BSOD has become the story of my life.....

Hello and good day. Hopefully the attachment has the information you need. I have a bare bone computer that I put together in December. I have always had a problem with BSOD and some days like today they come more often. I do play WOW on it and tonight was one of the worst. I had 4 BSOD in a 15 minute period. All of tonight's were driver_irql_not_less_or_equal. They are not always the same and some do not say anything at all. Thank you for any help that you can provide me and have a good day.

Thank you!

Some other helpful things may be the motherboard, the exact power supply (make and model), and whether or not anything is overclocked.

Thermaltake TT-450NL2NK? Where did you get it? I can't find any information about it.

It could be the culprit. To see why I think so, please read this article:

On Thermaltake PSUs - Overclock.net

Even though NVIDIA is recommending a 400W power supply, low-quality PSUs are notorious for causing system instability like BSODs.

The power supply is 450W and came with the case. I live 20 minutes from Tiger Direct if you see a PSU that I should try and pick up there let me know.

Windows Update is Up To Date.

Thanks again.
