I changed my case and CPU from a HAF XM to a Corsair 500r and from a 3570k to 2500k (overclockability) now when ever i boot up, i get a blue screen of death and not once after i built it again did i close it from the task bar. Before this, I was encountering error messages saying that windows has a critical error and when i reinstalled windows 7, the BSODs started to happen. Does anybody have any solutions? I had my old case and cpu for a month and it worked fine and now it doesnt. I dont know how changing the case or cpu cant damage my ssd boot drive.

Your board may not function with the new cpu settings, especially if you are trying to overclock the 2500k. Have you tried the default bios settings with your 2500K?

I fixed it. It was my motherboard.
