I think my 4670K is causing BSOD's

post #1 of 75
Thread Starter 
Hi guys,

My PC's been getting BSOD's lately and I've been told it's either my CPU or motherboard. CPU is a 4670k and mobo is an MSI GD65. So I tried overclocking a few times and it turns out I can't get more than 4.0ghz stable at reasonable voltages. It'd crash randomly, I add more volts and still crashed. Had it at 1.38v and still crashed but was fine at 3.8ghz with 1.2v. I tried to see what would happen if I used adaptive voltage at 4.0ghz but after the reboot it froze at the bios.

Turned it off and back on, wouldn't boot so turned it back off and turned it back on to the same outcome a few times. Left it off for a few minutes then turned it back on, bios came up and I quickly returned it to stock clocks. So that's the story to my situation. Question is how can I tell if it's my mobo or cpu that has become faulty?

Thanks.

It can also be the power supply. What's the make and model of yours?

It's a Seasonic Platinum 1000. Have had it for about 2 months. Also got 290 crossfire if that helps.

Aw man, so then it's not the PSU.

 

That's the best that I can. I'm confident though that others will be replying who can help better.

If the system drive is going bad it can cause unstable behavior that can mislead us to believe we have unstable CPU speeds/voltages. There's a good chance the CPU and Motherboard are fine.

Pc is only 5 months old. Only thing that I see out of the normal is FIrefox lagging.

Drives can fail at any time. It's a common source of problems.

Well I replaced the cpu and everything is running smooth again. Haven't had a BSOD but the system asks me for a device to boot from at startup sometimes.
