i5-2500k stabilizing issues ...

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I'm having some difficulties stabilizing my system. I have it clocked currently at 4.5GHz, and it will run fine for 1-4 hours, but will crash even at idle. I've done some burn test with Prime95 and things go pretty well for a while but 1-2 hours in, one of the workers will fail, the remaining three work just fine for at least 4 hours. Additionally, I've been able to complete multiple benchmarks using 3dMark 11 w/o any problems.

When my system does crash, the BSoD error I get is 0x00000124, which from my research is pretty generic. Also, I've tried raising and lowering the voltages on my CPU and my RAM, but it only causes increased instability. I would surely appreciate any advice. If i can get stabilized at 4.5GHz I'd really like to try and push it to the 4.8-5 GHZ range, but one step at a time.

What voltage you got on the CPU?
I only need 1.31v for 4.5
