hey guys
my goal is always to reach to 5.0ghz and i am always failing...i am getting 0x0000124 bsod error after 2 hours of prime test here are my current settings of my bios:

Can anyone help me with which things i gotta change?

When voltage mode is set to manual mode you need to have the C3/C6 states set to enabled. & When the voltage is set to offset mode, then they need to be set to disabled. If the C3/C6 states are not properly set then you may get a 124 BSOD error.

It could also be caused due to not enough voltage or too much/low PLL voltage. I would properly set your C3/C6 states and manually set your PLL voltage to like 1.6 or 1.7v

Set your Load Line Calibration to "Ultra High".

Set Phase Control to "Extreme"

Set the Switching Frequency to "Extreme" (I think that is the other extreme setting?) see below.

There should be a CPU vcore current capability that you can increase from 100% to 140%. Change that. Maybe that is what switching frequency is? ^

you can see this video shows how the bios looks like so you may know better which options i got.
Ok 1.8v PLL is often too much, this is why I said try 1.6v or 1.7v. I run mine at 1.45v and it is completely stable just to give you an idea of how low you can actually put this. Ok, put your Over Current Protection option to 140% and if you change switching capability to manual what can you change?

You could also try 50-100 runs of LinX or Intel Burn Test, though Prime95 does push SB more.

As for being stable, everyone has their own definition of it. Some consider 1-4 hours stable, while some consider 12-24 hours stable. For me, as long as games don't crash, it is stable enough. Something I learned was just because overclocks can pass benchmarks/stress testing, it doesn't always pass hours of gaming and vice versa. You'll have to find stability in whatever you do more.

ibt/linx doesnt stress what needs stressed in sandy bridge. its been debated/argued countless times for months.
i bet you cant run prime95 for 12 hours on that linx stable oc and THATS why you think its a waste of time.

but everyone has their idea of stable and testing. its your system. its your data. happy computing !!
