BSOD while playing BF3

earlier today and some of yesterday, i was trying some overclocking changes to my computer using the ASUS TurboV EVO software. when i was done, i reverted everything back to stock/normal in the mobo BIOS and decided to leave it like it is for now.

i've now been playing Battlefield 3 for 5 hours without incident and suddenly get a BSOD. i dont know how to read the dump files. if someone could tell me what caused it would help greatly!


system specs are up to date

One BSOD rule of thumb, is IGNORE it, unless it repeats.

I will look at your .DMP in just a second. :)

Probably bug in device driver, they happen.... ignore it for now unless it repeats.

APC_INDEX_MISMATCH error code 1 on watchdog.sys

This write up of it, I wouldn't put you through, for just one occurrence:

If it becomes a habit though, yeah the basics listed there, not the download.

oh! hahaha i've not heard that rule before. ok, well i just wanted someone to take a look at it since i was messing with overclocking stuff earlier. FYI, i did re-install my chipset drivers earlier today in an effort to fix a problem in another thread.

Did u get it from the manufacturer's website? Chipset drivers if wrong ones will lead to heaps of issues, aka. break the system faster than a sledgehammer.

Here's a fair explanation:

Yes, ignore one BSOD as anomaly/fluke, it will repeat if a real problem.

Overclocking will just actually BREAK components, not drivers.
