2500k unstable in BC2

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
Hey all,

Is BFBC2 just a buggy game?

Im 3x 12hr stable in Prime95 blend and 20x maximum mem IBT stable, but i play BC2 for like 30 mins and get a BSODx124... among the only time i've got one since i started overclocking!

Please help

Cheers,

Ishi

What I've gathered from SB is this... You can pass countless stability tests without error, however, you play games or idle and you BSOD at random times with the incorrect amount of core voltage.

Checking your VCC, 1.212 is definitely low for a 4.5Ghz overclock. I got random 0x124 BSODs as well as other errors. I haven't had one (yet) since I bumped it from 1.325v to 1.375v.

Mess with your core voltage.

It definately seems that way, i've up'd the vcore to 1.25 in BIOS, ill give it ago again...

Seems like the real stability testers will be gaming then...

Can game for 12hrs solid... its stable!

Yeah, just mess around. I was able to pass Blend for like 11+ hours, as well as Memtest, Large FFTs, etc... however, I'd crash after being idle or playing a game at very random times.

wasnt that a 2600k idle issue?

Your computer might be stable, but would YOU be stable after a 12+ hour gaming session?
