Voltage trouble

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Ok so Im running an i7 950 at 4.0ghz on a Giga x58a UD5 mb with 12gigs of ripjaws ram and an EVGA GTX 580 superclocked edition. its been stable for a while now but it crashes randomly after days of stable performance. once it does, it resets back to stock (3.2 ghz). I know it isnt a hardware problem because it runs smoothly at around 67c after half an hour of max useage on stock clock, and at around 75-80 @ 4ghz. My only problem seems to be that it will randomly bluescreen and undo all the tweaks even when not under any stress. I had some trouble with cooling so i cut down the voltage a bit and im pretty sure thats the source of the problem, but any higher voltage gives me temps in the 80's when running Prime95. its any pretty common setup so im wondering if anyone out there with something similar has any suggestions. all help appriciated, thanks.

P.S- Before anyone asks, I'm using a Noctua D-12 cooling system with dual fans (NOT ****TY STOCK FAN), artic silver 5 thermal paste, and all in a HAF 932 case. so cooling is pretty much maxed.

80s is fine for stress testing. Don't worry about it.

And I wouldn't consider yourself stable until you can pass 20 passes of LinX/Intel Burn Test on maximum memory, as well as 10 hours of prime95 blend test.
