    I used to get this after I overclocked my 2600k using Asus suite. It only did it when the CPU was being worked though. Like bluray encoding. I reset the overclock in bios and did in again manually at a slightly lower clock and all is well.

    Win8.1Pro - Finally!!!

    Sorry for the delay in responding. There just aren't that many people who do BSOD analysis, so at times we get a bit overwhelmed!

    If you're overclocking, please stop the overclock while we're troubleshooting. Feel free to resume the overclock once the system has been stabilized.

    Please provide this information so we can provide a complete analysis: Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions

    If using a wireless USB network adapter:
    I do not recommend using wireless USB network devices. Especially in Win7/Win8 systems.
    These wireless USB devices have many issues with Win7(and I suspect with Win8) - using Vista drivers with them is almost sure to cause a BSOD.
    Should you want to keep using these devices, be sure to have Win7/Win8 drivers - DO NOT use Vista drivers!!!
    An installable wireless PCI/PCIe card that's plugged into your motherboard is much more robust, reliable, and powerful.
    AMD OverDrive (AODDriver2.sys) is either a stand-alone application, or a component of the AMD VISION Engine Control Center. This driver is known to cause BSOD's on some Windows systems.
    Please un-install all AMD/ATI video stuff from Control Panel...Programs...Un-install a program
    Then, download (but DO NOT install) a fresh copy of the ATI drivers from (in the upper right corner of the page)
    Use this procedure to install the DRIVER ONLY: ATI video cards - DRIVER ONLY installation procedure - Sysnative Forums

    If the device (AODDriver or AODDriver4.01) remains a problem, open Device Manager, select the "View" item.
    Then select "Show hidden devices" and scroll down to the Non-Plug and Play Drivers section.
    Locate the AODDriver entry, right click on it and select "Un-install". Reboot for changes to take affect.
    Sometimes the driver remains and continues to cause BSOD's. If this is the case for you, post back and we'll give further instructions for safely removing it.

    If overclocking, please stop. Remove the overclock and return the system to stock/standard values while we're troubleshooting. Once the system is stable again, feel free to resume the overclocking.

    This memory dump is a memory error that involves your video drivers.
    1) update your video drivers from the ATI website
    2) Also, monitor your system's temperatures with this free tool: HWMonitor CPUID - System & hardware benchmark, monitoring, reporting
    Normally temps shouldn't exceed:
    CPU - 60บC
    GPU - 80บC
    HDD and other components - 40บC
    3) run these free diagnostics: Hardware Diagnostics
    Run all the tests as they all involve memory (to include the hard drive - as it stores the pagefile for virtual memory) - but start with the video tests.

    Please update these older drivers. Links are included to assist in looking up the source of the drivers. If unable to find an update, please remove (un-install) the program responsible for that driver. DO NOT manually delete/rename the driver as it may make the system unbootable! :
