0x00000124 was the BSOD BCC code that I was getting. It seemed to happen regardless of voltages that I was able to throw around comfortably... so I backed off the clock speed a bit.

What are you guys running your voltages at for those 3.6ghz overclocks? I find it very hard to believe that my chip is THAT much worse... 3.4ghz @ 1.5 is a huge difference compared to 3.6ghz @ 1.35....
im running 1.5V idle which drops to about 1.45V on full load at 3.6GHZ... been running it like this since august 2008.. my VID is 1.3125V and the cooler is OCZ vendetta 2 (great cooler but terrible clamping mechanism)
