    If you're getting BSOD with voltage at 1.4 and the CPU is only up to 4.3 Ghz something is very wrong

    I would consider swapping that CPU out ,Honestly i have done this with my 6850k when i first got it i had my first one that only overclocked to 4.4Ghz and no more i was kind of disappointed so i took it back and swapped it for one my wife picked out per my instructions

    Point i am making i got the chip to overclock to 4.5Ghz stable and also can get it to boot at 4.6 but fails stress test (Sigh)

    Maybe the Cpu just wasn't good to begin with

    BSODs while playing games, Error IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL-ten-forums-bsod-image-9-9-2017.png

    The above bsod from 9/4/2017 was the Nvidia misbehaving driver.
    Minidumps have easy to find dates.
    Memory dumps can be from any period of time.

    It was
    BugCheck A, {30a8418, 2, 0, fffff8007751f535}


    Probably caused by : memory_corruption

    Would it be wise to purchase Intel's Performance Tuning Protection Plan (Home Page) and request a replacement processor this way? It looks like I am outside Newegg's RMA period.

    Since I already overclocked the CPU I voided the processor's standard 3 year warranty. It sounds like since I am within my first year of ownership, Intel may provide me with a replacement processor if I purchase the Performance Tuning Protection Plan.

    You shouldn't have to purchase anything if you bought the processor boxed

    All you need to do is contact intel give them the information and the sku of the cpu they will let you know within a few days if you can send it in for a replacement

    The only Cpu's they won't replace are tampered with and OEM chips that were put in other machines but if you had the cpu under a year they should be able to hook you up no questions asked and overclocking has nothing to do with warranty they made them for that

    Before giving up completely on this processor have you checked that the thermal paste is doing its job, it can sometimes help if you remove the old and reapply new. Can't remember if you had already done this. Temperatures getting too high can be a cause of BSOD.

    Thanks for the tip @philc43. As much as I hated installing that Hyper 212 Evo I gave it a shot. Removed the CPU cooler, removed the thermal paste, applied new paste, and replaced the cooler.

    I was unable to boot into Windows with default settings and got a variety of different BSOD error messages. I've attached another minidump.

    I tried 4.2GHz at 1.4V. This passed the IntelBurnTest (30 loops) with a max temp of 86C. A little hot, still, so I decreased the CPU Core Voltage to 1.385 V. This caused a "K Mode Exception Not Handled" BSOD during the Intel Burn Test (temps got to max of 81C before the crash). This is just 4.2GHz so I'd say that the thermal paste wasn't the issue.

    I've returned to Turbo Boost disabled, automatic voltage settings for now since this is still stable and at a safe temperature.

    What do you guys think? Should I try to get this processor replaced, or even both the processor and motherboard? The second option is daunting but I'd rather rebuild now than have my rig crash on me for good later when I'm totally out of warranty.

    I would get that CPU replaced even if its not the problem you'd more than likely get a far better one (Odds are in your favour) While the CPU is away I would try getting the Motherboard RMAed to be sure it not a power delivery issue

    Just an observation: Your BSOD's all seem to point to driver issues....

    Thanks @worf105. What is the best way to describe the issue that may be present with the motherboard? This is requested by GIgabyte support for the RMA process.

    Should I describe the issue as "My motherboard is exhibiting problems with its power delivery to the CPU and will not boot into Windows under default settings," or something along those lines?

    I'm at a loss as to what may have caused the driver issues but I have indeed tried using DDU to uninstall GPU drivers and reinstalling old versions, and this problem reoccurs. I've also performed two clean Windows 10 installations with the same result. Unless Gigabyte has bad drivers on its support page for my motherboard, I'm not sure which driver is at fault.

    That sounds fine for Gigabyte and you're very welcome. Let us know how you get on.
