Windows 7: Freezing/BSOD Randomly, Different Error Codes

The case specs show it as being 8.1" wide. The 212 I believe is 6" tall, and should fit (just a guess). But, if you bought a K series CPU and a Z77 board, it appears you intend on overclocking. If that is the case, you will need something much better than the stock cooler. That being said, the stock cooler should be doing a better job than the temps I saw, unless you are overclocked now. Whatever you decide to use, I would also invest in additional case fans. Decent case fans are pretty cheap, and will add fresh, cooler air to whatever cooler you use. But, if the 212 will fit, it is the best cooler you can use in it's price range. There are better coolers, but at a much higher price. And unless you plan on very high overclocks, the 212 will do the job. Most any decent aftermarket cooler will be better and quieter than the stock Intel cooler.

Whichever cooler you choose, make sure it will fit over your ram.

I think the Hyper EVO should fit your case. The cooler is 6.25" tall and subtracting 1" to allow for the space from the side panel and board stand offs you still have about 3/4" to play with. You can measure from the top of your CPU to the side panel to make sure.

If you get the Hyper EVO I would recommend getting 2 PWM fans for it and another 120MM fan for your side panel to bring in cool air if space allows.

Okay I was going between the EVO and this Newegg.com - COOLER MASTER Seidon 120M RL-S12M-24PK-R1 Water Cooler any thoughts on water cooling vs. air?

I have 3 case fans, two in front and one on top. Since my mobo only has 4 fans slots (1 CPU, 3 case fans) I won't be able to attach any more fans unless there's a way to multiple the plugs.

I personally don't think water belongs inside a PC, but many people here use the closed loop systems or have built their own.

Some fans come with an adapter so it will plug into a Molex (large 4 pin) connector. There are splitters to run two fans from one fan header but they may cause too much current draw from it.

I'm not sure what you had to go through previously, but from the first crash to the last it does seem to be very consistent, with WHEA errors reported by your CPU that it has suffered an internal timer error. There's the offchance that the BIOS or motherboard software can cause this. Update the BIOS if you haven't already, update all your mobo drivers, and uninstall all software that came with your motherboard. This includes 'enhancement' software, OC/tuning utilities, monitoring utilities, etc. Anything that does not involve getting your components on your mobo to work should be eliminated. You may need Driver Sweeper (a free app) to take care of that completely. Also, your last option is to reset BIOS settings to Safe/Normal defaults to ensure you don't have BIOS settings inadvertently OCing your system.

If none of that appears to work, then you have a bad CPU. Best replace the fella.

I updated my BIOS, it still froze on me. I just uninstalled the software that came with the Mobo so I'll try that and hopefully that works. If not I guess I'll get in touch with intel if you think it's a CPU problem rather than a GPU problem.

Again, you'll wanna confirm the software is completely uninstalled using Driver Sweeper. Mobo software uninstallers are often broken and leave behind the actual drivers, which ends up still getting loaded at Windows startup and still bugging things out. You can also confirm they're gone by eyeballing the drivers that load at startup with Autoruns. Unchecking an entry will disable that entry, and deleting it will, well, delete it. Check drivers and services list.

Okay Driver Sweeper shows that there are no Drivers installed and I got rid of all of the Autoruns on my motherboard.

Unless you bought the CPU straight from Intel, btw, I'm not sure they'll be able to help you as you are an end user. You may have better chances getting a replacement via the vendor that you used to purchase it. Has the system been unstable since you removed the mobo software?
