Windows 7: BSOD with normal usage DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

06 Oct 2011   #11

Win 7 64bit Ultimate

First of all, your temps are relatively high. I recently built a rig with an 95W athlon II and it's prime stable at 37-40C. That sounds like a poor thermal interface, ie bad thermal compound or too much thermal grease. Your VGA temps are also relatively high, that card should not get close to 90C. At that high of a temperature you're going to burn out your VRMs.

Given that it crashes when running prime, it could be CPU voltage, CPU-NB voltage(IMC), or your ram voltage/timings.

Set CPU voltage to 1.25 V
CPU-NB to 1.175 V - 1.25 V
DRAM voltage to 1.55 V
DRAM timings should match the spd tab in cpu-z

BSOD in normal usage, error 0x0000008E
This is the second BSOD I get this week, but isn't the same error code, the other one was 0x000000D1. My specs: Windows 7 Professional x86 (32-bit) retail - the original installed OS on the system? NO, it's a clonic PC so it came without any OS into it.
