i5 2500k overclocking problems...

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey everybody!
I am having trouble with my overclock.(you can see specs below) I am currently at 4.5 GHz and 1.350V(BIOS)/1.368V(CPU-Z). Any lower and it is not stable. I am happy because a ran 12 hours of prime95 and 100 loops of linx.
My problem is i get BSOD 124 when the PC is idle. After an hour or so of idling it just randomly BSODs. I tried with all of the power saving feature on and off. Nothing changed. I am truly baffled.
If anybody has any clue as to what is going on please help.
Thanks.

You might just be experiencing the '2500K idle bug', whereas even if you've passed some intense stress test, and been stable, it will crash at the desktop.

Do you have the latest BIOS for your board? I would see if your board has an updated BIOS that may address this issue. I'm not familiar with that board, so perhaps another member can give you some more effective advice if what I have suggested doesn't do the trick. smile.gif

If you look at the sandy stable club, they have a section about the idle 124 bsod.

hey mate, I've been having this problem with my 2500k too, and it's funny because mine also needs 1.368v to do 4.5ghz, the solution for me was to lower the pll to 1.600v and turn on Spread spectrum.

Since then I haven't had any problems whatsoever tongue.gif
