HELP: Overclocking BSOD

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I wanted to clock my i7 to 3.8 or 4GHz.

I just wanted to quickly get up there without all the testing so I followed the guide and used these settings:

core speed = 181x21 = 3801
VCore : 1.35v
QPI/Uncore : 1.35v

ram timings (9-9-9-24) @ 1.65v
ioh : 1.2v
cpu pll: 1.88v

and I keep BSOD with IRQ_NOT_EQUAL with error code 0x000000A, I think this kind of voltage is pretty high and should be sufficient for most 920s?

When I set the voltage lower to like ~1.25v, I get the two letter vcore+ error messages. But when I go past 1.3+ I get the IRQL BSOD. Could it be possible that my memory is crashing my overclock?

EDIT: just ran 171x21 = 3600 with the same 1.35v/1.35v and it crashed again. :[

Okay, the first thing I'd like to say is: it's NEVER a good idea to do quick-and-dirty overclocking. That's how you brick hardware. Just. Plain. Don't.

Secondly, you've got a lot of unusual things modified. The IOH and PLL voltages don't need to be messed with. My dad has your board, and I have its suped-up brother, and we both have the D0's. Keep IOH at 1.1v and PLL at 1.8v.

Thirdly, far too high voltages. Your D0 should be around 1.2v at 3.8GHz. The QPI is a little finnicky, but should hover in the 1.20-1.21ish range.

Fourth, the 21x multiplier might be making it unhappy. Try it with 20x, mine loves that setting.

But, altogether: you're trying to tune a carburetor in one step. That's dangerous and imo irresponsible. Take the time to treat your hardware properly. Go to the OCN Guide and really learn about the art that is overclocking.

There are simply too many variables for you to adequately diagnose with how you're approaching it. This guide will help educate you in the field and hopefully prevent you from burning up any hardware. Good luck

I dont mean to be rude but, Im actually just following the guide Method #3. Thats why I have those things modified. I know I should attempt more things but I was actually trying to get it stable and slowly lower voltages?

However, I've give those values a try and let you know.

On a quick note though, I modified my RAM to 10-10-10-24 instead of 9-9-9-24 at 1.65v with everything else the same and my computer has been up for 30 hours folding. :\\

Coincidence?
