Hello everyone! I just recently got my first build together ever that I overclocked. Was soooo excited when all the stress tests passed. But after real world application, I occaisionally get Blue Screen memory dumps. I overclocked according to Linus' video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0CHs5_TdpXE because I am using the same line of board and haswell processor. In doing the stress tests, when I finally got my "stable" overclock i tested it with Aida64 for 14 hours. CPU never reached above 72 C even at 1.26 volts on air cooler (Dark Knight is beast). Since that ran fine I assumed I was ok. Then i started getting the BSoD's randomly. Really random! And I noticed that 95% of the time it was during League of Legends gameplay. It hasn't done it once during Assassin's Creed 4, but it also did it I know when trying to install graphics driver. So i researched and found out that it could be the bios needs updating. BIOS running current version. Then I read on here that there could be somthing wrong with memory. So I ran windows 7 Extended MEMTEST 6 passes and it checked out fine. Also tried setting the OC from manual to X.M.P. but couldnt do that because it was jacking my Vcore voltage over 1.3 volts... HIGH! Does anyone have any suggestions as to what could be doing? Do i need to set the memory timings manually without using X.M.P. profile? I appreciate any help that I can get. Here is my computer.

Overclock mode set to manual. Voltage set to adaptive with max being 1.26. DRAM target speed set to 1600. Pretty sure everything else is set to auto!

I don't know if Aida64 actually stresses the entire CPU. I think it's primarily a memory bench.

I'd suggest giving OCCT a try and see if you get different stability results.
