I have been overclocking for about 5 hours straight now and I have yet to get it anywhere near stable. First I just tried overclocking by lowering the ram speed and raising the voltage and multiplier, no luck there. Then I tried some of the tips from this thread, like raising the vRing and VIN voltage. This allowed me to actually boot at a higher multiplier but stability was still poor.
Aida 64 and Prime 95 tests usually last quite a while, all though they will crash as well after 30-60m with BSOD error 0124. I also mix in OCCT now and then, not the best tool but it usually finds the instability pretty quickly by crashing everything in less than 2 minutes. Temperature is also not the issue, I'm running a Dark Rock Pro 2 and average on load is 75°.
I am running out of idea's here, I just spent $2500 on a monster rig and my CPU is a total dud. Like I said before, I can't even get 4.4 stable at 1.3v. It's frustrating me so hard!
Tips always welcome, other than throwing it out the window. Edited by Primithras - 8/17/13 at 10:06am
