If the Vcore doesn't help try messing with some of the memory related voltages. And to help rule memory out I'd probably put the core back to stock, set the memory to XMP or manually to the specified timings/voltage and run Memtest 86+ overnight. Anytime I get new memory I do that to rule out memory issues from the start.

Also, have you looked over the ASUS specific guides? There are a few ASUS specific settings that should be disabled to help with stability. http://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?33488-Maximus-VI-Series-UEFI-Guide-for-Overclocking&country=&status=

I think its a bad chip, ask for replacement.

His or mine? Mine is on the poor side of things, but not worthy of an RMA. P95 version 28.5, which is what I tested with, just requires a lot more voltage than X264 or really most of the other stress tests.

If he tests his at stock and it's still giving him BSODs then I'd ask for a replacement. Otherwise, I'd keep working at it. Supposedly some chips just top out at a certain frequency no matter how much voltage you throw at them. 4.3 really isn't that bad.

Most chips can be overclocked up to 4.5ghz, your's pretty bad, are you using stock cooler? do a stress test and compare cpu temp with others. You might need to delid. you also have a great chance to ask for replacement if it runs significantly hotter than others.

You bought the K-series, it was meant to be overclocked wink.gif.

Youll struggle to return a cpu because its a bad clocker and runs hot (like all haswell chips do past a certain point).
