Greets everyone,

I am having trouble getting my 4.0 OC stabilized. I used the Guide to Overclocking 930 to 4.0 and used the quick and dirty vcore boosting method for 4.0.

Code:
Code:
Method #3: Quick and dirty vcore boosting.

Set your ioh and ich to 1.2, your vdimm to 1.65, your cpu pll to 1.88, and your qpi/uncore to 1.35. Set Bclk to 190/191 or 210/211 and multiplier to 21 and 19 respectively.

The d0 chip usually hits 4.0 in the vcore range of 1.175 and 1.25 try those voltages until you find whats right for your chip.
So I am running the following settings:

CPU Volts - 1.25
IOH - 1.2
ICH - 1.2
vdimm - 1.65
CPU PLL - 1.88
QPI/Uncore - 1.35
Bclk - 191
Multi - 21

Speedstep OFF, C1E Off, HyperThreading off

Everytime I run Prime 95, I get BSOD error code 124 within 1 minute. This has to do with QPI as far as I can tell, I tried upping it to 1.375 (max safe limit with Vdroop, apparently), I tried lowering to 1.325, 1.3 - all produced the same 124 code.

Looking for some help here! Not sure what to do to get this one stable.

You can't straight up copy/paste someone else's settings; every computer is different. There's also no guarantee your proc will even make it to 4.

124 more often than not means you need more Vcore.

Bump vcore a little, try 1.275 first and then 1.3 if that doesn't work. A lot of i7 chips need about 1.27 to get 4.0 unless you have a really good batch. 124 can be QPI but also can be vcore. If changing vcore doesn't help then try matching your vtt with your QPI if you have that option.

Going to try some Vcore boosting, thanks guys will be back with results.

Didn't realize that code could also be Vcore related.

Edit: Bumped Vcore to 1.275 with same settings listed above, been running prime for about 5 minutes now and I'm still up.

Sending out some +rep, think Vcore was the issue here.

Thanks all!
