The motherboard you got is an Asus P8P67, right? You're telling me you can't adjust frequencies on that motherboard?
Ram and cpu ya, it appear i can also change the frequency of the pci-e if i set ai overclock tuner to manual, but no voltage.

Well, try to do the PCI-E clock set at 100 or 101 thing. In the meantime, did you download a Linux distro to check if you can reproduce the same issue under Linux?

Edit : Hmm, I advised you to use Xubuntu earlier, but I think it'd be better if you could have the proprietary drivers from the get go, so it's better if you try Manjaro. If you need help regarding that, you can send me a private message.

So far using EVGA precision X to up my voltage from 9067 to 1050 has worked and caused no crash, I haven't gamed too much but seems good, I'll keep you updated if this crash again.

Err, that wasn't what I suggested, but it does sound like you've found a potential solution.

P.S. : When you say "9067" and "1050", do you mean 0.9067 and 1.050 V?

Quite technical here, manual voltage config via BIOS? *ScaredStiffFace

So, I'm googling, as I'm having this issue with ntunecmd's error-generating DLL. It's the future now (2014) , but NVID and Microsoft still reign as supreme and suck as hard as ever.

So outta the proverbial pan into the figurative fire...

BUMPING this issue, reported today with NVIDIA support (ref #620954)

(error event screenshot: http://i.imgur.com/JBEYEbA.png)

Activation context generation failed for "C:\Program Files (x86)\NVIDIA Corporation\nTune\MFC80.DLL".

Can anyone see any issues with the manifest?

MAYBE it's this DLL doesn't have error-free-x64-compatabilty...

Maybe it's a DLL conflict thing (multiple entries for the offending Library "msvcr80.dll")

Opened ntunecmd.exe with Dependency Walker, first issue was missing module (ieshims.dll - some IE crap). fixed by copying the still resident ieshims.dll from program files x86\internet explore to nvidia corp's\ntune folder. next issue
