4770K Memory.DMP Error Help

I decided I would try to overclock last night. My motherboard is a MSI MPower Z87, so it has the OC Genie button on it. I pressed it, booted up, and bam, insta-4ghz. I ran Prime95 just to make sure it was stable, and after around 3 minutes of running it I got a message saying something to the effect of Windows ran into an error and needs to restart. After I restarted it asked if i wanted to send a error report to Microsoft. The errors that would be sent all had something to do with "memory.DMP" I turned off OC Genie and I'm now running at stock and after 15 minutes of Prime95 it doesn't have that error and restart. What should I do to get a successful overclock? Thanks in advance.

  1. It sounds like your CPU was unable to handle the overclock that Genie determined. The system did exactly what it was designed to do after an unsuccessful OC. These overclocking utilities are designed to pick settings that work on most boards but, it would seem, your luck in the silicon lottery was not that good and your system failed. You could probably use the same settings with a bit more vcore voltage and get a stable OC.

    One thing you should be aware of us most MoBo manufacturers are advising against P95 and instead suggest using AIDA64 for modern CPUS (Ivy Bridge / Haswell)

    Do you think Prime95 was making the oc fail? I'm downloading AIDA64 right now, thanks for telling me about it. Would it hurt my CPU if I tried the OC again and ran AIDA64 instead of Prime?

    Again, the video explains the reasonings and focuses primarily on what P95 doesn't test rather than what it does. As long as you keep voltages reasonable and monitor temps throughout, you should be OK
