    Hello ,

    I have recently bought a new CPU cooler , which is the corsair H100i. and after overcloking my i7 2600k to 4.5Ghz at 1.3v everything seemed fine. It passed 10 passes of intel burn test at very high , the highest it got was 76 on the hottest core and all the others were about 72 degrees celcius. Then after that I let it render for over 9 hours straight , rendering a 3d max simulation. the max it was was 69 degrees.

    Then the second day I was browing youtube , and having 3ds max open ( not rendering this time just modeling around nothing cpu intensive , it crashed and gave me a x124 BSOD) I cranked my vcore to 1.31 now.

    my specs are :

    CPU: i7 2600k
    Motherboard: Asus P8Z68 V-PRO GEN3
    Ram Speed, size and #sticks: (upgraded with my h100i ) 32 GB DDR3 1600Mhz
    GPU: Sapphire Radeon HD 6950
    PSU (do not leave this out): Coolermaster 800w Gold power supply
    OS: Windows 7 64 Bit

    So I would be forever greatfull if somebody could help me out. The minidump is included.

    Test it without overclocking it.. Tell us if it does the same again when you had over clocked it.

    It's a very nice system. Does it have a standard hard drive or an SSD?

    If the SSD is the boot drive, is it on a SATA 3 port configured ACHI in the bios?

    Got to be a bios setting. I have a Z77 chipset, so these tips may be a bit different for you:
    Disable C3/C6 state support and any CPU throttling in the UEFI bios. This should stabilize the computer

    "overclock seemed right"... Turn off the over-clocking and see if the BSOD's stop

    but you said it was boot drive instability?

    Over-clocking can cause the boot drive to mis-read... and cause instability in general
