Stable in all bench marks, Crashes after 30 minutes of bad company 2

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, i got what i thought was a stable CPU overclock which was 4200Mhz with 1.3v idle and ~1.276v Load and all was good (meaning i completed a variety of benchmarking suites ( 20 runs of LinX, 10 Runs of Burn Test on Max, Multiple Cinebench runs, 3 hours of prime on Max Heat Power Consumption) and it was rock stable. I even played over 10 hours of test drive unlimited 2.

But yesterday i played bad company 2 for around 30 minutes and i got my first Blue Screen. so i was wondering what the problem was and how to fix it. Keep in mind this Motherboard lacks a Vcore Configuration option but i do have the LLC settings and such so simply "upping the Vcore" isn't a viable option.

EDIT: Crashed again with only 4.1Ghz. funny thing is that the Bios Voltage Monitoring software shows that it is eating up ~1.296v when running BC2 at 4.1Ghz and i think that should be more than enough for a stable OC. so whats wrong??

Did you run Intel Burn tes/ LinX with AVX and the updated linkpacks? You can get it from here (You need SP1 installed)

Running 3hours prime is not really long enough, try pushing for 8hours, even better 12 hours, Prime blend seems to be the best tester for SB.

Could you post a screenshot of your bios please.

Are you using a third party program to overclock your GPU?

That was my problem with bfbc2. I heard others had to update they're sound card.
I dont all my programs installed or I'd read the BSOD for you and let you know.

Run your GPU stock to rule that out.

I had this same problem.

I uninstalled easy tune 6 and it "seems" to be working fine now.

How do you check your voltages? EasyTune 6 seems to be the only program that gives me reliable data. CPU-z and Real-Temp, HW monitor and Speed Fan all give different readings.

Software voltage monitors are never to be trusted. I personally don't see a need for it either.
