Hello, I have a Intel 3570K with a CoolerMaster V8 and a ASRock Extreme4 Z77 LGA 1155 and I selected the 4.4 turbo preset overclocking option in the UEFI. It idles at 29 celcius in the UEFI, but after 5 minutes in windows, it hangs and I get a BSOD that says clock_watchdog_timeout. Is this a problem? I've seen other threads where a 4.4 Ghz preset OC is not a problem. The system runs completely fine without the OC.

a bit of internet research told me that this may be a software and a hardware issue at the same time. apparently you must update windows as there is probably a hotfix for this. you can also try flashing your BIOS to the latest update and check if that resolves your issue.
