Now after 4 minutes of video encoding with RipBot the system crashes!!, the BSOD code is 0x124 according to WhoCrashed program. My original BIOS settings were:
CPU Vcore: 1.260v (CPU offset +0.150)
CPU Base Clock: 103MHz
CPU Clock Ratio: 4.7GHz
Uncore Freq: 4.5GHz
Turbo ratio clock: 4.7GHz (all cores)
System Memory Multiplier: 16
Memory Channel Timings: 8,8,8,24
Memory voltage: 1.5
All CPU energy saving option disabled, and everything else left as Auto.
I have tried you suggestion in your guide to help with trying to get my video encoding to finish without BSOD and changed:
CPU Offset disable and 1.260 manual vcore
CPU VRIN Override: 1.95v
CPU Ring Volt: 1.15v
But when I start a video encoding with RipBot it still BSOD within minutes. The strange thing is the more I up the vcore near to 1.3v and beyond the quicker the system seem to BSOD!, it's not heat related either as temps never go above 71c on any of the cores.
Do you have any suggestions?
Which board do you have?
Reduce your uncore to 42x, tell me what happens, don't change anything just reduce it to 42x. Also are you on GBT's latest BIOS? i think your settings look like GBT ones if you were able to disable all the power saving modes. You can also try vRing to 1.22v and override to 2.00v, or try setting it auto.

Im also using a 2133Mhz G.Skill memory (2x4Gb) is there anything else on the template that I need to change for this aside from loading up the XMP profile?
Yea go ahead, you should be fine man, there is also a memory compatibility list: http://download.gigabyte.asia/FileList/Memory/mb_memory_ga-z87x-d3h.pdf
however even if it isn't on there it should be okay.

Your ram or your CPU at stock settings as well? What BIOS changes have you made?
You can take out one of your GPUs and see if it comes back, but 124 BDOS is CPU most of the time and it shouldn't happen if it is a fresh OS installation and you aren't OCing your CPU.

Look like those settings aren't completely stable either...BSOD 2 hours into prime95.
I don't think I have a choice when it comes to vcore. It won't even let me boot into windows unless I give it ~1.3V. I'll try lowering the uncore. I remember passing 8 hours of blend test with similar settings when I didn't touch the PCH or I/O voltages. CPU-Z reads almost exactly what I set in BIOS. Yes, VRIN is on auto and seems like it must, but I'm getting the feeling I'm not doing something right since a vast majority of users seem to have good results with a higher VRIN.
Why not just use AIDA64? You don't want to degrade the CPU. That is terrible at the 1.3v! Listen can you try VIN at 2.1v for me? See if that helps? Are you setting the LLC to Extreme, right? If you don't and you set 1.3xV then the stock VIN will droop to 1.6v from 1.8v on auto and then mess everything up and might make your VCore droop without your consent. Also what is your Uncore?
