    Clock Watchdog Timeout

    System:

    - EVGA RTX 3080 TI FTW3 Ultra Gaming OC
    - Asus Rog Strix Z690-F Gaming Wifi
    - Corsair Dominator Platinum DDR5 5600 MHz CL36 2x16 GB
    - Intel i9-12900K
    - Corsair H170i AIO (420mm radiator)
    - Western Digital SN850 2 TB NVMe SSD
    - SeaSonic Focus 850W 80+ Platinum

    Apologies in advance if this is not the right spot for this question, in which case I would appreciate if you could point me in the right direction.

    I keep getting CLOCK_WATCHDOG_TIMEOUT BSODs. I have tried with and without XMP II, with and without Asus AI overclocking, and even 100% default settings. I also thought it might have been because the motherboard jumper for additional CPU voltage wasn't 'enabled', so I moved it, but I am still getting this BSOD in <10 minutes on Prime95. The thermals on the CPU are all under 100°C on each core. Even with stock settings, the cores reach 5.3 MHz. I have been told this is an issue with the voltage, and I should raise VCore slightly, however I don't know how to do this. It even BSODs occasionally on idle loads, with only 1% of CPU in use. All my drivers are up to date, as is the BIOS. If the problem is indeed the CPU voltage, how do I go about raising it safely? Thanks again, any help is appreciated.

    - load defaults in BIOS and reboot then
    - flash bios to latest
    - once again load defaults in bios after flashing latest bios reboot

    With everything at default including Memory running at 4800 (default) try running Memtest to ensure no issues with memory, if you pass
    then go ahead and run a number of benchmarks etc....if you continue to get Watchdog error BSOD then the only thing I could think to try would be a clean install of Windows 11 (assuming your running W11.

    Also make sure all your Drivers are correctly installed including Clean install of GPU Drivers....

    Then report back.

    Dont bother enabling XMP until you do all the above first and am sure you have no BSOD's

    I have done all of that and it still BSOD. Also, Win 11 way too unstable for me, still 10.

    So I got it stable by lowering the default memory clock from 5600 MHz to 4800 MHz and turning on adaptive VCore instead of auto in BIOS. How do I now go about allowing it to use 5600 MHz

    Hello,

    Try the following firstly, apply XMP

    set:

    System Agent (VCCSA): 0.98
    VDD: 1.35
    VDDQ 1.35

    I was only able to set VCCSA at 0.99, it kept rounding. This seemed way more stable, and lasted at least 15 minutes, way better than ever before on Prime95, however it still crashed, albeit with a different error this time. 'A fatal hardware error occured. WHEA logger event ID 1.'

    Upon further event inspection, I noticed that this 'Critical' event occured a few seconds before: https://pastebin.com/yaa0FAFp
    After that, there is an 'Error' event: https://pastebin.com/TuNJu7nc

    Any reason why you're using Prime? Use the system for what you built it for.
