Help with overclock crash Tags: CPUs Overclocking Last response: September 23, 2009 5:36 PM in Overclocking Share primus September 18, 2009 11:36:22 AM Hi guys. I keep getting a blue screen every couple days or so under windows 7, but the problem was under vista as well. I suspect it's due to the OC of my CPU.. BTW, I did run an analysis of the kernel memory dump but not sure where to post it here are some of my specs: Intel E8400@ 3.98 Ghz - 1.36v FSB: 440 Mhz FSB RAM -1:1 memory is not over voltaged as far as i remember.

Post back your complete system specs and the results of these two tests. Do NOT post the kernel dump!! It has no pertinent information and will only serve to annoy us with pages of useless data. primus September 23, 2009 11:23:52 AM sry for taking so long on the stress test, so prime95 ran for 13.5 hours and memtest86 v3.5 did 8 passes with no errors. no Bluescreen since then BTW, maybe the GPU is at fault? slong September 23, 2009 5:36:25 PM bluescreen usually indicates unstability or corruption and sense your cpu is oc thats the best chance... overheating also will cause it to bs...if both of those are fine check ram and gpu stability Can't find your answer ?
