    BSOD due to graphics card

    I've had my NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 graphics card for about a month and a half now, and for that first month everything was working just fine, but the past couple of weeks I get what I first thought were random BSODs but after a while I noticed it was only happening during times when I was either using the GPU heavily (Gaming/Video editing and encoding) or when I was changing driver settings. Still not completely sure what's wrong with it, I've only noticed that correlation. So if anyone would like to help me out, I've got the SF diagnostic files attached.

    Other system info:
    Intel i5 4670K
    Asus Z87A Motherboard
    Corsair Vengance 8GB DDR3-1600 RAM
    OS: Windows 8.1

    Among other reasons, an overclocked CPU is one of the main reason behind this particular BSOD. So please disable any frequency and voltage tweaks immediately before it completely kill your processor. Please follow the below steps.

    1. Uninstall Asus AI Suit software first (auto overclocking software). Than reset the system BIOS and load setup default values.

    How To Clear CMOS (Reset BIOS)

    This will make sure system is running on default settings.

    2. Uninstall "Daemon Tools Pro".

    This software is a known problem maker. Besides that, "Windows 8" doesn't require a third party app to mount ISO images. Please uninstall "Daemon Tools" first and run "SPTD Remover" to make sure the SPTD driver is uninstalled properly.

    Press the "Uninstall" button to remove SPTD ( if not grayed out).

    Let us know how the system works.
