Windows 7: BSOD playing ESO, BCCode a.

Windows 10 Pro. 64/ version 1709 Windows 7 Pro/64

Core volts at 1.282 shouldn't be any problem.
I have mine set higher (1.312V) because of a over clock (4.1) but I have a lot better cooling.

Even at 1.282V I believe a better cooler is needed for a 950 cpu.

Some day I might find a use for all those Intel stock coolers.

Come to find out, heat was the issue. The day after the air conditioner was turned on, and every day since, everything is golden.

Considering my CPU's vcore was slightly higher than it really needed to be (People have OCed their 950s in the past with 1.2 to 1.3...), I lowered it to 1.18 while still trying to figure this out, and that in itself brought temps down a bit also. System is stable at that voltage, too, so there's that at least. I'm barely breaking 60c now, and that typically only happens in a Source Engine game.

In any event, big thanks to everyone for helping out! I guess I just didn't expect heat to be an issue after having just replaced two case fans and the TIM on the CPU. Turns out I was wrong! While I feel silly in that regard, at least I learned some more from the whole ordeal.

Marking as solved. Thanks again everyone!

I'm glad it has worked out for you. I would still consider a better CPU cooler.

Well you are heading in the right direction with your heat problem.

As Steve said; invest in a better cooler.
