    Yeah, I was thinking vcore as well. I was already at 1.344v though, with a +0.020 offset, and want to keep it as low as possible.

    It didn't like the +0.005 offset lol. trying 0.010.

    also trying the other kit out to see if one works better than the other.

    Yeah understandable, as long as you stay at or below 1.40v and can keep temps in check you're safe.

    Run her to where you are comfortable with voltages and temps. As you said the lower the better.

    Bad news...

    One of my GPU's blew up yesterday - there was even a massive spark inside the case. No leakage, or loose cables or anything.

    My PC immediately died, but i got it going again once I took the faulty GPU out.

    Problem is...

    My CPU fails prime instantly in XMP with settings that it worked fine with before this happened. In fact, it now fails with the memory set to auto 1333MHz.

    My temps have also gone up considerably, and VTT is now drawing 1.3v.

    My temps have gotten to up to 75° on the hottest core with an oc of 4.2GHz, and memory on Auto. it failed this test at 1.3v after approximately 2 minutes...

    I had it running prime with 64GB IN XMP, with 4.2GHz at 1.25v for over 1 hour before, and I think the hottest temp was 61°c.

    It looks like this has killed my new, 3-day-old, and quite good i7. FML! What do I do?

    It'll only run Prime95 Blend on stock core multiplier now, and it's still hitting 70°c. Anything above stock multiplier, and workers stop within seconds.

    Vcore is at 1.25 (auto)

    Oh man, that really bites. I guess a clear cmos didn't help bring your settings back? I have no idea what to tell you.

    Maybe call the company of your gpu manufacturer and explain the situation to them. I never heard of a gpu blowing up and sparking like that, maybe since it damaged your cpu they might replace it. Let's hope that was all that was damaged. Could it have damaged the motherboard too?

    I believe it was my AX1200i that went. I didn't see the spark dead-on, I was looking at my monitor, and the tower is to my right, but I saw a flash in the corner of my eye that looked to originate from the bottom of the case, and the GPU that went was in slot 1.

    However... I think there may have actually been a problem with that GPU anyway. I've had this strange issue, where every LED in my case, which are all red, would gradually get brighter and brighter until they became orange. I have previously tested everything with three different PSU's, and they did it on all of them. This only started happening at about the time that I installed the GPU that has now died, and since it did, coincidently, all the LED's in my case are a nice solid Red, and stay that way.

    So... the hypothesis is, that there was a minor fault in that GPU, but not severe enough to compromise it's performance, and when my PSU went, the GPU got belted, died, and everything else got damaged.

    Everything seems to be affected, sadly. I haven't run memtest yet to see if the memory has issues (it didn't last time I ran it, prior to the spark). I have run Intel CPU Diagnostic tool, and the CPU passed, but it needs 0.1v more to run at stock multiplier, will not run prime with any OC, and is hitting temperatures up to 20° higher with default settings compared to previous OC settings and temps.

    My brand new Ramapge IV Black edition seems to be a bit laggy in the BIOS (Sometimes it just locks up completely), and during startup. I've re-flashed it with version 0701 - which is what I was using before, and also tried switching to the second BIOS - no good. BIOS profiles no longer work either, even after flashing. They will save, but board crashes if I try and load one of them, even after recreating them all over again, after flashing it.

    I can't see any physical damage - no black/burned areas visable, no caps domed, but it behaves like there is a fair bit of resistance somewhere. This would explain why my CPU now behaves the way it does too, if I'm correct in my assumption.

    The only things I'm confident are ok so far, are my RAIDR, remaining GPU, Both my 840 Evo's, and my storage HDD. All the drives are returning similar results in Crystal Disk mark to the ones observed prior to D-day (Death-Day).

    Everything still "works" (Including the PSU) - it boots, runs, games, etc (default settings only of course). but it is very obvious that there is quite a bit of damage. It felt like a new computer before this, now it feels very odd indeed. The sort of feeling you get from a computer right before it dies completely. As I said, games run, but there are moments where it seems like it's about to crash.

    This is a very sad day

    You could have your components tested , this will confirm which are good and which are bad.

    I just can't believe this, it was working so good yesterday and now this today.

    I know man, especially as the CPU seemed to be quite a good one. Not amazing, but very capable.

    I'm going to see if I can contact Corsair tomorrow, and let them know what's happened. I've already RMA'd the dead GPU, but that was before I realised the extent of the damage.

    So you'd recommend sending all the components back to the manufacturer for testing?

    if you have access to another pc, you could test your ram, HDD/SSD and gpu are working.

    You could have the mobo and psu tested at a pc shop instead of sending it off, this might save you some time doing it this way.

    Update:

    Things might be looking to be better than first thought!

    I ran Memtest86+ overnight, and there were no problems detected.

    The Motherboard, and BIOS are now much more responsive - as out of box basically, so it seems to have sorted itself out.

    I'm now running an OC of 4.5GHz, with 32GB of RAM in XMP (2400MHz). I'm using an offset of +0.030v on the Vcore - all other settings on Auto - easy peasy! I ran ROG RealBench for only 15 minutes, as it was failing in less time than this before. I'd worked my way back up gradually, +1 on the multiplier each time until I got to 45. So, I haven't run a stress test for an hour or more yet, but I've been playing WoW for the last 2 hours, and no crashie crashie yet.

    The offset I'm using has the CPU drawing 1.344v in RealBench/Prime, and 1.328v in WoW - not bad.

    Now... the remaining concern...

    I'm hitting 82°c in RealTemp, no matter what clock I run above 4.2GHz, and up to 75°c with a stock multiplier. The thing is, that a mate of mine is also hitting 82°c with his 3570K at 4.5GHz. He started getting that temp on the same day I did (My testing and telling him my results got him overclock happy again). What's even more of a coincidence, is that we were both in the low to mid 60°'s; and now we're both getting 82° with the same settings we were using before!.

    Now... it would seem strange that a Windows update would cause this, but there was one between my previous testing, and the testing I did after the spark - it's the ONLY thing that's changed in the entire system configuration. Therefore, I am not convinced that the reading of 82° is entirely accurate, and MAYBE a new version of RealTemp is needed for the evolution of Windows. Either that, or there's some issue with this new windows update, that is causing the CPU to run hotter. I might be fishing here, but I have thought about this logically - What, exactly, has changed? There is no way in hell that I would be hitting 82°c otherwise with such a reasonable voltage, and cooled in a custom loop, with a high quality block, and MX-4 compound - NO WAY!

    My Temps in WoW (and presumably other games as well) are fine at 55°c hottest core, so I'm not worried. In real world application, my CPU will NEVER be stressed as much as Prime, or RealBench will stress it.
