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!!

Most likely. I drop the ram speed before increasing the cpu fsb so the net ram speed is spec.

Right now I got the OC for the CPU at 4.2 and it's running nice under 1.5 volts - like 1.29 ish last I checked.

The ram at 1600 is around 1.25 and 1.26 volts.

Any other tricks for stability? Also - I'd really appreciate some more insight from everyone here.
