Here are my spec's

http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=1415488

It does not run hot idle from 35c to 38 c.

When playing metro 2033 47c

But when i run prime 95 it takes 30 seconds before BSOD!.

Am i not putting enough voltage somewhere? other then cpu all my voltages are stock.

Thx alot let me know!

Could be your ram, try running cpu only tests.

Edit: I would run OCCT cpu test only, it uses almost no ram and will tell you if you need more voltage or not.

My cpu on load goes to 1.53
I have pc 1333 ram running it at 1557mhz i think... But i have it on stock voltage of 1.50
North bridge is also stock voltage.

heat is no issue with me coolmaster hyper n Corsair ax1200w psu 4 120mm fans 1 140mm fan 8 80mm fans. 60% intake 40% outake. Gotta cool my Gtx 470s

dude honestly I just gave up with prime95 and my 1055T because every other bench and stress test doesn't make my processor get as friggin hot as prime95. Its stable to run it but its just not ideal to let my processor be working so hard and so hot when I just bought it. but yea I just booted at 4.2 and played a few songs in my daw and then after a bit it crashed and rebooted - didn't even show the bsod but it was a 1033 1e I'm pretty sure - you can always check the codes so if you're ever reporting a bsod you should put in the codes from the screen. they are super easy to find.

at least that way you know if its your memory or your cpu or what. bsods are often memory.

1.5 is not the stock voltage and should be high enough for 4.2

its probably your 1333 memory being run at 1600 - even if you rack up voltage and drop timings sometimes the sticks are not made to run at that speed and just crap out unless you drop the fsb a little bit.

good luck

Yea it is most likely the ram.
Most likely going to sell it and get better ram. This is Corsairs budget ddr3 ram.
Im going to try to bump the voltage to 1.60 on the ram but im going to wait and see that everybody agrees.

I bought ADATA 1600 (customer choice award on newegg)

it clocks up a little higher and the timings aren't jaw dropping but its still a 7.8 windows user experience rating and only costs maybe $90 for 2x2Gb.

its made to run at 1.65-1.75V I run it at 1.75

oya IDK if this RAM will get you to 4.2 tho haha.

Yea i just clocked it down to 4.1ghz but meh intel burn test says my mem or cpu has something set wrong.

I was very stable at 4ghz. Trying to pull out more power to run my 470s in SLI.

Cool, my DDR2 800 gives me a 7.8 Windows Index too.

You should work on bringing your ram down to at or below stock speeds.

You can over-volt ram, mine are running 2.2v 1.8v is factory. Try googling for others with your ram and what they over-volted to, they look like they were designed for iCore chips with 1.5v rating.

Edit: What is your HT-Link and NB frequency?

I got mine stable at 4.1ghz with that clock speeds but I can't get my NB OC stable.

for your 470 sli's. I suggest settle at 4ghz but OC your NB to 3ghz. 4ghz @3ghz is faster than [email protected] NB imo.

Ht is 2349mhz NB is set to auto.

lower down your HT to 2ghz. anything more than 2ghz actually lessens performance.. OC your NB now

Think i can handle the 4.1ghz. OCCT ran 6 min test and no crashes.

NB to 3ghz? What voltage would i use?

1.35-1.375v at your cpu/nb would be enough for 3ghz and safe at 24/7 overclocks. what cooler are you using with your cpu?

Cooler master Hyper N in and out air flow. With Artic 5 silver tp.

But i have massive airflow in my case.

oh. I hope your cooler is enough for that clock speeds. what are your idle/load temps?

btw have you fixed your temps? thuban temps are not accurate. you need to use offset on core temp and match it to the temps on your bios. mine was off about 6-7 degrees so I had the offset on coretemp
