    Windows 8.1 Consumer Preview


    This is a wierd error that has popped up at least 3 times now. I would like to mention that my CPU IS overclocked and has been since I bought the system about 3 years ago. The system had bsod a handful of times in the 3 years that I have owned it (was pretty stable, all of them were driver errors iirc) and these errors started around the time I installed nvidia's 325.xx line of drivers.

    I have read that the most likely cause is corrupt memory, but I would like someone to take a look at the dump file and see what they can find while I run a bunch of tests.


    Edit: I would like to also say that I was running Windows 8 before I installed 8.1 and it was happening there too
