Hi guys

Ive question
I tried to OC my cpu, run prime for more than an hour and still getting bsod...
Computer either restart itself or even if its off turns back on...


Specs

I5 6600K
Asus Maximus HERO VIII
LP Corsair 2x8gb ddr4 3000MHz
H55i cooler
RX 480 8gb
PSU CX 750M


Steps I did

Turned xmp profile (which i think it might cause random bsod)

Increased clock to 45 on all cores
Increased cpu voltage to 1.32v
kept ddr4 to 3000mhz
disabled intel speedstep


Am I missing something?!

Hi,
As far as I've read it's best to work on cpu oc first
I assume that means memory at 2133 or default for the platform to rule out memory as the cause of numerous bsod like watchdog violation or timeout... which is what I've read lack of vcore.

Tried that too
Cleared cmos

I noticed something wierd about 2-3 days ago...

Turned on pc and on opening folders, im getting buzzing sound, something that never happened before...
After that i uninstalled program for sound but realtek was still on.... So i uninstalled realtek too, restart... Did last bio. Restart and so far i didnt experience any bsod, which doesnt mean that wont happen again..

Didnt have problem before, although, there was asus rog software that came down with update...
Ive delete that too so im left with windows sound...

Also, i pulled out all components, beside psu, to test things...
Cleared cmos, revert to different bios, changed slots of ram, disconected all hdds...
Didnt see any reboot so far...
But have to keep an eye on it...
The only thing thats left is psu to be tested...

Also, i took h55 and put stock cooler as i have some suspicion that might be dead soon(sound weird)

Ill try to ignore this...
I'm sorry but my question is legit. I'm just trying to understand someone else pov. Using current generation component, the choice is the following.

Today on Newegg:
Asus Maximus Hero X with 8600K: 492$
Asus Prime Z370-A with 8700k: 499$

I'm sure the pricing was quite close 2 years ago for z170 and 6600k.
I'm trying to understand why anyone would choose i5 with high-end mobo vs i7 mid-range mobo. I'm also right when I say (no judgment) that everything in your build is low-range compared to your motherboard.

I was hoping for help, not expla ining that my cpu or ram was on budget... ( No offense)
I bought it cause that was my budget and im happy with it...
If I get chance to change for I7, I will
