Jealous of your temps
With an H70 @ 4.5ghz I get 70c on load.

**This thread is not for discussing safe voltages for sandybridge, we have had enough of thoseNeed help getting your rig stable??? All you have to do is ask!
I take NO responsiblity for the headache / stress / anxiety / emotional discomfort etc lol that this may cause when trying to overclock and stabalize your cpu, this is a lenthy process which requires a lot of patience. If your not upto the task, then this thread may not be for you.
This is not an EASY club to join!!!
On that note, any damage, degradetion that you may encounter through stress testing or SUICIDE RUNS is your responsiblity and your responsiblity alone.
So you have been WARNED, other than that enjoy your 100% stable system and also have fun getting it there!!!
If you find there is a mistake or anthing that needs to be changed then either PM me. Also suggestions on how to make this thread better will be greatly appreciated.
Finally PLEASE provide a screenshot that we can actually see!!! USE OCN'S ATTACHMENT TOOL!!!!!!Rules
One last thing, PLEASE read the small print between each RULE
1. 12 HOURS+* STANDARD BLEND or CUSTOM BLEND with UPTO 80/90% of YOUR AVAILABLE RAM* used with Prime95 v27.7
***Check with task manager/performance tab/physical memory for how much AVAILABLE RAM you have, to do Custom BLEND, JUST change the amount of RAM from 1600 to 90% of your available***
***Prime FFT Length Info: Shad0wfax kindly pointed out the importance of running longer than 12hours HERE***
***All workers must be visible (hit the windows tab between options and help in prime and select tile)***
2. MUST have a screenie WHILE UNDER LOAD with your OCN name (notepad etc), CPU-Z 1.57.1+ and REALTEMP 3.67+*!!
***REALTEMP must show the duration of how long it's running, minimum of 12hours same as Prime95 like THIS!!!***
***Z68 GIGABYTE MUST SHOW EASYTUNE6 (last tab - hwMonitor)***
***EVGA USER'S MUST USE THE EVGA E-LEET UTILITY FOR VCORE READINGS***
3. LIST YOUR COOLING (notepad etc) and provide screenie of RAM, VOLTAGE, MOBO INFO via cpu-z and TASK MANAGER*
***TASK MANAGER only if your running custom blend, make sure you show Prime95 process.***
4. Must have a mild overclock 4ghz+
All submissions must follow a similar template like this!!!!
(This is mine before a few rules got amended)
IF YOU ANY PROBLEMS WITH THESE RULES PM ME OR POST IT HERE
Stability is hugely subjective, for example leaving a 20/30 tabs open and playing bfbc2 with fraps will surely drain the available RAM, that for someone could be everday usage.
Taking that into account I find that being able to stay stable for scenerio's like that, decreases your chances of getting any kind of bsod, therefore 'MORE' stability, which might be overkill to some but desirable for plenty of people.
On that note, those that have passed the blend run at 1600mb are stable for how they run their rig, for example, gaming 24/7 bfbc2 with no problems, however, it 'may' not be stable for high ram usage scenerio's which could be unlikely for some as they won't be running fraps and have 20/30 tabs open in the background because that's not how they run their rig.
Once you have done a 12hour+ blend whether it be custom or standard blend, I'm pretty sure there won't be a need to run it again and you might not get a bsod that relates to unstability of your overclock but then again you might because as you know overclocking and stress testing is not a guarantee.
There will ALWAYS be different opinons about this whole stability issue.
This is JUST the stable club, whether you go for, a standard blend or a custom blend you should be stable for what you use it for, stability is stability for your own use. If standard doesn't work for you, then go ahead and do a custom blend, that's the way I see it.
This is the stable thread, that's means general stability and extreme stability, both are included, however those with 8gb+ should really want to be using custom blend rather than normal blend (1600mb) which not only stresses the RAM and CPU but also the IMC of the chip which is important for stability.
BUT ITS TOTALLY UPTO YOU!!! - I personally recommend custom blend with upto 90% of your available RAM!!!

Just thought I'd let you guys know, I have been testing the PLL voltage further and found something quite amazing. With my current stable settings including the PLL voltage around 1.7v was stable as you can see from my submission to the club. For the last 10days or so I tried messing around with the PLL, I dropped it down to 1.4v and started going up, I kept on receiving the Error 124 and no boot up until I reached 1.55v and it passed both the 1344 and 1792 test along with a few hours of prime blend. My sweet spot is at 1.55v.
These are my settings as far as I remember.
VCCSA Voltage: Auto it's advised not to touch that one
VCCIO Voltage: 1.125v
CPU PLL Voltage: 1.7v
Auto PLL Overvoltage: Enabled
PCH Voltage: Auto
VRM Frequency: 350
Duty Control: Extreme
Phase Control: Extreme
CPU Current Capability: 140%
CPU Multi 51 by each core
CPU BCLK: 100 sb doesn't like changes in bclk
CPU voltage: 1.485v Manual bios - Idles 1.485/1.490 - Loads 1.472-1.480v
DDR Voltage: 1.6v
DDR Speed: 1866mhz
DDR Timings: 8-9-8-24 1T
Spread Spectrum: Enabled
LLC: Ultra High
Intel Speedstep: Enabled
EVERYTHING ELSE IS ON DEFAULT
These worked for me to get my cpu stable at 5.1ghz, but please this does not mean it will work for you.
If you have a similar setup then using these settings could help you stabilize your overclock but will require you to tweak them accordingly
HERE are my new settings, these work exactly the same as the above, only difference is that I'm using OFFSET voltage. Notice PLL voltage is changed and VCCIO due to recent findings, you can find that info above in the IMPORATANT FINDINGS & TIPS section.
Read 'my quest for 5.1ghz stability' on how I eventually got the above settings to work for me, went through as a noob so should be helpful to all the newcomers.

I think this may be helpful for some of you,found this on XS
The OverClockers BSOD code list
BSOD codes for overclocking
0x101 = increase vcore
0x124 = increase/decrease vcore or QPI/VTT...have to test to see which one it is
0x0A = unstable RAM/IMC, increase QPI first, if that doesn't work increase vcore
0x1E = increase vcore
0x3B = increase vcore
0x3D = increase vcore
0xD1 = QPI/VTT, increase/decrease as necessary, can also be unstable Ram, raise Ram voltage
0x9C = QPI/VTT most likely, but increasing vcore has helped in some instances
0x50 = RAM timings/Frequency or uncore multi unstable, increase RAM voltage or adjust QPI/VTT, or lower uncore if you're higher than 2x
0x109 = Not enough or too Much memory voltage
0x116 = Low IOH (NB) voltage, GPU issue (most common when running multi-GPU/overclocking GPU)
0x7E = Corrupted OS file, possibly from overclocking. Run sfc /scannow and chkdsk /r
and for all of you with GB mobos you should read this;
