Is my i5 750 faulty? (BSOD 0x101)

I got this BSOD a couple of hours ago:
A clock interrupt was not received on a secondary processor within the allocated time interval.

*** STOP: 0x00000101 (0x0000000000000031, 0x0000000000000000, 0xFFFFF880031D5180, 0x0000000000000003)


My system specification are as follows:

Intel i5 750 (On stock configuration and using stock cooler)
ASUS P7H57D-V EVO motherboard
4GB (2x2GB) Crucial Ballistix DDR3 1333MHz RAM
HIS ATi Radeon HD 5770 1GB
Samsung HD103SJ 1TB hard drive

Also taking into account this thread:

Is my processor faulty? Or is it another issue?

  1. BSOD's are far more often caused by RAM issues. Have you manually set the RAM speed, timings, and voltage to their rated values in the BIOS? Have you run Memtest86+ overnight to test for RAM errors? That's where I'd start.

    Did you do a fresh OS install on this system or did you try to use a HD from another system? That's another cause of BSOD's.
  2. RAM settings are set in the bios. Had run memtest for several hours during the day and had no issues. (Can't run overnight, the computer is in my bedroom and makes too much noise)

    It's a fresh install of 7 Professional 64bit.
