Ok i followed Asif's steps, of re seating the ram, custom installing the NVIDIA driver and changing the graphics clock to 650. Thanks for the tips ^^. Guess I'll just wait on the next BSOD haha

Do a Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 . Use either of the GPU.

Eternaltheft, I came here at the request of Arc, so if I ask about something thay has neen done already please excuse me. Unless Arc has some evidence or indications otherwise, I'm not convinced it is the Optimus Technology. Optimus just allows the computer to decide on which applications to use the on chip (CPU) graphics or the dedicated GPU. I have a laptop with Optimus and realy dislike it. I have, through the Nvidia control panel, changed it to use the dedicated graphics only. It has never caused me a problem except the battery life is shorter, which does not bother me personally, but is the whole idea of optimus, to give longer battery life. It is difficult to advise you on exactly what to do since your system specs say your laptop is self built. Most pre manufactured laptops, the manufacturer alters the drivers to work with the way they built the laptop to run. In some cases installing drivers from Nvidia, can cause problems. Personally, I think Arc is taking the right approach. A clean install of Windows is best. But, look at the windows updates as they come in. Don't install hardware updates that you already have the drivers for. Download the drivers from your motherboard's web site. But, do not install any programs for a few days. Let it run as as a clean install as long as you can. If you get along OK. Install 1 program at a time, and use the laptop for a while to make sure that program you installed is not the problem. Keep doing that untill you have your laptop set up the way you like it. If you do that, then if you have BSODs again, it will be the last program you installed. I am subscribed to this thread now, and will be here to assist you and Arc any way I can. I hope you don't mind.

Hi Essenbe, thanks for the suggestions . But I'm using a custom built desktop, not laptop so I don't really care about the battery :P. Do you think I should just run the dedicated video graphics only? Of course I don't mind, I really appreciate you taking the time to help me out, these BSOD are driving me insanse and I'm not much of a tech savvy person haha

Well, I have no idea how I got the impression that you had a self built laptop. I must be brain dead. Then, are you using LucidLogix? If you are, it can help some things but can also cause a lot of problems. If you have it on, I would disable it and just use the GTX 770.

I also hate to tell you this, but new technology takes time for the manufacturers to catch up with. I know I went through that with the Ivy Bridge and the Maximus V. I even RMA'd the board when the problem was that Asus had a bad bios that caused problems with the board. When they finally figured out what was wrong, they issued a new bios and problems solved. The same goes with other software manufacturers. You are not the only person who has problems with thay board. http://www.overclock.net/t/1409617/m...s-with-gtx-770. I don't know if it is a defect in the board or software. It would still be easier to try running it on a complete clean install to see if you have problems and slowly install 1 piece of software at a time and use it long enough to see if it is still stable. Then install another program and do the same.

Also, what version of the Nvidia driver are you using. Sometimes it can help to change to an older or newer driver.

Nope, I have no idea what LucidLogix is. But I have the Intel graphics.

I don't think I have as bad of a problem as the other person who was a GTX 770, my main problems are the BSOD.

I have NVIDIA Graphics Driver 320.49
