Sometimes it takes hours to BSOD! I actually doubt I even fixed it! Haha, worst comes to worst, I'll reformat to make sure, test my HDD again and RMA. We'll post back if it happens again, I'll probably give an update in a few hours if it doesn't. IDK, I am just hoping for the best right now since I can't trigger the blue screen myself.

EDIT: No BSOD yet. However, cpu-z is giving error code sometimes when I try and start it. like 1/5 times it does. IDK if that means anything.

This may or may not help. Windows 7? If so go into power options and set to high performance if you have not done so.

Internal PLL over voltage is usually only needed if you cannot boot into windows at your set ratio. Also i have Spread Spectrum set to disabled.

I was getting the blue screen error 0x124 after running prime for 6 + hrs ( frustrating ) until i bumped vcore a tad more and fiddled around with a few more settings. Not sure if it was the vcore or one of the settings i changed or both. Now i am prime stable for 17 hrs custom blend both manual and offset at 4.5 ( screen shots of my manual vcore bios below with current settings ) but now running current settings with offset and no more 0x124 errors at all gaming, priming, idle or anything else as of yet.

I just included screen shots of my bios settings for you to give you a reference as it may help. I see you are running faster ram to. Maybe drop it down a little to see if you can get your cpu stable first to eliminate that from the equation? Hope this helps a little.

I already tried that. I did it at auto settings and it happened just as often and this ram setting as been tested stable.
I do not have XMP on, should I? I turned it off because it increased my ram volts to 1.668v, and I didn't know I could change it thereafter. Also, how does one up the speed without changing the ratio? I remember seeing a guide on it and I also remember reading that they insisted on its superiority, but I am not sure exactly how to do it on this board.

You said your vcore is set at 1.35. What's your turbo and blk? 4700 as in your rig sig? I needed 1.36 to be stable at 4600 although i would pass hours of prime at 1.34, and although each cpu is different, you may as well also try bumping that .02 or so. Once you're stable you can always start dropping things back.

I believe you can still set your voltage for your ram manual in XMP mode too. So you can try XMP mode not sure if it will solve your problem.

What do you mean by one up the speed without changing the ratio? Are you referring to upping the BLCK/PCIE frequency?

It has actually been really good since I did the switching frequency thing. I am pretty sure my CPU is stable. I might turn off PLL overvoltage because of what xf5x said. 4.7 @ 1.35 seems quite normal to me from what I have seen on the sandy stable club.


@xf5x
thanks for the screenshots. I don't know what XMP really does, I'll go look it up.

If your stable at 4.7 @ 1.35 that is pretty good!

As far as the screen shots your welcome i hope they helped a bit.

I wouldn't say normal. It's Quite good. Better than average. Which means, most people require a little more than that to be stable at 4.7. You may indeed have one of the lucky CPUs that requires less. But don't assume because some, or even if it was most, people can that your's should be able to as well. It's a good thing to up if you have stability issues. You can always drop it down again later thumb.gif

I upped my vcore before and I still got idle bsod. The only time it didn't crash was when I first got it and was on stock. So I figured I needed to change a bios setting while overclocked. Your suggestion may have actually done the trick. However, it is still too early to tell.

As for 4.7 being good, I am not so sure. I was shooting for 4.8 @ 1.35. I mean, after looking around at peoples' settings, that was my definition of a good chip. I see you have 16 GB or ram, if you had 8 like me, you could probably get as far as I get on similar voltage. My temperature never even goes past 60 degrees celcius either, even in prime95. Maybe that helps too. 4.7 is not bad though. I am very happy to have gotten over 4.5 with less than 1.4v! It is definitely not a bad chip.

Realizing you've reached the top of the mountain, "safely" = priceless

Once my box settled in: 4.6 at 1.25V , I truly felt my journey had ended.
But that's OK , now I do nothing but use my computer, and i've yet to
experience one single hiccup. Nothing.Nada.Zero

Yes, there's no doubt this box is capable of a few more points.....
But would the real world experience even be noticable ? [NO]

Now, I can comfortly run this thing for many many years to come.
Low voltages , low temperature equals longevity [YES]
