    I didn't even put it together.

    I'll give it a few weeks at normal speed. It just crashed today after 3 days of being solid.

    Thanks and sorry

    Twisty I have been looking over your threads. They are all over for this problem.

    BSOD only when PC sits idle for random time.

    Likely this will be on the bclk. Another thing I noticed was the vcore is reporting at 1.808v.
    You need to stick with one thread so we can help you.
    1.808 vcore will fry your cpu and motherboard if it hasn't already.

    So please make sure you system is stock (default).

    it is 1.2v in the bios. It's falsely reporting it.

    that is the only thread I have...are you mistaken? This one is something totally different...

    We have no way of know what is falsely reported; all we can do is read your post.
    All these could be caused by the same thing. Over clocking and over heating.
    We are trying to help you but we can't chase you all over the forum.
    You may have more than one problem but you must be sure you don't have a overheating problem and your system will run default without problems before the other problems can be addressed.
    This is not tweeter or Facebook. This is the best Windows 7 help forum in the world. You must help us help you by concentrating on the subject at hand. Fixing your computer. Please post back in this thread so we all can follow how things are going.

    Now run your computer at default for a week or so. Watch your temps and record them. We need this information. If you have to remove the side panel because your system get to hot we need to know things like that.
    Heat will destroy a computer.

    It hasn't happened since I removed the side of my case to check the fans on the GFX card... hmmmmmm

    hope it's not an overheating issue. How do I check the temp of my gfx card?

    From here:
    BSOD only when PC sits idle for random time.

    The temps have been fine all this time. it's mainly that vcore that is puzzling me. Bios shows it as 1.2v, but the speccy shows 1.8v for some reason

    Vcore at 1.2 is great.
    Make sure Speccy is updated. Or you could remove it and reinstall it.

    You could also install Real Temp. It' works well with Intel cpu's.
    Only run one temp program at a time.

    I went back into the bios and noticed it was set to 1.072v, so that could explain it.

    I change it so 1.3v - should i put it at 1.2v?


    Also - forgot to mention it crashed while I was at work this whole time - sitting idle.

    I'll attach some screenies to show you what my BIOS looks like.
