Windows 7: BSOD and freezes while playing game, error 0x00000101

That appears to be a sensor malfunction. I would be very surprised if that were the actual temperature with your CPU being as low as it is. You could open the system up and see if the board feels that hot to you. It could be a bad NB fan or the NB heat is not being properly dissipated. If you have an NB fan, check that it is working properly and installed properly. Make sure you Avoid Static Damage to Your PC while checking the temperatures by hand and/or checking the NB fan, and be careful not to burn yourself or shock yourself. You should try to check temperatures when the system is off, unplugged, and has had the power drained by closing the circuit for 30 seconds through holding down the power button with all power sources removed (AC adapter, batteries, etc.).

The temps of that screenshot was before I start the stress test, but I haven't reach any of the hardware max temp while running the tests.

- Ran FurMark for 15 minutes, GPU temp stable between 73-76c
- Ran VMT, no errors after 12 passes
- Ran MemTest for 6 hours straight, 5 passes, no error

Also, I can't boot into normal windows because startup repair showed up after memtest (IDK what happened or what's the error because I was AFK), but after I removed the memtest boot USB somehow i can log into windows. Wonder what was the cause...]

Had another BSOD just now after playing 15 minutes of AvA game. Still with stop 0x101.

Running Prime95 atm, will update the result ASAP

Yes, it's warm but it didn't feel like anything close to 90c. Speccy and HWinfo now saying that my motherboard temp is 30c... weird...

EDIT: Ran Prime95 for 1 hour (because i have work to do involving the pc) - no errors
Done a clean (formatted all of my partitions) REINSTALL again of the OS, STILL had BSOD. So it is hardware problem? I'll contact my vendor ASAP to have replacements... And we'll see how things goes after that

It is most likely hardware. Let us know how the replacements go. Best of luck!

Hey guys, been out of town last 2 days.
Got the replacements from my vendor, turns out my motherboard was defect.
Switched to P8Z68-V, no BSOD or TDR whatsoever.
Had a hunch from the start that it was the motherboard that is acting up.

Thank you so much for your support writhziden, I really appreciate it.
