i7 2600k OC PROBLEMS. Help needed - Page 2

post #11 of 34
Thread Starter 
Hmm ok thanks for the input guys smile.gif.

BSOD error code is 0x124.

I made a log of what I've done in the last half hour;
45 multiplier tests
Test 1
-vcore 1.37v
-pll 1.6v
-qpi/vtt 1.1v
*Prime 95 blend test - instant BSOD error code 0x124
Test 2
-vcore 1.38v
-pll 1.6v
-qpi/vtt 1.1v
*Prime 95 blend test - instant BSOD error code 0x124
Test 3
-vcore 1.4v
-pll 1.6v
-qpi/vtt 1.1v
*Prime 95 blend test - slightly delayed BSOD error code 0x124

Previous test at higher voltages (1.44 vcore and 1.9 pll) had no bsod, but prime gave hardware failure errors on at least one core every test. i dont know what to make of this.

With regards to the temps, before I installed the H100, idle temps (stock clocks) were 30~40 degrees. With H100 (stock clocks), idle is 40~60 degrees. Clearly something is wrong. I'll try to pick up some new thermal paste and reseat the block when I can. Any suggestions on a good thermal compound to use?

*EDIT* Also, BIOS says vcore is set to 1.4v, BUT HWmoniter and CPUID both say vcore is 1.09v... ***?!

Ya, your Vcore in your cpuid shot reads 1.06v. Hmmm! That would explain your BSOD!

How does the vcore become 1.06v when its set at 1.4v in bios and bios says (under the system health page) its 1.36v? Major issue here?

*EDIT* Anyone heard of this as a hardware fault? When I built this pc late last year there were some issues with the psu, so I had it replaced and no more problems there. I tested everything else as well at the time to be sure there were no other problems with components. Everything was fine except when XMP memory profile was enable there were alot of errors when running memtest 86. It was fine with xmp disabled, so I figured it wasnt working because something elsewhere needed to be bumped to be able to cope with it. Anyone have any experience with that?

*EDIT 2* ATM at stock clocks cpu temp is 48c idle

Too high!!! You have to reseat your cooler!
My idle temp is 29c-31c
Download CPUz, post a screen.

You should put your ram specs in manually as well.

Haha too late I took the heatsink out... Can't use my pc now to get any more info...

The thermal compound on the cpu was thin and uneven.. I'll buy some more and reseat it. Could you recommend a good brand/product to use?

While the cooler is being sorted, how about a brainstorm on causes for those odd voltage readings and stuff? Think it's solely causes by the massive amount of heat?

Thanks for the help so far everyone, really appreciate it smile.gif

Use the Gigabyte overclocking utility, if I remember correctly Gigabyte Z68 boards and possibly P67 boards as well report false readings. EasyTune is the Gigabyte overclocking Utility you should be using to read all your settings.

Arctic Cooling MX-2/MX-4 are good paste. Otherwise if you have any extra paste you can use that as well, the temperature differences between paste are going to be very minimal as long as you apply it correctly.

Okay thanks for the info mate. I'll pick up some of that paste within a day or so provided the local store have it in stock. I'll install EasyTune and use that to monitor the voltages when I get the system up and running again.

Your voltage problem could be related to temp. when AMD chips get too hot they burn out but the intel chips throttle down the voltage to save the chip. this could be what you are experiencing. as for thermal compound, I have had great results with feser h-bridge: http://www.frozencpu.com/products/8798/thr-56/Feser_H-Bridge_CPU_GPU_NB_MOSFET_Thermal_Compound_-_5g.html?tl=g8c127s993. I love the stuff. It's non-conductive, non-curing, easy to spread and it performs exceptionally well. if you don't want to wait for shipping, Radio Shack actually carries arctic silver 5 which is always a safe bet.
