info, this are the scores for my system:

    Image Editing: 212985
    Time: 23.889

    Encoding: 168592
    Time: 56.871

    OpenCL: 96751
    KSamples/sec: 2546

    Heavy Multitasking: 168582
    Time: 58.013

    System Score: 142377

    Another update....
    Looks like it's not iGPU, nor GPU related problem
    My ram is probably fine, since doing all possible combos of running bank 1 or bank 2 in duel channel, or even running any of the dimms in any of the slots in single mode results in the same failure Blender:BLF_lang_init: 'locale' data path for translations not found usually between 20-30 minutes of running.
    The DIMM modules run at 50C under heavy load, so imho, that should be ok?

    So what is left to try ?

    Faulty CPU or MB ?

    Or really missing some trivial setting in UEFI to get it stable?

    One last thing to try is to reseat the cooler with new better paste, maybe a few degrees shave will help?

    Solved!

    It looks like a bug in RealBench 2.44 that gives false positives.
    Upgraded to RealBench 2.53b and all runs are completed with no problems now.
    What a relief, I was almost ready to spend another $1000 for new parts.

    RB should give random fails after some time (Devil in me), then people will rush to get upgrades.
    Hope this never happens again and you never get stuck with what I had to go through for the last few month.
