Windows 7: BSOD playing WoW - happens occasionally

I know that this took awhile to do but I have still been blue screening with that direct x error..

I ran the Prime 95 test for 3 minutes and had no errors BUT my CPU temps were getting way to high. Around 70Degrees for the individual cores. I'm going to attempt to reseat it with some new thermal paste (this processor has never been reseated and it's 5 years old) so I will try running the test again after this!

Just reseated the processor and running the Prime 95 Test again (FFT's portion -- that's what I ran before as well)

Currently my temperatures are about max of 67 degrees celsius at like 5minutes in. It really isn't climbing much higher than that -- very slowly if anything. SO YES it is a lot better but still hot. I don't know if this could cause the Directx BSOD when i'm intense gaming/multitasking but it does seem like a slight issue... I will run the rest of the prime 95 tests and the other ones you mentioned..

9 Minutes in, 0 Errors, 0 warnings - I'm stopping it because I hit 69 Degrees Celsius on one of my cores and I am going out for the night so I don't want to leave it on without me here.

Definitely a significant increase in performance after reseating the processor. I hope this solves my BSOD issue but like I said before, I will run the other tests.

LOL here... look at the 5 years of amazingness

When you re-seated, did you re-apply the thermal paste? Did you remove the old paste first? If not, you may want to get the equipment to do so and look at Thermal Paste and How To Use It | techPowerUp

Yes, yes I did. I used Arctic Silver 5.

Alright, let us know how things are responding in a few days. Looks like you did everything right, and it did sound like you had improved stability, so we just need to monitor and wait for a bit.
