Like I said, BSODs and crashes seemingly only happen during gaming, usually 2-10 minutes into it. Even benchmarks can't force it to break. It's not a temp problem, the cards are usually around 48C, and the CPU is usually at 45ish. The game doesn't really matter, either. Borderlands 2, Civ 5, and Skyrim all end in reboot death. I'm using the Catalyst 12.11 driver. I've run memtest86+, no errors. CHKdsk yields nothing. I had the same problem a few months ago. The only solution was a clean reinstall of windows, and I would prefer to not have to do that again.

Event viewer logs:

**Crash One:** close proximity.

**Crash Two:** again, close proximity.

**Crash Three:**

Please, if this is the wrong place to put this, tell me where it should be.

And, in the case that it's useful, the past month's worth of crash codes. I can get the rest should it be necessary.

Looks like you're good here. If you've got the K-Lite codec pack installed, get rid of it and your problems should go away. Sounds like a classic case of that thing messing up when playing games.

Hope that helps.
