BSOD after OC'in i7-6700k - Page 3

post #21 of 28
Be careful with OC genie as it will apply way more voltage needed to maintain stability. If you plan to OC learning your bios is the only way I will recommend. Also when resetting settings things can sometimes get a bit wonky. Make sure to clcmos each time to ensure you are starting with a clean slate. Also run manual voltage to start I didn't read where you were using manual. Make sure it's manual. Set the voltage to something like 1.38V and boot at 3.5ghz slowly increasing clock once you ensure the previous speed is stable. While doing so make sure that xmp profile of the ram has not been applied. Keep the ram at stock to ensure ram is not causing the issue.

I'm still wondering one thing though. Have you encountered any sort of problems when booting the machine up for the first time before even trying to OC?

I never had an issue booting up before. Tomorrow when I have more time ill tinker a bit more. There has to be a cause.

Both came out of event viewer. Dont know if that's helpful. Also thanks for all the help you guys have provided.

I'm guessing no voltage setting worked for 4.3 GHz either? In that case I'd recommend resetting the bios to factory defaults, booting into win10 and monitoring the actual Vcore that is applied by the motherboard by using the HWinfo software. Take note of the min, max and the current values of the Vcore in HWinfo. If nothing seems suspicious there (a min or current value lower than 0.6 V or a max value higher than 1.5 V), then go into the bios menu once again and change nothing but the Vcore from auto to manual and type in 1.4 V. If that still gives you a BSOD then I'd suspect of a defective motherboard (its voltage regulator in particular).

So got around and did what you suggested. Currently Vcore 1.30v and 4.3ghz. I wanna run this for a little and see how it goes. If it remains stable i'll push it up a little. Again thanks for all the suggestions!

Because for instance as a silicon lottery loser I know my lousy 6700K wouldn't even boot at 4.5 GHz with anything lower than a 1.37 Vcore.

exactly what I was thinking. My 6600k won't boot at 4.5 either. Highest clock I ever got it to boot to was 4.4 and no amount of voltage would stabilize it there, only would stabilize at 4.2
