Hi I've been having problems with the BSOD with code: 2057 of late, and as such posted this in the relevant board, where it was suggested that it may be a hardware problem (overheating).

I had overheating issues previously with my CPU (Prescott) after which I replaced the heatsink with a CNPS9500, and also attached a DBB Antec Tricool fan to the back of the case. Could this still be an overheating issue?

Kind regards,
