What driver is it saying is giving the BSOD

More than likely it is your nvidia driver.

Download the newest driver for your Video card, and reinstall that driver

It may be a heating issue. How many fans do you have?

hmm, what are your CPU temps at under load? It sure doesn't seem like it should be a heating issue with your cooling rig, but you never know.

The most common reasons are: 1. Drivers, 2. AHCI BIOS/IDE Windows, 3. PSU, 4. BIOS setting(s)/corruption, 5. Bad component.

1. Event Manager, look at the Critical errors listed and post them here; see below.
Run MSCONFIG and select Diagnostic Mode, reboot, and test. Does that correct the problems including BSOD?

2. AHCI BIOS/IDE Windows - IF the BIOS is set to AHCI and Windows Start = 3 (IDE) you'll get all sorts of problems. To fix this, run 'Fix it' or manually change the registry values. Remember: BIOS SATA -> AHCI <=> Start = 0 /OR/ BIOS SATA -> IDE <=> Start = 3.
Fix It - http://support.microsoft.com/kb/922976
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Msahci
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\IastorV

3. Question - What PSU? How old?
4. What BIOS Changes above 'Load Defaults' were made?
5. Try booting and Testing with (1) stick of RAM in the 2nd DIMM slot from CPU.
Question - What EXACT set of Dominator GT 3x4GB or 6x2GB? I prefer a link.
Question - {see #4} What BIOS settings? In 6x2GB DO NOT use XMP!

Question - H70, {see #4} What BIOS settings? What Header is the H70 pump connected to?

the bump and fan is powere by the power supply runs 100% and the power supply is hx 1200 by corsair and the rest i have to get some thermal paste to hook up my h70 before i can turn it back on. The bsod happens when i first turn it on and the in the middle of a medium load everything shows to be good the ram pulls up 12gb ddr3 this is my first build got about 1600 in it just frustrating getting these bsod. Will be next week before i get the thermal pasts couse i travel for a living so please be patiant with me thank all and everybody for there post and helping me

More than likely Item #2 is where you need to start. If you're using XMP in the BIOS then don't especially if using (2) kits.

Try a Clear CMOS; see the video for options 'How to' - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rdHH9KrceR0

The post will be around, but you answered none of the Questions expect 1/2 of Q #3.

If you're over heating with 'stock' then something is bad wrong. Pull the side of the Case off. Airflow, there needs to be MORE AIR OUT than in; negative pressure.

Q7 - What Case?
Q8 - What BIOS changes?

Then at minimum you'll probably need to increase the BCLK and manually set the RAM or a simpler DOCP approach but loose some frequency; XMP is a guaranteed failure. I assume (2) Kits of CMT6GX3M3A1866C9 DDR3-1866 9-9-9-24-2N @ 1.65v.

Blinders on to the RAM only 2 of 6 Q&A's.

H70 - move the 'Pump' to the CPU_Fan header -- BUT see BIOS settings blow

BIOS:
Load Defaults or Clear CMOS - use Jumper method - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rdHH9KrceR0

AI Treaker /
AI Overclock Tuner -> DOCP
DRAM OC Profile -> DDR3-18XX MHz ; depends on the BCLK
DRAM Timing Control/Enter
DRAM CAS -> 9
DRAM RAS to CAS -> 9
DRAM RAS PRE -> 9
DRAM RAS ACT -> 24
-
DRAM Timing Mode -> 2N
-
QPI/DRAM Core Voltage -> 1.25v~1.30v~1.35v ; with 6x_GB it needs to be manually set, start with 1.25v + test
DRAM Bus Voltage -> 1.64v~1.68v ; with 6x_GB +0.03v may be needed, start with 1.64v

Power /
Q-Fan -> Disabled ; after loading Defaults it should be Disabled, the H70 requires 100% power

Save & Exit = Yes.

Using the CMT12GX3M6A1866C9 'may' work XMP, but IMO set it manually as above - I knew the timings/specs for GT's; yes it's a 12GB 6x2GB Kit.

The only Dominator 24GB Kit is the CMP24GX3M6A1600C9 which is DDR3-1600 9-9-9-24-2N @ 1.65v.

I assume the Event Manager just showed a 'shutdown' with no reason/driver(s) listed; in the Citical errors as above. The temps look fine.

To fully rule-out the RAM, create a bootbable CD/DVD of Memtest, use the ISO/zip file, boot and run for 2-4 full passes or at least couple hours.
Memtest86+ -> http://www.memtest.org/

Then with your 'Temp App' run Prime95 + Blend for at least an hour, watch the temps for the first 10~15 minutes for spikes - http://www.mersenne.org/freesoft/

I only use AHCI, as above, but a I made a typo which is fixed below.

BIOS:
SATA -> AHCI
Save and Exit = Yes

2. AHCI BIOS/IDE Windows - IF the BIOS is set to AHCI and Windows Start = 3 (IDE) you'll get all sorts of problems. To fix this, run 'Fix it' or manually change the registry values. Remember: BIOS SATA -> AHCI <=> Start = 0 /OR/ BIOS SATA -> IDE <=> Start = 3.

AHCI = 0 = Start
Fix It - http://support.microsoft.com/kb/922976

Check the registry
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Msahci
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\IastorV

Example for AHCI and Start = 0

I don't know what you mean, but 'sometimes' changing it causes a problem unless the Intel SATA drivers are installed. In all my builds, Windows 7, I only had one PITA issue to get AHCI working. It's not required, but highly recommended.

The LGA 1155's are by Default AHCI.

I assume when you built the PC you installed 'Intel(R) Matrix Storage Manager Driver' - http://usa.asus.com/Motherboards/Intel_Socket_1366/SABE... IF using the Marvell install the Marvell 9128 Controller Driver non-beta driver. Make the BIOS changes, reboot, and Run Fix it.

Did you download all of the drivers - first? If that happens again, AHCI BSOD, you MUST make certain AHCI = 0 = Start and IF you get a boot failure then boot off the Windows 7 DVD, press F8 and run the 'Startup Repair' -> http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/products/fe...
