My understanding that this bsod is normally cpu bound specifically to overclocks. My goal was 4.5 ghz. I noticed LLC was set to standard on my board. I have the gigabyte z77x-ud5h from gigabyte. They have many levels for LLC. I've ran linx and Intel burn to verify stability, but I noticed I ahve to for 4.5 ghz set LLC to LOW which usually results on load with a about 1.308 voltage on CPU. Temps are great, but I was reading somewhere on here as well a chart that showed 1.3 being not average or horrible for 2500k. I believe 90 percent could about do 1.28 or so. Anyway is it normal for a 2500k at 4.5 ghz overclock to need any LLC selected, mine is set to low. So i was wondering if this is a normal setting at about 4.5 to need to be turned on for stability, or is my chip heading south.
To run my 2500k at 4.5ghz, I either have to set my vCore to like 1.38v or use 1.3v with my LLC set to very high on my Asus board. It doesn't mean anythings wrong, its completely normal, i hope this helps
