After that, i never get a BSOD again until i use it the next day. When im finished with the comp for the day, i shutdown my PC and then cut the power from the power board. I started to think about it, because it was always the same pattern, everytime i turn off the power board, and turn it on again the next day, i would get a BSOD from the 1st time i turn it on. Then it would reboot and wouldn't happen anymore. Could this be because of my power supply? that it doesn't produce enough power to power my PC the first time i turn it on? like warming up of a car engine analogy for e.g.

You really dont need another PSU. The 620W will work fine, the amps are more important but I'm pretty sure you got enough amps anyway. One of the most common mistakes made is getting an "overkill" PSU. We even have a CLUB for it here at OCN

Go HERE for a PSU wattage calculator: http://extreme.outervision.com/psucalculatorlite.jsp . Be as specific as you can. Use the following settings in there:

Motherboard: High End Desktop
CPU TDP - 90%
System Load - 90%
Capacitor Aging - Leave blank as "Select"

My sig rig uses 550W and I have a 750W PSU which I bought partially because I want to have 2 working PSUs in case one fails. Both my 550W and 750W work equally fine as tested through stressing and benching and gaming.

That said, please tell us what the BSOD code is (the first one at the bottom, usually looks like 0x0000000124 or something like that, and is not within parantheses). You'll need to set options in Windows so that the computer doesn't automatically reboot after the memory dump, because that often makes it realyl hard to see what the error code is in time. You can also go to Control Panel -> Event Viewer -> Administrative Events and check the Error message there. I think it says Kernel-power or something along that line.

Finally, do not use the auto tune function. If you want to OC you should research a little bit about the CPU but really its not very hard. Getting to 4.5ghz is a piece of cake but there's still a few things you need to know before getting started. We can help you a lot better once you know the basics.

thanks for that. yea i did calculator and it said:
Minimum PSU Wattage:416 W
Recommended PSU Wattage: 466 W

if i left something out, it would probably be a little bit more. still dont know why my PC would get a BSOD when i tried to auto clock it didnt even do anything to it when i tried. Guess the only way is to do it manually. oh and the BSOD was Blue screen 0x000000F4 i remember seeing an F4 at the end.

Don't use auto OC... First of all, go to the back of your IO ports and push the Clear CMOS button.

Now go to into BIOS by pressing del at boot. Go to advanced mode and AI tweaker.

Put multiplier to 44x. Put RAM speed at 1333MHz. Change all timings to 9-9-9-27-2t.

Now, go to your power options and put everything on extreme or 140%.

At your voltage settings, put manual mode and use 1.265v. Boot into windows and run prime... If it fails, put vcore to 1.270v. If it fails again, put it up one more notch.


NEVER USE AUTO, because they are REALLY REALLY BAD.

yea i did what the guy in the video done:

AI overclock tuner: manual
Turbo ratio: in the bios
all core ratio limit: 4.8
memory frequency: 1600
timing control: 9-9-9-28-2
load line calibration: ultra high
phase: extreme
duty control: extreme
cpu voltage: manual
cpu:1.4
dram voltage 1.65

The rest i left unchanged and on auto. Is there anything else i should do or change?

Nope.. that is pretty good. Although I would consider going down to 4.4 GHz. You are not going to see any real performance gains on 4.8GHz, and 1.4v might degrade your CPU. Also Put LLC on extreme and lower your Vcore by 2 notches. If you put on Ultra High, it will run higher voltage when you are idle, and lower when you are full load. It is really really stupid design.

vcore by 2 notches so thats 1.2v? and how do u test or see the changes? like a program bcause i dont know how to read cpu z, and it looks the same to me b4 i even OC.

vcore by two notches means two settings down... so I think for 1.4v, it would be 1.390v. If it is 1.280v, it would be 1.270v.. Essentially, just minus your needed stable vcore by 0.010v.


CPU-z has a voltage checker... use that to check current voltage.

ok i changed it to 4.4 core ratio limit, llc to extreme, changed to 140% and cpu voltage to 1.265. All good? how do you change the multiplier? where do i start to notice performance?

@ OP

Your Seasonic 620w will run circles around that rig, hell a quality 550w would run it, it's more than enough and anyone who tells you it's not is badly misinformed.

Run system at stock make sure to set the RAM, either manually or via xmp. Then try running prime for a few minutes, just to see if everything is working correctly. Then go ahead and start making your bios changes. If you need help with that, head over to my sandy stable club

Multiplier is the core ratio. you put 44 in that box.

You should run prime95 first for a couple of hours to see if it is stable. That setting is stable for me, but since we have different chips, it might not be stable for you.

Go ahead and run small FFT in prime95. when you fail, increase the vcore by 1 setting and do prime96 again.

If you want to benchmark your performance, get intel burn test, and use that to record your GFLOPS.
