A handful of users' have reported that even after priming 12hrs+ they have recieved random bsods, this does not really indicate that it's unstable.

The error codes are not 100% and are not ALWAYS correct, with that said, stress testing in your main OS is not a good idea. If possible get yourself a spare HDD and load up windows and run all your stress testing on that. The idea of having another HDD is so that when your running your stress testing, background processes are at a minimum and should help indicate the main source of bsods, disabling the internet connection is also a good idea, same with any type of antivirus. Just remember too many bsods in a OS can cause the OS to become unstable ie corrupted file systems etc. With that said, if you pass 12hrs once you should be able to pass again, however, this does not mean go OCD stress testing.

In a situation where you are getting random bsods try the following:
  • Try running C3 and C6 on AUTO with C1E and EIST Enabled.

  • Clear CMOS (quick way - take the baterry out), load saved stable overclock, fresh windows install with pretty much nothing installed, no internet connection, nothing just a prime blend run. With minimum processes running and windows services, it would ba clear indication of stability without other 'things' such as a driver error, windows update, internet connection causing bsod.

  • You could try the above or even a BIOS update, I stress that before you update, run stock setttings and then update the BIOS (**Don't update the BIOS on an overclock setting, you could risk bricking the mobo)

  • Try Enabling all power saving features - C1E, EIST C3 and C6.

  • Many have found that enabling SPREAD SPECTRUM reduces the voltage fluctuation. (Asus mobo's)

  • Try using Manual voltage instead of Offset.

  • Go to control Panel/hardware and sound/power options and select High performance Mode.

  • Take the RAM out of the equation, underclock it if you have to and see whether or not it continues.

  • Try a fresh OS install on a spare HDD or something, remember as explained before, too many bsods in the os = corrupt file system = unstable OS

  • IF you have an SSD Read THIS, it might help solve your problems.

  • Run Prime on it's own and leave it!!!!

  • Flash video bsod/freezing? Read THIS (Disable Hardware Acceleration)

Hopefully some of these TIPS could help you against the dreaded IDLE/RANDOM BSOD and get your CPU stable. I'll add some more TIPS along the way.

Munaim1 had a good post on how to fix random BSODs, I will try and find it.

Edit: ninja'd
Thanks for the posts. The thing is, I don't have any power saving things enabled right now. The proc runs at 4.4 all the time. So could it be something else? It would be so hard to fix because it happens like once every few weeks.

I dont have another OS, not tried reinstall will try that next.

hey munaim1, buddy, i am having a really weird problem. I am BSODing after 9+ hours in prime blend but I can run the custom 1344 and 1792 ffts for hours without BSODing. This has happened for 4.5 @ 1.304v, 4.6@1.336v & 4.7@1.368v. VCIO was 1.15v and pll was 1.7. reducing the pll voltage has not helped other than in shaving off a couple of degrees from my load temps. the load temps are ok too - 70 C (after hrs prime) on the hottest core for 4.5, 74C for 4.6 & 76C for 4.7. Any idea mate?

whats the bsod code devv? Double check your voltage settings against these - http://www.overclock.net/intel-cpus/...king-tips.html

The 1344 is the bain of my life, one min I pass it fine, next min it fails miserably. They are not reliable tests.

You are running the 4.5 with 1.3 vcore, sometimes that isn't enough. Also you need to stick to one clock get it stable and move on. Try 1.31 vcore with 4.5

i had stability problems at 45x @ 1.30, had to go step by step till 1.325 seemed to do the trick.

also @ 47x needed 1.395, but every chip is different!

hour's really?

care to post a screenshot of both running a couple hours? I find it hard to believe that you can pass the 2 hardest FFT's then fail at the 9hour mark. Sorry but I would love for you to prove me wrong, then I would almost stop recommending those fft's altogether.

I already know how unreliable they are but this would be even better. In your case, I would recommending concentrating on the prime blend more rather than those FFT's.

I have created a sheet for BIOS templates, it could be a reference point to other's including oneself and a quick 'copy and paste' whenever required in other threads/posts etc.

Those that have posted their stable systems please spare a few minutes of your time to do this. One more thing, these are the ones im after:
  • Main BIOS page (The advanced settings main page)

  • Full AI tweaker Page including DRAM Timing control

  • CPU Configuration Page

just installed my 2 HDDs and i got a 109 bsod :s what increments for increasing DRAM voltage? think +2 (1.51250) would suffice? i'm assuming not enough since it's set at 1600mhz

Same thing happens with me at 48x, that's why I haven't certified it. It goes to 9-10 hours and will fail. Sometimes sooner. I've put it all the way to my max of 1.448v and it failed. So here it stays with even lower voltage, hasn't ever crashed doing anything. At least it is 12hr+ prime stable at 47x...
