    BSOD on Custom Build


    Good Evening,
    I recently had a computer custom built at my local Fry's (not so local though..) 2 weeks ago.
    On the second day, the CPU was BSOD hourly, and after bring it to Fry's, they said the power supply was bad, and they replaced it.
    I'm still having issues with random BSOD and would rather not bring it to Fry's to have them trouble shoot it for a few days, replace the "bad" component, and give it back to me with the same issue.
    My CPU and Motherboard temps average 30-35c even while gaming.

    I'm beyond the "return" time frame and only have 2 weeks of build support left from Fry's.
    Can someone please decode what the errors are saying and possibly point me in the right direction?
    Thank you soooo much!
    Sean

    Hi

    Your CPU seems to be overclocked and if i am not mistaken, it is intentional.

    Code:
    Core 0Core Speed: 4599.7 MHz
    Multiplier: x 46.0
    Bus Speed: 100.0 MHz
    Temperature: 32 C

    Overclocking is the best way to make a system unstable, crash , freeze or blue screen. First logical steps in BSOD troubleshooting is nothing but reverting any changes made to the CPU/RAM frequency and voltage modifications. You should first uninstall "Asus AI suit III" otherwise it will auto overclock the system. Then enter BIOS setup and load "optimal default values".

    You should also understand the merits and demerits of OC. There are certain situations where OC will benefit. Examples are "Autocad" and video rendering works. Those programs will show improved performance in higher clock speed. On the other hand, PC games are GPU centric and even the most CPU demanding games only require a basic quad core CPU like i5. None of today's games are capable of utilizing the full potential of your CPU and hence overclocking it is absolute unnecessary. By overclocking the CPU, you will get crashes instead of FPS increase.

    Thank you Anshad, I will set the OC to default and see if that helps.
    The reason I OC'd was due to the FPS in World of Warcraft. For some reason I was only getting 40-60 fps when I believe I should have been getting much more. (since other games like Batman and Metro Last Light are all smooth on ultra with no issues)
