I'm trying to figure out what is happening with a new PC I've made. I can play skyrim for a long while and I have no crashes, then once in a while the game crashes or I blue screen. I tried to play the TOR beta over the weekend and it crashed to the desktop about 10 times before I was able to play it for 5 to 6 hours and take a break. I messed with the settings but I don't understand why my games aren't working right. I also tried to play BF3 but that just didn't work for more than 5 minutes at a time. I know that BF3 is a crap game loaded with bugs so I figured Skyrim would be the game that I could test my system on. It works great 90% of the time.

I've run WhoCrashed and this is what I've been getting over the last few crashes:

-------------------------

In the beginning I had the CPU overclocked to 4.4, but I couldn't get anything to work and I got the errors that related to the OC. I dropped the OC to 4.2 and I haven't had errors with crashing because of it since then.

Here is my rig.

HD:
WD Caviar Black 1 TB 7200 RPM 64mb cache
Crucical M4 128gig SSD

CPU:
i5-2500K

Mobo:
ASROCK P67 Extreme4 Gen3

GPU:
MSI 570GTX Twin Frozr III PE/OC x 2
Cooling:
Noctua DH-14

RAM:
G.Skill Sniper Low Voltage Series 8GIG 1600

Optical Drive:
LITE-ON 24x DVD Combo Drive
PSU:
Corsair Pro Series 80+Gold 1200W
Case:
Silverstone TJ07

My drivers are up to date as far as I can tell. I've ran Furmark for over 10 minutes and I get a decent 70 C on the primary card so I know heat isn't the problem.

MY OS is Windows 7 64 bit Pro Ed.

I'm not sure what is going on, I can put the factory OC back down to stock settings and I have - but I haven't tested it yet.

What's going on or what can I run/give you guys as far as information goes to help me fix this issue.

***
Slight update - My ram was overclocked to 1866 Mhz, I know from reading reviews that RAM has a lot of stability issues at higher clocks. I just put it down back to 1600.

Was that my problem????

Insight please!!

Did you up the voltage when you OC'd to 1866? You can run those at 1.5v no problem, I have the same set and that's what I'm doing.

You are probably better off asking someone from Bethesda.

Bethesda won't help me figure out if those error codes are partially generated by instability of my ram. I'm looking for some insight from anyone that has expertise with those error codes/ ram issues.

Do you experience instability anywhere else?

I only suffered this problem playing Skyrim or TOR. It would happen quicker if I had three monitors vs one monitor. If I play Skyrim in three monitors now I get artifacts.
