Ram makes 3770k 4.5ghz unstable? Need help!

post #1 of 31
Thread Starter 
So I got to my goal of 4.5ghz (Sort of). I ran small FFTs with Prime95 for 5.5 hours before i got a bluescreen: 0x124. I've been messing around with the QPI/VTT voltage and the DRAM voltage. I only get the BSOD when I'm overclocking, and i get it faster when I'm using Blende test on Prime95 (than Small FFTs). I have tried X.M.P and to input the settings for the RAM myself.

vCore: .1330v
Tested DRAM voltages: 1.5v, 1.55v, 1.65v,

I also played about 1.5 hours on BF4 while overclocking before i got a BSOD (0x124)

Thanks for replies and help!

Try 4.4, mine doesn't seem to like 4.5GHz

Ok, but I think it is the ram.

No it's not the memory, 0x124 is VCORE bud. Sometimes it's memory, but considering you are only putting 1.30v into it and have standard 1600MHz memory I highly doubt it's the memory. It's definitely VCORE. 1.35v is standard for a 4.5GHz overclock.

Yeah, I would be willing to bet it is the vcore also. I would have been more inclined to believe it was memory related if you were running a higher frequency kit but 1600mhz should be no issue for most if not all 3770k's IMC and xmp profile should be fine as well. Has to be your cpu voltage man.thumb.gif

Remember just because 1.35v for 4.5GHz is standard it doesn't make it definite. Some might need 1.36v for 4.5GHz. Not all chips are created equal.

I tried to use 1.36v but I i still get the 0x124 BSOD. It came even faster now....

All it means is your chip isn't any good. Drop down to 4.4GHz.

Did anyone notice that it says 3.3V on his first post?

Refer to this link for BSOD codes when overclocking:
