Bumping VCCIOD to +0.05 and I would get start getting 101 errors instead of 124s. Increasing Vcore at that point would then be stable. Reducing VCCIOD while leaving Vcore at the new value would go back to giving 124 errors. So it seems like you will get 124 errors before the chip even has a chance to be tested for Vcore.
My uncore is set to auto so it drop to 4000 MHz for a 45 CPU ratio (strap 1.00).
I left a lot of thing on auto to reduce potential BSOD.
Basically only my CPU ratio and vCore are set manually.
Same settings as my previous capture at the moment in my BIOS ; but i only have increased the vCore from 1,21v to 1,215v.
I get a freeze 20 minutes later in AIDA64 test run despite the one hour run with 1,21v.
Reset, boot sequence, and BSOD124 just when arrived on the Windows 7 desktop.
On a side note, i played with the strap, 1.25 to get a different 4,5GHz and to see how it can affect vCore.
I made a 30 minutes AIDA64 run decreased to 1,205v.
Yes, this BSOD124 does not seems to be only related to the vCore, and i can't find out the culprit as most everything is in auto in my BIOS.
I have the impression maybe the BIOS are not mature, or whatever i don't know, but i'm stuck on that question.Edited by The Real Deal - 7/14/13 at 11:58pm
