Its better to do detailed subsystem tests before pinning it down to mem or cpu-nb voltages.
I start with cpu stock, mem stock, and bumping the cpu-nb to max stable.
Then only cpu core to max stable.
Followed by only max mem stable.
Then combine the overclocks and pinpoint issues with that, otherwise you have too many unknowns and glitches to track down.
The only voltage that seems out of the normal bounds for 4.5ghz is the Vcore. While CPU-NB is a bit high, it shouldnt affect stability other than pushing temps up.
Also, make sure that your BIOS is absolutely up to date or at least a known stable revision.
My experienced came from OC'ing this cpu my first bulldozer, but it seems not to be true that 0x0D1 is IMC/memory, i just got a new bsod just under 2 hours.
And I am doing a detailed subsystem test, starting with the Cpu clock, everything else IS at stock, but the cpu/nb voltage which is 1.275v now instead of 1.2v.
The only variable i have is the cpu clock.
Tonight when i go to sleep all try another setting, 4.5ghz @ 1.4v + LLC extreme
The rest is at stock, only raised the cpu/nb voltage to 1.275v due to 16gb ram.
I'm using BIOS 1003. The lastest.
