The motherboard is an Asus Z89-K The cpu is an Intel i5-4670k The ram is Patriot Viper 8gb DDR3 1600mhz My video card is: Nvidia 560ti My power supply is a coolermaster 550w
I was thinking maybe its overheating, I live in texas and outside its like 35 deg F so I have a heater going inside, and I used the stock cpu fan which i wasnt very impressed by. It had built in thermal paste which i assumed was good enough but not sure. My old cpu fan was a Zalman but it doesnt fit this cpu/mobo.
Just opened the minidump file says caused by driver hal.dll, caused by address hal.dll+12906, then also says crash adress ntoskrnl.exe+71f00
And i have already run memtest and it passed
I had those same .dll and .exe files earlier this year when I built my rig. My fix was purely through the voltage setting; it was set to adaptive, I set it to a steady 1.1v and the BSODs have not come back.
