Well lets make this fast. I got my rig computer on boxing day and put linux on it, oc'ed to 4ghz and it was fine, put windows 7 home premium on it last weekend and, when ever i run prime 95 v27.7 it crashes with in 2-5 seconds of starting. So now that you know whats going on lets go over the technical stuff. First it is not a cpu problem to my knowledge because linux is unaffected. second its not a temp problem because at idle im at 38c so i have a good amount of head room. last, heres a cpu-z.

thanks for any help you can give.

Overclock is unstable.

Redo your O.C. or leave at stock speeds.

linux =/= windows lol

Also, you could also have something corrupt on your OS.

Run sfc /scannow and see if it repairs any system issues.

do this, then incrementally up voltage till stable and within temps. these chips can hold close if not 1.5v.

I've actually found Linux to be very sensitive to overclocking, especially memory overclocking. No clue why, but anyway

I like Sean's idea, but if you save your OC to a profile and set everything to auto/stock does windows still have such instabilities? Do you do anything intensive in Linux such as MPrime (Linux's Prime95)?
