All my rig details are in my sig below, but the short version - 3770k, Z77X-UD5H, (2)GTX 660Ti SC, 4x4gb Ripjaws Z 2133.
Quick story recap:
I had the rig stable at 4.5ghz, 1.28vcore. Came home one day, started the computer, left the room. Came back 15 minutes later, stuck on the Windows loading screen. Attempted a reboot, got a BSOD. Went into BIOS, found no CPU fan speed, 88c core temp. RMA'ed my H220, got new unit, installed. Set up same overclock - P95 crashes within 15-20 minutes.
I've been playing a bit more with vcore - was running 1.30 last night when I was at home - still get the same problem - P95 either crashes or system shuts down and does error recovery within 15-20 minutes. Temps are good - no more than 70c on P95. I've also backed off from Profile2 on XMP to Profile1. (They both seem to be 2133 speed, so not sure what the differences are between them). Also, both CPU-Z and Hardware Monitor show my vcore as more in the 1.25 range under load even though it's set to 1.30 in BIOS.
System seems to be fine other than P95. I do get some dump to desktop or hang on area loading screen in Skyrim, but this could well be attributed to the 100+ mods I'm running. Plus CPU usage never goes above 40% or so on Skyrim and RAM usage is sub 30%. Temps stay in the mid to upper 50's playing that game. I've also played a bit of BF3 recently with no issues.)
Let me know if there's any more info that would be useful and any suggestions.
I may try to go all the way to 1.35 on the vcore. I'm guessing that running Memtest might be a good idea as well.
