    BSOD Help

    Well I found my VCORE was pretty low around 0.985-1.008V and I know low voltage on CPUs can cause these issues I've been having. I manually changed the VCORE to 1.15V and for the heck of it, I overclocked the CPU to 4.2ghz and did a 1 hour stress test using Real Bench and it passed successfully. Average CPU temp was 58c with core 1 reaching 64c as the highest. Fingers crossed this was the culprit...
  2. A friend of mine told me I should just go Skylake instead of Haswell/Canyon. I got these parts in mind which he also recommended. Its only about $100 more than the other parts and its way newer.

    When I bought the 3570K it was pretty expensive. $374 total for the 4690k and MSI Z97. Not too bad honestly. I already have everything else. I was looking at a non K and they prices are not that much cheaper and it would at least give me the option to overclock if I need to.
  4. My 16gb from G.Skill is CL9. So I'm good there I think. I know Devil Canyon's CPUS are a refresh of the Haswell for the new Z97 boards at the time so more or less they are like pre overclocked versions of older CPUs right? But I know that 4690K is VERY good in performance and reliability as the 3570K...well unfortunately..not in my case but they are good overall processors. Will there be a noticable performance increase coming from my ASUS P8Z77-V LK + 3570K to the MSI Z97 and 4690K? If my current CPU is failing...then it may not be performing as great as it once was. But I d
  5. If you seen my latest posts about the BSOD I've been getting lately, @Tripredacus says the fatal hardware error is related to my CPU. If its on the verge of complete failure then maybe its time to build a new system. But I don't see the point in replacing everything I have. I'm thinking all I really need to do is replace the motherboard (to be safe) and get a new CPU. I have good quality 16gb ram G.Skill, though its DDR3 which I think is fine as a lot of mobos still support DDR3 and haven't fully moved over to DDR4 yet. The other new dumps were related to my video card but he said

    Well it ended up freezing again. I guess I'll be building a new system or do you think getting a new CPU would be a better option?

    So far, no crash yet even with lot of CPU intensive work. But this doesn't mean anything as sometimes it can go days and weeks without crashing. So I'll see in a couple weeks. But I probably just jinxed myself.

    Bummer, looks like I'm going to have to build a new system or replace the CPU at the very least. I'm not sure. I did however have my RAM slightly overclocked..I completely forgot I did that so I went into the BIOS and removed that and changed it to auto..not sure if that could cause any issues with the CPU. I also notice the voltage seemed a little strange to me and I must have forgot to change the voltage back to stock or something when I did do overclocking at one point. But I set that back to auto as well and it hasn't crashed yet today. Been processing a TON of HD video today and no

    Hey Ya'll, I know it's been awhile since I've posted on this forum but I am in need of your expertise to help me figure out my computer's issues before I go waste money and build a whole new system. First and foremost, my PC specs. Intel Core i5-3570K G. Skill Ripjaws 16GB DDR3 2133 ASUS P8Z77-V LK 128GB Samsung 840 Pro SSD Nvidia GeForce GTX 750 Ti Windows 10 Pro 64-bit I don't have anything overclocked. BIOS is updated to the most reason update. I've normally been getting these BSOD with Minidumps once a month, now its happening 2-3
  10. I think my best bet is to just leave it stock. I don't think going from 3.4ghz to 3.8ghz is going to make that big of a difference in day to day tasks.
  11. I have a Ivy i5 3570k which I guess is a pretty good CPU for overclocking. I have the Turbo boost thing set at 4ghz, but I don't know if it even does anything. I find it all very confusing. Is it better to overclock the cpu and disable turbo boost? Which would be faster? permanently overclocked at 3.8ghz/4ghz or stock 3.4ghz with boost at 4ghz? I have a Asus P8Z77-V LK motherboard, XMP supported memory and a Corsair 650M psu. Also I use a Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo. I think my cooling and setup can hand a overclock at 3.8ghz or even 4ghz. My CPU runs around 27c idle and if I'm making
  12. From what I was reading, AMD video cards are not fully supported by Adobe and cause problems from what other people were saying. I didn't want to take a chance..also like you said the Radeon HD6970 uses a lot more power and probably have louder fans. My system is pretty quiet, kind of want to keep it that way..so hopefully the Nvidia GTX 750 Ti SC does just that..plus I don't have to dig out my extra modular psu cables and because that HD6970 didn't have the right displayports, I'd have to get a new cable. The GTX-750 Ti SC doesn't require extra power, so I don't have to mess with my cable man
  13. Well my friend sent me the video card, but he accidentally sent me the wrong one. Sent a Radeon HD6970 instead. I got a little upset because he told me he was sending a GTX 670 which is a far, far better video card. But he made a honest mistake. But in his defensive, he gave me a expensive video card for nothing. But its not going to work for me, its older technology as well. Doesn't even use PCie 3.0. So I just had enough and ordered a brand new one. I was trying to save some money, but can't always I guess. I ended up ordering the Nvidia Geforce GTX-750 Ti SC. I hear its a killer card for
  14. Thats why I like Fractal Design cases. I have a Arc Midi, but I think I might get a Define R5 because I like the design better.
  15. I have a 800mb pagefile set on my SSD and it Windows has yet to use it even though I use photoshop and lightroom all day. So I guess its working fine for me.
