I havnt really gone in depth for overclocking yet, I just up the CPU voltage til it was stable. I have some OCN stuff bookmarked, so I prolly will later.
How long did you run IBT for?

IBT is a good start but it will generally generate heat and stress that factor.

2thAche has good advice here. OCCT will find errors if they are lurking and Prime will check out your RAM / NB volts to see if they are good.

I acknowledge that stress testing is somewhat odious and not as fun as game playing but its worth it in the end.

I'm having a sort of similar issue. My PC will occasionally just freeze up, even when I give my vcore a wide berth (Offset set to Auto), it will hover around 1.34-1.35 most of the time (super high for a 4.5GHz), then spike up to 1.41 occasionally, but it just keeps trucking.

Then occasionally I'll freeze. No blue screen, just a freeze, after hours of running blend. I also ran LinX at max memory for 2-3 hours and nothing. I'll also get temporary freezing (for a minute or so) on bootup when trying to get into my folder where my OC tools are.

Is this possibly a case of repeated blue screens and crashes screwing with my OS?

Same advice Faulty.

You cant just plug numbers into the bios and expect a stable OC.

Start at a stock or a modest OC - ensure its stable and then move the FSB / multi up with small adjustments to the Vcore.

Testing must be carried out at each step to make sure you are not heaping up errors on errors.

Once you hit the > 4Ghz clocks, fine tuning needs to happen with NB / Ram volts, along with related bios setting.

Yes, its a long process and its somewhat boring but it will save time and damage in the long run.

Pluhhm,
Are you fully stable at stock speeds now?
