Windows 7: Random BSOD when overclocking but could it have been my GPU/Bluetooth?

Random BSOD when overclocking but could it have been my GPU/Bluetooth?

I'm not sure if this is the particular place to be asking about it, but maybe it's something you guys may know. I wanted to get the most out of Dolphin so for Christmas I got a new CPU, motherboard, and fan for overclocking, and out of the gate it works well. It's just some more demanding titles, particularly Wii titles, that had mild issues. Assuming this had to do with the fact I was running my i5-3570k @ 3.80 GHz, I OC'd it to 4.40 GHz and it seemed my issues went away. However, when trying Donkey Kong Country Returns, I received a BSOD. The issue however is what I'm concerned about. It could be overclocking, but it could also have been my bluetooth drivers, or even my Nvidia settings. Originally I turned off the dongle to disable the Wii remote, and it didn't fully turn off. I reset the Wiimote after that error message, so I'm unsure if it was the driver that caused the poof because the Wiimote still worked, or if it was the OC I did. I'll post the issue listed in WhoCrashed, as well as my settings at the time of the crash, in case it could be deduced if it was the driver, the OCing, or something else.

crash dump file: C:\Windows\Minidump\122712-19125-01.dmp
This was probably caused by the following module: ntoskrnl.exe (nt+0x7EFC0)

The crash took place in the Windows kernel. Possibly this problem is caused by another driver which cannot be identified at this time.


On Thu 12/27/2012 10:55:14 PM GMT your computer crashed
crash dump file: C:\Windows\memory.dmp
This was probably caused by the following module: nvlddmkm.sys (nvlddmkm+0x1D9F39)
Bugcheck code: 0x3D (0xFFFFF88002F1A530, 0x0, 0x0, 0xFFFFF8000469E6D6)
Error: INTERRUPT_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED
file path: C:\Windows\system32\drivers\nvlddmkm.sys
product: NVIDIA Windows Kernel Mode Driver, Version 306.97
company: NVIDIA Corporation
description: NVIDIA Windows Kernel Mode Driver, Version 306.97
Bug check description: This bug check appears very infrequently.
A third party driver was identified as the probable root cause of this system error. It is suggested you look for an update for the following driver: nvlddmkm.sys (NVIDIA Windows Kernel Mode Driver, Version 306.97 , NVIDIA Corporation).
Google query: nvlddmkm.sys NVIDIA Corporation INTERRUPT_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED

My settings at the time of the crash:
Motherboard: MSI Z77A-G43 LGA 1155 Intel Z77
CPU: Intel Core i5-3570K Ivy Bridge 4.4GHz
CPU Fan: COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 EVO
GPU: NVIDIA GTX 580
PSU: Antec EarthWatts EA-650 GREEN 650W
RAM: 16 GB

My Nvidia settings were set to override programs, and I figure the fact Nvidia was listed may have been a potential reason for that? I'm a little lost here, but I want to figure out what exactly went wrong, as I don't want to dare risk it if it is in fact the OCing stuff.

If you want the crash looked at we need the actual dump file to look at, have a read of this

although it will probably be hard to tell if your OCing at the same time, my advice would be to not OC and see if you get any problems (especially on a new system) then try OCing when you have verified you have a stable system
