Windows 7: Intel burn test is the only thing crashing my PC

I updated my SSD's firmware, it was way out of date. Restored my motherboards defaults, set the SATA controller back to AHCI. Set my RAM back to 9-9-9-24 @ 1600mhz. I loaded the motherboard's optimized 4.2ghz setting. The SSD's always been on P0 and my 3TB drive with all my games installed in on P1. The rest of my ports are SATA2. Here's a screenshot (under full load) from HWMonitor with my temps and voltages, and one from the ASRock tuner to show what the voltages are set to in BIOS.

Edit: Just ran linpack for 20 minutes and got a BSOD. Reset CPU to stock 3.3 with 3.6ghz turbo boost, running linpack again. Crashed again in about 15 minutes @ stock. New screenshots of voltages added.

1. In the instructions I gave, there is no where in there about your board's 4.2 settings.

2. You are never going to have a stable overclock unless you can run stock stable.

3. You never use your board's auto overclocking to overclock. Period! If you want to overclock, start studying and learn how to do it through bios, manually. Have some idea of what every setting means before you change it.

4. Go back and read #2.

I set my RAM to 1333, processor to 3.3ghz everything totally stock and watched HWMonitor while running linpack. Everything stayed around the same, 80w on the CPU under full load, got through 10 instances of linpack. I used the ASRock tuner to push the multiplier to 42 and ran linpack again 8 more times, 90w under load on the CPU, stock voltage of 1.285. I rebooted to set the 42 multiplier in bios and restarted. Ran linpack and noticed the processor was only getting 65w now. It hit 113w after a couple minutes and immediately froze. I rebooted, set everything back to stock 3.3ghz RAM at 1333 instead of 1600, trying to recreate the stability I had before. Crashed after a couple minutes.

[QUOTE=essenbe;2945094]2. You are never going to have a stable overclock unless you can run stock stable.


How can I figure out why I'm unstable at stock? I've never had this problem before, and don't want to start investing in a new motherboard/CPU/RAM to solve the problem.

Maybe putting 113W through a 95W CPU damaged it. What you should do is clear CMOS (How To Clear CMOS (Reset BIOS) [Easy, 10 to 15 Min]) When you boot back up, it should send you straight to bios. Clearing CMOS will make BIOS Forget every setting in there including date and time. The first thing you have to do is set optimized defaults (F5) set the date and time, memory timings, voltage and frequency, set the sata controller to what it is right now or you will not boot, set the boot order.

Now, on that particular board, in the overclocking section if you leave it set to auto, it will not set your multiplier right. Set the first section (options are Auto, XMP or Manual) set it to manual. Set your BCLK to 100 and the Multiplier to 37. Now, this part you will have to play with. Set the CPU voltage to manual and the Vcore to 1.250V. By setting it to manual, you will not drop the voltage down on idle, but it will not go above that number either. All you want to do is see what voltage is required to run at stock settings. If it will not boot into Windows, increase the vCore 0.005 (in other words set the Vcore to 1.255), save and exit. Keep doing that until it boots. It should boot at 1.250. Download and install Core Temp (Core Temp) and CPUz, which I assume you already have. Never use but 1 temp monitoring program at a time. Download Intel Burn Test. Set it on standard and the times to run 5. Open core temp, CPUz set to the CPU tab and IBT. Start IBT, after a couple of passes, take a screenshot of all 3 windows at the same time while it is running and post them here.

Reset CMOS, took out the older sticks of RAM, as I'm still not convinced they're problem free. Booted right up at 1.250v at 100.0 BCLK and stock multiplier of 33 (which I assume you meant instead of 37).

No, I meant 37. 37 is your stock boost clock. I also did not want HW Monitor I wanted CPUz (CPU-Z CPUID - System & hardware benchmark, monitoring, reporting). I also want your GPU card at stock.

Ok sorry. everything's been set to what you said. Power's more than 95w on the CPU.

Something is not right at all. Go into bios and look under, probably advanced, CPU settings and see what the 'C' states are. You should have C1e, C3 and C6 probably and maybe the C States package and set them all to enabled. And try it again.

Also, try setting your CPU Voltage to 1.210. If you BSOD, keep bumping it up 0.005 at a time.
