Haswell OC Troubleshooting - BSOD after hours of use?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello all, long time reader, recently joined to ask this knowledable community some advice!

I recently purchased a 4770k, ASRock z87 Extreme 4 (which I really don't recommend, by the way) , GSkill 16x2 2166 RAM setup. I'm cooling with a Corsair H110, and have found a setup that I *thought* was working totally fine, but I'm having weird issues. I have the vcore set to adaptive, 1.225 V with a .005 V offset. Multiplier is 45, RAM is XMP profile 1 to 2166 9-11-11-31. I had originally used override 1.225 V and it passed stability testing in AIDA64, so I moved onto adaptive with the same setting. It passed stability there too, but then had a random hardware BSOD after a couple hours of use. I then added that tiny offset thinking maybe it just needed a little extra juice and changed the cache multiplier from 45 back to Auto, yet today it did the same thing. Temps seem fine, the stability tests pass, it benchmarks and all that in AIDA64, and yet something is crashing it. Perhaps there's an issue with it trying to go into sleep mode, or a power state, or something? I thought I had changed the win7 profile to extreme, but I may be remembering incorrectly.

I will post dump logs when I get home and can reboot the machine (whatever caused the BSOD, it didn't restart the PC, and neither logmein or team viewer are responsive at the moment).

Has anyone run into this, or have any thoughts? Thanks!

Reset all settings in your BIOS to default first. Then set your multiplier. DO NOT USE OFFSET FOR YOUR VOLTAGE. I cannot stress this enough. Offset rarely ever works. I recommend trial and error and manually setting your voltages. Start high but not too high and work your way down in increments of 0.005V until you BSOD. If you have anymore questions, just ask.

Are you familiar with any reason that the system might crash after hours of use? It runs AIDA64 just fine, but seems to spontaneously bite it randomly down the line. I actually ended up replacing that terrible motherboard, the new one arrives today and hopefully will solve my issue.

The most common reason would be overheating or unstable voltage. As I said, using offset usually doesn't work. How long do you stress test?

Part of the original problem may have been that I wasn't stress testing long enough. However, I just put in the replacement Asus Maximus VI Hero mobo, and the difference in quality was immediately apparent. I'm still not able to really do 4.5 with the XMP profile for the RAM loaded, so that may be a chip limitation and not a board limitation, but all I had to do was slightly reduce the RAM clock speeds (and I was able to tighten the timings too, actually), to get it stable. It also easily switched from manual to adaptive voltage on the new board. I'm satisfied!
