Please can someone explain why i keep getting the bsod? I have enclosed some CPU-Z pics for everyone to look at as well.
Okay I think you are doing way too much at once, lets do one thing at a time.
I know your friend may have the same ram as you, but keep in mind it doesnt mean yours can oc the same. It gives you a idea, but dont expect the same results
Now just try and overclock the processor first, you want to keep your ram on a divider to keep from ocing it just yet (trust me this will save you alot of time, and headaches) once you get your CPU to a good OC then you can work with your ram.
Just look around in your bios your ram timings.
Okay so when you drop your ram speed down you should have some headroom for your CPU. try and test with your FSB @ 225 again, and if you fail you may need more vcore (keep a eye on temps) use coretemp, or everest to read your temps.
What stress tester are you using? If you have not download Orthos, and run a blend test for about 8 hours to test your overclocks, using games to stress test is not a good way to see if its stable or not.
Infact I am looking at your CPUz screenshots, how much ram do you have? are you using 4 gigs on a 32bit OS?
If you are that can also cause BSODs (I too am experiencing this, so I went back to 2 gigs until I get 64bit)
If not how many sticks of ram are you using?
Look in our downloads section
for the programs mentioned above.
