Massive BSOD from OC

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello peeps

so i can no longer log into windows due to currupted drivers, with or without the OC. i gather this from the many BSOD's that i am getting. named, IRQL LESS THAN OR NOT EQUAL, 0x0A,0x08E, ftlmgr.sys. to name a few, a different one every time i try to log into windows.

i dont mind reformatting and trying again, but only if i do it right this time around. so what did i do wrong? why did data get corrupted?

i overclocked my processor to 3.4 with the voltage set to 1.4. i got here by simply typing in 1520 into the FSB zone and increasing voltage until it booted correctly. ran prime 95 to check for load temps and stability and after a few cycles of good temps i fired up 3dmark to see how much of a 3dmark score increase i got. 3dmark gave me great news and i went on to play games.

but those games had not improved, in fact, some were hurt by the OC and ran sluggishly, one even had some artifacts.

so i upped the voltage, this didnt work. the only thing that worked was to lower the OC back to stock. but i did this too late. because after lowering the OC back to stock and playing for a few minutes i began getting BSODed all day long. even when i try to put to OC back it does it.

so that was my process. please feel free to talk smack about me, i need to know what to do in the future.

I got the same problem. I RMA'd the RAM and it solved the problem for a while. I have recently got the problem again, and I can't express how annoyed I am. I am not sure what to RMA now...
