Here is my current OC seems stable thus far:
Try isolating the bclk and see how high you can go.
Go CPU config -> c states/turbo off
Go manual OC
CPU multi at 12x
Ram at lowest option
Uncore at at least 1.5x ram speed
Vcore at 1.1
QPI at 1.3
QPI data rate at lowest non-slow mode
Pretty much everything else on auto (can turn on LLC, turn off spread spectrums).
If I were to guess it would be that your uncore is too high for your qpi voltage, but it could be a few other things....
