thank you.
I went there before, didn't notice that.
it's 5% min.

Try disabling C3/C6 states, and keep C1E and SpeedStep enabled. C3/C6 cause a lost of issues with idling.

Also, change your power options in Windows.
tried, nothing changes, thank you.

In a situation where you are getting random bsods try the following:
  • Clear CMOS (quick way - take the baterry out), load saved stable overclock, fresh windows install with pretty much nothing installed, no internet connection, nothing just a prime blend run. With minimum processes running and windows services, it would ba clear indication of stability without other 'things' such as a driver error, windows update, internet connection causing bsod.

  • You could try the above or even a BIOS update, I stress that before you update, run stock setttings and then update the BIOS (**Don't update the BIOS on an overclock setting, you could risk bricking the mobo)

  • Go to control Panel/hardware and sound/power options and select High performance Mode.

  • Take the RAM out of the equation, underclock it if you have to and see wherther or not it continues.

  • Many have found that enabling SPREAD SPECTRUM reduces the voltage fluctuation.

  • Try a fresh OS install on a spare HDD or something, remember as explained before, too many bsods in the os = corrupt file system = unstable OS

  • Try Enabling all power saving features - C1E, EIST, C3/C6 Report and Spread Spectrum, with offset first then try with manual voltage.

  • Try using Manual voltage instead of Offset.

  • IF you have an SSD Read THIS, it might help solve your problems.

Im continuously searching and testing to find a solution to this idle bsod problem that a few are facing, till then try the above.

Hope that helps

I have no problem running my system smoothly. it's just that I don't want my cpu always stay up at the upper side , especially when I am downloading overnight (my system is (near) idle when downloading, it's at 16X always before).

I do consider a fresh OS installation if there is really no solution here.

I understand what your saying, however, try it for a couple of nights and see what happens, check each thing on the list I provided and maybe one of them might work for you. It's not a case of letting it run for month's and years, it's so that wen can get an idea of what the problem may be.

Fortunatly for me I don't have the idle bsod problem, but unfortuantly I cannot test it myself.

Hope that helps

thank you for the helps, everyone.

the system seems to be normal again, just don't know why as I didn't change anything. turned on the system today and it's running just like before and able to stay at low multiple when the cpu usage is low.kind of confused , anyway, the important thing is the result.
