Hello everybody. This is my first post, so i don't know if this is even in the right category. :??: 

Here's my PC specs.

CPU: I7 3770K 3.5/3.9
Motherboard: Asus Maximus V Extreme
RAM: 4x4gb Corsair Dominator Platinum
GPU: Saphire HD 7870 2GB
Soundcard: Asus HDAV 1.3 Deluxe
PSU: Corsair AX750watt
Chassis: Coolermaster HAF X
SSD: Corsair Force GT 240GB
HDD: x2 1TB SATA Seagates / x1 2TB SATA Seagate / x1 320GB SATA Seagate
Watercooling: Corsair H100

I have finished building my PC yesterday, installed Windows 7, installed drivers and the Asus Suite ii.
Then i tried to OC my CPU with the Asus suite iis' TurboV EVO (CPU Level Up). I OC'd my CPU to 4.2ghz then to 4.4ghz. (That's the settings it gave me). Temperature was 29 to 35 Celsius.
Then after about an hour (don't know really) i got a BSOD (got BSOD twice. PC just restarted. In event viewer the error description was "Blue Screen") Is this because of the program, is the program reliable? Or is it a hardware fault? I really do hope it's not. Do I need to uninstall Asus Suite ii? Is manually OC better than software OC? Can anyone help me with this, it will be much appreciated.

Thank you

Of course, if you don't know how to overclock you can get a BSOD.

Does anybody know what it could be if my PC restarts and crashes. It is not overclocked. Event Viewer says something like "Kernel-Power". Could it be RAM, MB or PSU?
