Hey guys, as the title states, one of the builds I've done from 2010 has started to act up and I can't seem to figure out why. It has sufficient cooling and has never been OC'd.

CPU - i7 950
Motherboard - Gigabyte X58A-UD3R
Ram - 4 x 3 GB A-DATA DDR3-1600 ram CL9
HDD - Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB
GPU - GTS 250
PSU - Corsair TX 750W
Optical - Sony 22x DVD Burner
CPU Cooler - Thermalright Silver Arrow
Case - CoolerMaster HAF 932
OS - Windows 7 64 Professional from MSDN (only ever authenticated from this system)

I have looked around and it seems that 9c occurs when the system encounters an error when attempting to communicate with one of the components. The BSODs tend to happen at idle, with simple web browsing and word processing, never when gaming or p95.

Thus far, the system has BSOD twice today in a time span of 5 hours. Currently running Prime 95 blend to check for errors, all temps seem to be reasonable. Load voltage is also noted at 1.232v for stock speeds.
