Looking to follow the recommendations and have an alternate install of Windows to play with further OC'ing and optimizing my current OC so I don't corrupt my actual setup with serveral BSODs. I also tried doing a fresh load of Windows with my OC and noticed I was getting BSOD 0x124 with little or no load.
So looked like I'll go through the PLL/Vtt/C3, etc tweakin troubleshooting post a bit, but would like to do that and not bother my fresh install.
Any recommendations on how to best do that? I know I'd have to buy another Win7 license, but what "minimal" drivers should I install to ensure that I emulate the environment as much as possible? Would I have to install all the GPU drivers for example? Would it make a diffrence if I'm installing my OC load on a HDD instead of a SDD (like I have)? I understand some of the issues relate to Intel Rapid Storage, so if I'm trying to recreate the environment, assume I would have to have an SDD, so should I buy a 2.5" and load that in my X-dock instead?
Appreciate any advice,
