Windows 7: Setting BIOS correctly as crashes with CPU load

Setting BIOS correctly as crashes with CPU load

Components are...
MB: GB P55A-UD4P
CPU: i5-750
RAM: Kingston DDR3-2000 4GB
GPU: GB GTX260 OC
PSU: Enermax Infiniti 650w

I currently can run my Windows 7 system ok, but when I get up around 75% CPU, it crashes and turns off. I am guessing I need to configure the BIOS? Possibly make the CPU faster to keep up with the RAM???

When I enable XMP, it sets the CPU to 2.8ghz.

Any ideas?

Sounds more like a over heating problem.

No, it turns off, soon after I have logged in. I go straight into the BIOS and it says the CPU is 47 deg-c. 116 farenheight.

Have you overclocked anything? If so, reset the BIOS to its defaults.

I have reduced RAM timings from 999 to 777 and increased CPU to 3.15Ghz and reduced RAM speed to 1500. No faults yet for the last 24 hours. But I wouldn't mind getting the RAM up to scratch I guess I just have to play around with it.

Set the DRAM voltage to 1.6v.

Timings should be 9-9-9-27.

I think I might be inclined to actually test those settings with a good stablity program like Prime 95. Guessing at settings can be fun but hardly ever results in a stable system.
