sandybridge overclocking and bsod codes

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi all.

Im sure we all know that when we are overclocking sandybridge cpus, a bsod of 124 or 101 80-90% of the time means vcore needs to be increased.

But, what I have noticed is with the lower clocks, lets say 4.8ghz and lower, when I bsod because insufficient vcore it is almost always a 124.

And when I bsod at higher frequencies, lets say 5ghz and above, it is almost always 101.

anyone know why this is? Is it just me? Whatever the reason for it, increasing the vcore usually solves the problem. Just find it strange that I get two seperate bsod codes for higher and lower overclocks.

Wow epic thread for that mobo..............

The BSOD codes are pretty general, that is my understanding, but I notice that I get different BSOD codes when I'm doing different things on my computer. If I BSOD browsing the internet, its 0x1E or 0x3B (I think, I forget, its been awhile since I've BSOD'd at idle thankfully)... if I BSOD during prime it has 100% of the time been 0x124. Never seen a 101 yet. I've also BSOD'd after booting into 5.1ghz, so I dunno.

i cant shake 0x124. it keeps popping up on me, though less and less frequently.
i have tried every memory timing/mhz/voltage combo i can think of.
so, i set the memory to its rated speeds, got the vccio/dram voltage set and now i am going to try upping the vcore to see if it fixes it.
so far so good, but like i said it was sporadic and i could go a week - 2 weeks before it would happen.

That's VTT for me, I raised the VTT to 1.129 and all has been well since.
