crashes at idle feel like bios, or overclocking not so much video.

Does it BSOD in safe mode, when the video driver isn't loaded?

I didn't try in safe mode.
The only day it didn't crash was yesterday, when i had removed the ati driver for my graphic card.

The thing is it can work for hours without crashing, doing a lot of heavy stuff, encoding, etc..

Might be the bios too.. i have the latest, but it's a beta.

As long as it's not a real defective piece of hardware.

Actually the QPI PLL Vcore is completely different from CPU VTT which typically runs in the +150 to +250 range when overclocking. I'm not sure how you could have misunderstood me?

The Prime error 124 is famous among i7 overclockers, it's a well known fact that raising CPU PLL voltage or CPU Vcore is the standard fix for that particular error.

This taken directly from EVGA overclocking guide for the i7 >Increase VCORE or CPU VTT if you see this BSOD "124" (you must test by bumping each voltage watching for a change to see which one is needing an increase).

This guide will make the overclocking process much easier for you to understand.

Thanks for the info Chev!
I'm reading the link you posted right now.

But i've juste included a link with a pictures from my voltages.
Also, my CPU is an i7, but for socket 1156 so i don't know if it makes a difference from 1366

thanks,

Stop overclocking, at least as a test.

There are 2.3E9 different reasons for a hardware machine check exception (MCE) to be passed along by Windows in the form of a 0x124 BSOD, and the first thing you'll want to do is check whether the same thing still happens when the hardware is not abused by overclocking.

Thats part of the problem right there. I don't trust any of those so called overclocking programs that work in Windows. You should only do your overclocking in bios.


That error message 124 is a very common error when overclocking the i7. This is a well known fact among i7 overclockers and is obviously a very unknown fact among IT's.

News flash, not all BSOD events can be explained with a debugging program. It's called overclocking for a reason and BSOD's are common due to system instablity from an unstable overclock. A bug report isn't about to solve a BSOD event from overclocking.

It's not an OP system deal and there is no cause other than an unstable overclock, or more specifically too low of either CPU Vcore or CPU VTT termination voltage, but that could be a bit different with the Gigabyte board. You can probably get more accurate info from the Gigabyte forum.

It would be a real shame to attempt to track down a problem that is so obviously related to overclocking. Especially when the OP has already told us this fact.

Hope the guide helps.
