Windows 7: BSOD 0x000001E and random freezing W7 Ultimate x64

BSOD 0x000001E and random freezing W7 Ultimate x64

Hey all,

I've been getting random 0x1E BSODs as well as random freezes ever since I built my computer. I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate x64 retail. I've tried everything I could find and haven't found a solution so far. Hopefully someone can figure out what's wrong from the dmp files I've attached.

Some more information:

New build
i7 2600k Processor
MSI GD-53 Mainboard
MSI GTX-580 Lightning Graphics card
Crucial M4 128GB SSD
8GB Corsair RAM
750w Corsair PSU

Things I've tried:

Reinstalled Windows
Ran Memtest86 (no errors)
Increased CPU and DRAM Voltages
Updated BIOS
Updated all drivers
Tried older graphics card drivers
Monitored CPU temps (Ide~30, Load~60)
Monitored GPU temps (Idle~32, Load~65)
Tried everything with a different HD (Crucial C300 128GB SSD)

I read somewhere that MSE can cause stability issues on W7 x64 systems. Does anyone else have any information on this?

Any help is appreciated.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

Thanks for the quick reply. I already suspected the CPU but just wanted to make sure that the problems weren't being caused by some other drivers before going back into the BIOS to fiddle with the settings.

I've fixed the problem and seem to be stable running Prime95 for 8+ hours. This is what I did in the BIOS:

Bumped the VCORE up a few notches. Temps are a bit higher (~65c under Load) but still within safe ranges. This fixed the 0x000001E BSODs.

Changed the voltage of the RAM. By default this was set to auto which automatically applied a voltage of 1.45v. My RAM is rated at 1.5v so I bumped the voltage up to about 1.55v which completely fixed my freezing/locking up problem.
