2500k processor giving blue screen

I built a computer a while ago with a i5 2500k processor and a p8p67 pro rev 3.1 motherboard, and every time I start my computer it boots up and works for like 60 seconds before I get a physical memory dump. I noticed in task manager before the memory dump that the processor is working at 100%. Once the memory dump happens and the computer restarts the computer works perfectly. I have all the updated drivers I believe. Any ideas?

hmm, any chance you have a virus or malware? might i suggest booting up into safe mode with networking. then download some good anti spyware like:
free edition of course
run the scan an see what comes up. if anything critical shows up, might be a good idea to get a good antivirus like:
they have a free trial for their programs to see if you like it.

beyond that, i'm not really a rocket scientist. in my own experience crazy things like this are usually cause by rogue apps and malware.
hope this helps.

Did you do a fresh windows install when you upgraded your mobo??

Have you run memtest86 on your memory?

Yes i tried reinstalling windows 3 times and every time it has had this problem, so I know its not malware. I just ran a mem test on it which took forever cause I have 16 gigs of ram but it all passed zero errors.

I'd run memtest again, try 2 sticks at a time. You definitely have a hardware issue.

I let the memtest run through and it didnt have a problem. I have been having issues with this graphics card I have maybe thats the problem, whenever I enable sli it crashes both cards until I reinstall the driver and restart then it works. Maybe its causing this problem too its a gts 250.

Use malwarebytes to see if there are any viruses....
