I just overclock my cpu using xmp profile at 4.25ghz @ 1.240volts and ram running at 1666mhz. I ran AIDA64 and did stability testing. It's totally stable within 20+minutes but when it hits the 30 minute mark, it throws a blue screen saying whea error. The temperature doesn't go above 70*C. Any opinion on this matter? Here are my computer specs:

CPU Cooler: NZXT Kraken X60 98.3 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler (Purchased For $119.99)

What exactly error do you get? I would think that isn't enough voltage for get it stable but we need to know the exact error. Also, are you using multiplier or FSB for overclock the rig.

It's a blue screen with a SAD FACE and with a bunch of words saying it has an error. I'm totally new in overclocking. I just watched some videos regarding HASWELL overclocking and followed it but Idk what I am doing wrong. Tried to increase Voltage, it post but when I run stress test AIDA64 for like 5-15 minutes it shows the dreadful blue screen. The temperature is not even that High. 72*C on 100% load / 4.3ghz so I don't know the reason. :/

That's the worst way to do overclock.

If you don't know what you are doing, I suggest you read a little before start to overclock your rig because the settings and results that you get will never be the same that other person with the same components. Whe you get a BSoD (blue screen), you get an error code in the middle on the screen, that code is the way to know that is the exact problem for your overclock.

Don't use auto-OC utilities.

I overclock through the BIOS not using auto-OC utilities. Anyway, I did some more research and I overclocked my 4770K at 4.1ghz @ 1.23v it's pretty stable so far. Ran Intel Burn Test, 20 runs at Very High. I did that two times consecutively and no BSODs! After that, I ran AIDA64 for like 30+minutes and no BSODs! So I think it's all good now.

That's stable.

I run my stable test for 9+ hours, 20 or 30 minutes aren't enough time for know if your overclock is stable or not.
