Degradation of what? Mobo, PSU, CPU?

Also something i forgot to include in my original post is that i had realtemp running when Prime95 crashed and with no load cores were running around 29-30C but it recorded a max temp during the test of 90-92C... Is that high of temp normal under Prime95? It's been so long since i OC'd my system i cannot remember how high it was when i got it stable a couple of years ago.

Didn't realize you said that you had a BSOD. 101 is related to vcore on Sandy and Ivy.

Adding more banks of memory and just generally increasing the size can be enough to show problems with an overclock that's just barely stable. I'd give the vcore a slight nudge and then go to the VCCIO voltage if that didn't work.

The sudden instability most likely correlates more with the added memory and not CPU degradation.

I added 0.005 to vcore power and i bumped PLL Voltage to 1.890v and for an hour and a half on Prime95 it was stable. I'm going to run Prime95 all night and i'll report back tomorrow. Granted i am at 4.5 and not 4.6 like i was before but to be honest i think for my usage it's not going to matter if i go down to that.

CPU. It's a normal thing,you're running the chip at a higher voltage and higher frequency.

Just a final update... I ran Prime95 all night for 12 and a half hours and i had no errors with Prime95 itself and no BSOD. Temps looked good on RealTempGT and HWiNFO64 and more importantly no more WHEA-LOGGER errors.
