Windows 7: BSOD playing + streaming

I have not heard of that being a problem before. You could try disabling it to test and see if it makes a difference in stability and also in performance.

Ok so I figured out something. I still don't have my MoBo, but I tried to erase ALL OVERCLOCKING (even the default one as TUrbo Boost) and from that moment not a single BSOD had appeared. My CPU is now at 3,4GHz, no turbo boost, and it is fine. But ! Why other ppl with the same CPU as me can have like 4,5 or so ? Why the DEFAULT SETTINGS as TURBO BOOST (automaticly changes from 3,4 to 3,8) does not work? I dont understand... I want to fix this.

Turbo boost overclocks the hardware. Overclocking increases the chances of instability. Your system is designed to overclock for brief periods through the turbo boost feature, so it should still be stable, which suggests there is something not working right with your hardware. You may have a faulty CPU, faulty motherboard, or conflicting hardware. Often, the reason overclocking does not work is the RAM configuration is not able to keep up with the overclock. Overheating can also be an issue.


Do the following hardware tests:
  • Monitor temperatures during the following tests.
    Use the following programs to monitor the temperatures.
  • Run the boot version of Memtest86+ paying close attention to Parts 2 and 3 of the tutorial. Also, in case Memtest86+ misses anything and comes up with no errors, run the extended version of the Windows Memory Diagnostics Tool for at least five passes. These you may want to run overnight since they take a long time to complete (run them an hour before bed each of the next two nights and check before going to sleep that they are still running).

    If you swap any memory components, follow these steps for ESD safety:
    1. Shut down and turn off your computer.
    2. Unplug all power supplies to the computer (AC Power then battery for laptops, AC power for desktops)
    3. Hold down the power button for 30 seconds to close the circuit and ensure all power drains from components.
    4. Make sure you are grounded by using proper grounding techniques, i.e. work on an anti-static workbench, anti-static desk, or an anti-static pad. Hold something metallic while touching it to the anti-static surface, or use an anti-static wristband to attach to the anti-static material while working.
    Once these steps have been followed, it is safe to remove and replace components within your computer.

One quick question, should I run these tests with Turbo Boost on or off?

Since you are trying to determine whether Turbo Boost is the cause, I suggest running an experiment. The control set would be with it off and see if the tests cause crashes and what temperatures things run at. Then turn it on, and see if the tests cause different temperature behavior and/or crashes.

For memtest86+, you cannot measure temperature, so just see if any errors crop up with turbo boost on or off (it really should not make a difference).
