Help with overclocking old i7 930 D0


I've been trying to overclock my CPU for the last few days and I found a guide on this site:

I tried option 2 and 3 from this guide with no luck. Also tried another guide with the clock to 3.5GHz (no luck).

My hardware:
  • Case - Cooler Master HAF 932 Big Tower Svart
  • Motherboard- ASUS P6T SE, Socket-1366
  • Ram - 4x4GB Kingston KHX1600C9D3K2/8GX
    The ram I've just noticed is only showing 3x4GB after my rebuild so I will make sure they are properly installed. Can this have been the issue?

  • CPU - i7 930 processor 2.80 GHz D0 bought 2011 so it's one of the earlier D0s.
  • CPU cooler - Cooler Master Hyper 212 Black Edition with a added fan for push-pull situation.
  • Graphics card - RX 570. Overclocked to 1200Mhz but is not causing any issues alone.
  • PSU - Fractal Design Tesla 650W PSU
  • Lagring - One SSD on SATA 2 and 2 HDD 7200rpm.
  • Fans - Standard fans in the case

Temperatures using RealTemp while Prime95 has run is max 75 deg C with a 4.0GHz overclock.

The issue I am having is the computer shuts down without BSOD or anything while starting to play games. In Prime95 it shuts down with error code 001. I have tried upping the Vcore. Is my PSU able to handle all the added load? I did get a BSOD message "Kernel-Power, Event id: 41". This led me to believe the PSU is the problem. Maybe I should do a MEMTEST?

Also, the names on BIOS is different from the guide and tried to google everything so I think I got it right. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

BIOS Settings:
  • CPU Voltage = Vcore
  • CPU PLL Voltage = CPU PLL
  • QPI/DRAM Core Voltage = QPI/Uncore
  • IOH Voltage = IOH
  • ICH Voltage = ICH
  • DRAM BUS VOLTAGE = vdimm (mostly unsure about this one)

I have also tried a 3.2 overclock with no success, no good guide on this so I have tried AUTO option. (Maybe this is really stupid)

As you may can tell this is my first attempt on overclocking. Please any ideas what can be wrong?

Thanks in advance and just comment if I have missed anything.

I have now reset the motherboard and running sock speed CPU. Memtest showing no errors and my computer just goes black and turns on again. Occasional BSOD message with the line "Driver power state failure" shows up. Any ideas?

Event 41 is just a shut down that wasn't done properly (start -> power -> shutdown). if you yank the power cable or use the switch on your PSU you'll get an Event 41.

Driver Power State Failure errors are usually caused by a computer or device driver going into sleep mode while you're still using the device.

if Event Viewer shows anything other than Event 41 then go down that path to fix but if all you're seeing is Event 41 then you'll have to either go through your drivers one by one to figure out which is to blame or just clean install.

no sense in OCing if your OS install is wonky
