    Thanks for your thought on the CPUs. My temps with the H60 are super low. At idle its 28c and during the few games I tried to start it'd barely hit 55c. My gpu idles at 51c. After my vanilla I stall I only have MSE (Microsoft security essentials) running. I have ccleaner installed and 2 temp monitor apps. I still haven't installed my ssd, need another sata cable. But I want to install it with a clean version of windows and then install everything one at a time. (apps and updates)

    However, I'm reluctant to do all that if rePlacing the CPU is gonna fix it.

    so lasr night after 6 hrs without a bsod, i decided to try gaming. i played about 2 hrs no trouble then my keyboard just quit working. Batteries didnt help, so i stopped for the night.

    i was excited i got to do anything for that long. i did monitor my cpu temps, the gpu hit 90% while gaming with temps right at 70c. the cpu ran at 50c.

    then this morning wanted to try again, BSoD! (while searching google for keyboards) So heres the dump. i just want to rule out anything other than the cpu.

    So, you should go for the Prime95 test, I think!

    An afterthought here. MSI boards aren't the sharpest tool in the shed and if it has a malfunctioning socket or chipset, it could appear the CPU is bad.
    Unfortunately the only way to test is swapping hardware.

    Here's the results of my test. I let it run 3 hrs. Core temps maxed at 49c

    What mobo's do you recommend?

    So, CPU can take the stress, and not causing the crashes.

    Test the GFX card, too?
    Video Card - Stress Test with Furmark

    Sorry, but for stop 124, it is the only way to troubleshoot, to identify what part of hardware is causing the trouble.

    i ran the test for 15 min, but i don't know where it logged the data to??
    Everything seemed fine. No artifacts. temps leveled out at 83c at 1:30.

    this was the test i just ran last week.

    So, we've essential ruled out by testing cpu, gfx, and the memory, multiple times now for 3 weeks. I'm left to say the mobo is bad and that will be my next purchase. Again I'm hoping for bang for buck and don't wanna spend more than $100, but I want room for improvement.

    Any suggestions?
