Cause - Page fault in nonpaged area

Dear All,

I OC'ed my CPU and GPU's.
Ran prime for about 10 hours which was stable without any BSOD's and temps around the 70 degrees.

I started gaming and after a few hours (approx. 2.5) I get the a BSDO:
Error: Page Fault Non-paged area.
After searching for a while I understood that it has to do with RAM.

Could anyone advise me how to tackle this issue?
Do I need to adjust the voltage of my RAM? Or other settings?
I have the following OC specs:

CPU: Intel Core i5-3570K, s1155 (Stock =3.4 Ghz)
Motherboard: Z77A-G45
CPU Voltage: 1.3050 V
CPU Bus Speed/Multiplier: 100/47
Clock Speed: 4.7 Ghz
RAM: Corsair Vengeance DDR3,1600-16GB KIT
RAM Timings: 9/9/9/24
GPU: Crossfire - Sapphire HD7950 - Boost,3GB @1100/1500
Cooling: Corsair H80i
OS: Windows 8

Thank you in advance,


Best solution

could be driver related if it only occurs during gaming, grab the latest amd beta drivers and get driver fusion.

uninstall current driver and dont restart.
run driver fusion amd cleaner then restart.
install latest amd beta driver as custom and only install the display and hdmi driver.

see if this helps then will move on if its not a driver problem.
