Common BSOD Error Code List for Overclocking

Common BSOD Error Codes for Overclocking

0x101 = increase vcore
0x124 = increase/decrease QPI/VTT first, if not increase/decrease vcore...have to test to see which one it is
on i7 45nm, usually means too little VVT/QPI for the speed of Uncore
on i7 32nm SB, usually means too little vCore
0x0A = unstable RAM/IMC, increase QPI first, if that doesn't work increase vcore
0x1A = Memory management error. It usually means a bad stick of Ram. Test with Memtest or whatever you prefer. Try raising your Ram voltage
0x1E = increase vcore
0x3B = increase vcore
0x3D = increase vcore
0xD1 = QPI/VTT, increase/decrease as necessary, can also be unstable Ram, raise Ram voltage
0x9C = QPI/VTT most likely, but increasing vcore has helped in some instances
0x50 = RAM timings/Frequency or uncore multi unstable, increase RAM voltage or adjust QPI/VTT, or lower uncore if you're higher than 2x
0x109 = Not enough or too Much memory voltage
0x116 = Low IOH (NB) voltage, GPU issue (most common when running multi-GPU/overclocking GPU)
0x7E = Corrupted OS file, possibly from overclocking. Run sfc /scannow and chkdsk /r

BSOD Codes for Sandy Bridge

0x124 = add/remove vcore or QPI/VTT voltage (usually Vcore, once it was QPI/VTT)
0x101 = add more vcore
0x50 = RAM timings/Frequency add DDR3 voltage or add QPI/VTT
0x1E = add more vcore
0x3B = add more vcore
0xD1 = add QPI/VTT voltage
“0x9C = QPI/VTT most likely, but increasing vcore has helped in some instances”
0X109 = add DDR3 voltage
0x0A = add QPI/VTT voltage

Thank you. This will be an invaluable reference to any of my (and everyone else's) future overclocking ventures.
Thanks, I've had a hell of a time understanding my BSOD codes when I'm overclocking. I'm usually able to get it stable via trial and error along with stress testing, but this is a wonderful time saver. Thanks again =D!
Brilliant. Thanks a lot! Going to print and laminate this one
Subbed for epicness!
Thanks so much...this is priceless!
^^...nuff said
thank you so much!!!... i wish i knew this a while back!!.. just a quick question is QPI/VTT same as VDDA on AMD chipsets?
Good stuff, Thanks bro
which Vcore do i add/subtract, because there's 5 seperate Vcores
What error are you running into?
0x124
0x000000124 (to be exact)
Add to CPU Vcore
well none of them look like vcore for CPU
Post or PM a link of your BIOs and I will help you sort it out.
thanks for the help, increased Vcore, no problems since!
thanks, it's useful!
