Same here, I literally just figured out it was a direct link to the forums here and was about to post it. I was really freaking out about this lol, even fully deleted all my caches, chrome, and ran multiple virus checks.
Intel just earns more money by simply unlocking the multiplier. That’s business, they get people to pay more for essentially the same product. That does not make it smarter to overclock it. Intel does not give any warranty or whatsoever if you overclock their processors. If you feel like you have to, only because you can, then do it. The pure fact of getting Blue Screens while working would be enough of an argument for me to not do it in a working environment.
Blue screens are not at all typical for a properly overclocked machine.
K series processors have a TON of space left over to overclock, so if it is done right, it’s perfectly reasonable to do so. The K series processors are made for the specific purpose of being overclocked.
What are your temps looking like?
Haswell chips are known not to be overtly overclocking friendly past 4.4 and they also tend to run really hot in comparison to Ivy and Sandy bridge.
I would suggest clocking down to 4.4 and lowering your voltage as much as possible for a stable clock.
Also consider upping your load line calibration to very high or extreme if you haven’t already. Also as was already suggested, be sure to run a prime 95 test for a good 8 hours to make sure your computer is stable and not getting too hot.
Heya Designers / Illustrators. I had a stockpile of spare textures that I wasn’t going to use, so I decided to give some of them away!
What’s inside? 16 textures in .JPG format sized 15” x 15” @ 300DPI (4500px x 4500px)

I think some of them are pretty darn cool, hopefully you find them useful!
You can say thanks by following me on twitter =) http://www.twitter.com/mattborchert
That’s extremely impressive, congrats!

I would suggest an ASUS such as this:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834231149
I live in the US so I am unsure of hardware prices overseas, so I tried to pick something on the cheaper side. But as you can see for $1000 US this is a very powerful machine with a Haswell i7. The main downside is that this particular laptop is not 1080p, so I would look for a 1080p version.

I use I Need a Budget 4 – it’s simple and quite effective.
mattborchert saidI’m pretty sure you don’t own a Mac. And I’m pretty sure my desktop computer costs more than a brand new iMac, that should say it’s “high quality” and considering parts of it are dead or dying and it’s 2 years old, and my mac is 4 years old and still on fire… well, I’ll say 100% Apple has better quality hardware, if not, the software is more optimized not to murder the hardware it’s running on!
That’s inaccurate. The hardware within an Apple is no higher quality than what you’ll find in premium PC components (and arguably lower).
I’ve owned several macs in my lifetime, and currently do own one that I use every day.
I’ve also built about 15 PCs in my lifetime and have been building PCs for well over 10 years now.
The difference is I base my thoughts on long term hardware studies, and facts, and not personal opinion.
Take a look at page 6 here: http://www.squaretrade.com/htm/pdf/SquareTrade_laptop_reliability_1109.pdf
My current PC is at the login screen after pushing power in about 8 seconds, and absolutely decimates my top of the line i7 iMac in terms of pure power. Different machines for different purposes. Also price does not equal quality. It never has. For example ASUS is far from being the most expensive PC’s on the market, but they are among the very best in terms of quality – meanwhile HP charges an arm and a leg for some of its machines that use some really substandard parts.
That’s the cool part about building your own PC, you can pick each part individually based on which manufacturer makes the highest quality part available for that specific purpose.
Apple makes some astonishingly good hardware, no doubt about it, but if you’re looking for either the best value, or most powerful, PC holds both of those titles currently.
