I'll say you have few. What does HWinfo show for the voltages? Your 5 and 12 volt lines are not usable at the levels shown in CPUID.

BugCheck 101
CLOCK_WATCHDOG_TIMEOUT (101)
An expected clock interrupt was not received on a secondary processor in an
MP system within the allocated interval. This indicates that the specified
processor is hung and not processing interrupts.

BugCheck A, {0, 2, 1, fffff80002b71786}
Memory Corruption

BugCheck 24, {1904fb, fffff880084264c8, fffff88008425d20, fffff80001ee4967}
Probably caused by : Ntfs.sys ( Ntfs!NtfsNonCachedIo+23f )
Memory Corruption

BugCheck C4
DRIVER_VERIFIER_DETECTED_VIOLATION (c4)
A device driver attempting to corrupt the system has been caught. This is
because the driver was specified in the registry as being suspect (by the
administrator) and the kernel has enabled substantial checking of this driver.
If the driver attempts to corrupt the system, bugchecks 0xC4, 0xC1 and 0xA will
be among the most commonly seen crashes.
Arguments:
Arg1: 0000000000000091, A driver switched stacks using a method that is not supported by
the operating system. The only supported way to extend a kernel
mode stack is by using KeExpandKernelStackAndCallout.
Arg2: 0000000000000000
Arg3: fffffa8008aa3b60
Arg4: 0000000000000000
DEFAULT_BUCKET_ID: CODE_CORRUPTION
PROCESS_NAME: chrome.exe

BugCheck 3B
SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION (3b)
An exception happened while executing a system service routine.
Memory Corruption

Well I'm not sure what I should do now, I ran malwarebytes overnight, it found a couple game hacks that I have used for years and not had problems with but I removed them anyway.

Its so weird that I get a different BSOD every single time, I've only once gotten a 2nd one of the same type. I got a bunch more last night including a error 124 so I'm uploading my dump files again to see if they help.

All of this only seems to happen with my new CPU installed, because when I put my old CPU in the computer runs fine with the exception of the same hardware BSODs that I started the thread for.

BIOS voltages do look within specs, but I still wonder... Can you try borrowing a friend/colleague's PSU and swapping yours out with it? That would at least give an indication of whether the PSU is the problem or not. Try to get one as close to the 550 W you use.

I wonder about the PSU because PSU failures can result in very erratic behavior of the system, so it would not be too surprising for your crashes to be across the board.

I'll see if I can find someone to borrow a PSU from, but it seems a bit strange if it were the PSU that it would work fine with the old CPU and not with the new, considering that they are both the same wattage I believe.

If you are getting 0x124 crashes with the other processor, but less frequently, that can still be due to a bad PSU. Frequency can change due to varying factors.


Speaking with a hardware specialist: James7679, it looks more like the motherboard is not working right. You still have a 20% overclock on the system. That may mean switching off your two MSI switches on the board did not accomplish lowering the overclock. Have you tried clearing the CMOS? How to clear the CMOS.

Your RAM also may not be fully supported by your processor. You have an older processor, and XMP RAM is designed for Intel processors and the newer AMD processors. System Building and Compatibility

Ok I will try clearing my CMOS manually because I've done the reset in the bios before. How can you tell it's overclocked? because it says I am running at 3.0ghz and that's what this processor is supposed to be running at. I'm still trying to find another PSU I can try instead of this one.

In CPU-Z under CPU, the bus speed should be 200.0 MHz; yours is set at 240.0 MHz, which is what I would expect with the 20% switches enabled for the MSI board. That is why I wonder if it did not reset properly. I would also advise that you take a closer look at the manual and be double sure your removed the overclock due to the switches.

Further Reading: MSI Switches.

Thanks to essenbe for the info regarding the MSI switch and the bus speed.

Wow, yeah, thanks, I had it backwards and the OC switches were on, I'm just running some tests now to see if I can get it to BSOD the way it is now. The bus speed is back to 200MHz and it already seems much harder to crash.

Good news! Let us know if you determine whether that resolves it completely or not.

Well it hasn't crashed yet so I want to thank you all soo much for the help, I would never have gotten it figured out on my own. I'll post back if I have any more issues.
