Windows 7: Various BSOD's while gaming, surfing, idling.

Hopefully this is the screenshot you were looking for.

I've opened up my case for the next little while, but is it necessary given my system temp is at 26deg?
I don't think it's poor ventilation. For the record I'm using a Cooler Master HAF 912, which is raved about for it's cooling and all fans/vents are cleaned weekly. Being as open as it is, it's quite susceptible to dust build up.

clgnt..

I know dust builds up when the case is open... i have only asked you do it till we sort this problem so as to get the temps down a bit... it wont do much difference but you would atleast get 1 to 2 deg reduction... thats all !!

Anyways.. moving on... it would be better you take screenshot of only the resmon ... as i can't see .... but if i squint my eye way too long ... i can make out that the CPU usage is at 0% but what really caught my eyes is the frequency... its running at 88% which shouldn't be unless you are overclocking and settings are not right...

since you have already updated the bios... check again to see if any overclocking settings have changed ....reset the bios settings to its defaults...

Will do that now.

I was using speedfan but I just didn't believe the CPU temps it was giving me so I downloaded a program I had used before, realtemp. It has my temp's sitting at mid/high 30's celcius while idling.

Went into BIOS and reset to default.

I'm sorry for my noobness, I'm not sure exactly what it is you want to see in the resmon (which I had to youtube to open).

You did mention that you changed the CPU power setting in bios that resolved the BSOD.... is it the same setting ??? did anything change in the past 2 weeks ??

I did not, but the blue screens have been pretty consistent since I started this thread. They were simply immediate upon booting after I changed the power settings.

My frequency is consistently over 100% when playing WoW. I'm no rocket surgeon, but that's probably not ideal. I have never messed with CPU settings...

Nothing as of yet, they usually occur every few hours.

Are there any programs which would stress test certain components and log what caused a crash? I know after doing my research after purchasing (dumb I know) many companies stress test for 72hours prior to shipping a newly built system. Apparently my builder failed to do that.
