So I got 195 bclk stable tho for the life of me i still can't seem to run 200bclk for more than 10 minutes (maybe I need higher QPI?) Even then I really don't want to go above 1.35 v on qpi because i heard it causes damage to westmeres.

Here is my current OC seems stable thus far:

From my experience it's a Win10 issue. MS doesn't WANT you to run Win7. Google it and find the way to force the install. The problem is in the updates; ie the device drivers. I have to do this every time I load Win7.

I really dont see how this is possiable , given if its a original win7 from the past, maybe a new or from microsoft website a windows 7 could have something from win 10 that would hang up but i googled as suggested and couldnt find anything . how exactly can ms cause a install to hang ??

Have you tried "Startup Repair" after installation fails?

At 200BCLK, what are you setting the memory to? Also, do you get an error or it just freezes? If BSOD, share the code please.

Try this:
Reset your BIOS
set cpu to manual
DO NOT touch the memory settings except to run 1333MHz or below
21x multi
200BCLK
CPUv to 1.3v
CPU PLL 1.749
QPI to 1.3 for now (you will tweak this later)
IOHv to 1.1
IOH PCIEv 1.5
ICHv 1.1
ICH PCIEv 1.5
Both spread spectrums off
Turn off Hyperthreading

The undead thread lives on!

So I was curious, anyone here using the W3690? I want to use a W3690 in my laptop at stock clocks to replace the W3520 in it right now. What would I be seeing for temps and such. Its the fastest CPU I can socket in 1366 so its my current go to smile.gif

Side note, I finally may do an SR-2 to prolong my rigs lifetime

updated. it's going , turned out the issue was a bad stick of memory, working now with a newer dual channel set i had . guess ill be watching for a ddr3 memory sale.

Good deal. And I have had issues on every Win 7 install I've done in the last six months. And the issues are always different. Sometimes updates will fail, sometimes they boot loop (which running Startup Repair will usually fix), and I have an Asus board I had to pull all but one stick of memory out of to get it to load.
There are videos on Youtube that explain the underhanded procedures MS is using to coerce Win 10 on people. I don't run Windoze at all anymore. Linux Mint rules! thumb.gif

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
200 bclk
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....

Quick update: I've isolated bclk as suggested and this time made sure to lower the ram to the lowest option (had it slightly above 1600 before). It seems to done the trick I'm already at 210 with over a half hour of prime95.

Thank you @ Voxson5 and Srialmaster!
