Need Help (BSOD'ing)

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Before I start the post, here are the related specs:
Mobo = Asus Sabertooth Z77
CPU = i5 2500k formerly @ 4.5GHz

Sup guys,
I've recently been getting BSOD's on my computer, which did not start happening until about a month or 2 ago. After the first few (which were 124 BSOD's) I updated my bios, overclocked my CPU to 4.5GHz again, and I was better, but not perfect. The BSOD's still came, they were just a bit less common (maybe this is just the placebo effect and its actually the exact same rate, I dunno). However, after a few weeks of coping with it, I just decided to set my CPU back to default settings. Seems like a decent anti-bsod strategy, right?
Nope. I've recently gotten another BSOD, but this time, it had the 1A extension. Does this even relate to overclocking?
Can someone direct me to a good overclocking guide corresponding to my processor/mobo? I followed old guides such as http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WMZoWOpry40 but maybe they're outdated or something? I simply want to overclock to 4.5GHz and be stable...and I don't know whats going on if I get BSOD's at 1.35V on 4.5GHz.

Thanks for the help in advance thumb.gif

EDIT: These BSOD's would happen at pretty random times, I could be playing a game like Arma 2, or browsing(although I do use a ****load of tabs + iTunes...memory issue maybe? I have 8GB of RAM), but it would happen in both cases

What settings did you use & what are 'C' states set to ?

In the meantime, you can check out this guide here.

1A message is usually ram related. Run memtest and see what the results are. The easiest way to run it is to download and burn to disk the bootable iso. Reboot to the iso and let it run. Good luck.

Well right now everything is at default, I dont remember what the default settings are for the C states (Think they're enabled by default? Could be wrong though)

As Nanoprobe stated earlier, A1 is usually memory related. Since you have everything set to default, try upping your memory volts from 1.5v to 1.53v & check.

Alright, will up the voltage and then run memtest and update after I'm done

Those are the initial results. Still running, when should I stop? I dont have prior experience w/Memtest.

EDIT: 138 errors with 0 pass...I think I found the issue :/

So...now what? Do I have to buy new RAM?
