    Default Help Please i'm trying to keep Asrock z68 Ext3 Gen3 stable with IGPU in i5 2500k

    Hello everyone,

    I keep getting a bsod (0x00000124) on my z68 ext3 gen3 since I bought it, about 1 month ago. I've read similar post/replies about setting the proper voltage to VTT but I also noticed that every post I read the person wasn't using the onboard GPU. I on the other hand am trying to use the onboard gpu but with very little success. Should I offset the igpu and if so by how much, what is a safe voltage? I am trying to keep the stock 3.3ghz so basically everything was set to auto, after reading some of the posts I bumped up the vtt and the cpu but still no luck. At first I thought the problem was with the drivers for the igpu but now I'm pretty sure that I have the wrong settings for my voltage. Can anybody steer me in the right direction, please. Also, i get the bsod every time i try to apply a screen saver or a theme, sometimes just by browsing my folders, other times the pc just doesn't even finish booting up.

    BCLK = 100mhz
    ratio = x33
    GT Frequency = 1100mhz

    cpu voltage = fixed @ 1.200v (is this to high? this is the current setting i've tried lots of them)
    cpu load line calibration = level 5 (can you explain what this does)
    dram voltage = 1.582v
    PCH voltage = 1.059v
    VTT voltage = 1.150v
    CPU PLL voltage = 1.791v (what is this setting for?)
    VCCSA voltage = 0.925v (also, what is this setting for?)
    IGPU voltage = auto
    IGPU load line calibration = level 5

    DRAM frequency is manually set to DDR3-1333 (originally set to auto)

    I'm curious should I use offset or fixed mode for the cpu and igpu?

    Is my PSU too weak?

    Everything but the primary graphics adapter (onboard on mine) is set to the defaults in north bridge configs.
    I've read in some posts that c3 and c6 should be disabled (is this true?) but again my "CPU Configuration" is all defaults.

    I'm currently running Windows 7 x64, if you need more info please let me know. I really want to get this system as stable as possible with stock multiplier.

    I ran memtest for 20hrs straight, all tests passed.

    124 error is not enough or too much vtt voltage,use upto but no more than 1.2v

    stock vtt should be 1.05v,
