Windows 7: 8-Core, overclocked machine slow...

8-Core, overclocked machine slow...

In late July, I built what I thought would be a POWERHOUSE of a machine for our living room family computer. 8-Cores running at 4.139 Ghz, 16 Gigs of RAM [4 Gigs set up as a RamDrive to reduce wear of 120 Gig SSD]

My daughter plays a flash game on it, and it's SO CHOPPY! It is actually spending more time frozen than animating! Outside of one of those system test programs, I've never had even 4 cores maxed, let alone 8.

I know Microsoft has not written good drivers for it, so I do take that into some considerations, but this thing should fly even if only using a single core.

Is the flash game online? Have you installed the latest graphics drivers and flash versions as suggested by OldMX, have you considered updating to the latest chipset drivers?

One of the games my daughters try to play [and it acted up] is Cosmic Crush. My youngest spends a lot of time on MostFunGames.Com.

I've done all the updates. Although, I think there was a flash update on yesterday's reboot [from a BSOD]

OK. I attached the dump from my last BSOD.

I don't know if it makes a difference, but this machine does not get shut down very often. It sleeps after 20 minutes, so it hasn't been powered down for an hour since it was put together.

After the BSOD, I did check for updates, and there were two that I added.

Both of the BSODs are pointing to:

STOP 0x00000050: PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA

Code:
Usual causes:  Defective hardware (particularly memory - but not just RAM), Faulty system service, Antivirus,  Device driver, NTFS corruption, BIOS
The BSOD probably caused line pointed to:

Driver Reference Table - win32k.sys

Code:
Probably caused by : win32k.sys ( win32k!MulDeleteDeviceOrRedirectionBitmap+21 )
Code:
Image path: win32k.sys
    Image name: win32k.sys

I don't think the Windows driver is the problem, I would suggest running these two programs:

Just started the Memtest. A few details:

I think this is a bad sign...

Looking over it, it says 58 errors. I'm thinking about uploading a pic of the screen, but I want to let it run before [SHOULD I?] I do [IF I do]
