Running on vista 32bit SP1. What's going on here?
Are you OCing anything?
Just the CPU.. E7200 from 2.5Ghz to 3.8Ghz. Memory not OCed
The BSOD comes randomly, most of the time when I'm playing a game. I could be playing for hours without a problem, then it comes..
try increasing the CPU's voltage
Also, how are your temps?
happens when you not OC ?
could be this-
The CLOCK_WATCHDOG_TIMEOUT bug check has a value of 0x00000101. This indicates that an expected clock interrupt on a secondary processor, in a multi-processor system, was not received within the allocated interval
I agree on the more vcore,whats it at now?
When you play, are you assigning the games to only one core in taskmanager?
Nope.. I don't mess with such settings (are there even?) hehe.
Vcore @ 1.36ishv from default 1.1ish
The games don't even stress the CPU as much as orthos.. really strange.
Room temperature about 30c
Temps are 40-70c on load, but normal gaming usage max is around 60c. (measured with realtemp)
I'll up the voltage 1 notch, but it will take me a few days to a week to find out if it solves the problem..
Are they the Core temps or the CPU temp?
i get the feeling your CPU is overheating so causing the BSOD
From what uncleweb has shown, I doubt the CPU is overheating, they can withstand temps over 100*C! Altho I will admit in the 60's is most stable!
its possibly the actual os fault or maybe a faulty motherboard liek the cpu socket could be broke
"Core temperature" according to realtemp.
I don't think it's overheating, cus I run orthos/occt on a hot afternoon (30c) for a few hours and not get BSOD, and yesterday I was playing GRID with the airconditioning on (about 25c) when the BSOD happened.
I'll update you guys in a week if it happens again with the new voltage of 1.37v
Edit: My computer froze after playing devil may cry 4 with 1.37v.. I'm sticking to 1.36v for CPU and increased the NB voltage by a notch.. to 1.47v
Bump, I think the problem is solved.
I disabled EIST (and had to use 9x instead of 9.5 multiplier, resulting in 3.6Ghz), lowered the cpu volts to 1.3v because the lower clocked allowed me to, and I have not gotten random BSODs since. Even tested with my games, and when I slept, OCCT for 9 hours.
Temps dropped to 40c to 64c too. =D
