Is it my overclock?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I recently overclocked my cpu to 4.9 ghz (specs below) and ran stability tests at full load for 24 hours and everything seemed perfectly fine. Then, recently, when I was playing call of duty, my game froze, and then, the comp blue screened. Then, a couple of days later, I left my computer on for a day or two, and my comp blue screened again. I don't think it's my overclock but I can't think of anything else it might be. It's a brand new computer. Don't want to mess with the settings if I don't have to. Any ideas?

I had an issue like that when I did a large overclock. My problem was my ram was a bit too high so I had to turn down the multiplier for it. Maybe a simular issue?

My RAM too high? Interesting...
I didn't even overclock my ram. But turning down the cpu multiplier helped?

Its worth a try. I couldn't maintain any kind of stability with my Ram running anything above default speed.

I changed the multiplier to x6 and everything is perfectly stable now.

You can try tighten up the timings to compensate

unless your overclock has been done just using a multiplier, you will also over clock your ram. for me it ended up overclocking my ram to a point where it wasnt stable, so i merely lowered the multiplier for it (not the cpu multiplier)

I found out I had some registry errors, fixed them and it has worked fine since then but haven't played CoD much. I'll have to test it again soon. If it happens again, I'll turn the multiplier down.
