I think you can just change the multiplier to 4.0 in bios and leave the rest, but you would have to try it and see.

Any freezing of any program while Prime95 trys to run usually means you are unstable and need to up voltage. You should not get any freezing, programs shutdowns, stopped workers or anything else unusual. A BSOD usually means you are definitely unstable (if the BSOD is chip oc related of course) but as you get closer to the right vCore you should not get BSOD so much as you get program freezes or stopped workers, and WHEA errors.

And at the "Operational" tab it shows 119 conflicts lol, So what i wanna ask is does it matter or do i only have to look at the "Error" tab?
Also i had my first BSOD (code 124) yesterday after 2 months of being stable, (well i thought.. ). It happened when i ran a random IBT run and it crashed at the 5th run.
Temps where all fine and in the past 2 months i didn't had 1 single crash or BSOD. Shall i raise the vcore a bit or leave it just as it is?
Thanks in advance.
WHEA issues in the Administrative Events folder, or in the Apps/Services-Microsoft-Windows-Kernel-WHEA-Errors folder mean you are unstable and usually need more vCore. The information under the Operational folder of Kernel-WHEA is not important, those are just informational.
I can’t say why you got the BSOD for sure, but a quick search seems to point to power states. Do you have the same C report states as in the guide?
