2600K BSOD with very low temps.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi, I am somewhat new to overclocking. Just build an awesome PC. 2600k, asus maximus iv extreme p67 with an EK h30 supreme hf 360 water cooler. Got it overclocked to 4.5ghz with 1.34vcore very very stable. Problem is, anything more and I get a BSOD with multiple variations of vcore and multiplier. So far everything has booted fine, as high as 5ghz but I will get BSOD after Prime95. Sometimes right away as in 5ghz, other times hours later with 4.6. The thing is my cpu temps are very low, never more than 61*C and that's at 4.9ghz! Everywhere else I've read that temps were the issue. I will send my BIOS info shortly. Thanks for any help.

#1 Disable CPU PLL over-voltage and set your CPU PLL voltage from Auto to 1.70v

Retest

#2 If that fails, enable CPU PLL over-voltage and set your CPU PLL voltage from 1.70 to 1.86v

Retest

If both of those fail revert to recommendation #1 and this time set QPI/VTT voltage to 1.10v

Retest

If that fails revert to recommendation #2 and this time set QPI/VTT voltage to 1.10v

Retest

Thank you for your help. It appears that the furthest I got without crashing (BSOD code 0x101 or 0x124) was 4.6ghz which still seems pretty low. However, that was with large FFT prime95 testing, I am having much better luck with blend FFT prime95 testing. I've been told that if large FFT prime95 testing fails but blend or low FFT seems to work, the ram might be the problem. Before I start testing this theory, I posted my settings to see if ram is setup wrong or anything else setup wrong. Thanks! Here's my memory

G.SKILL Trident X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2400 (PC3 19200)

• DDR3 2400 (PC3 19200)
• Timing 10-12-12-31
• Cas Latency 10
• Voltage 1.65V


Here's my Motherboard settings

How are you running your memory at 2400MHz, Sandy Bridge is limited to like 2200MHz?

Well I set the memory frequency 1600mhz

Not that this will help/hurt your BSOD problem, but you're running your primary memory timings way way too loose for DDR3 1600Mhz speeds.

As long as you're going to keep your memory running at DDR3 1600Mhz use 9-9-9-24 1T for the primary memory timings and set your DRAM voltage somewhere between 1.51v and 1.55v

So if this were my rig here are the primary things I'd set;

Clear CMOS and load BIOS default values.

Check / set only the following;

Ai Overclock Tuner = Manual
Bclk = 100
Maximum Turbo Ratio = All Cores / 46
CPU Voltage = 1.35v
CPU PLL Overvoltage = Disabled
Memory Frequency = DDR3 1600Mhz
Memory Timings = 9-9-9-24 1T
Memory Voltage = 1.51 to 1.55v
EPU Power Saving Mode = Disabled
VCCIO Voltage = 1.10v
CPU PLL Voltage = 1.72v

Leave everything else on Auto for now.

Use OCCT to test with, that way you can view voltage and temperature logs at the completion of the test. Test using the medium data set to begin with. Test for 2 hours. If that passes then retest using large data set. If that passes retest using small data set.

May have to play with Loadline Calibration depending on cpu vdroop during extended heavy loading. However the settings above should get you 8+ hours stable on Prime95 without much other fuss at 4.6Ghz.

Once we have that threshold established we can push towards the 4.7 to 4.8Ghz mark.
