Help troubleshooting BSOD 124 in 2500k overclock on Z77

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello nice fellas, i seem to incounter some problems with my setup, here it goes:
I have no idea what's happening =))))))))

Jokes aside, i can't seem to find a stable clock for my baby, i'm on the stock cooler, waiting for an AIO, so i was roaming around 3.3-3.8, but i can't seem to nail the settings/voltages on this board( Asus P8Z77-V LX2) , if i reset to default, sh*) goes sideways, my clocks& voltages jump around like crazy, and i BSOD randomly, so i was trying the manual way, but Z77 is a bit different from my common Z68 which i used to OC on, so it seems like i can run 3.6 on 1.368 v, which is crazy, but i managed to hit 5.0 bootable and Cinebanch-able (is this a word?) but after 20 mins or rendering at 1.398 v it crashed, i declared myself a happy OC-er and reverted to 3.6. The problem is that if i stress it properly, Prime95 small fft and a video playing in the background, i receive a BSOD in 10 mins aprox, no matter the voltage.
My question is, can someone experienced and having a z77 board with a Sandy, teach me the dark ways of stabilizing this?Or is it my motherboard?

I would be his apprentice forever,
Thanks fo' reading, and sorry if this is not in the right section, i'm still accomodating.

Are you still on the stock cooler with those 1.3v+ voltages??? If you are you are definitely going to damage your CPU with high temps.

Yes, i am still on the stock cooler, but the temps are 70-75-80, they are fine(waiting for an AIO) , after a lot of fiddling, i came to the conclusion that the board is to blame, with it's 4+2 power design, maybe not capable of delivering voltage how it is supposed to.Anyone knows why the vccsa is 1.05 on this board by default? I upped it to 1.15 and seems more stable now.
