KMODE error ... generic
Outside of stock speeds (where this PC runs flawlessly, idling at 21-22C), the PC-- at any memory/CPU overclock setting in BIOS -- is unable to remain stable when the PC returns to Windows.
I've followed a number of guides for what settings to apply for different overclocking speeds in BIOS. None of them hold, the result being a KMODE error.
The BSOD that pops up is "KMODE_Exception_Not_Handled", but there isn't any error specifically addressed, as if it is just some generic error.
I installed a new mobo battery (as this mobo was new but on a shelf since release, currently at BIOS version 0403) and have my memory setting in BIOS on XMP but have left all other settings untouched.
I did a Safe Mode restart, to see if there was a driver in need of updating in the Device Manager. Nothing comes up that needs to be addressed. I've also disabled Fast Startup.
What am I missing?
