I had a GIGABYTE GA-Z68XP-UD3P LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard and I could overclock my cpu to 4.5 without any problems, but with this new motherboard which cost more btw... which doesn't have intergrated graphics... which means it's a performance mobo... doesn't let me OC my cpu and I get a blue screen of death which doesn't last long enough for me to even read the error code. I downloaded all of the drivers from the website and I still get that BSOD.
hi, you say your current mobo doesnt have integrated graphics but its a z68 chipset which does have igpu .anyway i have an i5 2500k with an asus p8z68-v mobo and basically has the same overclocking power as yours does and are some of the best mobos for sandybridge imho. im no expert in this field but have you checked to see if your bios needs updating as the gen3 boards are pretty new. just a thought.
ive just noticed that there are no bios updates as yet for your mobo so it could just be teething problems until a new bios update is released i would keep an eye on some forums to see if others are having the same problem !!!! hope this helps
You can look in the reliabilty monitor, find the event, view details, you'll find the stop code there. Kind of irrelevant when you incorrectly OCed (not a smart thing to do) but you can check anyways. OCing is simple on SB but not that simple. You are supposed to stability test, checking vcore and temps for at least 1 hour, how else would you know it's safe? Unless you like to throw away money.
I'll just give you the quick and newbie way to oc. First, get cpuz, hwmonitor, and prime95. Now in bios, keep your multi at 45, change the vcore to offset, set it to +.05. Now in windows, open all 3 programs, in prime run large fft. Tell me core temps and vcore. Temps need to stay below 72C and vcore should be around 1.3v (over 1.4v will cause more degradation than one would like). If not, you can stop prime and adjust the offset. You will need to run prime for at least 1 hour without errors or bsods.
^+1 overclocking requires you to adjust more then the multiplier, more then likely on your gigabyte board the vcore was set to auto and it cranked itself up as your increased your clock. I have a gigabyte board and my first increamental increases did similar, then i realised and changed the voltage manually. As you increase the clock you need to up the vcore to increase stability. Try reading the overclocking sticky in this forum and follow it as best you can.
The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck. The bugcheck was: 0x00000019 (0x0000000000000003, 0xfffffa8006f93340, 0xfffffa8006f93340, 0xfffffa8006f93340). A dump was saved in: C:\Windows\MEMORY.DMP. Report Id: 112211-36098-01.
Only button I see was the OK button after I clicked on the View technical details in the action column.
Found this error also...The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck. The bugcheck was: 0x00000124 (0x0000000000000000, 0xfffffa8009a93028, 0x00000000f2000000, 0x0000000000000014). A dump was saved in: C:\Windows\MEMORY.DMP. Report Id: 111811-24585-01.
The values in my uefi bios were all set to auto and only the multiplier was raised and then after I put those specific values to manual and changed them how you instructed me, I recieved the 0x00000019 error.
