I'm not aware of any overclocks on my PC. I will check my BIOS but I'm sure it's just on its standard setting. Can I adjust it manually in my BIOS? Thanks for your quick reply.

BSOD keeps happening.

I keep getting BSOD. It says many different things at any one time. I've not added any hardware recently. My BIOS is the most up to date it can be. I re-installed Windows 7. Please tell my processor isn't done for. I've attached my file below for the geniuses here to peruse. HELP and Thanks.

Hello jaymo1978.
It appears that you havent taken the suggestion given by YoYo155 in BSOD A clock interrupt was not received on the secondary processor
Code:
CPUID:        "Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-3820 CPU @ 3.60GHz"
MaxSpeed:     3600
CurrentSpeed: 4549
As you are getting BSODs, you should stop overclocking and run all the hardware components like CPU, GPU and RAM to their default settings. Also set the BIOS to default, too.

And, requesting the mods to merge it with your earlier thread. Continue there. Please dont create multiple threads for a single issue.

I actually reset all my BIOS defaults. I will try again. It stopped happening for a while unsure if there's something that automatically over clocks my processor. I think it might be something to do with my graphics card. It seems to run very hot.

After resetting the BIOS to defaults, answer two more questions please.

Check if the Power Supply Unit (PSU) supplying adequate power to the computer or not.
eXtreme Power Supply Calculator
Also let us know about the wattage of the PSU.

Report us the heat of the computer after a couple of hours of your normal usage. Upload a screenshot of the summery tab of Speccy.

Apologies for the separate thread before. I'm new to all this. I have reset my BIOS as directed and reset my motherboard to all defaults and i have updated the BIOS to the most current version. I have attached a Speccy screenshot. I did the power calculator and im only using about 300w power and my PSU is a Corsair TX650w so is more than capable. Anymore suggestions would be greatly helpful. No BSOD as yet..........
