Vcore is around 1.240, is that normal?

seems like my rig is fixed..! dont wanna open the champagne bottle yet, but it survived a 20 hours CPU +RAM Stresstest plus a weekend of normal usage.. what ive done the latest is:

-Vertex 3 Firmware update!
-LPM disabled

Vertex 3 - Windows install in AHCI mode on Intel 6 series Chipset platforms

no more freeze, no BSOD. i hope it says.. otherwise ill repost^^ thanks to all who contributed in this or other threads!

No problem.

Sorry, I should have actually mentioned the SSD firmware; I think I missed that you had an SSD. With SSDs, there are four important things to keep up to date:
  • SSD firmware
  • BIOS version
  • Chipset Drivers
  • Storage Controller drivers
