If you have the wrong v.core Phase Control setting, yep absolutely I believe so, given that involves switching between low and high load. And possibly the Switching Frequency, tho I'm not 100% sure on that. I've upped mine to 350 based on a post by Raja@rog over in the rog forums.

Try it out anyway. It fixed it for me. That isn't to say it couldn't be something else.

I take it your in offset mode. Might need to change your LLC setting. See what suits you best and you may need to up your vcore a tad depending on what LLC setting you use.

I am not exactly sure what you mean. Phase control settings? Is that in the same sub menu as LLC?
I am in manual voltage. It is set @ 1.35 with 75% LLC

Digi and VRM options. It's a submenu on the main Extreme Tweaker tab.

http://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?2787-Maximus-IV-GENE-Z-BIOS-Guide-Overclocking

search for phase and scroll up a tiny bit for the screen shot. Then read the explanations below it.

They recommend high or ultra high on LLC for most overclocks. And phase control is there too. It recommends a setting for a clock speed.

OK! I can't try to mess with these quite yet. But I will asap, and I will report back.

I just set it to 350. I also turned on PLL overvoltage, which I am pretty sure is a safe setting to have on. Does PLL overvoltage only apply at load or something? I read to turn it on for 124 codes, and along with harlen's suggestion, was the only thing I hadn't tried.

I leave mine enabled because I overclock well above 4500 which is the suggested rough turning point. The only harm in turning it on is you lose the ability to resume from sleep, so make sure you disable sleep in your energy preferences etc.

Ok, I will keep it on. I have read numerous times with my recent search for an answer that on P67, one should keep spread spectrum enabled, as disabling it can cause 124 bsod issues. This board is Z68 obviously, so I dismissed it. But I guess I should ask: Does it help/hurt on this board? I turned it off from the get-go since I am used to overclocking on AMD, where one should always turn it off.

I don't know. Raja clearly recommends disabling it when overclocking. I have and have no issues. *shrug* The problem with occasional bluescreens is you need patience to work them out, if they indeed are an issue from bios settings. If you change a few things at once and never notice the problem again, you don't know which change fixed it!
