i7 950 Overclock - My CPU Hates me...

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Well, finally I got to 4.2GHz and the system started up - but that is about it. Opening prime95 and running blend freezes the system instantly... With a "unsolvable hardware error" BSOD. Any help?
Specs in signature.

Also, please don't tell me to "FOLLOW THIS GUIDE ____". I have done that with no luck >_>.
I'm running this system posting this thread at the moment on this 4.2 fine... also, the system takes longer to start up (on the windows 7 "Welcome" screen, with the little circle thing... it moves slower.)

I cant see your pics (damn mil pc's). But it crashing means its unstable, your either going to need to bring your clock rate back or increase your voltage. Which BSOD are you getting thats a big help when stablizing an OC.

BSOD codes for overclocking
0x101 = increase vcore
0x124 = increase/decrease vcore or QPI/VTT...have to test to see which one it is
0x0A = unstable RAM/IMC, increase QPI first, if that doesn't work increase vcore
0x1E = increase vcore
0x3B = increase vcore
0x3D = increase vcore
0xD1 = QPI/VTT, increase/decrease as necessary
0x9C = QPI/VTT most likely, but increasing vcore has helped in some instances
0x50 = RAM timings/Frequency or uncore multi unstable, increase RAM voltage or adjust QPI/VTT, or lower uncore if you're higher than 2x
0x109 = Not enough or too Much memory voltage
0x116 = Low IOH (NB) voltage, GPU issue (most common when running multi-GPU/overclocking GPU)
0x7E = Corrupted OS file, possibly from overclocking. Run sfc /scannow and chkdsk /r

QPI link speed - 7.2GHz


You might want to try something to the tune of half that.
