if AMDPPM was really the culprit, should i just continue to use processor.sys, or is there a better alternative to amdppm.sys i could use?
I am unsure regarding an alternative but my view is if it is working let it be.

unfortunately, i had a BSOD this morning, but it was only one, not a major cluster like usual... said NTOSKRNL was the culprit... but im going to wait to see if it happens again so ill have more new data to post here

i took my computer apart.. its clear to me this is hardware related since it will sometimes freeze before the BIOS screen disappears, and sometimes before it even appears...

my first impression is its heat related because after an hour or two of crashes in the morning it stops

i took my computer apart.. the filter was blocked pretty bad, and this PC didnt have a case fan....

so, i punched some holes in the exhause vent and fitted a PC case fan behind the filter which positions itself directly over the CPU fan as well, so now i have the CPU fan and this much larger fan both cooling this thing down... we'll see what happens now

its been 3 days since the installation of the bigger fan.. no crashes as of yet, id like to consider this a success, and hope that anyone with a similar problem will find this forum, with an air-restricting slim case like mine so theyll know what to do
