    Unfortunately, the trail version won't give me all the fields filled out, but here's what I got.

    Tried a restart and stopped Cortana and got a little better

    Okay it’s good that it works and boots up. Do you see any noticeable difference in gaming, even if it’s marginal like 2-4 FPS?

    For Reference, here's my kit

    First pic is with a TREFI cycle, the 2nd pic is a clean run. Bandwidth kinda fluctuates give or take 400MB/s

    Taking a guess here: I think your write and copy speeds must be close to 40GB/s. Is it hyperX module?

    The RAM I had before this was single stick 8GB stock Dell RAM so it's obviously better but I don't have a good comparison to make against a comparable set or less or equal speed.

    Somewhat close, look below. Yes, HyperX 2x8 16GB 2666. Though these are my best runs out of several. It seems to be a minimum of ~34500 reads when the processor multiplier is going down to 34x or 35x instead of 36x. I'm guessing the multipler and therefore the CPU freq. does this as a result of not having much if any of a load since some of these higher scores I got when I started up Chrome.

    Thanks first off to the generous forum member who gifted me a full version of this software since I didn't have it originally.

    My memory corruption issues continue when an external monitor is plugged in via HDMI.

    Currently NVIDIA driver version 23.21.13.9125 and Intel driver version 23.20.16.4973.

    I wanted to try using the mini displayport instead, to try isolating the problem to the HDMI port itself. I can't seem to get the displayport connection to work though. Anyone here driving an external monitor using DisplayPort?

    Update intel driver to latest non DCH driver and see if it fixes the issue. In HDMI you should use nv control panel.

    I thought you could only download DCH drivers from Intel's support site now.

    Last legacy drivers are from October 2017. Is that what you're referring to?
