I have had my computer built for a little under a month now and have been having constant problems with a blue screen playing Batllefield Bad Company 2. The problem doesn't happen right away but happens after about 20 minutes of game play. I originally thought this could be an overheating problem so I installed something to monitor the temps in my machine.
CPUS will usually run at 60C
GPU will heat up to about 80C
To recreate the problem I installed a few things to stress test my hardware. I did the graphics card first and monitored the temps thinking I could recreate the blue screen which didn't happen at all. This software ran it to the max and I let it run for about 30 minutes with no blue screen which kind of threw me off.
I opened the case up thinking it could be the airflow not properly moving through the case that causes the blue screen. This helped a little bit but I still get it while gaming.. After the blue screen the following comes up in the log. I have also tried to stress test the RAM which found no problems. Could it be something on the CPU? I use this computer all day and it works fine. IT only happens when I'm playing Battlefield Bad Company 2 after about 20 minutes.
I have never overclocked anything on this computer.
Thanks so much in advance.
OS: Windows 7 64 bit
CPU: Intel i5 2600k
RAM: 8 gigs Corsair
Graphics: ATI Radeon HD 4600
Intel HD Graphics on board
I had another ATI Video card in before thinking it could have been a problem with the card but I'm still getting the blue screen. My old card was an MSI R6450 MDIG3

Thanks for the follow ups guy. I think I found the problem so I'll list it out in this thread for anybody looking for an answer that may have a similar problem.
Mobo is a GA-Z68MA and there was software on there for overclocking. I uninstalled this software and have not gotten a blue screen in Battlefield Bad Company 2 ever since. I put the side cover back on the machine originally thinking it was over heating.
This is probably why I wasn't able to get the machine to overheat with all of the stress tests I had run with all the different types of software. Thanks again.
