Updated BIOS - Previous OC settings result in BSODs

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I decided a few days ago that I'd make the plunge to Windows 8. Since I'd be starting clean, I figured I could do a BIOS updated for the hell of it (despite it not really being related to the OS, I thought). My motherboard is the MSI Z68A-GD80 (B3).

The BIOS update was successful, and it went from Click BIOS I to Click BIOS II, which wasn't mentioned anywhere in the BIOS update notes (loving the updated design!).

My usual overclock was at 4.5GHz with a vcore of 1.310, which I've been running at for well over a year with no issues whatsoever, and it's completely stable with my H212+.

Windows 7 was working just fine after the BIOS update. So, before I installed Windows 8, I went into the OC settings to restore what I had. Unfortunately, Windows kept throwing me a BSOD. I don't remember the full error strings, but a few of them were (shortened) 0x9, 0x24, 0x124. Since these are all typical related towards the voltage of the CPU, I went in and changed my vcore, both adding and subtracting to it. Nothing worked. I've enabled/disabled some other things, but it just wouldn't work. I eventually had enough BSODs to where Windows 7 wouldn't bootup anymore (I think my SSD was full of memory dumps and couldn't bootup (this just occurred to me now)).

I restored the OC to its default settings, installed Windows 8, and everything was fine. After reapplying my previous OC settings, the same thing would happen, but I got a different BSOD message. Either I'm not messing with my vcore enough, or there's something in else in the new BIOS that needs to be modified.

You'll find images of my previous settings (Click BIOS I), restored settings (Click BIOS II), and of the Windows 8 BSOD.

What should I do? Is there a new magic setting that I'm not aware of that needs to be checked?

A new bios will often change up your llc settings. I'd be willing to bet that's where your problem is. Play around with those until you find the same voltage under load as what you had before.

Are you referring to "CPU PLL Voltage?" If not, then what should I mess with?
