Recently started getting BSOD

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So the past couple of days I have had BSOD twice. The last time it happened was just 10 minutes ago, weirdly it has happened when I've booted up TERA and Guild Wars 2 and both times I was only playing for 20 minutes. I overclocked my CPU (960T) to 3.8GHz about a couple of weeks ago and I've just bought a new mobo (Gigabyte 990XA UD3) I bought Corsair Vengeance 2x 4GB but it was running at 1333 so I upped it to 1600. What could it be? Maybe I need to up my voltage? currently at 1.4v. I ran a 6 hour stress test just after I OC'd and it was fine. I have played The Sims 3 and other games for about 3 or 4 hours straight a few times this passed week and I never got any blue screen. Any help would be appreciated.

TERA and GW2 are harder on your CPU than TS3 is, so therefore, you've got an unstable overclock. You could try taking your voltage up a little bit, but you may just want to back off 100-200mhz. wink.gif

Thanks, I'll up the voltage a bit to start with. If that fails then I'll lower the OC, thanks for you advice
