This is my last effort at overclocking this POS.

Gigabyte Z87M-D3H

It seems that if I change just about any settings in Bios, this happens...

Really shotting sound, along with clunky slow windows interactions, and sometimes will give me Display driver has stopped errors. Keep in mind, these issues only happen when I change something in Bios. It could be something as simple as enabling the XMP memory profile to set my memory to the correct timings. It can be manually setting the voltage and CPU ratio to the default. If I manually set it, it won't work. It could be CPU ratio at something like 4.0 and everything else on auto and it will still do this.

I'm wondering if the processor or motherboard is bad. I've contacted Gigabyte, and despite me telling them EVERYTHING, including "If I try to manually set them or use the XMP profile, it will give me issues", they respond with "Does your memory support XMP profile?
if so does please enable the profile support as it will adjust the memory automatically to it's correct spec without the need to perform the manual setting changes. "

I don't know what else to do, and I'm just extremely frustrated at spending money for a Z87 board and a K processor and am unable to get ANY overclock at all.

I'm borderline selling this POS system and just build a new one from the ground up. When something doesn't work the way you expect, or at least half what you expect, it feels tainted and dirty. I feel like throwing it out a window.

Nothing wrong with running a cpu at stock.

If you want to throw it out a window, might as well send it to me >.>

- Are all your mobo drivers / firmware up-to-date?
- Are you sure your thermal paste is applied correctly?

Yes, everything is updated, drivers, bios, firmware. I don't have an issue with temperatures...unless it's auto, in which case it's over 1.3v which I don't want anyway.

I run mine at 1.45v 24/7

Granted it's a different cpu brand entirely...

i recently learned that every chip is a lottery draw.

guess this isn't one of the good ones.
PC hardware doesn't need to match console hardware in price when PC gamers save literal thousands from the software they buy.
