When I try anything higher, it BSODs on IBT. Temperatures are fine. 70 and under in IBT. Any ideas? i5 2500k + Hyper 212+ Push/Pull Asrock Z68 Extreme4 Gen3 1.3v (Coretemp registers as 1.35-1.37) PLL 1.9v More about : worst discordian December 28, 2012 9:44:27 PM Try lowering the PLL, that helped me immensely on mine.
