I can't seem to get past 4.1 ghz without a bsod. I have upped the voltage a bit but that hasn't helped either.
Specs: Sniper G1 M5
I5 4670k
Crucial Ballistics 8gb
Thermaltake 650w psu
Corsair closed liquid cooling(small one)
Twin frozr3 7850 oc 2gb
Temps don't seem to be a problem. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You probably have a bad chip, that might be all you'll get out of it.

How high is your Vcore? May have to increase it some more, assuming that you have good cooling and good temps. Just don't go over 1.300 v. Vcore.

Some good Haswell OC info in this thread: http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/id-1722630/intel-god-...

Thanks for the help. I upped the voltage to 1.23 and it passed stress tests with intel xtu @ 4.4ghz so all is well

Sounds good, but IXTU isn't all that "stressful". Try Intel Burn Test at Very High or AIDA64.

yeah, I ran prime 95 torture test and after 4 passes with no errors i stopped it because core temps were at 67c and that just being 30 seconds or so would assume they would continue to rise. I think i need a larger cooling system than the corsair 55. I have heard the 110i is a decent system. Outside of that, I have been gaming and doing normal stuff without any crashes and no noticeable problems and core temps never above 55c, so I may just leave things as they are. Thanks again for your help, this is indeed a capable and friendly community...

That is true, especially with a closed loop liquid cooling system. However, as long as you stay below 90*C. for short periods of stress testing you're OK.

Corsair doesn't make an H110i. There is the H100i and then the H110 (without the "i"). http://www.corsair.com/en-us/cpu-coolers
Both are relatively expensive. I don't see the need to spend that much on a CPU cooler when the $72 Noctua NH D14 works almost as well and is much quieter under load. http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/nepton-280l-tundra-...

If your system performs well while gaming and doing "normal" applications, then that is what matters the most, to me at least.

You're quite welcome! Good luck with your new OC!
