Hello all,

 

I am getting this BSOD when the CPU gets stressed in certain ways. When I run HeavyLoad and select CPU stress, I get it within a few seconds. However, I downloaded the Intel Processor Diagnostic Tool and it says everything passed with the CPU. I tried memtest86+ and memory passed.

 

I've tried reinstalling windows and it came back after a couple of days. I suspected the USB ports on the motherboard because the drivers weren't installing correctly, so I disabled those and uninstalled the drivers.

 

Any help would be appreciated.

 

Windows 10

Asus P9X79 board

Intel® Core™ i7-3820 CPU @ 3.60GHz

Well, I tried shutting off the overclocking in the BIOS and it looks like I am not having the problem now. But I have run with OC for five years now with this system, why all of a sudden would this be an issue?

Overclocking stresses the system.  Over time this stress accumulates and the system is less able to handle the stress.  Over the long run, a severe overclock can actually cause components in the system to fail completely.

I would suggest starting out at stock values and overclocking a small bit at a time until the system becomes unstable.

Then back off on the overclock a step at a time until you achieve long term stability.

Thanks. I guess the system has probably been "worn out" from years of overclocking. I will probably just run it at stock specs until replacement time.
