BSOD during games at 120hz

Newly built computer, specs are:

-EVGA GeForce GTX 560Ti DS Superclockerd 1024MB
-Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-2600K CPU @ 3.40GHz clocked @4.6ghz (I think anyway lol, i bought it superclocked to 4.6)
-ASUSTeK Computer INC. P8P67 PRO REV 3.1
-8gb RAM DDR3

been playing games with my monitor at 60hz and its more stable, but i want to use the 120hz. Test graphics card with furmark, no problems, yet to run memtest over night but it passed the first test.
Games it bsod in were Orcs Must Die and Team Fortress 2, not very demanding games.

Thank you in advance if you can help me!

No DMP files included in upload please try this method


We do need the DMP file as it contains the only record of the sequence of events leading up to the crash, what drivers were loaded, and what was responsible.

You may be able to get the DMP files without crashing by booting into safe mode (F8) with networking.

To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.

The procedure:

* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.
*If the files are too large please upload them to a file sharing service like "Rapidshare" and put a link to them in your reply.


To ensure minidumps are enabled:

* Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
* Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
* Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
* Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
* Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
* OK your way out.
* Reboot if changes have been made.

Thanks for the reply, but my minidump folder is empty. Hadn't replied to this in a while sorry I thought it fixed itself since it hadnt happened in a while, so recently turned monitor back to 120hz and pc just turned off again now, (no blue screen) and i have automatic restart turned off. Is this a power problem? How can I check this!
