Blue Screen of Death Problem 0x101

Just recently I finished building a system on a budget but have been getting BSOD 0x101 at random times, mostly more commonly after I overclock from 2.3Ghz to anything over 2.5Ghz.

Here is the BSOD code that windows gave me after I rebooted:

Problem signature:
Problem Event Name: BlueScreen
OS Version: 6.1.7100.
Locale ID: 1033

Additional information about the problem:
BCCode: 101
BCP1: 00000031
BCP2: 00000000
BCP3: 807C3120
BCP4: 00000001
OS Version: 6_1_7100
Service Pack: 0_0
Product: 256_1

I did a little research and came up with "CLOCK_WATCHDOG_TIMEOUT", which makes me think somethings up with the CPU. I'm not sure what it means but I hope someone here could tell me what it is and how to fix it.

My PC Specs if it helps:

Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit RC
OCZ Reaper 1066 RAM 5-5-5-18 2.0v
ECS A780GM-A AM2/AM2+ Motherboard with all BIOS updates
Raidmax Hybrid 2 550w PSU Crossfire Supported
AMD Phenom 9600 2.5Ghz Agena AM2+ 1.325v
HIS 4850 IceQ4 Turbo 512mb 740/1100 Stable
Raidmax Scorpio Mid ATX (1 LED, 4 Standard 80mm Fans)
Seagate Barracuda 500gb 7200rpm Hard Drive

Unstable OC? Was this a BIOS oc or software oc?

What are your voltages and temps?

Thats easy man, go into Bios and raise your Vcore by the smallest amount possible. It should stabilize your system, run 2 hours of prime95 to be certain. have a nice day.

Stop code 0x101 is related to CPU interrupts.

Bug Check 0x101: CLOCK_WATCHDOG_TIMEOUT- This indicates that an expected clock interrupt on a secondary processor, in a multi-processor system, was not received within the allocated interval.

This also applies to multi-core systems. Sounds like a bad OC to me.

I Just recently got a BSOD of 0x101 and I Never(Not this error) got one b4, this is my first time in 2 month of my system OC...

Windows 7 Ultimate 64-Bit
i7-950 OC to 3841MHz at 1.225v(Should I raise vCore, I Currently got a Tt V1 AX and it can't cool my i7 at 3.8GHz so I cant really test it out more than 2 mins)
KHX 2x2GB OC to 2009MHz 9-10-9-24(Stable with memtest86+ with 6 passes)
Viotek 700W v2
Evga GT220(Currently have it OC which isn't the problem here)
