Hi im new here and to over clocking ,I dont know much about it .

Any way i custom built my pc and my mobo has oc genie 2 and every time i turn oc genie on after a couple of minuets i get the blue screen error 0x00000124 some thing like that ..

Heres what i have in my pc .

1 x Intel Core i5-2500K 3.30GHz (Sandybridge) Socket LGA1155 Processor

Sapphire ATI Radeon HD 5850 Extreme 1024MB GDDR5 PCI-Express Graphics

MSI P67A-C45 Intel P67 (Socket 1155) DDR3 Motherboard - (Sandybridge)

XFX Pro 550W Core Edition Power Supply

1 x Samsung SpinPoint F3 1TB SATA-II 32MB Cache - OEM (HD103SJ)

Corsair XMS3 4GB (2x2GB) DDR3 PC3-12800C9 1600MHz Dual Channel Kit

Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro Rev 2 CPU Cooler

1 x Samsung SH-S223C/BEBE 22x DVD±RW SATA ReWriter

Any ideas what im doing wrong with the oc genie and as to why it errors on me

A PSU guru might be able to correct me on this, but a 550 PSU is pushing it a bit with an overclocked quad.
What do you know that ASUS don't

Can you build motherboards too, by any chance
It "overclocked" mine to 4470 with a bclk of 103. I chuckled.

as for oc i dont know where to start. to be honest ive never done it before .
It might not be a power issue at all, if it works at stock but not overclocked then it's probably not a power issue unless that extra 10w is pushing it over.

You might want to explore the bios first, just raise the turbo multi to something like 37 and leave all the other options alone. Boot back into windows and check if it's stable with something like prime 95 of the intel burn test.

If it is stable then raise the multiplier a little more and test again, repeat until it isn't stable. Then go back to the bios and increase your core voltage by a few notches to say... 1.25v.

Edit: This is worth a read as well link but remember that all CPUs aren't the same.
