ok, i am getting a new mobo shortly allong with a 3770k, so i dont think the mobo will be the issue anymore. it may be a couple months, im not sure if subscriptions to these forum posts last that long, but if i have the same problems with the new board and setup i will make sure to post here, and maybe we can trouble shoot something else. thanks for your help thus far. and like i said, i will post again in a month or two when i get my new board and cpu.

Holy crap, back that off. You shouldn't need anywhere near that much vcore to get to 4 GHz. I realize every chip is different but this is my x4 955 at 4.0,

Mine didn't even take 1.4V to get there, and tops out around 48-49C under load. As far as the ox124 BSOD, that isn't the vcore that needs to be increased but the CPU-NB (also known as the memory controller) voltage (and maybe one or two others if present) that needs to be bumped up a bit.

What motherboard do you have in there now seeing as you don't list it in your specs?

i dont understand what you mean, mine, stock, came at 1.4ghz, did yourz not come the same?

please note we are using different processors, yours is a 955, mine is a 965

its a "high performance pc" i bought from hp. HPE 300z, bought it years ago, as stated im doing even more upgrading than ive already done. upgrading to a sabertooth allong with a 3770k.


as for the north bridge, how much would you suggest i increase it? the NB Vid is at "1.100" think it should go up?

upped the northbridge VID to 1.125 and am running stability test, only a couple min in, seems stable, but i cannot seem to find a way to check NB temps, is there any way you might know of to do this?

multiplyer 19.5x (3.9ghz)
HT multiplyer 10x (2000mhz)
voltage 1.45v
NB Vid 1.115

i dont think ive ever had a stability test go so smooth EVER, and i know it was only 10 min, mostly because i want to wait till i can monitor my north bridge a little better. i fear my NB was getting a little hot, my computer was smelling like it does when an amd processor gets over 60c. on that note, the temps peaked at 49.1c

You have a CPU Integrated Memory Controller, so it's part of the CPU.

There should be a CPU NB voltage setting, this is the one you need to bump.
Try 1.20v, if still not stable then go to 1.25v.

With 10GB RAM, you will need the CPU NB voltage bump.


What CPU (Vcore) voltage are you using now?
Agree with Stormy 1.6+ is way too high, have never seen anyone go that high before.

Can you download CPUZ and post a snip of the CPU, Mainboard, Memory, and SPD tabs.

found speed fan, love it, think i will use this from now on for temp monitoring, it is very vague, but efficient. can now monitor my north bridge. people are saying to keep amd NBs under 80c if possible, but it is not unheard of for them to go higher i guess. tell me iff im wrong, education cant hurt.

i was looking at some people pulling stable 4.2 with 1.48v, thought it was high even myself. what do you suggest the voltage be, keeping in mind stock is 1.4, i last got stable with 1.45, if you think i could go lower i will try
