BSOD after setting CPU voltage?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi all, first off I want to say I'm new to this forum and just recently built my first gaming rig, so I apologize if my questions seem stupid/nubbish.
I have an i7-3770 that's been the guinea pig of my overclocking experiments. I'd been increasing the multiplier and finally got to x43, at which point the stability was somewhat compromised. I checked CPU-Z to see how much voltage it was getting, and it was about 1.05-1.06 so I decided to change the core voltage from auto to 1.07V. Rebooted, and instantly got a BSOD with the bug check code 0x00000124. It kept trying to reboot and got BSODed every time until I went back into the BIOS and changed the core voltage to auto again. Some searching led me to believe the core voltage was too low, but why would that be when CPU-Z shows that the voltage on auto is around the same value that I set? Was 1.07V too low? I'm a little nervous about increasing it too much.

1.07 is far to low
