Here Is a basic run down of situation. I have the following build,
AMD BOX AMD FX-6100 BLACK ED
GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD3 AM3+ AT
KINGSTON KHX1600C9D3K2/8GX DDR x2
LGELECOEM LG 22X SATA DVDRW
GIGABYTE HD6870 1GB D5 OC PCIE
PCPOWER SILENCER 760W ATX PSU
LOGITECH MK320 WRLS OPT KEYBD+mouse
COOLMAST HYPER N520 UNV CPU HS
Lanboy Air Blue ATX Modular Mid Tower Computer Case
When I overclock I adjusted the cpu clock ratio
I disable turbo boost and Core Performance boost
Everything else, I leave at auto.
When win7 boots , I show 4.2 gigaherz. Everything is fine ! I encode some video with hand brake to max out cpu load
to 100 % on all six cores and according to coretemp I never go above 40c. I played battlefield 3 for over an hour
without a single hiccup.
This is where it ends.
If I turn the multiplier up anymore, my machine gets to the windows logo and then BSOD.
" a clock interrupt was not received on a secondary processor withing allotted time interval"
at end of message is "stop 0x00000101"
The ony way to boot back into windows is to go into bios and load optimized defaults.
should I up the voltage anywhere else ? Ive never messed with northbridge voltage before. My case has 6 fans and with all of them on low
I dont go above 40c @ 4.2 gigaherz. So i was hoping with fans on high I may be able to go 4.4. or 4.5 but
I keep gettng BSOD as mentioned above.
At 4.2GH and under load you can put hand behind tower/case and the air coming out is barely warm and case is in wide open area.
Its not in a desk or any other constricted area.
Any advice you can lend is greatly appreciated. Sorry for the litany
