    Had some news from gigabyte support ....concerning x79 ...new cpu series ie, 4820k etc ...and cpu frequency not being correct in windows 8.1 system properties, the engineers currently think its an issue between the cpu and the OS ...other brands of motherboards have been tested with the same outcome ....wrong cpu frequency when overclocking ....I don't know about default has ive not had my cpu at default since purchase ...anyway there you go ...it seems its windows 8.1 so far.
    A WHOLE LOT OF NOTHING WORKS PROPERLY

    To boost this theory,
    running on Win 7 my setting is rock stable,change to Win 8.1...very often I get BSOD.

    Completely Offtopic:
    honestly speaking MS Win 8.1 is total crap.. I was laughting myself out of the doorway to work when I first did see someone posting on web that "AMD cards performs better in Windows 8.1". I mean seriously considerin' Windows Vista for starters we used around 6-8 hours of work to strip Windows to it's knees, we came to Windows 7 we only had about 4 hours work to get rid of Microsoft idioticy and now we are looking at Windows 8/8.1 first of they added at leats 5-6 new idiotic applications like Windows Store, all sort of online M$ storage spaces and absolutely idiotic lock to START not to mention that when you finally get to desktop and finally actually recognize that it actually is not XBOX or your nokia phone you are running start ripping registry, gpeditors and not to even mention MS lovely new way of using Task Scheduler as primary launch for any Information delivery for Microsoft that returns us quite damn fast back to 6-8 hours work before you even consider connecting an Computer with Windows Operating System to Network and start considering what drivers you need, force driver signing thru the system or in worst case installing with EFI you realize that holy crap you have to reinstall it all just to not to ever see UEFI again.

    I can only assume because of so low response from people most of windows installing people die before they get all the above done because of low response on Network to MS to get rid of their crap. Specially the really bad shape nerd's moving to Linux.

    ;P

    Back to topic:
    Now as for BSOD's of this system:
    1. Might wanna start troubleshoot issue with 1333Mhz high latency memory settings. If you can losen up system setup at BIOS, so much you can be 100% sure that hardware itself ain't failing it's good start.
    2. Would start looking from CPU features more specifically Virtualization Features of Windows 8.1 (this is near only feature added in Win8.1 against Win7). They are forced backbone at the system no matter do you choose Hyper-V or now. Noticed 9/10 BSOD's I had is because idiotic background working Hyper-V. Also, you wanna test does the CxE functionality actually work correctly (first of does the hardware keep up to it when Windows uses them).
    3. To identify a singular device being an issue query them 1-by-1 software like HWINFO, AIDA64 like example USB issue above mentioned could be tested by query port then adding device to port and query hardware information with either of tools mentioned, if that causes BSOD well could use newer older module.
    4. If all else fails there's always hammer, DBAN and Arch Linux. :)

    Wrote above simply because what you are desc'ing there doesn't sound like USB issue.

    Wow, fast :) Thank You. I have Corsair Vengeance LP (CML8GX3M2A1600C9W ​XMP1.35V), should be working 1600 1.5V ,but after loading Win8.1 system is unstable. MemTest with no errors. I will try F6 BIOS now.

    Try the program "Thaiphoon Burner". It has a demo version. It can show the complete XMP timings and does this in number of clock ticks instead of nanoseconds like other programs, so exactly what you need for manually setting secondary timings in the BIOS (and there are no tertiary timings in the XMP profile).

    Here's an example from my PC: http://i.imgur.com/sADG0CH.png

    I noticed this right away when I got my GA-Z77X-UD5H board in regards to overclocking on Windows 8/8.1, at first it would display properly then disappeared after I finished tweaking my OC, I discovered the BIOS option responsible for this.Attachment 6567

    The CPU EIST function being disabled makes the system properties not display the correct CPU frequency however, upon using this to get the correct information displayed it then offsets the CPU clock rate inside the Task Manager's CPU area thinking its running 900MHz faster and fluctuates higher (perhaps the bug is it thinks the OC is the base and the increase is it thinking the turbo boost would make it go that high? even though its not)
