    Default P67A-UD4 Stability Problems

    Having BSOD 124 issues with my UD4 and 2600K. I'm using two sets (4x2GB) of this RAM: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231193

    To preface, I was using only 2x2GB of this RAM and had a successful 14+ hour run of P95 Small FFTs (screen shot attached) at 45x100 (4.5GHz). Using 1.35v (bios) with LLC enabled. Thought I was good to go. So I popped in the other 2x2GB kit and started Folding. Then these BSOD 124 errors started happening, usually after 8~12 hours. Tried removing the second set of dimms but still got 124 errors, same time window. Have tried extra QPI up to 1.2v (bios) and that didn't help either. Not sure if the extra QPI is good for the overall life of the CPU either as this will be a 24x7 fully loaded machine.

    Tried P95 Blend runs at 45x and they BSOD 124 almost immediately; so I backed down to 44x, here are my current settings. These are basically the same settings I used at 45x. Dimms are manually set 9-9-9-24 2T. This setup yielded a P95 Blend run of 6~7 hours before BSOD 124. So it's an improvement, but still not stable. Note that I've tried F6, F7b, F7f, & F7h. Currently on F6 because I don't believe I need the internal PLL overvoltage at the speeds I'm running and I'd like to be on an official bios if at all possible.

    I'm really at my wits end with this rig and am even considering the possibility that there is a defect with my board or cpu. Any wisdom you can share is much appreciated.

    Tried with 1.25-1.3v qpi voltage?

    You are using a DDR-1333 ram at DDR-1600? Surprising it works at all.
    From what I saw so far Sandy Bridge memory performance are very good even with DDR-1333.

    I screwed up on the link to the memory. It's now fixed. I'm using the 1600mhz variety. I noted that this memory isn't on the QVL for this board, I actually bought it for a X58 setup; but I haven't ever had much trouble in the past using dimms that weren't on the QVL list for my other Gigabyte boards.

    No, I haven't gone that high. Haven't seen much guidance from the community on what is acceptable for 24x7 use. From what I have seen, it appears 1.2v is the limit without putting the cpu at high risk of being degraded. Any truth to that?

    Let me caveat that... I know ANY overclocking is a risk, been doing this for years. Came to this forum because this seems to be where the most Gigabyte centric knowledge is.

    These CPU's don't need as much QPI/Vtt as the older ones, but like all other CPU's each is different. The one I have needs 1.2-1.24 for 2133Mhz, but 1866 or below is fine with Auto/1.05/1.08

    124 BSOD is often Vcore on P67, not always but often, and since you have Turbo enabled that may be what's going on. Your CPU may be using a much higher Multi than 45 on some cores at certain times, causing the vcore to not be enough.

    So I would test one or both of these things. Either more Vcore, or Disable turbo / set all cores to 45 max.

    It's a 4x2GB setup so maybe it does need more VTT.

    Ya, that very well could be a factor too, these CPU's are so new though it's hard to day.

    I was testing 8GB and didn't need anymore QPI/Vtt than I did with 4GB, but it all depends on the CPU.

    Fighting similar problem with my UD7 for the last couple of weeks. Even replaced the CPU and the problem is still there. I run 2600K rock stable 4.7GHz@1.296V under load, but it BSODs in idle or just browsing with codes 101,124,1E,3B - need more Vcore... Running Normal with -0.035 DVID now. Auto and fixed Vcore does not help.
    Upping Vcore, PLL, VTT does not help. Relaxing RAM settings does not help. Trying C3/C6 State Disabled now, but idle voltage and temps are up. Not the best solution I hope for if works at all.

    Seems like you need to add a touch more voltage in dvid,-0.0150 maybe? As if you knock too much off when it idles or light loading the CPU the idle voltage won't be enough to keep it stable

    I don't know what is going on... It's like x47 don't wanna play at all now. This morning couldn't stay in windows for more than 30 sec. No BSODs but freezing. Tried the RAM modules 1 by 1 and on Auto settings (1333), tried all kind of voltages, nothing helps, freezing in 30 sec.
    Now running x45 LLC Standard, everything on Auto and so far so good. If it survives for the next 24 hours with no lockups/BSODs I'll go back to x47 and see what it needs to run it.
