Windows 7: BSOD Ntoskrnl.exe

Kenlee, I agree with your assessment that you simply had an unstable overclock. That is assuming that when you ran Prime95 that no cores shut down on you. The reason your CPU speed went to 3.8 during Prime is your CPU has a stock speed of 3.4 and a Turbo speed of 3.8. What that means is normal usage, your CPU will run at 3.4, but when stress is put on the CPU it will ramp up to 3.8. It was designed that way. When you overclock it, you are actually only overclocking the Turbo speed, unless you have disabled it in BIOS, which I don't recommend. At idle, it should drop down to 1.6 GHz and the Vcore should drop to 1.0V roughly. That is assuming you are using offset voltage in NIOS. If you have it set to Manual , the CPU will still drop to 1.6V at idle but the Vcore will not drop. That, to me, is a waste. If you are simply reading email and working on a Word document for example, why pump that much voltage through your CPU, when it does not need it and creates much more heat.

Don't worry about the time lag between posts. real Life gets in the way for all of us. I would be happy to help you with your overclock, but that would ruin your warranty with Scan. If your system runs OK at stock, I would get back with Scan and advise them that the overclock they have is unstable and you would like a stable overclock using offset voltage and not manual. That is just a little more difficult, but it is the way the CPU was designed to work. It's more energy efficient, easier on the CPU and will make it run much cooler during normal usage. That is the way I run my CPU and I can run at 5GHz daily if I want to with no problems. I usually don't, but have and can. Simply because the speed of the CPU drops much lower frequency and voltage when not needed, but will quickly ramp up when put under stress. Having said that, I seriously doubt your CPU will do that plus you don't have the cooing for it, but you should be able to run a nice 4.5.

Greetings! Hope all is well.

Sorry for such a long delay with communication. Life has a way of evaporating time.

I just wanted to update you guys with the fact that since I disabled my OC in the BIOS, I haven't had a single BSOD. I have contacted scan now with hope that they can tweak my settings to get this stable and functioning once more.

I'd like to extend my thanks to you Essenbe and if you could, extend my thanks to derekimo for the awesome support you guys gave. It was greatly appreciated.

I will mark the thread as solved.

Take care <3

Kenlee, just make sure Scan overclocks it the right way. Using software or auto Vcore is not the right way and can end up causing you problems later on, as I think you found out. There is a proper way to do it, and I have no doubts they know how.

You are more than welcome for the help. I hope things work out well for you. Good luck.
