    8700k system unstable at idle

    I have an 8700k, Maximus x code, Trident Z 32gb 3200mhz. I've overclocked to 5.1 yesterday and its passed realbench and prime95 stress tests with no issues.

    Today its frozen up twice while idle on the desktop, but no issues gaming or benching.

    My overclock settings are based on a lot of reading done on this forum and de8auer's 8700k oc guide on youtube.

    Manual mode
    MCE off
    AVX -2
    Sync all cores on
    cpu svid: disabled
    LLC 6
    Long duration package power limit 4095
    Short duration package power limit 4095
    cpu core/cache curretnt limit max 255.50
    min cpu cache ratio 42
    max cpu cache ratio 42
    bclk aware adaptive voltage: disabled
    cpu core/cache voltage : manual 1.350v

    everything else at default values

    Does anything in there look out of place?

    Any suggestions on what to try ?

    Yes, delidded, temps are good. Max out at 67c in prime95.

    Doing a bit of reading and I'm starting to look at the RAM as the possible cause.

    I entered the rated values manually, but did notice it was taking longer to post so dropped it back to 3100mhz (from 3200) and all seemed ok. Running Windows Memory Diagnostic too right now and it has 'detected hardware problems'.
