Must have done a number on the system files from too many crashes on boot. I'm pretty sure I experienced the 0x80 error and maybe the 0x40 error as well at some point but after reloading Windows all the problems went away. Worth a shot?

I think my windows install should still be OK, since I didn't get any checkdisk prompt. If you start getting checkdisk prompts, there's a good chance you have corrupt files on your hard drive.

I'll check in a few days if there's any errors with the new settings (4.0 ghz, 1.2 vcore), and if it's OK I probably won't mess around with it again.

It seems like overclocking's getting more complicated now.. Next build I probably won't OC anymore. It used to be pretty straightforward. Set FSB speed & vcore, and that's it. Now there's other voltages involved that I don't even understand, and I hear haswell's a huge pain to OC properly.

I wasn't aware of the fact that it would produce silent errors. I thought an unstable OC = crash.

Well, if I continue getting these warnings (and it's listed as a warning, not an error, which seems to be misleading) then I'll probably put it back to stock settings. Not worth overclocking if it's going to cause problems.

You should stress test any OC. Hell, even stock is no guarantee of stability.

Most errors aren't going to be obvious, at least not at first, and there is a huge space between stable and crashing frequently in general usage.

Stock IS pretty much guaranteed to be stable, unless you got a defective chip. Intel does much more thorough tests w/ specialized machines then you or me can do regardless of what software or methods we use to test it.

Intel cannot control any other components in the system, nor are they responsible for configuration problems.

A lot of stock systems are not stable, even if the CPU is fine.

And of course, there are rarely outright defective CPUs, sometimes whole CPU lines: the original P5, the highest clocked Coppermines, the Phenoms with the TLB bug, etc.
