OC Unstable BSOD

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I've the 3570K overclocked to 4.5GHz which is stable with 1.295V and 1.320V at full load with Gigabyte Z77 D3H motherboard, 8GB RAM and using onboard graphics, I have overclocked it for around a year but recently these 3 weeks, I keep getting BSOD,

Does overclock become unstable over a time period?

Thanks

I can't say if its normal but i can attest to my own experiences. Mine was first stable at 1.29 then a few months later it was bsoding and finally stopped after i gave it 1.30. Now about a year later it wanted a little more again, 1.305 this time.

I wouldn't say it becomes unstable per se, but rather that it requires more juice. Did you take note of what the BSOD error code was? If you did, cross reference it to the BSOD list and attempt to troubleshoot it.

Most likely, you'll have to either bring the overclock down a notch or up the Vcore. Good luck ^^
